Can you post a link to any guides on par2 recovery? I've only had one experience of it, but that was quite some time ago.
I was looking into this like a week ago, here is a link I got from ha:

Re: dvd burning software

Toast..... at least that is what I use on my Mac.

I believe PCers use Nero.

Re: Cyclical Redundancy Error

Interesting. Looks fairly simple. I'll be sure to include this data into my burns from now on. How good should the efficiency be? Obviously the highest possible will ensure that all files can be restored, but at a certain point the filesize gets to be a bit much.

Re: Cyclical Redundancy Error

Use Quickpar...it's the most comprehensive filechecker of it's type, and is free software:
http://www.quickpar.org.uk/

I personally use as close to 20% rendundancy as I can. As you add files, it automatically sets the block size to be the most efficient that it can, generally > 95%. I also recommend unchecking the option that forces blocks to be the right size for usenet posting, unless you're planning on seeding them there.

I am currently going through my collection of 180 DVDRs and checking them for errors, and reburning as much as possible to new discs, with par2 recovery volumes.

Re: dvd burning software

I am a PC user, and I use Nero for burning and DVDDecrypter for ripping.

Those both work great for me, and there is a decent program called dvd2one to compress those pesky dual layer discs down so you can burn it on a single layer dvd. You can select movie only vs full disc, but I haven't noticed much of a difference either way.

Nero will convert mpeg to dvd pretty easily, but make sure that you note that the dvd was created from a compressed mpeg. If you have a bunch of avi files, my advice would be to not even mess with it. You have to convert the avi to mpeg before you can convert it to dvd files and you lose quality each time you convert it, so the dvd doesn't look nearly as good as the original avi file.

Just make sure you put down any source info when you create dvds. Dvds created from mpeg and avi files are the equivalent of mp3 sourced audio shows when you really get down to it.

I also use Nero to burn and DVDDecrypter to rip...for dual layer discs I use dvdshrink instead of dvd2one which I used to use before dvdshrink came out (if I am thinking of the right program).

Re: dvd burning software

I just switched over to Record Now Max for burning since I can put the txt, md5 and artwork outside the VIDEO_TS folder. I heard that there have been problems doing this with Nero.

Otherwise use something to resurface the disc and it should work.
I've had the same problem with one dvdr I have...and the disc appears flawless. It won't copy the one vob file but plays in all my dvd players (minus the standalone as it won't read -R)...can't believe it's a degredation issue since it does actually play just fine
