    Verification Failed Message

    What does this mean: "Mismatch at byte 1690/sector 1597912. Verification failed" I got this message after popcorn burned a disk and about 3/4 of the way through the verification process.

    Popcorn Hanging

    Aha !!!!. . . I finally got Popcorn to burn. I had to make sure I wasn't running ANYTHING else though. I shut down all my other programs so that the Finder was the only thing running, and it finally completed a burn. Interesting thing to note though is that I did the same thing with DVD2oneX2, and it burned it faster. There you go. On a separate note, why does it take so long to compress. The actual burning time isn't that bad. It's the compressing time that takes up most of the time. Is there anyway to speed up the compressing time.

    It's a kernel panic and Popcorn causes it. The fact that it only happens on Popcorn and nothing else, says so. There is nothing wrong with the source content because DVD2oneX2 burns it with no problems. It appears that whatever Popcorn doesn't like about it, DVD2oneX2 handles it better, whatever it is.

    It doesn't happen during the actual burning process. It happens during the compessing process. Popcorn never gets far enough to crash during burning. It always crashes during the compressing process. I have an iMac 800, 768 mb RAM. BTW, since the last time I posted, I've burned another 6 DVDs with DVD2oneX2 with no problem. Again, each time I gave Popcorn a chance to burn it first and Popcorn failed as always. So, it cannot be the drive. Nor can it be the RAM. It appears that DVD2oneX2 is just written better.

    Even if I checked the system using the Apple hardware Test " Extended" test, and it passed. I still could have bad RAM?

    Popcorn Hanging

    So it's the "bugs" in the API in Apple's OS that causes the kernel panics, not Popcorn. That's wierd. Then that means all the other programs deal with the "bugs" in Apple's OS API in a way that DOESN'T create Kernel Panics like Popcorn does. Do you think the Popcorn programmers are missing something that the other programmers know, on how to deal with the 'bugs" in the API of Apples OS? I'm using 10.3.9 and the stock superdrive (Pioneer DVR-104) Why does it sound like I have a burner problem to you? BTW, I've burned 8 DVDs with DVD2oneX2 with no problems so far. Each time prior to burning, I've given Popcorn a chance to redeem itself first. But no such luck. 8 Times Popcorn failed, and 8 times DVD2oneX2 succeeded. Do you really think it is a hardware problem. Should I take it to Apple to fix?

    Popcorn Hanging

    So you're saying it's a hardware issue, and not a software issue. How can that be when I only get Kernel panics when I use Popcorn. I never ever get these panics anytime else. I use all the iApps, MS Office, Safari, ichat, and a gang of other misc. apps with no problems. The other program I used to burn and get the job done was DVD2oneX2. BTW, I ran the "Extended" hardware test, and everything passed. So it seems to be software related, because it is isolated to Popcorn, and Popcorn Only. Can any programmers out there explain how two different programs, written to do the same job, one crashes and causes kernel panics, yet the other just works the way it's suppose to. It just doesn't make sense other than better programmers(competencies) than the other.

    Popcorn Hanging

    Wow.. I just burned the DVD using a different program(shareware) with no problems. No freezing or kernal panics. Gee, that's funny. Two different programs, written to do the same job, but one causes kernal panics and crashes, and the other program, . . . . well, just works. As I mentioned before, Popcorn is the only program that crashes my system. The many other programs I have work perfectly with no issues. Can any programmers explain why that is?

    Popcorn Hanging

    everytime I try to burn a DVD, Popcorn hangs. It gets about halfway through the compressing stage and then freezes my computer, or I get a kernal panic. This is the only program it happens with. I'm using an iMac G4 800 with 768 Ram. Anybody have any clues, anybody, . . . Roxio, . .. . Bueller. . . . . .
