Please help...burning problem

I have just about wasted 5 DVDs (I use Sony DVD+R media). When burning from my hard drive to disc, it burns fine but I have noticed that when I’m burning a DVD, my writer blinks a green light and then an orange light, which never happened before. It has always been green all thru the burn. Now after the DVD has finished, I test it on my Sony DVD player and the DVD does not even open. Never has this happened before up until yesterday. Didn’t change anything. I’m using 1Click DVD Copy. If you must know this is happening with Dreamgirls & Catch & Release. I’m stumped…I have even tried other burning software and I’m getting the same results, (more coasters). Any ideas…

Are you using [B]-[/B]Rs ?
If so …

[I][B]Right Click on the 1Click Interface > Settings Menu [/B][/I]

.... Let's check something ..... 

Go to > Start > My Computer 
> Right Click on DVD drive > Properties > Auto-Play tab 

What do you have selected for the "Action to Preform" for [B]'DVD Movie[/B]" ?
This should be set as "[B]Take no action[/B]"
OR 
Set only for your DVD Player ( WinDVD/PowerDVD ) 
- [B]be sure to close your 'Player' before opening 1Click [/B]

While here in the DVD Drive  'Properties" 
Do you have a "DLA" tab ?
= [B]Disable[/B] DLA

:)

I’m using +R media…does that change anything? What should the correct settings be before I burn?

Sorry … You had said that

Please post your F8 Log
…That will answer my questions all at once
and then I can be more specific

Check through the other things I suggested to look at

:wink:

Ok…here is the log that I just did. It seems like other burn programs that I have work. I would rather use 1 click DVD because it seems like the quality of the burn is better. I can’t figure out why it stopped working all of a sudden. Well, here is my recent log. Hope this helps in bringing this problem to a close…

You have the ‘wrong’ Patin-Couffin Installed
Download/Install the VSOInspector ( it’s free ) > Reboot
The VSOInspector should (re)install the proper version of the Patin-Couffin(37)

Post a Updated Log Session - So I can check the ‘installation’

What other “Burning Software” - Do you have Installed ?


Try using your [E] [SONY DVD RW DRU-820A 1.0c](http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters/sony-dru-820a/1501#comments) - As your Destination 
It has the latest Firmware Update 

Your [BTC/Emprex DVDRW IDE1108 B430](http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters/btc-drw-1108im/252) - Really should be Replaced

How are you getting the DVD Source Folder - to your Hard Drive ?
What Decrypter are you using ?
DVDFab ? AnyDVD ?
I don’t read one listed …

When Selecting a HDD Source Folder , 
It's best to Direct - to the VIDEO_TS Folder

shannon90210,
I just installed VSOInspector and it installed version 36. The same file that I have on my computer. The other burning software I have is Magic DVD Copier which works fine. I have no problems with it. I also use Magic DVD ripper to rip to hard drive. Both software works fine. But like I said, I would rather use 1 click DVD because it seems like the quality of the burn is better. Both my drives have the most current firmware installed.

I just uninstalled 1 Click and then re-installed it. Still got the 1.36 Pcouffin version.

This is Your Main Issue
Something

  • either Magic DVD Copier /Magic DVD ripper
  • or an Old Version of CopytoDVD
    Is Blocking the Patin-Couffin version from being Updated from 36 to 37

If you have CopytoDVD Installed ( ? ) > Remove it for now

First Try …

Go to >>
> Start > Right Click on My Computer
>> Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager
Look toward the bottom of the ‘Device’ Listing
Look for VSO Devices
Click the " + " to Open “VSO Devices”
You should now see = “pcouffin device for 32 bit systems”
Right Click on "“pcouffin device for 32 bit systems”
Select= UNinstall
> Reboot your Computer
> Reinstall 1ClickDVDCopy again , over itself > Reboot

> Re Check your 1Click Log for Version 37
( hopefully )

:slight_smile:

If the Above doesn’t work
You’ll have to Remove the Program - that is ‘Locking’ the PCversion36

  • in order to allow the Update to PCv37

:wink:


OK…shannon90210, I have uninstalled Magic DVD copier & 1 Click DVD. Cleaned my system of any leftovers from both programs. Re-installed 1 Click DVD Copy ONLY and rebooted. It still installs 1.36 Pcouffin version. I have not yet tried to burn a DVD because I don’t want to waste a disc. Here is a log. Any ideas…

Did you try the Device Manager Removal ?
Somehow PCv36 is still Locked in there

Do you have CopytoDVD installed ?

Search your Computer for:{ PCSetup }
Tell me what you find

I do not have that in my device manager list. I do not have CopytoDVD installed.
I searched for PCSetup and it is here: C:\My Documents\PcSetup

hmm…funny how it shows ‘Version 1.37.0.94’, but when I show the properties of the file: Pcouffin.vxd it says Version 1.36.0. Remember I’m using Win98 SE my device manager looks a little different from the one you show.

Here is my device manager…


Install CCleaner ( it’s free )
>> Run CCleaner > Issues > Fix All

then …

Go here ;
http://www.lgsoftwareinnovations.com/download.asp
Download/ Install CopytoDVD SE 4.0.2 ( free/bonus )
> Reboot ( Turn Computer Off > Then Restart )

If Installing CopytoDVD - doesn’t seem to Help …
then … Contact LGSI Support
Be sure to include a link to this thread

This may well be a ME issue … and my ME experience is limited

Let me know if this helps

:slight_smile:

Just curious…I also have AnyDVD installed but its not running in the background. Could that be blocking it?

No , I’d doubt it
AnyDVD uses a completely different Drive access

If AnyDVD has been exited - I’d extremely doubt it

But you could try removing AnyDVD - just to see
And … a AnyDVD Re Install Isn’t going to hurt - either
( be sure your key is safe )

:slight_smile:

Here’s an idea…should I uninstall any kind of copy & ripper program that I have, clean out my system of any leftovers, then try to install 1 click DVD & see what happens? What’s your take on that?

Just make sure you do not have Roxio Drag to disc or Nero INCD installed.:iagree:

Sounds good … Couldn’t hurt …
