DVD Fab Write Error

I am Using the Current version of DvdFab Platinum Mobile option. I have burned many discs using this program and never had a problem. The recorder i am using is an hp DVD Writer 1060r Its only like 2 maybe 3mo old. I am Using Nexxtech media which i kno isnt that great but ive backup like 25 of my dvd’s already know starting yesterday its wont burn. Its goes through the first stage Fine. Its starts the second stage it writes aout 1/4 of the movie u can see it on the back of the disk, but the percent counter in dvdfab stays at 0%…so it wants to write but its like the program isnt working. Ive done a clean un-install going through the registry and suck did a clean using Regseeker then defraged the comp. Downloaded a new file from Dvdfab website. Made sure the dma is good. and still wont go through the write process…Any Ideas Please help

Hi brets11507,

Sorry for your trouble. It sounds like you’re using Platinum DVD to DVD and not the Mobile option, but anyway…

Please post a burn log or 2.
It sounds like this may be a VSO (Fab’s default burn engine) issue. There have been many user issues with VSO over the past 6 months or so.
I’m just guessing here since I don’t know details.

The default location is:
[B]C:\Documents and Settings[I]Administrator Name[/I]\My Documents\DVDFab\Log[/B]

Also, recommend that you download and install Img…a superior burn engine…best of the best IMO.
Fab is able to communicate with Img within the app.
Just choose Img in [B]Common Settings > Write[/B].

For seamless SL burns, please make the following change in Img:

[B]tools > settings > build > don’t prompt image details[/B]

You right those Nexxtech media not good and just because you have used them without issue doesn’t mean your luck will last, with it starting the burn process then craps out could mean that the laser is having trouble focusing on the disc or it have incountered a bad sector.
You will be better off using Verbatim brand media which you’ll find the MID(media ID) will not change on you from pack to pack like the other brands

Sorry Tom
my ESP must be turned off, didn’t see you typing :bigsmile:

Yeah, you’re right…the media is always the first thing to look at…sounds like the OP is aware?
Well, the burn logs should tell the tale.

Moved to the DVDFab forum, where the Fabulous Faithful will certainly continue to help you brets11507.

Ok i Started a new session cuz there were a ton of them with me messing around trying to get this to work so i started a new one. I also tried using Imgburn and had no luck. But i will give it a try with the box u told me to check. In the mean time as soon as i have the logs i will post them

Do you really think it is just a media Problem>? And what kinda media would u suggest? (Brand Name)?

I see you didn’t remove the check mark[B] ->[/B] I 16:45:57 Test Mode: [B]Yes[/B]
well Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim :bigsmile:

Your blank media (UME02) is garbage…I think they’re made in China these days, but they’re crap.

It looks like your Liteon, at least started to write with this media, but the burn speed is all screwy. It doesn’t look as though your HP has a prayer with this media.

Before you sink any more time into this, do yourself a favor and pick up some [B]Verbatim[/B] media…available in the usual brick & mortar stores as well as online. [B]Taiyo Yuden [/B]is excellent, but only available online for most of the world.

I know you were burning this media previously and it could be that you’ll get some marginally successful burns with some of the remaining blanks, but it’s not worth it.
If you decide to try it, use a fixed speed of 8X…not recommended and certainly not 10X or even 6X.
Even if they burn, I suspect they will be unplayable in 6 months or less.
