I've just bought a spindle of ritek 2x dvd-r media. When I try to burn a ripped dvd-movie the dvd's keep crashing. After trying several speeds and programs I noticed they chrashed when writing the lead-out track.
Reason, the disc is simply out of space.
Burning the same file to 3 different types of media works without a problem (Sony DVD+RW, Imation DVD-RW, and Princo DVD-R 4x)
The file I'm trying to burn is 4472 MB (standard size of dvd2one).
I burned with Recordmax Now, which first checks if there is enough space on the disc. The program says the disc has still 16 MB free. However burning will fail every time.
When I resize the file to 4200 MB I can burn it without a problem.
Strange thing is the disc still work in my pc without a completed leadout-track, but fail miserably in my stand-alone player.
Has anyone had similar experiances, and has a suggested setting for the maximum file sizes?
Does anyone know the average lead-out track space needed for a dvd-r?
Thanks in advance for any help.
