Hello all , please excuse my newness to dvd forums, and indeed to any internet forum. I have read a post by tigerjuju 16-06-2005 relating to burn problems with DVD-VRs. I was wondering if anyone could please possibly offer any modern solutions to copying DVD-VRs. I have an MTV (yes, laughably generic) DVD-recorder which actually records in fine quality. However when a file is copied to a DVD-R, finalised, then reads as a DVD-VR in My Computer, I cannot copy with either Shrink or Nero because of read errors, even though the disc plays fine in any DVD player that I have tried and in my DVD player program on my PC. I believe there may be older (or newer?) versions of Shrink or Nero and that one may also be able to use DVD Decrypter, but I do not know how. Thanking you in advance, best regards, Rick
DVD-VR is compatible with DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD DL-R media. It is not compatible with +R media.
I never use DVD+R, only DVD-R. My burned discs come out fine, it’s reading them and copying them on my pc that is the issue
Can anyone else please possibly offer some advice, thank
Ulead Movie Factory 6, I used it to copy VR files recorded on DVD-RAM to DVD-R
I use clonedvd2 to copy DVD+RW VR to my harddrive, and then burn to a ±R. I have not tried any -R or -RW VR discs yet. If you use clonedvd2 be sure you don’t have ANYDVD running or it will throw things off.
Will try, thank you very much, kind regards
I wil try this, thanks very much, kind regards
Hi there , just so you know and anyone else who is interested, clonedvd2 wouldn’t read my VR files on DVD-R.
Rick; last week I found this ‘VR extractor’, which wasn’t much good for a +VR disc but you might find it useful.
Which optical drives are in your computer?
I just got through trying a -VR in CloneDVD2, it didn’t work for me either. I don’t know why it works for the +VR and not the other.
