Dubbing ...

Then understanding "copy" should be no problem!

 

cd

Its not that Simple..

 

I have two discs here. One is the original and one is a "COPY", yet the "COPY" is NOT the same.

 

I have a dubbing machine and the original gets rejected, yet the "COPY" does not get rejected, so obviously Roxio is not making an "EXACT" "COPY" of the original disc.

 

So I ask again, what happens when Roxio "COPIES" a DVD disc? Are there cases where something will change?

None I'm aware of. Have you tested the copy for errors in DVDInfo Pro, in every version since 7.5. What version of EMC are you using? Are you accessing disc copy from the home screen or disc copier from programs copy?

What exactly is roxio doing when it copies a DVD?? Is it writting a New Table of Contents? Is it writting a new table? When I do a disk copy does Roxio cahnge anything. Thanks

 

I don't think it changes anything.

 

You could try copying it and then comparing the results in Windows Explorer.

A couple of thoughts, altho I've never done any particular checking -

 

When making a disc TAO [Track at Once] an extra 2 seconds is inserted between each track because of the laser turning off and on again. This shows up on CDDB as two different, unrelated CDs.

(Check the track lists for Los Craneos and Los Caballeros -

(I think the title I did the checking on should be Amaqonqawanquichu - don't forget me)

Possibility: there is an extra 2 seconds somewhere, which makes it appear to be a different disc.

 

I have a few CDs by a certain group (and I've checked with DVDInfoPro, they are CDs, not CD-Rs), that got to the point they were no longer readable on the Phillips 12x8x32 / Win98 SE. I put them one at a time in the TSST Combo drive on the WinXP and burned copies - which the Phillips CAN read. My assumption is the originals are deteriorating, and the more powerful drive could still read it.

Another possible way to check just how different the original is from a copy is to use DOS and do an "XCOPY" using the "/e" and "/d" switches. One thing to remember though is that later versions of DOS do not copy hidden or system files, so you need to use the "ATTRIB" command to change those attributes.

 

I'm not sure though what difference it makes as long as the copy of the original will do exactly the same thing as the original.

The poster is not talking about CDs Lynn, he said "What exactly is roxio doing when it copies a DVD??"

Actually, since none of us works for Roxio, we don't know the technical specs of the program.

 

stazzza should check with Roxio Tech Support for a more accurate answer.

I considered "copy" to be the common term.

 

If there is some major difference between copying a CD to a CD and copying a DVD to a DVD, I'd like to know what it its.

I think that was stazzza's point.

 

Stazza said that " I have a dubbing machine and the original gets rejected, yet the "COPY" does not get rejected, so obviously Roxio is not making an "EXACT" "COPY" of the original disc"

 

That would indicate to me that there is a difference, but I don't know what it is. I don't even know if Roxio Tech Support would have the answer......

If you one day get a DVD burner you will see there's a lot of difference. Enough for several thick manuals.

 

 

You're right, ML, Tech Support would be Stazza's best option. He's unlikely to get any of Roxio's proprietory technical information from the forum.

Don't you have a DVD burner Lynn? You must find it hard to make all these comments if you can't check them out on one!

 

I could send you a DVD Burner next time I upgrade a pc with a new one. You could then install EMC 7, 7.5, 8, or 9 on the beast, along with the DVD Burner!
