Error Message: Problem Writing To The Disk


John Sadler

Question

Hi,

 

My first post I'm afraid. Just bought Creator 10 Suite as I've had success with Roxio in the past but I'm having great problems copying a disk. It's a DVD that I taped from a VHS video (via the TV) onto a DVD and then finalized. It works fine in DVD players but I want to make a copy of it. I have two DVD writers in my PC (which both work) and have tried to copy the DVD from one writer to the other but I keep getting the error message 'There was a problem writing to the disk. You can try again using the Retry button. You will need another blank disk ready'. Having failed twice this way I tried to Create and Image on the Hard Disk which worked fine. When I try to burn that image back to the disk I get the same message. Any ideas would be most appreciated. I'm using Traxdata DVD-R 16x printable disks if that makes any difference.

 

Many thanks,

 

Kind regards,

With the original disc in a pc drive click start, all programs, Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 folder, Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 Suite, more, tools, disc information. Does it identify the disc as, closed DVD Video. Is this disc a "Traxdata DVD-R 16x printable disc"? What X speed are you trying to write to the Traxdata DVD-R disc? How and in what application of Roxio EMC 10 did you make the Image File?

Thanks for the reply. I'm just in the process of copying again but this time using the source/destination drives the other way around (in case there was a problem with one of the writers. I just went to the Creator 10 Suite, clicked on 'Copy Disk' and went from there so it's burning at less than 1x rate at the moment - another 35 minutes to go. I created the image the same way - clicked on 'Create Image' (took a long time again) and then tried 'Burn Image'. I'm hoping there's a quicker way using the 16x drive speeds. (Any advice in doing this would be gratefully received.) Following your instructions above I can see the destination disk identified, correctly, as a DVD-R blank disk but there's nothing to say it's a 'Closed DVD Video'.

Ah. Apologies. Just looked at the Source Disk as you mentioned. That does say 'DVD-R, Closed, Multiborder, Data' with 6 zones whatever that means.

'Closed DVD Video'.

 

'DVD-R, Closed, Multiborder, Data'

 

If your burning a 1x and below your "Traxdata DVD-R discs" are junk garbage media! Can you buy Verbatim locally, if so try them.

 

Please go back to post two and answer all the questions. Otherwise we could be at this for a long time. :)

Copy got to the end and produced same error. I actually have some new Verbatim disks which I've just opened. As I mentioned the source disk does say DVD-R Closed. Didn't change any read/write speed - I, obviously stupidly, assumed the drives would automatically set the best speed. I just used the Easy Media Creator 10 Suite 'Copy' option to try the disk copy and to create the disk image. Haven't found anything in the Instruction Manual that mentions how you change the read/write speed. Hope this answers the questions.

'DVD-R, Closed, Multiborder, Data'

 

Your disc above is not a DVD Video disc, how it plays in a settop DVD player is wonder in it's self! If it was a DVD Video compliant disc, Roxio disc information would say that 'Closed DVD Video' not 'DVD-R, Closed, Multiborder, Data'.

 

Lets explain again how the original 'DVD-R, Closed, Multiborder, Data' disc was made? In a settop recorder from a VHS tape? Was that set for DVD Video mode? What make, brand and model # are we talking about?

Ah. You may have hit the nail on the head here. I have a Panasonic Hard Disk DVD Recorder. I played the VHS tape on the TV and recorded it onto the Panasonic Hard Drive. From there I burned it to a DVD and finalised it with a top level menu. I think I might have to go through the same thing again and do the copies via the Panasonic machine unless copying this as a data DVD would work. I might try that once then, if it still fails, give up. Thanks for all your help.
