DVD-R help

Ok I have tried several different options on burning a movie onto a dvd-r with ConvertXtoDVD and cant seem to get it to play in any dvd player, even when i put the disc back into my computer it shows it as like a blank disc. Could u tell me what I am doing wrong.

Hi there,

7/27/2006 7:16:18 AM info Writing speed requested x8.0, effective x2.4
7/27/2006 7:16:18 AM info Available write speed: 8x, 6x, 4x, 2x
7/27/2006 7:16:18 AM info Media ID: ProdiscF01

I would not burn those higher than 2x.

Those are real low quality media.

I am trying to see if there is a firmware upgrade for your drive, but can’t seen to find one !

My 2 cents…

Just a word of advice.

Before doing this type of conversion rename the movie to something quite innocent then when you have a problem & post the log it won’t be obvious that what you’ve got is an illegally downloaded movie.

Personally I’d never do a conversion like this with a direct burn to a DVD. I’d either just create the HD folder & files & then burn separately with Nero (for example) or create an image file & burn with ImgBurn. This last option doesn’t seem to be available to this app.
