Dvdfab Platinum Help!

I recently just tried to burn Transformers onto a dvd. It compressed it to 56% quality but when I tried to watch the movie on my dvd-r it worked fine all the way up to the end of the movie where it started skipping and eventually was unable to read the disc. Is there a way to fix this or is the movie just too long?

Welcome to the forum chump0,what type of media are you using,what is your burn speed?

I am using sony dvd-rw version 1.3 discs and I am not sure of my burn speed…is there a way I can see find that out…I dont see anywhere for settings on my dvd platinum.

I just found my settings and it is on recommended for the burn speed

Fab save a log it will tell you there,look for a dvd fab folder in “my documents”.DVD-RW media is not so good to burn a dvd on.Try either +r or-r.

I believe it is at 16x

16x is to fast,change from recommended to 8x. Also paste your last burn log: C:\Documents and Settings…user name…\My Documents\DVDFab\Log\DVDFab_burn_VSO.log. This is a text file that you can open with Notepad and copy and paste entries into a reply post.

The drive firmware apparently doesn’t like the Sony media:

10/21/2007 8:48:48 PM info Writing speed requested x16.0, effective x2.4

/EDIT/ And a very old version of DVDFab.

What does that mean exactly with the writing speed and effective x2.4

10/21/2007 8:48:48 PM info Writing speed requested x16.0, effective x2.4
10/21/2007 8:48:48 PM info Available write speed: 12x, 8x, 6x, 4x, 16x
A couple of things:
1 Check set booktype to dvd-rom in settings(you are using dvd+r not dvd-rw)
2 Set your write spped to 8x(recommened is only burning at 2.4)
3 Most important download newest version you are using 3.0.2.0 newest is 3.2.1.0 you can find it at the top of this forum.
4 change read for auto to spti
EDTI: by the time this old eyes finish typing Signals was on it,Thanks Signals my fingers are wearing down to almost nothing. :bigsmile:

ok im gonna give it another shot on the newer version and my new settings.

Post back good or bad. Later

Fingers still OK here (at least no worse than normal), but the old eyeballs have a time with the burn logs. Good to see you.:slight_smile:
