DVD Burning


Helmutt

Question

i have been producing private DVDs for a number of years with no problems (well obviously not really .. but you know what I mean) using Roxio 7. I bought a set of Phillips DVDs today and cfailed to burn a production which I've already burned 10 copies of with Sony DVDs. I get error message which went something like 0x80004005. Does thi smake any sense. I'm not sure if I've installed something whcih has stopped my burner from working (like a did a few weeks ago with IE&) or whether the DVD manufacturer really makes htat much difference. If it does is there a list of recommended manufacturers for this application ?

 

Thanks

If you didn't have problems with the Sony blanks and are having problems with the Philips ones - I'd go for incompatibility with the media.

 

Try a different brand and see if that works.

 

Personally I just ask the guy behind the counter at my supplier what he uses (and buy a batch of those)

Altho, since it is the firmware of the drive that enables it to recognize the media, a firmware update of the drive MIGHT fix the problem.

 

The error message decodes to "unknown error", which is what the system comes up with when it hasn't got the foggiest what's wrong.

It's not this application that causes the problem

 

It's you DVD burner. Some brands of DVDs work best with a specific DVD burner.

 

Check your DVD burner manufacturer's website to see which 'brands' of DVDs they recommend. It's usually under the Customer Support tab.

 

And you might also want to defragment your hard drive just in case fragmented files are causing a problem.
