Nobody can help until you at least tell us 1)what software are you using 2)what are you trying to burn?

 

You have supplied no useful info :blink:

Well, it's entirely possible that you have a failed or failing drive. But, first thing is to get yourself a DVD-RW disc or two so you can stop wasting discs. Presumably, since you're using DL discs, you're trying to write a very large image/DVD?

 

Make something smaller to test with.

 

Also, what type of discs are you trying to write, video? Data?

 

Try putting writing a few files as a Data disc. If that fails, and a couple different brands of blanks don't help, then it would point to a bad drive.

Hi

Thanks for reply and apologies for late reply.

 

1. I am using Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 and in this instance I have added 3 movies to a project, some 6.5Gb and then trying to burn using MY DVD to Dual Layer Disks

2. Disk I used to use was Verbatim 4 x DVD-R DL which worked fine and now I have new disks which are new on market apparently= Verbatim 8 x DVD-R DL

3. I have burnt on current burner using old unbranded disks which hold 4.7 Gb (Too small for current project) and seems fine so assume its Disk problem?

4. I also burnt normal date to unbranded disks but cannot do this to new ones

5. Burner details= 4X BLU-RAY DVD+/-RW (READ/WRITE) DISC DR

6. I took the 8 Speed ones to work and tried them but when I went to burn the burn button was greyed out? Speed would only show x16? So couldn’t test them on another burner

7. At wits end here. I assume with verbatim I have a good reliable brand

 

 

Appreciate any advice

 

regards

 

Steve

Again, how much time are you trying to put on the disc. File size is not important unless you are just copying data or video files and don't want to play the video on a DVD player tied to the TV.

 

You can get a couple of minutes over 2 hours on a DL DVD at best quality; more will degrade the quality perhaps to an unacceptable level.

There are 3 Movies created in Videowave

Total 96 Minutes

 

The final project shows in Video folder as 3.78 Gb

 

In MY DVD at bottom it shows : Disk 8.5gb used=7402.9 Free =1137.1 Time remaining= 00;16;00.09 (High Quality burn)

 

I assume thats ok to burn?

 

Was going to try a smaller burn, just didnt want to waste another DL disk but perhaps maybe worth a try?

 

the exact same File burnt to 4 x DVD-R DL, just wont do it to 8x?

 

With high quality, does that double the File size?

 

yes, i am newby

 

Thanks so much for help so far

Let me get this clear, you were able to burn the project to a disc at 4X but not at 8X? Who is the disc manufacturer/brand? BUY good discs.

 

When you chose to burn from EMC 10, select to burn to an ISO (Image) file. Name and select where the file will be placed. When it finished encoding, play the ISO with VLC free player. It it plays correctly, just copy the image to a disc using Creator Classic. If it play but doesn't copy, it is the disc or your burner; not the file.

 

Please read carefully : Time is the important factor; file size is meaningless. HQ will increase the quality of the video playback. Since you have only 90 minutes total, you should use HQ to burn to the DL disc. If you use the ISO file as described, Creator Classic will encode it to easily fit on your DL discs. it may also fit on a single sided disc with some reduction in quality. You will have to decide.

Hi

 

Downloaded VLC and project plays fine, I saved as ISO image and burnt to new DVDS using Creator and it burnt fine

 

Put DVD in DVD player and it says Disk Error???????????????????

 

probably nearly there but not quite

 

I wonder if its the MYDVD project I created ?? God Knows

 

Firmware-I did manage to get to dell and downloaded latest firmware but no different

 

I am sure burner ok?? I loaded data to DVD -RW disk no problem so can i assume burner ok if it manages to do this task?

 

Back to the Brandy

 

Cheers and again thanks

Did you burn the ISO image to a disc or did you copy it using Creator Classic - I think there is a option to copy ISO to disc? If you just burned it, you probably made a data disc that won't play. Thsis if from Creator 2010 but I think it is the same in EMC 10.

What is the make/model of the recorder and the current firmware? As well what is the make/model of the DVD player that you are trying to play on?

 

Hi

 

Burner=4X BLU-RAY DVD+/-RW (READ/WRITE) DISC DR (PLDS BD-RE DH-4B1S

 

 

 

PC = dell XPS 420

 

I went to dell and downloaded latest drivers ect

 

DVD Player Samsung Home Cinema

 

As mentioned, when I burnt to 4xDVD-R DL (Verbatim) all was fine, they now tell me that they only supple Verbatim 8xDVD-R DL and this is when problem started. Until then i burnt fine and they played on DVD but everyone says that 8X should not cause the problem?

 

Thanks for help

Created iso image and stored in Video folder

 

Double clicked and it opened creator classic and chose to burn from there

 

The burn went fine but would not play on DVD player (Said Disk error) Can I ask, does it matter what region disk is?

 

This USA 2? UK 1 ( I am Uk of course) would that have effect on playing the DVD in player?

 

Thanks again

I am still battling away, will probably be something stupid, normally is?

thanks

When you created the project, did you select PAL? Project setting have an effect on the ability to play but usually UK players will handle both. Perhaps your won't.

 

The new DVDs that wife purchased which are cheapest on market 4.7 GB. I made file smaller by removing 2 movies and took it down to 3.15 Gb

 

It burnt and played fine on DVD

 

Burnt same file to these 8x DVD-R-DL and again worked fine

 

can I asume that the movie in question which first contained 3 movies=Something wrong with it???????????????????

 

It states under 8.5 gb so should fit on dual layer but refused to Burn??

 

It did so with the first dual layers I had

 

I am going to build project again just to see what happens??

 

Thanks again

 

Steve

Try breaking the three movies up and try them. Good single layer DVD's (Verbatim) are around $0.30 on sale..

 

A single side DVD says 4.7gb, really will only hold about 4.3gb. Same deal with DL media 8.5gb will hold about 7.92gb...
