http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=OY1UH5ZRXXFL3KC4D3HVAFY?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&ks=960&st=DVD&sc=Global&cp=1&sp=&qp=crootcategoryid%23%23-1%23%23-1~~q445644~~ccat01000%23%23b%23%23al~~nccat01161%23%234%23%232b&list=n&usc=All+Categories&nrp=15&iht=n

first of there could be several reasons for a burn to go badly , it doesnt have to be the discs fault… , if youll post the burnning log i might figure it out , anyway no one can really tell you which one of the 2 brands are better from just the images , every disc have its mediacode and without it its not possible to tell , use dvd identifier on each and take some screenshots
http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/ , the best are taiyo yuden & verbatim , but of course its not only the discs its the drive too some dislike certain taiyo yuden/verbatim and some burners burn -r better then +r and vice versa , whats your burner? , you can get taiyo yuden discs from www.rima.com or www.supermediastore.com ,

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Since this is the Blank Media forum, I’ll recommend some media for you: Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden.

The Verbatims you can buy at Best Buy, but for the Taiyo Yuden discs, you’ll have to shop online (I would recommend Rima, as mentioned above), although they’re sometimes available at regular stores under certain brands, you need to know what you’re looking for (Made in Japan on the packaging is usually a good indicator).

Also as mentioned above, what burner do you have?

:slight_smile:

Most users here will go for Verbatim (MCC dyes) or Taiyo Yuden (Verbatim, Plextor, Sony), or TY own brand from online stores. All of these will suffice for your purposes. Personally I like TY 8x DVD+R (YUDEN000T02 Dye), but these are increasingly hard to find in stores (Sears has them under Sony brand, packs say Made in Japan, but these are getting rarer), so you may have to order online. Im in the UK so dont know much about online in the USA, but ive heard Rima are good, and Supermediastore.

Why the 2x burn? These are 16x discs and 2x is most unlikely to give good results.

I can only assume that the HP 740 is an external drive is it as those two pics of yours only show 1 HDD in DMA mode 5.

I gather you should turn off packet writing as this can cause problems.


#7

I have it set to 16x but when it finishes converting it burns automatically and it wil burn it in 2x I don’t know why and how can I turn off packet writing


#8

you can take screenshots within windows you know? you dont need to bother with the digicam , burnning 16x disc at 2x is far from idle , you defintly need to fixup that DMA , goto start–>run and put devmgmt.msc and hit enter ,expand “ide ata/atapi controllers” right click each ide channel and click “uninstall” and confirm if it asks , when done restart and if the dma is still off then i’d say it must be off in the bios youll need to get into it and set it to auto…

as for the “Exception encountered” errors i see 2 options
a) your user account doesnt have admin rights and you didnt run convertxtodvd with an admin account
b) some sort of bug in convertxtodvd itself , are you using the latest version?


#9

Go into Settings & the Burning options. Check the “Prefer SAO burning…”.

What speed do you have set for burning , is this where you set 16x?

Is this an internal or external burner 'cos I’m a little confused about that as the pics only show an HDD connected internally.


#10

@TimC , you must have missed this line in the log

#11

No I didn’t. The confusion is caused by what I said about the pics only showing 1 device connected to the Primary & Secondary IDE channels.


#12

yep thats true but could just be some driver issue , according to the info in this page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=c00001838&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN#N1982
theres no doubt its an internal IDE burner


#13

The 740 actually comes in internal & external versions as you’ll see further done that page.

I suspect it is internal but if so then either the IDE controller drivers are screwed up or erroneous pics have been posted.


#14

well if youll look deeper in the page , youll see each drive have its “ID string:” , the internal 740 identifies as 740b… which is the case here^ while the external as 740v


#15

Enough now.

We need some feedback from the mexican rather than continuing this friendly banter.

ok I set it to prefer Sao burning for DVD-r and I’m going to test it so see what happens thanks for all the help and I’ll report back with what happened and also easter Bunny you said I’ll have to go

when done restart and if the dma is still off then i’d say it must be off in the bios youll need to get into it and set it to auto…

you can take screenshots within windows you know

How can I do that

well there are 2 ways

  1. old school - just use the printscreen (prtscn) button under the keyboard lights , this will capture the entire screen , if you want to capture only the active (current window) then you should use alt+printscreen , after you pressed the button/s just run paint and press ctrl+v , then ctrl+s to save , set “save as type” to PNG

  2. with screen capturing software , much easier , i recommend gadwin printscreen http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/

oops didnt notice you asked on the bios-dma too , well basicly to enter the bios you need to restart and press a certain key constantly til youll get in , in most cases its the “delete” key , where exactly you can find the dma configuration i really cant say without knowing whats your motherboard so ill have a peek at its pdf manual , anyway cross that bridge when youll get to it first try removing the ide channels & restarting
