Recently I am having a LOT of problems with my burns not being able to be backed up with Decrypter OR Fab Plat, or RipIt for that matter because of these damn pauses/freezes within the first minute on the disc.
It doesn’t ALWAYS happen, but often enough to make me want to toss the tower out the window. Sometimes I get a clean burn the first try, sometimes the 2nd, and sometimes NEVER…
Here’s what I’m doing:
1.) I take an .avi file and import it into Magix Movie Edit Pro 11 (yeah, I know, but it’s better than Flick in my opinion when it works and I can customize my menus, etc. with my own jpegs which I don;t think Flick does)… then
2.) I burn it to disc (more times than not I have used Memorex16x DVD+R’s with little problem, I have some Linkyo Taiyo Yuden Silver Thermal Laquer 16x DVD-R on the way)… which recently more times than not has an annoying ‘pause’ or freeze -> playback (sometimes with a few second skip) that freaks out Decrypter and Fab, etc so I can’t make a HD backup of the DVD/multiply copies
I used to NEVER have this problem, but it’s happening more and more lately.
any ideas? what info do you need I didn’t give?
and extra questions: I THOUGHT I ordered DVD+R’s, but looking at my invoice they are shipping DVD-R’s… have never used -'s, drawbacks? and I see A LOT of posts mentioning 8x burns…why? quality/performance? should I NOT be burning at 16x?
any help to this (kinda) noob would be appreciated
