I read through these posts and many more from not only this site and from other forum sites as well. Common denominator is....nothing.. literally. You all have different systems, with different set ups ie. motherboard, amount or RAM type of RAM..DDR vs SDR, CPU types, hard drives, (Maxtor, IBM, Western Digital), different DVD drives and different DVD burners. You even have different Burner software from one to another. Also, perhaps Different ASPI layers in your operating system, and different downloaded plug-ins. And you say it doesn't work.
You know I can burn my DVD's in Nero 3 different ways and set up different settings in the "preferences" section? AND in those 3 different DVD settings I can also make other choices that affect the outcome of the burn. That's one software.
I use DVD Decrypter. You ever take a look at all the setting available in the "settings" menu? Hundreds of choices. and in with combinations of one to another it ends up in Hundreds of Thousands of different combinations. Think about it. just choose WNASPI32.dll over the other 4 choice and you have a whole new setting. go into one of the other menu settings and again, you have a whole new set of rules. goes on and on.
Some people use a blank AUDIO_TS and others don't ... personally I use it on the burn, as it takes up little space and it just might make a difference.. but might not :bigsmile:
Oh yes.... the freezes and such... Ever use your computer to do some other stuff as it burns? Do you know the CPU and memory are busy swaping things back and forth from Hard drive (some read at 66 and others like mine read at ATA 133 *133Megabytes/sec ), into the DVD burner hardware you have? Ever try to concentrate on a problem when there are 2 people each asking you differnt questions at the same time? Give your computer some "quality" time.. leave it alone for awhile when it is decrypting, re-encoding or as in the case of DVD2ONE... transcoding and for heavens sake especially while burning.
Another interesting note I pass along that I do and never have any problems with burned DVDs .... ever.. There's a idea here.. if someone is successful, do what they do (emulate) and your success is less likely to come in by chance.... When I burn I leave the room. I know it sounds odd, but I am the winemaker at a large winery. We use sterile filters to polish the wine of yeasts and other things and filter down to .45 micron. Some of the sterile filters are down to .60 micron.. NOW.. what does this have to do with burning? DVDs are different than CDs. What you can get by with on a CD burn you may not get by with on a DVD. Reasons a DVD can hold so much more information than a CD is the structure of the media and the way it burns. The tracks, the area used to burn information, on a DVD are some .79 micron in width. Think about me filtering out yeast at .45 and then think about a track that is only .79 micron wide. This is why DVDs can get so much info and also WHY the burner is so much more expensive than a CD burner. It has to hold a MUCH greater tolerence. What happens if the computer gets bumped during a burn? Can the tracks mis-align? Remember....they are only 79 millionth of an inch away from each other. So.. I start the burn and very quietly leave the room for the duration, or simply go to bed and look at it in the morning when I get up. Done by then....long done.
Maybe I'm a funny old man, doing funny old ways, but I've never burned a coaster with DVD Decrypter and DVD2ONE and Nero yet.. QUICK!!! find me some wood to knock on!!! LOL
