I am a n00b at this stuff, so please bear with my ignorance.
Recently, I have had some burns that were somewhat problematic. Various errors, and what not. Last night, for example, we were watching a copy of The Departed, (terrific flick, by the way). All went well until, with about 15 minutes or so left in the movie, the DVD just froze up and no matter what we tried, we couldn’t get past that scene. Now, this movie, when I burned it, didn’t give any errors. But it performed as described.
A few others, though, gave me problems while trying to burn them, making me wonder what the results will be when trying to view them.
So I figured I would use Nero CD-DVD Speed 184.108.40.206 to test the burns. So far I tested a copy of The US vs. John Lennon.
Two questions: first, what does this log file from the Disc Quality test indicate to those of you who understand these things:
Drive: _NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A
Disc: DVD-R (TYG03)
Selected speed: 8 X
PO failures: n/a
Elapsed time: 9:53
Number of samples: 16937
Average scanning interval: 8.00 ECC
Glitches removed: 5
My other question is about the software itself. When I try and fun a few other tests that the program offers, the Start button remains greyed out, and I am unable to run the test. Any insight into this?
