I apologize if sometimes I mistranslate situations. Thing is I myself am confused with all this, and I have a difficulty concentrating all the info with all the details to it. So I’ll try to be more specific and detailed in the future. However I think you may find lot of the info you are looking for on some of my earlier posts. Now about the answers to your questions.
-Let’s take things from the start. I insert a DVD-R that contains 6 .avi files into my LG drive. The drive loads up with a blank CD, which is strange cause it’s almost the exact opposite form what I put on the tray (a full burned DVD-R). Anyways, I open Alcohol 120% and I try to open the DVD-R manually. But it cannot do so. It simply cannot read the contents. Despite that though I initiate to copy the contents to the virtual drive as if there was no problem in reading the DVD-R. And get this, the copy is successful. I am able to play the contents of the DVD-R through the virtual drive of Alcohol 120%. However as I said before, this process even though it bypasses the problem, it does not solve it. Plus it is time consuming for all the DVD-Rs are backuped files. Concluding, this program even though it does give a half solution, does not serve my goals (solving this problem once and for all by reading directly from both my drives), and probably is more useful to gamers than for me.
-I am not well aware of the abbreviation MIDs (?), but I assume you mean media files so here’s the answer. I mostly have .avi files on my DVD-Rs, however I do have some disks with multiple different files (.avi, .mpg, .mp3, .jpg, e.t.c.) burned to them that have all the exact same problem as the ones with only the .avi files.
-I haven’t tried using an other DVD-Rs ot DVD+RWs that have been burned on a different PC yet, but it’s on my to do list. As soon as I get the results I’ll report them.
-As for the Nero CD-DVD Speed screenshot I encountered a most interesting problem (if I could consider it interesting despite the fact that it’s another problem added to my big list of them). I open the program but as I get to the first window it has the option of “Start” grayed out, probably because my LG drive recognizes it as a blank CD. So what I did was insert the same DVD-R into my SONY drive. The option “Start” was available so I clicked on it; however the process stopped with an error code 053002 (I tried several times). I didnâ€™t stop there though. I ejected and inserted the DVD-R again in my SONY drive. Did the same thing but the results were different. I still couldnâ€™t complete the process, but I noticed that there was another error code that was encountered (030201). And get thisâ€¦the fist attempt had my DVD-R length to 0.83GB, but my second had it to 6.91GB!?!?! Don’t know if that helps! I didn’t publish the screenshots cause I’m kinda new in the forum area. I understand I have to upload them to a certain website in an account I open on it? I’m probably going to need some help on this one. However I believe that the information provided is all you need to know. If you insist in seeing the screenshots just tell me the way and I will do so.
-I have already tried my drive in another PC and it seems as if it worked perfectly on it. Go figure!!!
Anyways, I hope this is good info for you. If you need anymore details don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for helping!
