VIDEO_TS to DVD+/-RW

vbimport

#1

hi, i`ve been burning VIDEO_TS files onto DVD+R for playback in my dvd player without any fuss.
But, would i be able to burn same files onto DVD+RW for playback on a standard dvd player ? - (so i can format & re-use the same DVD+RW disc more than once, rather than burning onto a DVD+R & having to keep using new discs)
also, does it matter if i use DVD+RW or DVD-RW ?
any advice would be cool, cheers.

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Rewritable media can be burned in the same way of regular write once discs, so you only need your preferred burning software and the VOB-IFO-BUP files to write on the disc :slight_smile:


#3

thanks for the reply.
so, is there a prefered choice between DVD+RW or DVD-RW for playback in a dvd player ?

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

If a standalone is able to read rewritable media, usually there is no difference between plus or minus discs.

The only way to find which one is better for you is doing a test with both media in your standalone. Bear in mind, however, that rewritable discs usually contains a higher amount of errors (due to the nature of the media), so it is possible that both +RW and -RW will give playback issues. In most of cases, write once discs are much more reliable :slight_smile:

hi, me again…
ive just tried to burn a video_ts file to a dvd+rw but it said "burn failed" when i tried to format/erase the disc it wouldnt let me do that either…
i tried to erase the disc with img burn & nero.
i`m using a verbatim dvd+rw disc.

I think that the culprit is the disc. Even if it is a Verbatim, rewritable media are far lesser reliable than write once discs :frowning:

However, also the software can be the cause. For some reason, nero never worked to me in burning RW discs :doh: but I never had problems with imgburn :eek:

Try this trick (sometimes it works, sometimes not :doh:)

Run ImgBurn and do a FULL erase of the disc twice.

Wait a couple of minutes between the erases, so the disc (and the drive) can cool up a bit. Then use ImgBurn to burn the disc (in build mode you can do this directly without creating an ISO file first).

If this don’t work, try with a different disc. If also a different disc (possibly a Verbatim to be sure that you get a quality disc) fails, then you can try these discs in a different drive. If also in a different drive these discs fails, then the cause is definitely a bad batch of media. The only solution is a new disc.

If you can’t find a reliable batch of discs, there is an alternative solution, but is not a really cheap one… With a media player like this you can play your DVDs from an external HDD so there is no need to burn anymore :slight_smile:

thanks again geno888,
i tried updating my firmware from the liteon website for the writer, then i tried again with the erasing.
nero still didnt work but img did ! ive just put the video_ts files on the disc & things seem ok.
thanks, banksy.

You’re welcome :bigsmile:

Get ImgBurn open Build Menu. Drop AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS in there and burn.

Or make an iso of it (if need an iso) via destination for drive or folder. So can burn later or keep as iso.
