I am not sure if I am posting this in the right forum but I am also not sure if it’s a burner issue or a software issue.
I have just started backing up discs using DL media and have run into some major issues. 2 out of maybe 10 -12 discs have worked. I use an AOPEN1648 drive to rip to my hard drive and an NEC 3500A (2.1a fw) to burn. I just upgraded to 2.1b fw but have not attempted to burn anything until I get a response. I am using Sony DVD+R DL media.
Basically my burn goes thru successfully but when I play it in different home players it will lock up during playback. I am using a Pioneer DV-525 for the main player but trying it in at least 2 other players have resulted in the same problem. For example I am backing up an episode disc and it will lock up on episode 3, chapter 3 always. Then a movie I try and back up will lock up at other points. I have used various programs (shrink, decrypter, oneclickdvdpro w/dvd4:3, dvdfab decrypter) and it all results in the same issue. I have just downloaded Ripit4me and IMGburn but not sure if that will matter. Again, I don’t want to risk yet another coaster until I hear something back.
Should I upgrade my firmware to something else? Am i not using the right software? I am pretty frustrated as DL media isn’t cheap. Thanks in advance for any help and if this is not in the proper area, I apologize.
