-5001 since Leopard

Question

I'm trying to copy DL DVDs on a Mac Pro with its two builtin DVD drives. Since upgrading to Leopard and 8.0.3, I'm getting -5001 errors. I'm assuming it's a a bug in their software, and unfortunately, it seems they have nothing but canned, nonresponsive tech support. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know if their QA is aware of it. It seems that Toast has a history with this error that they've been ignoring.

The one thing I can say, is that I have this problem BOFORE Leopard, and that it occurs ALWAYS and ONLY when burning DL+ DVDs of small size.

I cannot tell the exact number, but a rule of thumb seems to be that a DVD smaller than around 6 Gb always produces this error which I also find to have no impact on the disc, which plays fine.

I have never encountered this when burning large DL DVDs.

 

Anyone with the same/different observation?

I'm having the same trouble - tried two different Macs, but both produce the same error. It should be noted that before 10.5.1 double layer DVD's worked okay, so I suspect it was an update that caused the problem...

Have you tested by choosing Save as Disc Image and then burning that to DL media using the Image File setting in the Copy window? Also, set your burn speed instead of using "Best" (after the disc has been recognized).

Yes, that did work... The lead-out took ages though... Now to see if its the speed setting thats the problem. However, this is with standard DVD's (which were also causing the same problem). However, going back to 'best' works fine.

 

I'll try the dual layer ones tomorrow.

 

Had no trouble with Dual Layer DVD with the speed set to 2x and over 1GB worth of data. Will need to try best and fewer files next.
