DVD Fails To Burn - Platinum V5

vbimport

#1

To all - a plea for help! I have yet to burn a successful disc with version 5 of DVD Fab. I had zero problems with version 4, other than the odd instance with a new protection scheme. I am currently using 5.0.4.0

No matter what I do, I get the error message “Disc failed to burn” and yet another coaster.

I typically use the full disc mode. I read thru this post and adjusted my setting and tried the various suggestions, but nothing seems to help.

As for media, it seems like many have bought stock in Verbatim :), but I use TDK, Sony, Verbatim and Memorex (currently working thru a spindle of TDK) with zero problems other than DVDfab. I am using Vista Home Premium SP1 and have a Plextor PX-810SA giving me zero problems burning DVDs with Premier Elements, Nero and DVD Decrypter.

With a given DVD, I can create and burn an archive DVD using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink (as long as the copy protection can be dealt with by DVD Decrypter). The exact same DVD fails with DVDfab 5. So I know that the hardware and media is working just fine. Also, I have zero problems creating a PSP MP4 with any of my DVDs using the mobile option.

I’d like to exhaust all possibilities before asking for a refund – any ideas?

Thanks for your help!

please post a burn log for us to review.
my documents/ dvdfab/ logs

please set your write speed to 8x and your write type to SAO.

straight from the Plextor PX-810SA data sheet:

i see you have dvd decrypter. there is an update to the dvd decrypter burning engine. its called ImgBurn. its free and can be used with dvdfab. i use imgburn instead VSO.

imgburn is very easy to setup:

– download from http://www.imgburn.com/ and install

– change one setting in imgburn
----tools/ settings/ build/ dont prompt image details

– in dvdfab write settings change burn engine to imgburn

the imgburn logs can be found:

I have had exactly the same problems. DVDFab has been “Fab” until recently. I am running DVDFab 5 (the very latest version) I read the MAIN MOVIE only, its stores it and fails to burn. Sometimes it thinks its burning and says “writing”, other times it thinks it has not got the right media in (Media, tried is TDK, Memorex). I uninstalled and reinstalled DVDFab on my Dell Inspiron 6400, with 1 GB ram and windows XP. I checked the drivers on the DVD/CD RW were up to date - this time it even seemed to writ half then failed. Its also screwed my old version, because I went all the way back to Version 3. So the FAB guys have clearly dropped down on their QC.

Here is my Log File:

Hi bobsyouruncle and welcome to cdfreaks,

As my good friend Troy mentioned above to the OP,
please change to [B]SAO[/B] Write Type instead of your current selection of Packet writing.
Also note that your burn log in May, which was probably successful (not clear from your post) had [B]SAO[/B] selected.

Your media choices are probably"ok", but not the best stuff for sure.
Please reduce your burn speed to 4X with this media.
I’m guessing your selected burn speed is “recommended” which is the default setting and quite frankly, stinks.
Try 4X…:wink:


#5

Sorry, I thought I attached the file! I’ll paste it in below. Anyway, I hear ya on the recommended media - but why would only DVDfab have an issue with a media type? I’m an engineer-type and I can’t see any logical reason for media issues if the same hardware/firmware/OS is being used. AND, it worked just fine with version 4 ( I was working on the same spindle of blanki TDKs - so it is even the same batch!). So the media argument doesn’t make any sense to me.

I have tried it at every allowable write speed (including 8x) and my coaster collection keeps growing.

Here is the log:

and keep the speed at 8x. when you were trying to write at 16x you were getting errors.

it seems like many have bought stock in Verbatim

my posting of the media was in response to this statement.

i have used and do sometimes use other media besides Taiyo Yuden. sometimes nero doesnt like my Memorex RitekF1 DVD-R media. still i use TYG02 media most of the time.

my instructions for using ImgBurn is a very good option. especially if you are comfortable with using DVD Decrypter.

imgburn is very easy to setup:

– download from http://www.imgburn.com/ and install

– change one setting in imgburn
----tools/ settings/ build/ dont prompt image details

– in dvdfab write settings change burn engine to imgburn

the imgburn logs can be found:
help/ imgburn logs

Thanks for the help Troy512! I changed all the setting suggested withing DVDfab, same coaster output. I installed imgburn, worked perfectly, TDK media gave a verified burn at 15.3x!

It hurts a bit to have to use a second app to make the one I paid $50 for work propery - but at least I’m functional again.

Hi - as someone pointed out DVDFab has worked. In my case for nearly 2 years without fail. Their support girl Ellen, kindly suggest turning the speed down and checking my drivers. But if the software worked then my Kit works fine as the other guy commented. My view is that its not my Kit, its DVDFab QC not testing properly and $50 is enough that they should. I cant be bothered to trial and error different burners, install, search late at night for firmware updates, that may screw something else up. I have modern machines that work, so DVDFab (if you read this forum, which I am sure you are) you need to fix it, because your good Rep, will disappear quickly. If DVDFab recommend lowering the default writing setting - then make that the default. You would have thought with webex, someone from DVD would invite a screen sharing to check for the customer - I would pay for that !! NO - if it worked and the hardware is the same then its the software - thats my rant (sorry)

[QUOTE=bobsyouruncle;2090227]Hi [/QUOTE]

Hi again,
On the one hand, I certainly can understand your rant.
On the other hand, there is nothing complicated about changing the Fab settings that I suggested in post #4.
Your settings in May were not retained, ie., [B]SAO[/B] vs. Packet writing…as can be seen in your most recently posted burn log…
and your burning too fast given the media you’re using.

If the above does not do it and you no longer wish to pursue troubleshooting, then I leave you with your rant…:wink:

Hi Bobs,
I agree with what you are saying. Seems like when Fab gets updated there are more problems that people seem to have. Perhaps the program is trying to do to much. I thought the original intent was to backup movies, whether full disc or main movie only. I have been using the product for over 2 years. I do not use split modes, customize modes. or any of the mobile modes or other stuff. I use main movie or full disc backup to single layer dvd with an occasional burn to double layer media. I have found that some of the other options do not work all the time. I look at the cdfreaks posts almost everyday. The answers to the problems seem the same…bad media, firmware upgrades, certain drives can only read certain media, etc. Makes no sense. Should be able to download software and go, pretty much like the product advertisement states.


#11

I am having problem with the software asking me for a double layer DVD. Is there a setting I need to change?


#12

please read the official guide
http://www.dvdfab.com/docs/

For short movies or to make a long movie fit on a DVD5 single layer disc, choose DVD5. DVDFab will compress the material to make it fit; choose DVD-9 to make a copy with no compression and burn to double/dual layer blank disc. The Quality percentage reflects the amount of compression; 100% Quality=no compression.


#13

I’m having the same issue with DVDFAB 5. I get message saying that the burn failed every time even after the suggested changes. But the discs are all good burns. Going to try imgburn now see if that helps, but if it says fail, try the disc out before you make it a coaster.

Hi

I m Fabrice from VSO, which provides the burning SDK.
If you have any trouble with the burning SDK and if you have a live account such MSN or Yahoo or Skype, please contact me in private message and I will review your case personnally.
I can’t really enter the discussion as there are a lot of things to check and read, and also because we have maybe already fixed the problem with our own latest burning SDK dll. but if you have still the problems please contact me.
