I’ve been digesting as much help as possible from the forums, but it’s back to basics for me I think. I thought I had my DVD backup process working, I was using Ritek R02-01 x4 DVD+Rs with DVD Decryptor and DVD Shrink. Everything was working fine until I ran out of blank media.
I got a good price on a spindle of Ritek G05 x4 DVD-Rs and bought them. Using the same software and exactly the same approach as before, now DVD Shrink gets right to the very end of the burn process, 99% in fact, before telling me the burn process has failed. The error message says something about writing the lead-out.
I have made sure I had the latest firmware for my burner, which is a Sony DW-U18A. Using Omnipatcher I have checked that this firmware lists Ritek G05 -Rs as burnable up to x8, but even when I burn at x4 to be sure, I get the same error message.
Frustration is creeping in, any advice much appreciated.
