That is my experience.... I've probably burned 100 discs that said this and they all worked.

DVD 9 (Dual-Layer) doesn't play well on second layer

When I burn a dual-layer disc, either with Nero or DVD Decryptor, the discs burn with no errors, and they play fine to a point, but then they start to freeze and cause playback problems.

It seems that the problems start after the amount of data that would fill a DVD5 (4,464); If I combine two discs, the first disc material, and some of the second might play well.

For example: I d/l'ed a Genesis two DVD5 set, a concert and some filler. The concert was split, and I wanted to put the entire concert on a DVD9.

I burned the original discs, and they play fine; I then reauthored using TMPGEnc, and the new fileset was about 5.5 gig. I burned with DVD Decryptor, and the last 20 minutes start to freeze!

Any ideas? Could it be my burner sucks at burning dual-layer, or is it a s/w issue or media issue?

FWIW, I have no problems with DVD5. I use Imation discs for DVD5, for the DVD9 I used Verbatim and Memorex.

FWIW, I had another issue burning dual layer with Nero:

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=18892

but it was suggested to use Decryptor, and that seemed to resolve the problem at the time, but now I am having this new issue.

It also seemed like the Memorex sucked, but I have had this new problem with the Verbatim as well.

Thanks for any feedback,
Aiko

DVD burning w/ Sonic

I'm trying to burn my first DVD show with Sonic. There are 5 .vob files in the parent folder. Am I supposed to put all five of those .vob files on the disc? When I try to do that it is way too big to fit on the disc. I looked in the FAQs and couldn't find the info I was looking for. Any help for a newbie DVD burner would be greatly appreciated!

Where - standalone DVD or PC-dvd - does the problem appear?

Standalone. FWIW, the Memorex media suck and fail consistently. The Verbatim work much better, but still seem to balk at times. I don't know if it's the media, the software, the burner or some combination of the above.

Thanks,
Aiko

Have you tried lowering the burn speed?

Re: DVD 9 (Dual-Layer) doesn't play well on second layer

burning at 2.4, which seems to be the only speed the burner wants to use for dual-layer. I can manually set it to 1 or 2, but 2.4 seems to be the one it should use.
Thanks,
Aiko

Do you have the newest firmware for your burner?
Are you a smoker?

you need to use Disc Copier and choose the folder as the source, this is Roxio but same should be true for Sonic

Re: DVD 9 (Dual-Layer) doesn't play well on second layer

Yes, latest firmware; and no, not a smoker.

I am burning my latest dual-layer d/l as I type this. I will let you know how it goes. This will be on Verbatim. The last Verbatim D/L I burned worked. Fingers crossed. I am convinced that Memorex suck. The only reason I got them was the lack of choice in d/l media in the stores I checked. I guess online is the way to go for d/l media.

Thanks for the suggestions. Keep 'em, coming.

Aiko

Well, that one burned just fine. Looking more and more like it was the media. I will have to wait till I burn my next dual-layer for more study data ; )

Question what is the best dvd ripping software?

Is there an EAC for DVD ripping? I have been using dvdshrink to rip dvd's, and just leaving it set to "no compression".

Are the ripped video_ts files ever identical to the ones downloaded from a torrent? (I doubt it). What I'm getting at is can you jump on a torrent to help seed a show, when you have burned and then ripped the files?

Thanks for answers.

Re: what is the best dvd ripping software?

the DVDs here are non-encrypted region-free. You can just copy them by dragging the VIDEO_TS folder onto your computer. check the md5s whenever you make a copy.

As for if the ripped video_ts folder being identical or not, you can check that using md5... see the "Checksums Demystified" link in my signature. But like I said before, you can just skip the whole dvdshrink step for the DVDs offered here.
