Disc Copier will not copy DVD copy

Hello.

 

Can someone please inform me why, when using disc copier to

 

copy a homemade DVD-R from a standalone unit, it will

 

designate it as a multi-session recording which, despite it

 

going through the motions of copying will NOT. Strange both

 

these things do not happen with a DVD-RW regardless of which

 

method is used (One or Two Unit Recording).

 

Re: One or Two unit and DVD-R:

 

When using One Unit recording it will announce that it is a

 

multi-session and ask if you will be recording onto a

 

DVD-R/+R. If you answer Yes, then the Read Error will occur.

 

No will avoid this but on recording to DVD-R (the only other

 

option will be +R) chapters will be lost. Makes no sense to

 

me.

 

I have no problems copying CDs.

 

I'm using Win XP SP2.

 

Thank you.

 

I'm having the exact same problem. I made a copy of a movie on my lite-on dvd recorder and tried to make a copy of the DVD on my Sony Vaio Computer (I think it has a Sam Sung DVD burner in it). I only have one DVD drive and it comes out with the same message about the muti-session. No matter if I put in

-R or +R, it didn't work. I got one to come out but on playback it had pauses and froze. Then it locks up the computer and I have to turn it off at the switch. It's not like I'm trying to make a movie that has the encryption in it. It was a movie I taped on Turner Classic Channel. help...thanks... I also have Win XP SP2.

Since you aren't recording on the same equipment (Toshiba RD-XS32SU), the problem is not necessarily identical.

 

Since you have given no info on your setup other than the Operating System, there's not enough to make an intelligent guess from.

DVD recorders author a DVD that is not compatible with PC programs.

First open the disc in Explorer then drag and drop the VIDEO_TS folder to your desktop.

Google the FIXVTS download, use this for fixing DVDs created by DVD-VR.

Then open the VIDEO_TS folder and drag the VIDEO_TS.VOB file to the lower window in FIXVTS.

Click full DVD and your VOB's should now work.

It's a DVD structure pointer thing.

Now see if EMC excepts the files to reburn.

You should be good to go.

Thanks to all of you...this is my 2nd time trying to post a reply and I'm not sure if I'm doing this in the right place. In the last couple of days I have researched and learned so much. Thank you for taking the time to reply back to me. I shall try all the suggestions given. This sounds like you have to crack the encyption code just like trying to copy a movie.

 

I did get a movie to copy when I used a DVD+RW. But then I didn't know how to erase it. Oh well...

The Drag-to-Disc works great, simple and easy.

 

I'm so sorry, but I'm so green at this.

I take it you just want to look at the results once or twice and then delete them?

 

Because Packet-Writing is notoriously fickle about being read.

 

And RW media will gradually fade out, taking all the data with it.

 

For erasing, look thru the tools options (I don't have V.6 installed so can't check it).

 

(If you want to KEEP the data, NEVER format the disc, and NEVER use RW media.)
