Dvd Gliches When Copying


igripeh

Question

Hi there, I am trying to copy dvds already burned on my mac. The resulting disks seem hit and miss when it comes to producing a clean copy. I get break up, freezes, etc. usually in the last half. Often these dvds are in the 8~30 minute range. Most of the original material is from imovie. My machine is a titanium G4 powerbook 667, maxed for memory, 80 gig, and 768 RAM running OS 10.3.9. It is a combo-drive, so I burn using Titanium Toast 6 on a Lacie (Pioneer) external drive. My latest affair used printable disks that came with a new epson 220 printer. I burned and viewed before printing, and didn't notice a problem. Does printing the disk do this (though I've been having problems on non-printable disks also) Should I up-grade?

Use only certain brands of disk? Are my imovies too long? So many questions.

It sounds to me like a problem with the DVD media. Go to the LaCie support page and download the latest firmware for your LaCie drive. Make sure you buy good media (not Memorex) and set the burn speed at, say, 4X instead of Best.
