Keep in mind that to do good quality backups with DVD2one here are a few of my favorite things…
1st> CLEAN the original disk…no fingerprints!
2nd> CREATE a directory first called “moviename_burn”
3rd> CREATE 2 new folders in “moviename_burn” VIDEO_TS and if you like AUDIO_TS (although I burned a movie with just the all caps VIDEO_TS in the compilation and plays fine. S)
4th > DVD Decrypter… File mode works very good. Get a few of the other ‘beginning’ files, such as VIDEO_TS.IFO and such DVD2ONE will use what it needs.
5th > Use the DVD2ONE and now point the “destination” to your above created VIDEO_TS.
6th> BURN in UDF or UDF/ISO mode, Level 1, ISO 9660 NO Joliet, UDF vers 2.01 and just click and drop the VIDEO_TS folder that has the files in it now that DVD2one created.
7th> MOST IMPORTANT !! Use very good media. I can’t stress this enough. I’ve used Maxell 2X, TDK 2X, Ritek 4X and have always had great success with them. I have used HYpermedia 1X (that’s all they are good for and not even that!) from CMC in Taiwan. Junk!! Crap!!! I threw away the remaing 5 of the 10 pack. Will skip, pause, pixelate, the end not show up good. etc etc. It (using poor media) will make you THINK you or your sofwater is doing poorly. the media can be so variable it’s a flip of the coin on cheap media if you get a good burn or another piece for a Mobile.
8th> SOLITUDE. …shhh burning DVD… I know this sounds odd, but when I burn I leave the room. a DVD burns to a track of 0.79 Micron… pretty small. That is why media is more expensive… and THAT is why DVD burners cost more… the tolerance has to be so much higher on DVD than on CD. 0.79 is really a small amount of space. a red blood cell is 9.0 micron… the smallest visible thing for a human to detect is somewhere in the neighborhood of 39 micron… so 0.79 is really a very small track. I can’t prove it,but can you imagine a laser burning it’s information and you ‘thump’ the side of the computer case and cause a vibration?
This last idea is just my quirk. so take it or leave it, but I know I walk away very softly and have excellent results from burns…
NERO version 188.8.131.52b is the one I’m using and seems to burn a very compatible DVD. Rene’ has talked about a 184.108.40.206 but I have not seen it crop up as yet. Perhaps it is really the “b”.??
