Hello,today I use dvdfab for the first time,all seem to go well,dvdfab say burn succesfull but, when I put back the dvd in the drive,auto run come up with dvd blanc what do you want to do etx.I then loock in my computer right clik then explore and s nothing on the disc.
Am using DVDFAB version 4 but also try version 5 same thing,the dvd disc I use are Datawrite ,so will I be right to think is the disc that is not compatible?in with case any one could recomend a good media also I must stress that when I put the dvd in the first place I keep getting mesage no media find in drive E and have to keep putting another disc.
Well hope that some clever person can find asolution to my problem.

check dvdfab’s source and target on the main screen. Make sure your target is your dvd drive and not your hdd. Sometimes my target changes to the hdd instead of my dvd drive and this usually happens after I update. Also good media to use are verbatim and taiyo yuden but unsure if you can get them in the UK.

Thank you the target is same as sourse so must be the disc that the program dont like,will try another disc,I have verbatim cdr and they are good will see If I can get the dvd one,thanks for your time

xfactor4u,

In the above reply you said " the target is same as source".:confused:
You [U][B]cannot[/B][/U] write to your source disc.

Make sure the “Destination” is always different from your “Source”.

Your “Destination” should be either your DVD-RW drive or
Hard Disc Drive.

A few other suggestions:
Use good media like Verbatim.
Burn your disc at a moderate speed… never max speed.

Hope this helps…


#6

Source and Target [B]can[/B] be the same (and are for many users) as long as the Source drive is a DVD burner. DVDFab will prompt for insertion of a blank disc after the Source is copied.


#7

Absolutely, I am thinking he was trying to rip and burn in one shot, using 2 different drives.

Thanks…


#8

am correct by saying that because I only got one drive on the laptop
I may see if I can get some update for the drive as I dont have this problem with my pc Thanks guys


#9

The laptop drive may not be a DVD burner, just a player. You may also have a conflict with other software on the laptop that does not exist on your desktop.

@Psycho6
You are correct, no way to rip on the fly with DVDFab, didn’t think about the possibility. :slight_smile:


#10

I am running into the same problem. I can’t burn from the DVD burner to a disk. I will get a disk that hangs and skips. So I rip it to the HDD and then burn to a disk. When I burn to my DVD burner on my laptop I use IMGburn and all is set the way it needs to be. I get a Process Complete but then get a blank disk. Any ideas???


#11

my drive is a Optiarc dvd rw ad-7530 a so we know we can burn dvd I have burn cd with no problems but like some guys say before on here u ned to use good medias ,this drive has no problems with Verbatim cd-r so I will buy Vertabim dvd ,my other pc has no problem using almost any cd or dvd but then u can go online to update the drive to work with new medias I have done that But,you cant update the firmware for the Optiarc and I wish the manufacture with is Nec/Sony tel us with media are compatible for this particular drive this will save lot of time and money Thanks guys


#12

@ xfactor4u and jossef,

please download IMGBURN. if you already have imgburn please reset the settings to default. please run dvdfab with target as hard drive folder. open imgburn in build mode. select 8x as burn speed and navigate to your source folder (created with dvdfab video_ts folder)

please post a burn log.


#13

In addition to Troy’s suggestion to post a burn log from Img…if you have any from VSO where it looks like something actually burned, please post these as well.

The default location is:
[B]C:\Documents and Settings[I]Administrator Name[/I]\My Documents\DVDFab\Log[/B]

Are these failed “blank discs” really blank? You should still be able to use them if they’re truly blank. If not, try to open the discs with IsoBuster and see what you’ve got.

Are the ripped files on your hdd intact? Are you able to view the movies with a software player such as VLC, Powerdvd, Nero showtime?

If the performance of your burner is in question, you might consider running some tests with nero cd-dvd speed, such as the standard tests (benchmark), create a disc; and on burned discs, run a quality scan.
(link in my sig for cd-dvd speed).

xfactor4u, as you said, firmware for this drive seems to be a bit more than just elusive…as in non-existent. I recall trying to chase this down once before and found this:

I think your only hope is gateway, which doesn’t bode well…:rolleyes:

According to the log, one quick and easy change to make when using VSO…
change from packet writing to [B]SAO[/B].
This may resolve your problem.
Oh, and CMC media can vary greatly in terms of consistency…in the words of our friends across the pond…CMC media, often is a bit dodgy.

I gotta run…kids are taking me out to brunch, be back in a bit.
I’ll take a closer look later on.

Hope this helps

[Edit]
Also, 8X is too fast for this media…slow down to 6X or even 4X

I’m having issues urning DVDs as well. Imgburn says it was a successful burn but the disc is blank and using DVDFab to burn sometimes results in DVDFab spitting the disc back out not long into the burn. Ithink this is a Vista issue for me though because if I try to burn with XP in a virtual machine, everything burns fine.
