Failier to Burn in Platinum 6.0.1.o

HI
I hope someone can help to sort out this query.:bow:
I have cheched SEARCH but not come up with anything!!!
Basically I can’t Burn. I was getting extensive drop outs - picture break up, now I am un able to burn at all.
I have enclosed a number of screen shots to assisError 123 and 122 occure but I can find no refference in the error list
My OS is vista home Premium and I’m using DVDFab Platinum 6.0.1.0
I have tried various disks DVD -R and DVD - Rw primarily Verbatim and from different tubs and Sony
I’m burning at x4 but get rejection +++
Any advice please

Can you include a log from a failed burn? Location - if you’re using the included VSO engine - is C:\Documents And Settings\Your Name\My Documents\Applications\DVDFab, and a subfolder in the DVDFab main is Log…we don’t need to see the type of entry that you’ll see when you first enter the log…that info is generated every time you start Fab…further down the log file will be the actual burn sessions - pick the most recent that failed, and copy and paste it into your next post.

The info there will help us alot.

Hope this is the required data
Sorry if it is over kill
this is the log with todays date
Thanks for the interest

I’ve eliminated much of what you submitted to make it easier for you to follow what I’ll be saying.

The first two failed burns (on the -R RW media) are Ritek discs - don’t know who they made these discs for, but not Verbatim or Sony. Ritek aren’t the worst disks on the market, nor are they the best.

The problem is, video work is unlike anything you’ve done before. When you are using single layer discs, the implication is (even if not always true) that the source material was somewhat larger than the files you’re left with, and because the final compressed size is so close to the available S/L disc size, imperfections on the blank media are unacceptable, as any unusable sectors on the blank will quickly render the file you’re trying to write as too large to fit on the media.

As a result, we always specify Taiyo Yuden for S/L discs, and Verbatim for D/L discs, where the quality of workmanship is consistent disc after disc after disc (and also where there are VERY seldom unusable sectors).

I notice your third submitted fail was a Taiyo Yuden write…one that would have worked had you upped the write speed (yup…it is possible to write too slowly…) - the slowest any write should be is half the max. rated speed for any disc (within the limitations of your hardware - if the rated speed for a disk is 2X, you won’t be able to set half of that…).

I also noticed that you had a successful write with Verbatim, even though the write speed was too slow…

As a suggestion, you’ll be better off using Imgburn for all your writes…less problematic than the VSO engine included with Fab…and as Imgburn doesn’t use system drivers, if a burn fails, your O/S won’t lock out burns for you because of the failure.

Imgburn is a freebie, available on the web, and Fab has the hooks to allow that program to be used as the default writer (in Common Settings). There is a guide for setting up Imgburn to work with Fab in Stormjumper’s signature - might be an idea to use that guide to set it up for your system. He posts very frequently in this forum, so locating his name shouldn’t be a problem.

Let us know if you have any further problems.
