Problem with DVD creation software

vbimport

#1

Hi, I have been having a problem with trying to create DVD movies. I am using an LG BH16NS40, burner. My computer is Windows 8.1 64bit, i7 64GB Ram. I am working with the software VSO Convert X to DVD, and Xilisoft DVD Creator. After dealing with support from VSO I am felling like this problem could a hardware issue. I am not sure but I figured I could get some suggestion here. I was recommended (by VSO) to try a fix that fixes issues with the DVD in registry (kb 929461, I cant post links yet), but they were very vague and not very clear as to why they suggest that. The problem is, every time I try to write a DVD after conversion the DVD shows up as a blank DVD in Windows. I even tried to output to *.iso and use Nero to write but the same result happens. Thanks

Burning problems in Windows do sometimes crop up due to upper and lower filter issues, so the fix that VSO directed you to is a common solution. I’d try that first.

Does the ISO file you made play on the computer? VLC media player can play ISO files directly, so this player is what I would recommend to test the output from your software. In VLC media player, click on Media at the top left, then Open File to navigate to your ISO file.

Most of us have moved on to burning discs with ImgBurn. Assuming you still have the ISO file intact, you can burn to a disc with ImgBurn by clicking Write Image File to Disc. If it doesn’t work, post the log of the burn or attempted burn by going to Help–>ImgBurn Logs and copy and paste that log into your thread here at MyCE.

Thanks, following the steps in Reg fix I don’t seem to have any of the filters (Upper or Lower) that page say to delete. Could this be a hardware issue? Could changing configuration (SATA channel etc.) fix issues like this. This image has burned fine on other computer. Here is my log from ImgBurn:

The discs you are using are not great…AML-003-01 mid code.
And you are trying to burn them at max speed. Drop that down to 8x.

I’d suggest getting some Verbatim (with AZO on the label), or Taiyo Yuden blank DVD’s. I’m not sure where you are located, but in the US, you can get either type through Amazon, or Rima.com or Supermediastore.com.

I would tell you to look for updated firmware for your burner, but you seem to have the latest installed already (1.03).

Thanks, I said let me play it extra safe and use 4x. It did not successfully verify but surprisingly enough this one recognizes on a computer but not a DVD player. I have never had this problem before with these discs. Why would it work in one computer with same burner at Max speed and not in another? Thank for taking the time to help out. Here is the log.

Its a mismatch between the media, the speed of burn and that particular burner’s firmware. Some drives work better with certain media than do others, and LG drives have been known to be picky about poor or mediocre media for a long time.

If you have two identical models in both computers, then one of the drives is not working particularly well. There are variations in quality of drives, and this one may be slightly defective, not calibrated properly, or in the process of failing altogether. Virtually impossible for me to be able to tell you exactly what is going on with it.

And by the way, the drive only supports burning those particular discs at 8x, 12x and 16x. You may have chosen 4x, but the software can only do what the drive will allow, and it went to 8x in the burn.


#7

Well this is an education. Thanks for all the info I am going to look into some other quality media, and eventually swap the burners to see if it the problem (the problem one is brand new). I also am going to consider what you are telling me as a factor, related to thinking I am burning quality backups (data), which I use these drive for constantly. Wow! Great to know. Thanks!

There are a few other things to try, like using a different SATA port or changing the SATA cable. These may be long shots, but occasionally help.

You can also try updating the drivers for your motherboard. The SATA controller drivers are usually included in them.

Hi, once again thanks for the all great help! I have switched the burners (exactly the same models) and the results instantly seems like the burner is bad. It did the exact same thing in the computer that was working, it made a coaster. The one in the computer that wasn’t working now burns perfectly at Max speed. I have posted to log to see what you think, and will return bad burner soon. Great to know about ImgBurn for diagnostics. I constantly recommend to people that optical media backups are underrated. I did not know that the integrity of the drives and media are such an important factor. This (broken) burner was burning data DVD’s and Blu-ray’s fine (so I think!). Thanks

I’m glad you’ve got it sorted out. I would still recommend slowing down the burn speed with these AML mid code discs. And better quality DVD’s are available, though Taiyo Yuden discs will be gone fairly soon. They are stopping production in December. That leaves Verbatim AZO discs as the best on the market. (AZO is the type of dye, and you need to look for that designation on the label). Verbatim also sells a lesser type, called the “Life Series”, which we do not recommend.

I just wanted to second Kerry56’s advice on slowing down the Write (burn) speed.
The general rule is half of the Max for a DVD . So try your burns at 8x with these DVDs .
If you burn at Max you will get artifacts on some discs & some may fail to play in some drives or players.

This is such a wealth of information. Thank you guys!

Hi, after learning more from your great information, I have been doing some research into really reliable discs to burn with. I came across information about M-DISC. Also my burner has the logo on outside so I don’t know if that meas they recommend it? But how do AZO discs stack up against M-DISCs or is it a different type of thing. Thanks

The Verbatim AZO discs use a specific dye and manufacturing process, but they are generally similar to other DVD-R’s. (DVD-RW uses a phase change metallic alloy instead of an organic dye layer)

M-Discs are entirely different from anything else and use some type of carbon compound for the recording layer. M-Discs do not have a reflective layer, which is a weak point for DVD’s, Blu-ray and CD’s, since this can tarnish over time and make the disc harder to read.

Some of the members here have used and like the M-Discs. The rest of us remain on the fence. I won’t ever use them, as I don’t need extremely long lasting archives on optical media, and I don’t have a burner that can burn them.

I am taking from the way you are describing that if you are archiving the disc and not using them day to day M-DISC are made for that. As for a reliable everyday use disc AZO is the way to go? Tell me if I am understanding correctly? As usual thanks for the wealth of information!

I haven’t used M-Discs .
If at sometime I do it will only be for important archiving.
For just doing most movies AZO is the best there is.
Get Verbatim AZO from a reputable source.
There are counterfeits of these out there.
I think a lot of the time these are responsible when someone gets poor results form an AZO disc.
