Fastforward/reverse problems w/ copied dvd

vbimport

#1

the movie seems to burn fine. when i insert it into my home dvd player ( Magnavox MWD 200G) it starts like the orginal dvd its when i try and rewind or fast forward that it freezes up (screen is completely black) i can press play to stop rewinding and it goes back to the begining of the movie…when fast forwardin it skippes several scenes. i am using memorex dvd-r 16x 4.7gb 120min blank dvd’s…i tried slowing burning speed from 16x to 8x and still the same problem excists. my dvd burner (PBDS-DVD±RW DH-16W1S ATA Decive) came with the DELL Inspiron 530 i just bought. i have burnt several movies and all of them have this same problem…the only problem!!!

Is there any suggestions to what may be causing this problem?

Thanks-Harley

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Most of times this problem is due to a bad burned disc, and most of times this is due to a low quality disc.

Memorex are known to be low quality discs. I suggest to use better quality media, like Verbatim. This should solve :slight_smile:

thanks for the help… i ment to update the message when i brought it over from the dvd next copy fourm but i forgot. i went out and bought a pack of verbatiums dvd’s and again same prob. slowing burner speed down doesnt work either. PUZZLED!!!

That’s strange: Verbatim are among the best media available at the moment.

Can you update the burner firmware? If you bought Verbatim 16x discs, try to burn them at 12x or 8x: this should give the best results :slight_smile:

Thanks geno888, well said. Also you might try +R’s or +RW’s and booktype to DVD-ROM as well.


#6

i tried -R/+r & RW still didnt solve prob. i looked at a cpl of sites and couldnt find my burner i dont really know where to look. kinda new to this and as far as booktype you spoke of thats the first i have ever heard of that. could you explain more on how to do that.

thanks-

I suggest Imgburn (it is free)if you don’t mind using another application that is free rather than using DNC’s burn engine (not that it is bad). I couldn’t find your burner either on any site to see if a firmware upgrade is there. I also answered you on the other forum as well.

Maybe nero Infotool can give better details about the exact drive model :slight_smile:


#9

in Imgburn how can you get the file compressed so that it will fit on a singel-layer disc. i read the dvd and save it to my HD but when i try to burn it the disc doesnt have enough space


#10

Unless I missed it there is no way to compress using Imgburn.

Ditto :iagree:

I switched to CloneDVD2 and i dont ahve any problems so it was the DVD Next Copy software (bummer)…You know of any free decryption programs that will work with CloneDVD2. i had Machinist2 and that dont seen to work so i am using a trial version of AnyDVD.


#13

Nothing free for clonedvd2 sorry.


#14

I just bought my inspiron 530 …I guess im just not a computer person…can you tell me what I need to do to burn cd’s?


#15

Burn CD’s or DVD’s?


#16

Just an update as I took a poll on the top five issues and this one was repetitive, so this is one of the many things I am reporting as a main issue overall on issues.


#17

I have a simular problem…i can fast forward/reverse but only at 2x if i try to go faster it freezes up and if i hit play it starts at the begining. im using sony and verbatim dvds and same thing on both. i have latest ver of neXtCOPY 2.9.9.1 and my drive (MATSHITA BD-CMB UJ-120) has the latest firmware availible. PS i already know it aint the best drive around but it came with the pc and it hasnt failed me yet. any ideas?


#18

There seems to be some issues on this and it is a hit and miss type of thing. They are working very hard on DVD neXt COPY V3 and I hope this will address the masses on this issue.


#19

I just purchased DVD next copy ultimate several days ago and have copied 3 different movies, all of them have the same fast forward and rewind problems.

Today I installed the trial version of CloneDVD2 and copied 1 movie and it plays and rewinds/fast forwards fine.

I have opened a ticket through DVD next copy. I hope they can resolve the problem for me because I do like the software.

Has anyone else had this problem resolved?

Well at least you did the first step on getting your issue fixed. Submitting a support ticket about that issue is a good start.
