Hi to all,
I erroneously posted in an old thread, so starting a new one thanks Jeff53404.
I have a DVD +/- writer LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-160P65, DRIVER VERSION 5.1.2535.0 and I’m using the following software:
V 184.108.40.206 (I just downloaded v 6.1.0)
I’ve copied and burned most of my DVDs with success (DVD+/-) on the cheaper FRY’s GQ brand, Approximately 3 out of 50 does not read on my 2001 stand alone DVD player, the rest of the DVDs work really well.
What was really weird was my copy of the Matrix, it was playing fine on my stand alone the first time, I played it…then when trying to finish the film 2 days later my stand alone wouldn’t even recognize the disc!
So here goes Question # 1) Is that from bad archival life or what? Has this happened to anyone else?
So what I burned it to disc again, using the CLONEDVD2 file on my hard drive HOWEVER I first used Verbatim DVD-R 16x recorded at 8x, it still didn’t read…then I used an HP DVD+R 16x recorded at 8x and still nothing.
Which leads to Question # 2) Is this a video failure from my clonedvd2 file or something that has to do with AnyDVD? I have not experienced any copying problems with other titles (about 10 titles) that I’ve copied/burned since so I don’t understand what the heck is going on?
- What is better media, TY or Verbatim? What is the difference? I’m just going by recommendations from others but I don’t know why the discs are so different.
I’m sorry if I have left out any other necessary info. And THANKS in advance!
