having trouble burning DL

ok. I need some help... if you can answer the following questions .... you will have saved me from ripping all of my hair out!

I can't seem to get my video-ts files to a DVD+RDL? i never had trouble with the dvd5s, but the 9s are giving me trouble. i have checked te program, I have reconfigured the hardware and changed the jumpers and IDE wires. set the primary drive to master and the secondary to slave. (thrice configured) reinstalled the software (twice)... but every time i think i have it... one of two things happen....

* it tells me the dvdrdl is full. (and it's not- it's right off the spindle)
* it doesn't recognize the disc at all and crashes every program i have running.

I have tried different media, (now working with memorex) I even got it to work once and managed to get one whole disc burnt (and the disc works great).... which concerns me... why would it work all of a sudden?- i haven't changed anything, no updates or anything...... But all of a sudden it's back to this crap again, and I've coastered 4 discs and I've lost my patience. as you know the DLs are NOT cheap and I don't want to shrink it if I can avoid it. I have been to every web site i can think of to try and figure this out, and I just can't seem to find anything about it. I burn stuff all the time... i really am at a loss... i'm beginning to think a sledge hammer would help?

I'm running nero 7 essen. and have just recently tried imgburn, on Windows XP, I have 2 DVD drives, both of which are capable of burning dvdrdl. ...and still all the same problems. PLEASE.... PLEASE HELP! it works... it doesn't work. it works.... it doesn't work... it makes me crazy.


please and thank you kyndly for your help in advance....

namaste.

Re: having trouble burning DL

Doing a quick search and I don't think you're the only one with this problem. Have you tried Verbatim discs yet?

Re: having trouble burning DL

I started with Nexttech- which suck, and now i'm on memorex... i've now coasterd 6 and can't return them. I was hoping to solve the problem without having to spend more money. Is it possible that my drive won't even recognize the disc if it is something other than a Verbatim DL. (I've used memorex for almost everything else, and NEVER had a problem- not once.)

Thnax
Namaste.

Re: having trouble burning DL

Memorex are a poor brand of DVD. How long have you been using them for?

I use Taiyo Yuden for single layer and Verbatim for dual layer discs.

Re: having trouble burning DL

i'm going out today to get some Verbatim... hopefully that will solve the problem... but, if not, I will happily accept any and all suggestions!

Thanx Kyndly.
Namaste.

new computer - agree.
you are trying to burn .ts files - read here --> http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/613294


as for DVD5.. this will come back to bite us all shortly. You have the video (great) but its chopped.
For those of us watching via hard drive/memory stick > *your mutimedia interface device* > HDTV
the broken VIDEO_TS folders are unnecessary. in fact, one large file is the best for seamless playback/enjoyment.
I'm seeing .iso playback compatibility in more and more devices daily.

... well that is of course NOT the answer i was hoping for.

someone suggested that since my drive is an HP (is same as LiteOn) that i should Flash the drive...
So then I beg of you....
* should I try...? ('cause if i do it wrong- it could kill the drive altogether)
* if I fail, any recommendations on a new relatively inexpensive (under $100) DVD R DL that won't suck.
* or would i do better to just find a new drive? I really don't have the loot for a new puter right now...

Thanx to all who have been trying to help. I've never had this much trouble before- and I am honestly at my wits end...

thanx again.

Re: having trouble burning DL

I am glad i found this thread, I Use sony DVD-dl discs and 6 out of every ten i have to throw away, b/c it stops when the second layer starts burning. Does anyone understand why my burn speed for DL dvd's is 2.4X, but my burn speed for DVD 5 is 11.8X?

Cheers.
Drew

dvd dl (dvd9) should always be burn at a lower speed- it just ensures good quality. 2.4 is about the max you should burn at- even if you are using the Vearbitm discs. Have you tried imageburn? Nero isn't very good for DL disc. ImgBurn is free to download and use, no trial... no restrictions. go herehttp://club.cdfreaks.com/f34/problem-dvd9-nero-262859/ to learn more... you'll see what I mean. I did.

I believe what shopkin is stating is: just because you have a dual-layer burner doesn't mean you're able to burn dual layer disks.

your computer (especially if older!!) must be capable of streaming 8GB+ of data without a hiccup.
otherwise you get a coaster.

tuneup the system > reboot > turn off all unnecessary apps (and screensaver/power management settings/antivirus software) > burn
if you still get coasters..you need a new computer/give up.

That is what I'm saying....just because I was drunk when I wrote that doesn't mean I was kidding......I'm in the same boat. Sometimes it works sometimes it dont. Looks like I'll get anothershot at it tonight with schome's zero DVD. I'll make sure I reboot the old G4 emac and make sure no other apps are running while burning........
