Stops Burning Without Giving Error

I have DVDFab version 5.2.3.2 and I have had no problems ripping or burning DVDs but I ran into a problem that has now wasted 4 DVDs and I am getting sick of it.

I ripped the DVD to disc (Good Morning Vietnam) as I do any of my DVDs. Then I burn them at a later time to media. This particular movie ripped fine and runs fine when you run it from the disc in a player but every single time I try to burn it with DVDFab, it reaches 11.18% then it says 0.0x (0.00 MB/s), Time elapsed keeps going, Time left is 00:00:00 and it shows writing and no error ever pops up, I have let it go for hours to see and it keeps ticking away but nothing happens.

So can someone explain to me why and don’t tell me to use Nero to burn it or something else, that’s not an answer/solution but rather a work around. I want to know why the software doesn’t work. Let me know if you need something else on this. I would send the IFO files but wasn’t sure that was even the issue. Movies before this and even after this issue burned just fine, its just this one particular one and I don’t get it. Thanks.

Good movie [B]!![/B], have you watch the movie on your hard drive to make sure that the rip was good ?.
also at what write speed are you trying to burn it at and what brand of media are you using ?

Trying different software such as Nero and ImgBurn could lead to an answer. If using these programs should fail also, it would indicate a problem with the drive. If they succeed, then we can look at the possibility of a software issue.

I would try running the disc thru CD Speed to, like Stormjumper said, check the validitity of the burn. ~ Mike

As initially stated, yes it runs fine on hard drive. :iagree:

As stated earlier, I know its not the drive as it runs, burns, rips everything else just fine. :rolleyes:

I always burn at 4x even though the drive is 16x, the burn is not an issue when it doesn’t even burn this particular movie. It burns others fine, it burns besides this movie just fine, and it runs fine, so what’s the issue?

Hi Guardian666
If you have ImgBurn installed open DVDFab and then go into common settings->Write and select it as the burn engine, maybe there is an issue with the VSO burn engine[B]([/B]DVDFab’s default[B])[/B]

I always use VSO but I will change it to ImgBurn and give it a go but that’s still not really a solution, just a work around. It would still be nice to know why the program can’t handle something it ripped itself to burn it back to a disc, it seems odd.

While the program ripped the files, it does not burn.
It merely calls on a burning engine of your choice to burn.

I understand that but it should be able to burn an image that it ripped back using the default method it has chosen to use to burn the discs, if a program cannot handle that process then its not a ALL-in-ONE solution as it boasts, its only as good as the workaround you can find for it. See what I am saying? After 15 years developing, I can make anything sing and dance in some way, but that shouldn’t be necessary if the program is written right. If we keep making excuses for a program then how is it supposed to figure out what’s wrong with it and fix it?

I’m not trying to give you a work aroung just trying to help you troubleshoot to see where the the problem is, there are many members/users that have issues with the VSO software because of issues it has with certain drives/burners.
You will find that ImgBurn is the BEST burn engine and more compatible with most if not all drive and has more control over the drive and the write speed, please make the following settings changes in ImgBurn before using it

Open ImgBurn and click on “Tools” located on the menu bar and select "Settings"
click on the “Build” tab and make sure there is a check mark in the following boxes
1…Check 'Close Program’
2…Don’t Prompt Image Details
3…Don’t Prompt VIDEO_TS Content
4…Don’t Prompt Volume Label
any other boxes can stay as they are.

To set the write/burn speed do the following
Put a blank disc into the drive/burner, with ImgBurn open make sure your drive is selected in the target window…(lower leftside)
Now on the right hand side click on the “Device” tab, now on the very bottom right you’ll see three buttons click on the top button to open the write speed settings page.
On the lower left side under “Settings” you will see a window next to “Disc ID” which will contain the MID(Media ID) of the blank disc that you have in your drive/burner, just below that window is where you can set the burn speed for that perticular MID once you enter the write speed click on the “ADD”…NOTE…each time you buy a new spindle of media you should check the MID becuase it can change even when using the same brand name.
the other dropdown window below is for setting a perticular drive/burner if you have more then one and one of them has better results with that MID at a different write speed

I know that and I appreciate it. I am just giving you feedback to help narrow down the issue and I did install ImgBurn as promised earlier per your request and had the same problem, but at least it gave me an error while DVDFab said it burned successfully which I still find asinine.

Here is the stop at the same place as VSO and then about 30 seconds later it pops up with the error:

and this is the error it pops up:

and now the problem that I have is that the movie plays in entirety and without a problem from the disc and all tests I have run on it don’t return issue with redundancy which usually means the IFO is messed up or the path is not working right. So why is this error coming up? or is it just the closest match to what is wrong?

Any ideas now? Is the setting of MID information in ImgBurn really necessary? I mean as long as you have valid media with valid drive, shouldn’t that be automatic? I will do it if necessary but I have been using these media with NO problems until this particular movie which I don’t think has anything to do with media or the drive. But I am open to suggestions. Thanks.

Please go to My Documents/Documents -> DVDFab ->Logs and copy the burn log of the VSO burn log this will have info on certain issues that may be present with the drive and/or system and paste it here in a reply :smiley:

No problem, the log is LONG so for the sake of space I will only post the entries for 3/23 and then attach the text file for you to look at if you need to:

Well to be honest with you the only things I saw in the logs of any consern to me is the media that you are using -> Media ID: [B]SONY[/B]-D21-00
since Sony does not make their own discs you may find they are in fact made by Ritek which are known for problematic issues and can be very un-reliable at times, which may be why ImgBurn gave you the error message that it did because the drive/burner is having trouble focusing on the disc.

Although not my primary supply of media, I have used them regularly in the past with no problem and other movies burned with the same discs are playing just fine and without a hitch. Its just THIS movie and its driving me nuts as to why. The source is good, it plays fine, yet it won’t burn which is just a noggin scratcher. I mean the media, the drive, the source drive, the application version, NOTHING is different but this one stands out as a problematic one while others are burning and working without a single glitch. I am so disappointed not being able to figure out why. :doh:

Thanks for your help though, I do appreciate you sticking with this and wish Fengtao or other developers of the software would get involved and try to figure out why, I am sure its a glitch in the program code but can’t figure out what since I don’t have access to the source and out of professional courtesy don’t want to decompile or run debugger on it. :rolleyes:

Are you trying to burn the file from your hard drive ? if so if you have DVD Shrink in stalled see if it will open it if it doesn’t may be the structure of the files got messed up during the rip.
If you can try using the original dDVD to re-rip it and don’t save it to your HDD but rather let DVDFab copy and burn it to a disc using ImgBurn.

Will give all that a shot and get back to ya. :eek:

I’m hoping that my last reply is right, cause I know DVDFab will do this movie because like I said it is a good movie and I didn’t have any trouble.
not sure what setting you have for PathPlayer but when I did this movie I had it set as disabled because it is an older movie and PathPlayer is not really needed.
