:disagree:…Not for me.
R1, WS, Platinum 5.0.9.0, Customize Mode (main title only).
I haven’t watched it in its entirety yet, but I just looked over my bkup
and it is a flawless copy as usual; even the fast action scenes look great.

whuzurdaddy,

No problem for me either.
Region 1, Widescreen, Fab 5090, Full Disc

Maybe your burn speed was too fast…

There is no special protection on this disc.

You may have a bad disc.

I was afraid of that…
Thanx to all who replied. :clap:

what should the burn speed be set at??

what drive and media are you using?

I had the same problem, then lowered the burn speed and it worked fine.

:doh:I have my setting set at recommended speed. ??? shouldn’t that be the best setting.

Hi Whuz,

Most on the forum say burn at 1/2 the speed that the blank media is rated at. I always burn at 6X since I am in no rush. I use media rated at 16X. When using DL discs I burn at 2.4x. :clap:

I cannot get the movie to burn and I’ve tried different methods. I don’t know what the problem is. When it gets to the finalizing process it will fail. Is there something I can do? How can I check the firmware? I have no idea what model my burner is or anything like that.

In a word, recommended [B]stinks[/B].
This is one of the default settings that never made any sense to me.

rogman49’s advice is right on.
A good rule of thumb for starters…burn at 1/2 the max rated speed of your blank media or 1/2 to max speed of your burner…whichever is [B]slower[/B]. You can tweak the speed later on depending on a specific write strategy for a particular MID

Same no problem using Verbatim +R’s 16X burn at 12X Region 1 using 5.0.9.0 full disc

So I’ve tried again today and my movies are getting errors when finalizing. Any ideas? Is this a firmware issue? I don’t know what to do.

Recommended should mean use good media and burn at 8X. Thats it. I backed up this movie yesterday with no problems.

What type of burner do you have? Have you tried another burn engine?

I also had zero issues with this one.

DvdFab Platinum. Burned on a TY. Nice rip and burn. :wink:

Is there a burn log that can be provided?

thanx to all for all the advice… I will have to do some tweaking it looks like… MUCH APPRECIATED!!!

Here is the log I get after trying to burn the movie. I have used the latest DVDFab, Shrink, and then ImgBurn [also have tried Nero].
