dvd backup problems!!

I have been trying to burn wav or flac files created in EAC to dvd-r blanks to archive. I'd like to stay with wav files, as I should be able to copy them back to hard drive and then burn as music discs....at least to my thinking....but, doesn't seem to work.

I have also had problems encoding flac files, so, if possible, I'd like to stay with the wav's. When I get done with a data dvd with like 6 cd's worth of wavs. I get a good data checkin Nero, but then when I try check the dvd by copying the files back to another hard drive, it hangs up and gives up after a while.

Update, I got traders little helper, so that's helping with the flac encoding, but I still am getting the same error message below:

I did get one error message that says "cannot copy track 01. Invalid MS-DOS function."

the dvd's are TDK dvd-r "data and video". so no listing of udf or iso on them that I can see...................

thanks

Re: dvd backup problems!!

There are utilities out there to check the data band on dvd's, such as the dvd+rw utils for linux (which would no doubt work for a windows box running Cygwin, if there isn't a native Windows version available.) Ohh here, did a quick google and found this for ya:

http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

Also be sure to read about media quality on that site, as lower quality dvd's would likely be blowing errors you're getting. I generally stick to Taiyo Yuden brand, or at the very least look for "Made in Japan" on the package label. Anything less and you'll be tossing lots of coasters.

Hope that helps.
