Video Stutters in Second Half - Why?

#1

I am still having trouble creating a dual-layer backup of my DVDs. I thought I had the problem solved, but I was wrong.
I have looked up a bunch of information on my PC in the hope that someone will solve this issue. BTW, I get up and leave the computer while it is reading and writing the original disc.
Somehow, my DVD Player, a JVC XV-N650 plays my original DVDs perfectly, yet has problems playing the dual-layer backups. The DVD player shows green bits and speckles towards the end of each chapter in the last half of the video.

Discs: Verbatim 2.4x or 8x Dual Layer (final result is the same): Disc ID: RITEK-F16-01, RITEK-S04-66 , Log reads: (Disc ID: MKM-001-00)

Software:
Read with DVDFab8 to a File Folder
Burn with ImgBurn at 4x, burning at 2.4x doesn’t help either.

During the Process:
Most background applications turned off, such as Avast! Antivirus.
Afterwards:
VLC Media Player reads the final disc fine. DVD Player shows green bits and speckles towards the end of each chapter in the last half of the video.

Set the AWS in ImgBurn for the media you using. Also when you set the AWS set the burn speed to 2.4x for them DL media. Next time when you go buy verbatim DL look at the package for where they was made and if it not say made in Singapore then do not buy them


#3

I see this in your log…

I 15:06:15 Source File: C:\Temporary\stlouis[B].mds[/B]

Can you give info on this file ? and does your player support that format ?

I thought imageburn was supposed to burn iso/mds files?


#5

@SJ , ImgBurn creates the .mds file in Build mode at the same time as the .iso file .
Selecting either works I understand there is some additional information in the .mds for the .iso. So that shouldn’t be the problem.


#6

I use the MDS (contains the layer break info) when I burn DL with Imgburn, never had a problem.


#7

My suspect is the media or burner & not ImgBurn.
VLC is very forgiving how does the burned disc play in WMP ?
Is the problem only with this movie or all burns ?

OK thanks I have never dissected ImgBurn guess I should huh[B]!![/B] :bigsmile:


#9

I will try playing the *.iso in WMP. Usually, I don’t create iso files. I just use DVDFab8 to create a folder. I wanted to know if there was a difference in the final backup DVD. (There wasn’t.)


#10

After swapping out DVD Burners, I noticed that the problem went away. The Verbatim 2.4x DVD DL Discs from Singapore work great. The 4x to 8x discs don’t work well.

Max speed is a bad choice, and Verbatim DL media doesnt come with RITEK MID, AFAIK!

Correct, the ImgBurn shows that the 8x DVD+R DL media are:

Physical Format Information (ADIP - L0):
Disc ID: MKM-003-00
Book Type: DVD+R DL
