I just blew TWO HOURS.
I was transferring some STARGATE: ATLANTIS episodes to DVD, and after making one copy of episodes 7 and 8, I made a second copy. (Episode 7 was from a VHS tape, ep. 8 from a TiVo recording…don’t ask.)
When I was all done with the second copy of the disc, I waited for the menu to come up so I could change the text on the second recording, as I had on the first one. (I was intending to type in “SG:A 108”.)
The menu won’t come up.
I can hit “play” and it’ll start running episode 7, and at the end of 7 it automatically goes into 8, BUT THERE’S NO MENU NOW!!!
It was there before when I input the “label” for the first recording, but now I go to do it for the second hour’s worth, and NOTHING comes up but the Lite On background.
No funny “thumbnails with yellow borders”, nothing.
I even put the disc into my 5006, wondering if it was the '05 having a problem, but no go.
It’s the disc.
The menu info is gone.
I don’t want to finalize the disc, because if the menu comes up afterward, then the second thumbnail will forever say “Title 2” instead of “SG:A 108”.
Picky? Maybe, but I’d like things to be consistent.
Now, to have a proper second copy, I’m having to re-record two entire hours of programming.
Has anyone seen anything like this happen before?
Could it be that I shouldn’t have changed the menu until both episodes were on the disc, and did I somehow overwrite part of the altered menu for 107 when I recorded 108? (And thus destroy the entire menu?)
