Please bear with me…I’m totally new to DVD burning, having just purchased a BenQ DW1620 (bulk version). I did patch the firmware up to B7T9.
My problem is that I don’t seem to be able to successfully burn an entire DVD (movie, menus, everything) split onto two DVD+R discs. I’ve tried this with different media (Memorex and Sony DVD+R’s), and the results are completely inconsistent, both in my Sony DVPNS-400 DVD player, and the BenQ drive itself using PowerDVD. Either the DVD player plays the first DVD+R and not the second, or it doesn’t play the first DVD+R until I hit play, or neither DVD+R plays in my BenQ drive, or…etc etc…there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to which of the two DVD+R’s plays or doesn’t play, or what errors I get, when I try to play them.
I’m using DVDxCopy Platinum, no compression, default values. I also tried DVD Cloner II, and got the same inconsistent results. I’ve gone through about 15 DVD+R’s by now. Can anyone tell me whether there’s something obvious I should be doing? I’m sure I must be doing something wrong.
