My first DL movie backup using RITEK media is ready!!!
The disc was created without setting booktype to DVD-ROM. My DM-TECH DM-511 standalone played the whole movie flawlessly and the layer change was the same as the original’s. Somewhere at the second layer the movie stopped with artifacts on the screen. I was frustrated but i calmed down and ejected the disc. First thing was to check the surface which had a big fingerprint. I was so excited when the burn was finished and i touched the disc’s surface. I cleaned the disc, and afterwards the movie was written perfectly. Although it is strange, why the reader couldn’t do error correction,
i think it is DVD player specific, because my Pioneer standalone played the movie flawlessly even with the fingerprint on the disc. After cleaning the disc to test it again with DM-TECH i touched the disc again in order to test error correction on each DVD player. Last but not least, the DL disc was readable in NEC ND-2500 and also readable in Sony DDU-1621 though f/w revision 3.5 which i have reports no DVD+R DL support!!! It took 30 seconds to recognise the disc but the drive read it. Also readable in an old Matsushita 6x DVD-ROM drive!!! The only failure was when i tested the disc with a very expensive DENON player at my friend’s house and a YAMAKAWA DVD/DivX player. That’s where bitsetting is needed.
SSJ4 Vegetto, thanks for the info on how to change bitsetting but can you please tell me which tab do i choose? NuTech,Ricoh,BenQ …?Thanks again!
As i have one more DL disc to play with and i really want to do bitsetting this time for further testing.
Scorpiosoft, i’ve never tried this one. DVD-Decrypter has no problems with layer change. What about CopytoDVD? Is it considered to be better and why?
Thank you for any info in advance!!!
Oh, i almost forgot…Unfortunately i don’t have a drive capable of reporting PI/PIF errors so i can’t post any Kprobe results. I am thinking of buying a Liteon DVD-ROM but in order to get proper results you need a PI/PIF error reporting capable DVD Writer instead of DVD Reader. I don’t know what to do.
Buy a Liteon reader or stay with my Sony DDU-1621? Any recommendations are welcome! Thanks!!!
