DVDFAB - error problems

Hi all
new here and really needing help.

I have been using an older copy of DVD Fab without any problems at all, inc DVDRegion+CSS. All of a sudden I began to get failed burns, basically, drive just threw the DVD out every time, regardless of type of DVD inserted. As stated this is a recent problem. Eventually, I got an error code of 16. It will however work, if I copy to a folder, and burn from the folder. It just seems to be direct copy thats the problem.

I have now updated both DVD Fab and DVD Region and still have the same problem, although it now reports error 116.

Strangely, this also happens on my laptop, both errors have appeared at the same time. The only new software I have added to either machine is the Retail software for my Canon DigiCam, which I doubt is the problem.

Any help at all would be very welcome.
I am using Windows XP Pro, SP2, I have Roxio on my system which has always worked fine with the above software, and a Version of Pinnacle too. My writer is a Sony DVD-RW-222A Dual layer. System is top spec, memory nor processor is the issue.

Hi iant, and welcome! Why not try by uninstalling your canon SW, just to make sure that is not the prob. What media are you using? Can you post a log?

Have just uninstalled the Canon Software, and any other software that may be repsonsible. I have tried three media types, Datawrite Titanium vx2 4.7gb DVD+R
Ridisc DVD+R DL, Datawrite Yellow, RW and also a budget one that has always worked.
I am just about to try again. Where do I find the log for this software??

t0nee1 is right, a burn log would help us help you. Instructions for this are in the bottom link in my sig if needed.

Hi iant789,

Few suggestions:
In Common Settings change[B] Write Type [/B] to [B]SAO[/B].

There’s no benefit to running DVDRegion+CSS with Platinum, only problems, platinum will do it all. Both will attempt to decrypt and conflicts are very likely. It’s not sufficient just not to run CSS as it runs in the background…it needs to be disabled. I would either uninstall it (keep your regkey, but the app is no longer being developed and is becoming obsolete) or in
msconfig > Startup, disable it.

Just an FYI, Sonic and Roxio have been known to cause conflicts with other burning software. Many users have a problem, many do not. You may want to look here if your problem persisits.

What is your “target size”? Were these files compressed?
The default (I think) is 4300 MB…change this to [B]4472 MB[/B].

Hope this helps.

Media ID: TTH02
I would also try some better media i.e. Verbatims or TY’s…

Latest log. There is no incompatible software on the machine, I have just wiped it, all that is on here now is Windows XP Pro SP2 and DVDFab, nothing else. This system worked fine until a couple of days ago. I am well baffled.
