DVDFab6 Lag in movie

I just d/l DvdFab6, 6.0.1.0 30day trail just to give it a shot. I copied Gran Torino to my hard drive, then burnt it to disc (Memorex dual layer) disc has worked well with other movies I have done on other software.

Now to my actual question, I would say a little ways before the half way point in the movie around 1:01:29 (think that’s the right with out getting the movie going again) it pause’s for 5sec or so then skips ahead in the movie which I miss roughly 3mins of it, happen each time same spot. Was able to rewind a little ways just after and see the stuff I missed. Every thing on the movie seemed to work fine besides that 3min lag point. I happen to close everything down when I was done and can’t find any of the files for that burn.

I did Full disc at DVD9, using Sony DRX-840U as my Driver

Looked around and if there’s a post about this I guess I missed it. Is it something I am doing wrong or just a glitch and I have to re-burn it?

Well to be honest with you your media you used (Memorex) is not the best for doing video archiving, it is low quality and sometimes can be problematic at times.
Since you are using the 30 day trial not sure why you copied to your HDD then burned from there :confused: is there a reason why you didn’t do it during the rip process…i.e… “Full Disc” mode or “Clone” mode ?
What was used for the burn process ?
The burn speed may be a factor in your playback issue, it also sounds like the problem may be right around the layer break but that is just a guess.

The burn log would still be there, and that would be helpful. I agree that it sounds like it is near the layer break, but it sounds like you can rewind and see the parts that were jumped, which sounds like a player issue.

Still a bit new to making copy’s of dvd’s which I will say is the cause for extra steps taken when doing it.

Here’s the logs I could find (ended up in different spot then I thought I had them being sent too).

Grand Torino

Watched Mallrats all the way through and there was not one problem with it.

Those Memorexdiscs are made by ritek :Z

Which are low to poor quality and are known to have problematic issues during playback, also your log shows
2009-06-10 15:13:28 Info [B]Writing speed requested x8.0,[/B] effective x8.0
which is way to fast for double layer discs specially those poor quality brands.

Look at the layer break positions reported in your log:
Mallrats: [B]Layer change set to LBA 1691456 (3.23 Gb.) [/B](which played fine) was not written nearly as close to the edge of the disc as
Gran Torino: [B]Layer change set to LBA 2041392 (3.89 Gb.)[/B] (which skipped). As others have suggested, better media, slower speeds needed here.

I had a very similar problem last year when I purchased my external DVD burner and began using DVDFab Platinum.

I started with TDK+R DL because I never had problems with TDK in the past.

Well every DL disc I burned had problems near the layer break. There would be freezing and pixelation. I did not know about write speed at that point either.

After reading about media in these forums, I quickly purchased some Verbatim DVD+R DL Made in Singapore and have not had any problems with DL burning since. I always use a 2.4x write speed.

So my suggestion is to use Verbatim MIS at 2.4x.

Yup…that has been my point in this thread too, the media and write speed :iagree:
which are the two biggest factors of playback issues :bigsmile:
