Hi, this is my second post on this site. Would like to thank tsante for his previous help. Hopefully he (or anyone else) can help me with my NEW DILEMMA:
Just upgraded my mac mini (tiger osx / intel duo core..) to the most recent 10.4.6v
Now..everything "seems" to go through all the stages of the burn just fine, *both on popcorn 1.0.3 & Popcorn 2.......BUT......when i go to play the disk various little "screen glitches (that look like some sort of defragmentation?)" appear randomly...and...THE AUDIO IS TOTALLY OFF SYNC. Also the movies won't start from the beginning w. the previews etc. *Basically all sorts of errors...
Now prior to this i was working with popcorn 1 w. the 10.4.5 version..and everything was totally fine.
And...i'm positive it's not the media. I'm using the same media i was using before. Even rechecked my other movies (of the same media) in my dvd player..and they're still playing just fine. *Moreso...i did TONS of "tests / experiments" on both popcorn 1.0.3 and popcorn 2...on BOTH..my internal (matshita) burner & my (firewire connected) external plextor. I used the two different types of media that i'd had 100% perfect burns with on my internal matshita (Sony & Memorex). Again, tried both 1.0.3 and 2. I used the "correct" (maxell -R) media with my plextor with both 1.0.3 & 2. Did regular burns & also mounted the image & burnt the copy that way ....ETC...ETC...ETC...(every possible combination i could try). Sorry to sound confusing..but what i'm saying is that i tried EVERYTHING in regards to media, the diff. versions of popcorn, my two different burners etc. So the problem is definitely not related to any of those variables. It "appears" to be a problem i'm having w. the Tiger 10.4.6 upgrade***.
I even trashed mac the ripper & both versions of popcorn...corrected the permissions on disk utility...rebooted...reinstalled mtc & popcorn 1 & 2 ETC..ETC..ETC........SAME EXACT ERRORS!
And, again (at the risk of being even more repetitive): The actual burn process "seems" to be fine. It's not until i play the disk in my dvd player (actually both my dvd players!)...and on my computer even....that the errors begin. And "again" these errors are wierd graphic glitches & major errors in the AUDIO SYNC!
Any help would be soooooo extremely appreciated. I love burning movies. I'm on the computer all day (w. my computer business)...and it's just a great little past time that i take a lot of pleasure in...and i'd LOVE to get this figured out. I stated this in my other post..but i've had several other problems with this mini mac..and am begginning to second guess the switch from a windows pc.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY INCOMING SOS RESPONSES!!!
