Same Case for me…
I was using the trial versions of DVDFAB GOLD for 30 days and
used DVDFAB Premium for another 20++ days without any
burning problems, errors or hiccups.
Mind you… I used the same Media (TDK and Maxell) had the
settings defaults (did not touch any of the settings except the
WRITE (chosing between different burn engines) . I played with
the Split, customized, datas, Main and Full modes…all worked
without any problems.
Of a set of 10 disks, not 1 wasted. That is a 100%.
The trial version worked so well and I was very impressed with
the programs, so impressed that I exactly tried both GOLD and
Premium version. Also, I told my friend (who are also interested
in purchasing…but hestiated…she wanted me to buy it first).
As the premium trial period was about to expire, I purchased it.
I told myself that I am so proud of what I have done and really
was very positive on the program.
I did not use it immediately after buying it, ( I was out of town).
When I returned, I downloaded the latest paid version of
DVDFAB Premium, gotten the Reg Key and proceed as per
The first disk was :- Harry Porter (the latest titled…can’t
remember). FAILED to burn in FULL mode, I thought,
Hmmmm…Perhaps the settings were wrong and proceeded with
burning, it again, but this time I change the DVD mode from
FULL to Main, it worked. So I thought really did not cared so
much about it.
For your information, Idid not change and configurations or
added any programs…My PC was the same as when I was
using the trial versions.
Above is just one of the examples of the problems I had after
After purchasing DVDFAB Premium, the results was about 40%
Failed. Out of 10 movies (including…DVDs for Barney, the
purple dinosaur, Pokey Mon cartoons, Hi-5…kids program &
some other movies…all are DVD9s). Some failed…even the
cartooms and kids programs!
I contacted the CDFREAK forum although, not every time there
are failure, on my part, I was lazy, but the other, I did not have
time (need to work).
Anyhow, to cut the story short… The program failed
"sometimes" after purchasing and was working excellently in
the trial period. It would a what I call a “marketing strategy”,
whereby the program will worked very well during the trial
period, so that the user will buy the programs, however, after
purchasing, (ie :- after key registeration) the program “tends to
weaken”. I have experience many times before when purchasing
On the positive side, DVDFAB has life time FREE upgrade
(provided…they will continue that policy or existance), and
good, friendly and technical people at CDFREAKS.
I have yet to burn any movies in the passed 2 weeks (too busy).
However, I will still use DVDFAB to burn, I am certain that I will
face some BURN FAILURE issues…at which I shall return.
