[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LH-20A1L. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hey guys sorry if this is not the right place to post this. I having trouble trying to make a back up copies of some dvds. I have tried just about everything from diffrent softwares to diffrent methods. I have tried PowerISO, Nero alcohol 120. I have tried copping the disk over as in a ISO format or nero’s version of a iso and i have tried just copying the files over the the hard drive and burning as a data dvd. I have told nero or using eeprom utility to set the book type to dvd-rom. I have only have 2 disk complet burning one was a game and the other was what i was tring to copy. the game disk works but the other did not. every time it fails to burn just nero just says error but i can not make heads or tails why it failed i dont think its a buffer underrun b/c the buffer is full when it fails. PowerISO gave me a error code of (-109, 987a9b5c) I found one other post with this error but no solution. the media i am using is memorex dvd+r dl. i have tried diffrent burn speeds from 8x to 2.4x.

If i have missed any other information that is need im sorry but i will reply back with what is needed.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I’d recommend giving Verbatim +R DL a try. For DL, any other brand is a bit hit or miss - sometimes they’ll burn, sometimes not.

To add to the great advice above.

Ill try other media and the other software. But I just took the dvd’s to friends house and was able to on the fly copy from dvd to dvd using nero but he has a plextor burner. I only have 1 dvd drive in my system.
