Hi there. Sorry to hijack the thread,
I've just spent a week making coffee coasters out of Verbatim DVD-R's
(Batch - ZD9030-DVR-J474F)
I got a 50 disc slab and have only had 1 in 10 actually complete burning. The cheepie crap Tevion etc work no problems.
I need some settings advice to save some plastic.
I'm running XP Pro SP2 with Slysoft AnyDVD 220.127.116.11 running in the background and use CloneDVD2 18.104.22.168 to back-up normal single layer DVD movies.
I can back-up movies all day without problem. But as soon as I use the new Verbatim DVD-R's......... it $hits itself half way through the final burn process with the 'bad media' error.
Must also add the DVD's in question have "16x certified" writen on them, what does this mean ?
Will they be compatable with my burner, which is a LiteOn LH-18A1P - DVDÂ±RW (Â±R DL) / DVD-RAM drive.
Is there a non-default speed I should be using, and how do I change this using cloneDVD2 ?
I also get a similar error using Nero7.
One more thing...... (sorry, I'm trying to give as much info as relevant)
in AnyDVD the drive info states >
Summary for drive F: (AnyDVD 22.214.171.124)
Drive (Hardware) Region: 0 (not set!)
However the properties of the Lite-on burner indicate region 4, with 4 possible changes. Should I change it to region 4, even though it states it is on 4 (Australia ?)
I thought AnyDVD removes the region crap.....Mmmm confused
The DVD I'm trying to back-up is Matrix (original) locked (according to AnyDVD) to region 4
AnyDVD pops up an error stating that it's unable to crack the CSS key etc etc. I have enabled the CSS region key archive. But it still doesn't like it at all.
It says to set the drive region code to that of the disc. Why would you do that if you can only do it 4 times ???
I don't think this relates to the burn Verbatim problem above, as that happens with any movie I try to back-up. But it is osmething than perplexes me.
Thanx 4 ur patience guru dudes
I can also do the above DVD speed test if you need to, and post logs etc if required.
