This is the first time I have encountered this problem, I am not even sure it is caused by Nero, but I don’t see any other possible explanation.
My system is running Win XP Pro SP1, the DVD burner is Lite-On DVDRW LDW-411S.
I have 3 foreign (ie non-US) (Kurosawa’s Dreams, City of God and Frida) movies (all are avi’s, xVID codecs), with subtitles that I am trying to burn on one DVD. They all play fine off my hard drive, but after they are burned on the DVD, none of the DivX players I have plays them anymore, they all crash, and GSpot alos crashes while trying to Render them, even though it renders perfectly the files on the hard drive.
I ran burncompare to compare bit by bit the files burned on the DVD with the files on the hard drive, and there were no errors, the files are identical !!! I have tried different media (CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, I don’t have a DVD-RW), and it happens with all of them. I am burning in DVD-ISO mode, at 4x speed and 2.4x
The DVD burner works just fine, I just finished burning some other stuff, both in DVD-ISO and DVD Video, and it was all fine. I am really at a loss as to what is going on, and why it happens only with these 3 movies. Could it be something related to the fact that the original movies might have been from a different DVD region, and when they are played off the DVD, the region encoding is still ‘active’ ?
Any idea/suggestion/recommendation would be DEEPLY appreciated, I am at my wit’s end after 4 days of trying all the things I could think off.
Many many thanks in advance.
