Problem after burning.


dire-x

Question

First off let me say that so far I've liked EMC9, that is until I try to test a burned DVD. I had some AVI files that I could not add to the MYDVD thing, so I just converted them to Mpeg format and was then able to add them into my project. After I got everything ready to go I burned them and everything went perfectly fine, no errors no hangs nothing out of the ordinary. However when I go to play the DVD on the computer that burned it I get an error message telling me "Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows.

 

Naturally I figure something must've gone wrong and nothing popped up, so I try it again and get the exact same results. Maybe it's EMC9, I think to myself. So I try another program, it burns fine and I get the exact same error. I've tried using several different file formats, converters, burning programs, etc. and everytime I get the exact same results.

 

I've contacted the makers of the video files I'm trying to burn and they say that they have no problem burning the videos and that their is no form of protection of any kind, so their should be no problem with burning. And I can play the video file on my computer with no problems.

 

I'm running Windows XP sp2 Media Center Edition

HP Pavilion ZD8220us

Pentium 4CPU 3.00GHz

1.25 GB ram

ATI MOBILITY RADEON X600

 

I would've gone to the other burning programs sites, but this one seems to be the quickest at answering questions.

There may be something wrong with the .avi files you tried to add to MyDVD. Do those .avi files play in Windows Media Player?

 

Did they have a red X through them when you tried to add them to MyDVD?

Woah, this is strange. Right now when I went to check whether the files gave a red X or a circle with a line through it they are suddenly able to be added.

 

Hmmm I wonder... I was having some issues with my laptop that were apparently from messed up BIOS so I reinstalled them last night. I'm thinking that those messed up BIOS may have gone further than just creating battery problems.

 

I guess I'll just have to try burning one last time to see what is going on. But that's going to have to wait for tonight, I got other things I need my computer for.

 

Oh and I've tried the DVD's on other DVD compatible computers and they get the same message.

 

And yes they did play in windows media player.

You might want to do a little computer maintenance. It will go a long way in making your video work go more smoothly, both for this problem, and your burning in your other thread.

Ok, well I burned an ISO file and that worked just fine. I could play the ISO file in all of my players with no problems. So then I used disc copier to put it to a DVD and when I go to play the DVD on my computer I get an error message saying "Windows cannot read from the disk. The disk might be corrupt, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows."

 

I've tried a couple of times and keep getting the same result and I've tried reading the DVD on other computers with different manufactuers than mine and still get the same error message.

 

This may be the end of burning things for me...
