Opening Backup DVD on Computer

vbimport

#1

I am using DVD Fab 4.0.6.2 and cannot read a DVD after I have backed it up on a disc with any computer.

I use Fab for both copying to the hard disc and for recording to the DVD.

The disc will play in the DVD player, but not in the computer DVD player.

I am using Memorex DVD+DL media.

I have not had this trouble before, and it started with the newer version of DVD Fab that was updated the past two version.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

You do know that memorex sometimes does coaster out sometimes right?? But also what speed are you burning at and are you mutitasking as well? What I don’t get is your burn on the same burner but can’t play on it??? Are you planning it on the same computer that you used to back up the dvd ??? Why I ask is your last part is confusing sounds like you burned on the same computer but now you can’t play on it??? Which is highly unlikely to happen…that you can burn on it but can’t play on it>? Also what kinda burner do you have?

Hi nwchicago2,

I realize that you said nothing has changed except your version of Fab, but that may not be true.
Memorex is totally unrealible media…you never know what you’ll get…even within the same spindle. My guess is these are Ritek D01 and are crap…nothing personal.

We’ll need some specifics (eg., burner, firmware, MID, etc.), most of which can be found in your burn log.
Please post a few logs.

Your going to have to help a bit here. What is coaster?

I burn at whatever speed the drive will go at. The fastest I have seen with the Memorex Media is 2.3X

I have been multitasking when burning. I normally try and burn with two FAB windows so I can record two discs at once. I would assume that you belive this may be a problem. If I remember correctly although…this has not been a problem for me previously.

I play the discs on the same computer…and drive. What is transpiring is after I record it, I try and open the disc but it says there is nothing there. I can then take it to my DVD player and it plays just fine. I have one generic burner…and three sony’s.

well turn on verify in common settings - then fab will read back the disc that it has just burned - from the same drive & will tell you immediatly if there are any errors. Don’t multitask when burning, just walk away from the PC for 1/2 hour & don’t leave OUtlook running.

what happens with the “failed” discs if you put them back in the PC and explore the contents with windows explorer ?

[QUOTE=nwchicago2;2006124]Your going to have to help a bit here. What is coaster?
[/QUOTE]

It’s a disc that has effectively been trashed either by a bad burn or otherwise.

In other words it’s only use now is as a drinks coaster. :slight_smile:

If you’re using poor quality media you’re bound to get some of these eventually.

It shows that there is a dvd in the drive, but it does not even read it…ie there is no information there. I know that is not correct because I can put in it my DVD player and play the contents.

Makes no sense to me…

you’vr burned them too quickly - your most recent burns according to your log were at over 8x, oder ones were slower.
e.g.
/23/2008 8:41:26 AM info Write finished in 00:13:06 - Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate 8.33
2/22/2008 7:54:41 PM info Write finished in 00:14:43 - Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate 4.11
2/21/2008 8:54:56 PM info Write finished in 00:22:35 - Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate 2.68
so in 2 days you’ve quadrupled the burn rate !

maybe your dvd player is very tolerant of poor burns and so can still read the discs but your PC can’t.
so burn at 4x or at 2,4 & enable verify, & see if that solves the problem.
could be that when you burned 2 at once, each one went slowly & worked, but now that you are multitasking less, your burner can’t keep up.

cybmole
Sorry dont think burning at 8x is the problem since I and many others burn at that speed, may just be an issue with the reader with in the drive itself.
I would first try uninstalling the drive in device manager and let windows re-install it, and if that does not work then I would go to the next possable fix


#11

StormJumper is right, also could be the media. Do you have other blank media? Also DL media is better to burn under 4x if you ask me.

Does this log show ripping and burning. I have backed up quite a few discs and never seen a burn rate higher than 2.3X

I have seen ripped rated as high as 8x though.

I will check this out and see what I can do to slow it down to 2. However, I don’t think that is the problem but am willing to give anything a chance at this point. Thanks

I burn SL verbs at 8x, reusable RW (panasonic & verbs) at 4x, & DL at the slowest 2.4. That’s with HP DLs which seem pretty reliable at that speed. cant afford DL verbs!. I would not trust high speed (8x) cheap DL blanks !
reinstalling the drives is a good idea.


#14

PS, with the last couple of burns in your log, you are trying to write almost 8GB, which is close to the limit of what a blank DL can hold. So you are writing right up to the end of the disc, which is where cheaper media often fail. Your earlier burns were smaller files.
using customise rather than full disc to trim some unwanted languages & extras may help.


#15

Hi again nwchicago2,

Appreciate you posting the burn logs.
One of the problems with trying to interpret the data is that you have so many variables…
3 burners:
sony DRU-840A (supposedly DL burns supported up to 12X)
sony DRU-830A (up to 8x)
samsung TS-H652L (up to 4X)
(I haven’t looked at your respective firmwares.)

Cybmole mentioned that your burn speeds are all over the place…:iagree:

The media is really the only consistent item and the reliablity (consistency) of Ritek S-04 is poor, so unfortunately, this is a variable too.

Do you have many of these S-04 discs left?

Do any of the discs displayed in your log play ok in your pc?
Do all of them play in your standalone player?
The only error that I saw pop up was with the samsung…an illegal address…only writing a 4.26 GB file to DL media, the LB located at 3.13 GB?

As others said, highly recommend buying Verbatim +R DL
For 2.4X - 4X (MKM 001), be certain to look on the label…it needs to be [B]MIS[/B] = made in singapore
and not [B]MII[/B] = made in India = crap

Verbatim +R DL 8X…to 10X (MKM 003) are only [B]MIS[/B] so these are ok
I’ve had trouble finding the MKM 001 MIS so I’ve sucuumbed to buying the MKM 003 myself.

I’ve had good luck burning these on my samsung 203B at 8X, but required some experimentation on my part, no surprise there…:bigsmile:
Interestingly, I can’t get MKM 003 to burn suuceessfully on my liteon LH-20A1S which had been rock solid with MKM 001 at 4X.

For now, I’d stay with the 840A, especially for the faster DL media (MKM 003) and burn these at 6-8X, 8x is fine, but select it as your burn speed.
Don’t let the software choose.
If you find some of the MKM 001 MII, choose 4X for your burn speed.

Just a bit of a follow up on the advice I received here.

I stopped multi-tasking and continued to use the same media. Media that is being used is the Memorex. I could not dump these as I had another 100 left. I have been using a internal Sony DVD burner with speeds going up to 8x.

This had provided no problems for me and I am able to open the disc right after backing up…

I will have to try and use one of the externals that I had problems with and see if these are good back ups as well.

Thanks for the advice

its the media they they changed it. the older memorex that burned perfectly was in the 10 dvd cake box
media id: Ritek S0-04-01
the nrew media they used in the 25 & 50 cakeboxes are Ritek S0-04-42 (but some burners picked em up as S04-066 which is wrong if u check with VSo’s inquiry util…
i too purchased 100 of these and was sent and extra 50 by memorex. i’ve tried 5 different burners non write the media correctly.
Lite-on LH20A1H LLOD firm
Samsung TTSTCorp SH-203N, SH-203B (both with latest firmware)
Pioneer DVR-215D 1.18 firm
SonyNEC Optiarc AD-7200A-01

still trying 2 find an answer. Memorex techs say their burner burns this media but i dont think they know what they are talking about and i’m not ready 2 spend 99 buxs 2 find out…
any solutions would be appreciated. i tried adding using tools like mediacodespeed edit to modify (add) the S04-042 but no dice…
Is there any writer that burns this stuff?

all i see every where is people having the same problem…
