please help meeeeeeeeee!!

Hi :slight_smile:

I wouldn’t recommend Ritek D01 (the mediacode of the discs you’re using) - the only DL I’d consider backing things up on is Verbatim +R DL.

It looks like the problem is with the media.

I tried with Verbatim -R and with Philips +R… I have a Verbatim +R, I’ll try a simulation with it and i’ll let you know…

If you’re burning an ISO, can you try with ImgBurn? The error messages are a lot clearer :slight_smile:

I’m burning dvd files… should I try to burn it as ISO??

No, just stick with DVD Fab then :slight_smile:

I am not familiar with DvdFab Platinum but do you have the choice to rip it in ISO mode to your hard drive?

Oops, yes there is a choice to rip the movie to ISO in DVD Fab Platinum :iagree:

You might want to update your Fab. 3.1.3.5 is out now.

fuck it! it doesn’t work neither with verbatim +R

check log 3

and check also the log from nero which says that the burning could fail right before I sart ti burn…

I’m getting mad!!!

what the hell is wrong??? :confused: :doh:

log nero.txt (1.98 KB)

log 3.txt (8.1 KB)

Update your DVD Fab as suggested.

In Nero, the file reallocation fails - that’s before it even starts to burn the media. So I would guess something is wrong with your video files.

So, what I’d do is this: re-rip the movie from the original, using an updated DVDFab, to an ISO on your hard drive. Then burn that ISO with DVDFab - it’s always worked for me that way. :slight_smile:

Edit: get the latest DVD Fab Platinum update here.

Trying to help online is hard to do as we are not sitting there in front of your screen.

Have you defraged your drive(s) lately? Have you cleaned out you stuff with CCleaner or a tool similar? Is your drive running in UDMA mode in the Device Manager? Do all of that and shut down. Then boot up after 10 secs or so and try again if you can. And update Fab.

maybe is some firmware problem ( hem… can you explain how firmwares work and how could i eventually update them??)

it’s all really strange because i never had problem with hundreds of DVD-R

ah… I didn’t rip the dvd files, i just downloaded them… I checked them with dvd sjrink and they are ok.

t’s all really strange because i never had problem with hundreds of DVD-R

That’s because with DVD-R you don’t have to worry about the layer break for DL discs.

yeah you could go to NEC forum and look around for newer firmware.

How many processes do you have running when you burn?

Maybe this needs to be moved to Fab forum?

Yep, if it was from an original disc there’s an option in DVD Fab Platinum to remove or keep the layer break.

We’ll assume the OP has read the Forum Rules for the moment :wink:

Edit: Good thinking, Rolling - the Fab forum’ll get this sorted :iagree:

Yeah I was just thinking that, rolling… will do. Maybe fengtao can peruse the logs.

Edit: Done.

I don’t know enough about Fab yet to help with DL discs. That’s all the help i can give in my posts.

These downloads you have, are they legal? :bigsmile: Try a store bought disc :iagree:

Thanks for moving this imkidd :clap:

how do you get to the Fab forum

You just posted to it?
