Dvds no longer work on Dvd player when burned as data

#1

All of a sudden Dvds no longer work on my dvd player when burned as data… Same PC, Dvd burner, Dvd player, burning programs, and blank Dvds… Tried plenty of other Dvd players but they don’t work on any of them, also reformated and took it back to the shop where i bought it from and they can’t find the prob either… Even tried a new Dvd burner to be safe. Funny thing is if I only burn one data movie it works fine it’s when i try and burn more then one that it doesn’t work. Btw PC says burned successfully when i’m done and Pc is an Acer Veriton with Vista Business.

Anybody ever hear of this problem???

Thx in advance if anyone can help

Hi and Welcome!

I suspect your burning software does something not right. If it has an option for DVD video, you should choose this. Or try some other DVD burning software - Imgburn is a highly regarded free solution.

I am assuming your source material is standard DVD video material.

The DVDs cannot be the same except you have used rewriteable media.

What media have you used?

Hey thx for the welcome :slight_smile:

I’ve tried a few different programs but none seem to work normally i use Nero 7 which has alway been fine… Just stopped working one day…

As for the dvds i use Ati but to make sure it wasn’t a bad batch i tried a few others (Epro, Benq,TDk, Fortis, and a couple more that i can’t remember) and triede both -&+R Dvds. I’m confused :confused:

What burning software have you used?

Could you supply a burninglog and try burning at 8x?

Nero 7, Ashampoo, Nti, And the basic windows burner.

Usaully burn at 4x but will give it a shot at 8x as well if you think it might make a difference. As for the burnlog Can’t at the moment cause useing my pc right now and the one not burning is my girlfriends but when it burns it dose say successful… Will try and get the log later in the day.


#7

Could you please use the free Imgburn?


#8

Will let you know what happens thx alot.

You may check if there is some entry in the eventlog or just use Windows System Restore to get back to a previous system state.

Sorry, I wasn’t referring to blank media (most of that list don’t seem to be reliable btw), I was thinking of the video files themselves.

Perhaps it helps if you descrbe the process as detailled as possible.

Honestly I wouldn’t be able to give a date of when this started cause it was a while ago and we just kept leaving the movies on the Pc when it stopped working :o.

As for the video files still using the same as before and been using Ati dvds for years never had any trouble, also the process hasn’t changed at all: Using Nero I go on Data Dvd, add the files, select burning speed (4x) and click burn. It actually says successfuly burned when done.

Strangest thing is that just burning one file on the dvd and it will work on the dvd player… More then one and it sats bad disc!!!

I’ll try Imgburn like a couple of you suggested but the way things have been going not going to get my hopes up…

BAD PC :a!!!

Normally, you’d have a video_ts folder, and you should select the “DVD video” project type in your DVD burning application.
If this is some other stuff, this must not necessarily be supported by your player-

and been using Ati dvds for years never had any trouble,
Never heard of. They might source their media from wherever they get the stuff cheapest (most brands do so), so I would not bet that the box you have now is the same stuff you bought a couple of weeks ago.

also the process hasn’t changed at all: Using Nero I go on Data Dvd, add the files, select burning speed (4x) and click burn.
Please tell us the MID (use the “Disc Info” tab in Nero CD/DVD Speed) and also tell us, what drive you have.

It actually says successfuly burned when done.
Then at least Nero has not encountered errors (which must not necessarily mean the disc is readable).

Strangest thing is that just burning one file on the dvd and it will work on the dvd player… More then one and it sats bad disc!!!

How do you add the additional videos onto the disc? Multisession or just all videos onto the disc at once?

Ok so as far as i know the videos are normal avi. There are prob different types of avi’s but I’m not sure how to tell the differance exactly.

Tried to check on the Disc Info tab on nero but i didn’t find anything called MID sry :o but the drive is ATPI DVD DH16A6S ATA.

For the adding additional videos I don’t use multisession (never have) just all at once.

Sorry if i sound like an idiot here but never had any probs before…

Hi,[QUOTE=trapt;2502021]Ok so as far as i know the videos are normal avi. There are prob different types of avi’s but I’m not sure how to tell the differance exactly.[/quote]This might be the problem. AVI is some kind of container format, the video material inside might be encoded differently using various codecs. Your player might not support these.

Good. Then this problem source can be ruled out.

Hello again.

The reason I wasn’t really worried about the avi files is cause I put them on a pen-drive and burned them on another Pc (using Nero 7 as well) and they worked fine on my dvd player. Burned them myself using the same process as before.
