I'm a newb to all this and started a trial with DVDFab 188.8.131.52. I'm not sure what kind of burner my Toshiba Satellite A300-D5310 laptop uses and i'm also using Window Vista if that helps. The media i've been using Verbatim media DVD+R DL, 8.5GB, 8X. The first couple of movies worked fine but the 3 got wasted on errors. I didn't think to copy the error at the time and post it here but usually these errors would occur right at the end of the writing process when it was about 99% finished.
I ran a defragment after this but still errors.
The log below is the most recent, which i used a TDK DVD+R DL, 8.5GB, 8x for. The difference with this error is that the error began at the start of writing process when it was about 5% in.
Is there anything else i can post to help identify the problem ?
What am i doing wrong ?
Help ? :rolleyes:
