Hi This is my first post so please go easy on me.
I have the Sony dru-810a and I use Nero 7 and Discjuggler.
I use Good DVD-R Tiayo Yuden Media (I checked the Codes on the inner ring and it is ggxxxxxx, which I have read is original TY Media)
When I go to burn, It will only burn at 2.4x, 4x, and 8x.
Since when has DVD-R burned at 2.4x? I thought that was a DVD+R speed.
Also, I have created more coasters then anything (Probably on the line of 7 out of 10 coasters) I burn the discs and when i get a coaster, i use Nero’s DVD Quality Check, and there are no bad errors, and the quality says that it’s around 98%. But it won’t run properly. (I have been trying to backup my PS2 collection so my son doesn’t ruin the originals. (I am able to run back-ups on my PS2 with my Swap Magic discs.))
I always burn at the slowest speed possible as that what i have been doing since I started burning DVD’s.
Some movies Don’t load at all, and some run for a little while then get jittery and choppy, and some ps2 backups won’t run at all.
I have the most recent Firmware, as I installed it less than a week ago.
I’m scared to burn anything important like my Son’s Videos in fear of losing them.
Can anyone help me, please?
Oh, my system specs…
Asus a7v880 mobo
1GB 3200 memory (Kingston)
ATI AIW 9800 Pro Video
SB Audigy II Audio
2-300GB Western Digital HD’s
Windows XP Pro w/ SP2
I have had better luck with my old Burner with Junky media. (1 out of 10 were coasters, the rest were good. I only upgraded because I read that with crappy media, the lifespan is low, and i don’t want to lose my Son’s videos because I used junky media)
All drivers except for maybe the video are up to date.
p.s. If you want a screenshot of my quality check, I can. Just let me know… I’ll supply all the information you guys need. I just need to know what to give you.
