Hello all!! I am new to this forum and thank God I found it!! this is a great place to share ideas and information!
My problem is that my dvd drive will burn .AVI files to normal dvd +R and -R, but when i try to use DVD -RW media it will burn to it and play on a stand alone. But when i put the disc back into the drive to erase, the drive doesn’t recognize the files on the disc (doesn’t show that there are any files on the disc) and can’t erase them. I’ve tried different SW to erase like Nero 9, Alcohol 120, and none work. windows doesn’t even show that there is anything on the disc.
I’ve tried several different SW for burning also such as ConvertX to DVD, and AVS converter. I have wasted several DVD -RW’s in the process because I can’t do anything with them now that they won’t erase.
Can anyone please help with this issue. or tell me of a good avi to vob converter that doesn’t freeze up the video in my stand alone. I have a high quality stand alone also that is supposed to read DVD -RW’s. It is a Integra DPC 7.4 and does great most of the time but will freeze up on the dvd -RW’s that have avi converted to vob.
Also, I used Sony’s online drive test and the drive is functioning properly per that. I have the lastest firmware for it also, i think it is KY06.
I have to convert the .AVI files to .VOB and then it will recognize the files on the disc and erase- but what a pain. Is there a better solution??
Thanks for any help you can give!!!
