Ok, I am at a loss here; any1 who can help explain what the problem is would be greatly appreciated.
What I have is 3 discs in question.
all have on them:
DVDISO extracted through RipIt4Me > ISO > ImgBurn 2.4X Verbatim DVD+R DL burned on a Pioneer 112L
disc 1 &2 are from a 3 pack box. Disc 3 is from a spindle.
disc 1-would play fine everywhere except in 1 standalone player (which started all of this). I’d say 3 out of 10 attampts it would read in the stand alone.
disc 2- would play 5 out of 10 times.
disc 3- would play 6 out of 10 times.
all other previously burned DVD+R DL Verbatims play fine on this stand alone player.
Initiall I did CD-DVD speed scans on disc 1 at 8x using a lite-On which showed spikes on all 3 discs.
after being advised that 8x was not good, I re-did all 3 discs at 4x, once I got past the spike point i stopped the scan. But the differences in the discs in the stand alone player prompted me to do full scans of disc 1 (the worst)
here are the scans at 4x (which matched the 8x minus the spike) and at 12X
What is the problem, the media, the burned, the standalone? Why only the 3 DLs which were all burned with the Pioneer 112L. I tested the Single layers i burned with this unit it plays fine. The data DL i burned with this (scan above) is fine. The only 2 constants are Pioneer 112L; same movie; 2.4X.
