Error Burning Dvd's

Question

Hi, not sure if you guys can help or not but here's my problem. Sometimes not always, but it seems more frequent lately, while burning DVD to DVD, or to HDD I get about 70% to 80% completion & then I get an error messsage stating "There was an error reading from the source file(s)."

 

I'm using EMC10, system is in sig. The last time I tried to burn a DVD I had EMC log to file which I can post a copy of if it will help, but its a pretty long file. At the end of the file it states "Encoding Failed with error 0x22"

 

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

If I'm reading this correct? Are you reading from a burned DVD to the Hard Drive or another DVD?

 

What name brand DVD Media are you using and at what X speed are you burning at?

 

That would be a read error usually caused by the DVD media. Use a disc quality check tool like, DVDInfo Pro, Google free download, or #1 in my signature, free CD-DVD Speed renamed DiscSpeed, #2 in my signature, CD-DVD Speed / Disc Speed - A user guide. They will read the DVD Disc and report read errors.

I'm reading from a DVD to DVD +-R, or DVD to hard drive, have this problem with both instances.

 

I use Memorex Lightscribe disc's, burns at 16x I believe?

 

I downloaded DVDInfo Pro (freedownload), not sure what to do with it yet, guess I'll have to play with it for a while?

If the error is "There was an error reading from the source file(s)" while you're reading from a DVD, then either the source DVD has errors or your drive is faulty [dirty lens or failing drive].

 

I'd suggest you forget about burning for the moment and concentrate on getting a clean read from the disc to the HD. If you're trying to burn at the same time the read error will generate encoding or writing errors, and they will lead you all over the place like red herrings.

 

Clean your disc and try again to copy it to your hard drive. Use Windows Explorer to do that. If it works without error, burn your disc from the files on the HD.

 

If you still get a source error when trying to read the disc, check the source disc on someone else's machine. If it goes well on theirs, you know there is something wrong with your drive. If it errors, then you know the disc is faulty.

No Sir.

 

It's hard to work out whether he's having trouble with trying to copy source discs he burned or with source discs someone else burned.

 

I think it would be best if he sorted the read problem out first, but I didn't want to write ". . .as I'm sure you meant to say . . " :lol: or to hijack your thread.

 

Regards,

Brendon
