Even though I have tried a ton of software the only way I can prevent a freeze on a layer break is with DVD Decrypter (and AnyDVD in the background) for rips and Imgburn for writes, this is old software and some newer media sources need more powerfull tools for a sucessfull burn (Sony).
I need to know when the layer break is determined so I can experiment with either the ripper or burner software.
I use DL only for quality, Verbatim only. I can't use Imgburn for burns as I require AnyDVD's new ripper to rip some sources which does not create a MDS or IMG file but a series of other files with I have burnt over and over with other software only to see layer break freezes every time.
Also do I want to check mark the DLA box on my burner setup? Right now it is unchecked. I deleted all Roxio Products but Roxio DLA will not uninstall, it asks for a disk that did not come with this new computer to complete the uninstall process.
Dell XPS 400 with Philips DVD 9701 (latest Firmware, just checked)
Just deleted all Roxio software other than the above in favor of Nero
