OK…long term DVDFabHD Decrytpor user…looking to buy DVDFab Platinum. I have previously movings on my HDD (eg. Apocalypto) in Video_TS/VOB/IFO movie directories. I’m trying to create some backup DVDs and went out and bought my first DVD+R DL discs. Previously, I’ve used Nero 6 Recode for DVD-R SL with no problems. With Apocalypto (and others) being more than 4.5GB I want to burn ob DVD+R DL. I looked at FRYS on DVD-R DL but was told +R are fine and obviously cheaper.
My first issue via Recode 2 and also DVDShrink with Nero Burner was the DL break. I forgot to uncheck the remove function so it hung. After correcting I burned using Recode 2, DVDShrink w/Nero and also DVDFab (Trial Version) with VSO and Nero. VSO gave completely unreadable disc. DVDFab+Nero burned but like Recode & Shrink the disc would get past the layer break but hang none the less. Funny thing is while on the PC the layer break would hang too…with that fixed the PC playback runs fine…but my Sony DVD player hangs on these discs (same exact point). So, I was thinking it may be quality of discs but now think it is a compatibility item of +R. I’ve tried buring at slower speeds…4X versus 8X…no difference. So, my last trial before returning +R for DL -R is to try DVDFab with ImgBurn. I downloaded 220.127.116.11 (latest) and ran DVDFab. When it launched ImgBurn after copy process from HDD to Temp HDD folder the onscreen log file went to “Preparing Image…”. It hung there. Any ideas ? I’ve reads somewhere in past ImgBurn needs DVD Decryptor installed…still true or is DVDFab OK without it ? Let me know…want to eliminate all the burning variables on this.
Also, any ideas on my general issue of hangs on discs let me know.
Also…new DVD+/-RW burner…LG GSA-H55L with 1.03 firmware…pretty close to latest.
