Trouble Copying Dvd On Emc 9

Question

I am trying to copy a dvd that I made. It is not copyright protected. I have two DVD burners and no matter which one I use the program hangs up. It reads the disc from either drive. Sometimes the copy works. Sometimes it doesn't. It recognizes the Phillips DVD R disc as blank media, and then I get an error message saying insert a new disk. I also tried another disck manufacturer, and that was worse. I have tried disabling drag to disc before doing the disc copy. Sometimes that helps, sometimes it doesn't. Any suggestions?

The obvious but long way around is to copy (or stage) to your hard drive and then from the hard drive to your burner.

 

What application are you using to copy the discs?

 

What is the ID of the two burners? What is on the DVD that you want to copy?

 

How familiar are you with computers just in case you have to update the firmware for the burners?

I am not home right now so I can't give you the exact manufacturer of the burners (one is TSST something. I think it is Toshiba). One is from HP that came with my computer and the other I installed myself. Both have worked in the past and I've had no trouble making CDs. I am copying a DVD of a violin performance that my son is using for an audition. It is NOT write protected. I tried burning an image of the disc in Roxio to my hard drive and then burning to the DVD. I also used Roxio copy disc in EMC 9. I have no problem updating firmware, but I don't think that both burners would need to be updated simultaneously. The medium is DVD-R. I tried Phillips and RidData. The Phillips one works intermittently, the other, not at all. I have been through about 15 discs. It works once then won't again. I could use drag to disc, I suppose, and copy the disc that way, but I'm not sure it will copy all the boot files.

Copying with Drag to Disc (yuck!) will result in a data DVD that won't play in a DVD player.

 

Also, if you are passing a store, such as Best Buy, on your way home, stop in and get some Verbatim media, and try that.
