ok i couldn't find my other thread so im starting it again but this one is updated i haven't made one successful backup yet im currently trying matrix using dvd shrink + nero and media RITEKG04 burning at x2.4 ( there only 2.4 x but i normally burn at slow speeds cuz when i burn at max i got problems with cds anyway) but im afraid to make too many dvd coasters as i alreayd have about 20 :a any ideas? im willing to try anything i used to use memorex ( i forgot the code on it ) but i switched to Ritek g04 when told tat it was really good for back ups ... any help will be appreciated
What are you reading it with?
usually thats either the media or the device cant read the media correctly.
does the dvd play back ok in your computer?
If so try some different media. If you have an older dvd player you might wanna try -r media.
i just bought ritek g04's - r ... i computer sucks at everytime i play something it pixelates but it runs fine on my dvd player as far as origonals go so i never try my comp to play them but i mean i let my friend try it on his comp and thye freeze/pixelate same on his ps2 and on his dvd player i gave it to another friend he says the same so i have no clue i mean unless my origonals got messed up?
Good Morning. You did not give too much info on your equipment. Old DVD players have a hard time reading DVD-. Players made after 2002 will work better. Do not write the full 4.7GH on your disk. Back off to about 4.1GBbecause many disk start having reading problems at the edge of disks.Ritex G04 disk are OK. I do not use Nero to burn. One does not need it.I only have three programs to copy and burn. CloneDVD, DVD Decrypted and DVD Shrink. If you use CloneDVD get AnyDVD to remove the CSS codes or CloneDVD will not read the disk. You need not get anything else.These three programs will do it all. DVD Shrink does not burn disks.I hope this helps. roberson
i already knew about those programs but when i tried clone dvd with anydvd it went through ( as far as getting passed the css protection) but it kept giving me some other errors i don't remember i think im gonna try it again and see how that works i know dvd shrink doesn't burn but it does if u set it to bur with nero ( well doesn't burn but leads right into it ) and if i use dvd shrink or clone dvd with any dvd do i really need dvd decryptor? cuz it takes up like 10 gigs per one dvd.... and i have a brand new dvd player um.... many if u tell me the steps you use the programs in or what you do with them to get a perfect copy or somehting icuz i have a feeling its somthing im doing i just use dvd shrink to my c drive then burn the dvd files toa dvd
