Pixelated Burned dvd dl?

vbimport

#1

I’m new to these DL dvds. I just tired to backup my first dl dvd.
Dvdfab 5.0.9.0 burned the dvd successfully,( the media was memorex brand by the way, also a memorex 16x dl drive) and when I tried to play the dvd in my living room. The whole dvd is is all pixelated. The dvd wasn’t even recognized in my bedroom dvd/tivo unit. What could be causing this?

VSO Burning Engine used.

I’m not sure what other information might be need to diagnose


#2

The log from this burn would be helpful. May have burned too fast, but more probably it’s the blank media. Use windows search to find the file [B]dvdfab_burn_vso.log[/B] and put this burn session in a post.

Dvd write speed was left at : recommended

Here is the log :

Look a little further down the list in the logfile, none of the log entries were from a successful DL burn, but I can tell you this: never use “recommended” burn speed, it is almost always too fast. Rule of thumb: half the rated burn speed of the blank media, except in the case of 2.4X rated DLs. The log from a completed burn will be about twice as many lines as those you found.

Welcome to CDFreaks

Most of us use this rule of thumb

Thanks for the responses and for the welcome.

Well the memorex discs are rated at 8x. I rolled the record speed back to 4x.

Twice now dvdfab locks up at around half way through the burn at DVD9 quality… :a

Should I trying using another burning engine besides VSO?

Nero dvd speed says that memorex media are manfactured by ritek which I read on here are junk? Also says the write speed is 4x and 6x. I’m wondering if this is true with the memorex drive as well being junk…

Also on a side note dvdfab defaults to DVD5… The dvd I’m trying to backup is the movie “21”.

DVD5 : Quality 55% 7715MB > 4300 MB

I originally tried to burn this to a single layer sony disc 4.7gb, well after the image is ripped and ready to burn, dvdfab won’t even begin burning, log says disc is too small! So I leave the DVD5 setting, insert the memorex dl disc and I get a message saying this is a dl disc, only a single layer disc is required! I’ve already turned 3 of these dl discs into scrap… What’s going on there!?

Yes try imgburn it’s one of the choses in DVDFab. And it’s FREE

Just click the pull down and change to 9, Most people only use the 5 for single Movie only.

Update to the new DVDfab or rollback to the 5.0.8.8 version and try that.

You could try this option. Rip to your hard drive with DvdFab, using Dvd9 as default, (this can be changed in settings), then follow this.

You have poor quality media, but it may be worth trying ImgBurn, as others have suggested. I use it for ALL DL burns. It will give you more feedback about what is going on during the burn process. The burn is locking up at the midpoint because the drive can’t find the second layer of the disc. The link beef barley provided has clear screen captures that show how to use ImgBurn step-by-step (I usually skip the Verify).

You are welcome. I would recommend Verbatim to the OP, although I have had some good luck with Philips.

Verbatim for D/L and Taiyo Yuden are the only brands that I use. :iagree:
