Can I Burn a DVD+R DL using Parallel Path Track?

Question

3/8/2007

 

Hi Folks,

 

Using Roxio 9 is it possible to burn a dual layer DVD+R using the option Parallel Path Track?

 

I am trying to backup the Navigation DVD for my cars NAV system. It is NOT a copy protected disk.

 

I drag and drop all the folders and files from the original DVD to a folder on the PCs fixed disk. Then I burn it as a data disk but it is unreadable.

 

The Roxio Info Tool shows both the original DVD and the newly burned DVD are equal EXCEPT that the original DVD is a "Parallel Path Track."

 

By this I mean, both DVDs are dual layer, closed, data, and are "01 - Zone - 464210-0628" (volume name). All the files are copied perfectly to the newly burned DVD.

 

Is there somewhere where I can ask for a Parallel Path Track burn?

 

Or does one of the various burning options burn it as a Parallel Path Track as ther default burn option.

 

By the way, Parallel Path Track means: Dual layer DVDs which have both layers recorded as clockwise spirals which start from the inside of the disk and go out.

 

Thanks,

JerryF

As I understand (hardly an expert) all 'plus' DL media is made that way, whereas 'dash' DL media goes from hub to edge on side one and edge to hub on side 2.

 

Did you try using Disc Copier? There may be files that you can't see on the disc where Disc Copier will see everything that is there.

 

Jim,

 

I did try Disc Copier and it did not work either, although; even if it did I need to copy the DVD into my PC, add one new file,remove one file, and reburn it to a new DVD.

Jim,

 

I did try that and the disk was unreadable in the NAV unit so I compared

the original DVD with the just burned DVD.

 

Using the Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 DISK INFO tool I could see that both

the original DVD I have and the copies that I burned from it were identical

EXCEPT that the original factory DVD said it was done as a Parallel Path

Track and my burned copies was not say that.

 

My problem is how do I tell the software to burn it as a Parallel Path Track.

 

By the way, Parallel Path Track (PPT) means: Dual-layer DVDs which have both

layers recorded as clockwise spirals which start from the inside of the disc

and go out.

 

Roxio sems to call it Parallel Path Track. Most others call it Parallel Track Path.

 

Best, Jerry
