That's your issue, not the rest of ours. Like Lynne said, she doesn't have problems burning/playing them, nor do I or most of the others who download them.

you got it!

as i said

all my friends i would want to hook up

and i never personally spent a dime taping
was always just kinda part of the crew, running a cam

DVD9s SUCK

ill download em, and split em all day if the video is good

If my copies and 2 other tapers copies are tweaky, its not just my problem!


it may be the brand of DLs, memorex i think, or the original burner, our copies are simply NOT STABLE

Re: md5 question

Memorex sucks, esp. for dual layer I think. Verbatim DVD+R DL are the best. DVD-R DL of any brand aren't very good if I recall correctly.

Re: md5 question

Well, OK Drew, you don't like DL discs for your own reasons. I can understand that. But, can you understand that if the author chose to author and release a show as a DL disc that it should only be shared that way? That's all we are saying. Go ahead and split it for your own uses, but if you share it here, it should be shared in the original format that the author intended.

Re: md5 question

I see the point with that, my justification was esp. with being a new uploader is to upload the most stable form of the video, had we known DLs were going to give us so much trouble we would have requested taperguy27(still many many thanks) author this show as 3 dvd5s. While i know for certain that many shows on here probably have been in many formats before upped here(is there a way to tell?) I figured if my DL copies are fucked, why would i even think using them to share with.

Re: md5 question

im speaking in the royal "we"

I was going to tape both nights of this show

ended up only being 1 night

but i went to bonnaroo and made a bunch of money, a friend filled in for me

this project is AMAZING though, best buckethead boot i have

big thanks to everyone involved, and esp. buckethead for raging so hard for the cameras.

Re: md5 question

DVD9s don't suck. DVD9's are not unstable. Bad media is unstable not matter what format. I think you should be saying Memorex SUCKS. because it does.

DVDs should be shared in the format the author intended. If you don't like that format, that is fine. Don't assume others are the same as yourself.

Re: md5 question

lick my balls

dvd9s SUCK

too expensive, haven't gotten to much cheaper

burn speeds suck

i also question the longevity and durability of dvd9s

i hope every dvd9 everyone ever burned gets rotted out, i would pick 2 shitty no name dvd-r's over one 5$ high quality dvd9 any day. while its not the opinion of most media yuppies on ttd, i know its the only efficient way of trading dvds for me and for many others who cant afford dvd9 nor have a desire to fit twice the media on one disc. If it were like 20x the data id be down, which in 10 years it will be, as of now 8.75 GB dvds are not efficient

and your a retard because if i made you copies of my buckethead dvd9s>dvd9 youd be pissed cause they would fuck up, and you would ask for a new trade or working discs,RIGHT?

Re: md5 question

I agree that DVD9 is not good. I author a lot, and really missing rewritable DVD9 media to check if a DVD works before making a final version: correct layer break, chapter links etc. On a PC DVD works a bit differently than on a standalone player thus sometimes authoring error cannot be found on a computer.

sounds like you need a new burner, better media, and an attitude check. Your "facts" are full of shit. get over it.

I enjoy hitting burn and not have to go change out discs twice. I also enjoy watching a disc without having to change a disc. My time is worth the extra .20 to burn it once.

If you don't like DVD9s don't download them. If you won't to break DVD9s into two DVD5s for trading, go right ahead. Nobody is going to stop you.

You do realize, if there were something actually wrong with the data on the dvd9, your splitting it would not fix it?

I hear you about checking if a disc works. I shrink mine to DVD5 to burn a test copy. That doesn't test layer break but that is a minor annoyance to me anyway. Are you on a PC or mac? What authoring program do you use?

PC; I use mostly Maestro, and sometimes DVD-Lab Pro. Both programs work perfectly (as yet), and checking a disc I don't look for a software error but rather mine - like wrong link, button navigation, script error and such.

Your suggestion to shrink to DVD5 is good one, thanks, but I'll still miss rewritable or cheaper DVD9 discs.

Re: md5 question

i pretty much author stuff......watch it.....and then shelf it so my memory is a little sketchy on this one. did i do it on two d9's? or a standard dvd and one d9? just trying to remember. at anyrate, the media that was authored & burned on the dual layer disc doesn't change at all when you split. it is still the same data.

personally i don't care if you split it into 10 discs. it just kind of sucks cause my buddy spent a lot of time on the menus and i spent a lot of time mixing the show. i'm assuming when you split it that wiped out our main menu, setlist, and credits page. still you guys filmed it so do with it as you choose, no worries.

it is a bad ass video though!
