Try Something Different

Question

I burned a video of a lacrosse game to a DVD+R yesterday, AM. I tried to make an additional copy, and it would not complete the job. I tried four times and each time it would stop somewhere between 36% and 42% of the operation. I contacted tech support and checked all my settings as advised, but then it occurred to me. My DVD burner can burn DVD+R and DVD-R along with DVD-RW and some other formats. I tried the same operation using a DVD-R, and it worked like a champ. I'm new to video, and couldn't tell the difference between a +R & -R to save my life, except for the label. LOL I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had issues like this.

There are enough differences between the two so that Patent Rights are not in question… ;)

 

In the early days of DVD you had Players that only played one type and Burners that only burned one type… :o

 

Today it is almost unheard of!

 

Most likely, it was cheap media ~ hint if it doesn’t say Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden, don’t bring it home :angry:

 

There are 3 different copy programs within the 2011 Suite… Did you try all 3?

To be quite honest, I have been buying whatever they sell at Costco. Usually they are DVD's by HP, TDK or Sony. Who would have thought the media would make that big a difference, especially in this digital age. The burner in my computer is supposed to handle all different media types. And call me crazy, but the vast array of choices in Creator 11 confuses the hell out of me. I'm not sure I could get back to the same place twice in a row to perform the same functions. Jim you seem to know alot about this stuff, I know that AVCHD is a higher resolution than the regular format, only because it uses more disk space. Can I check off using AVCHD and then burn it to a regular DVD? I've been playing with photography for over 40 years, but digital videography is so totally foreign to me, I feel like I'm mentally challenged because it is so overwhelming.

I have opinions, but not so sure about knowledge :lol:

 

I also like Sony… They don’t make any media, but seem to buy good stuff to put their name on.

 

HP is off my list. They too, don't make any media and I hit a stack of their LightScribe’s that were hit and miss on the data side! Not much point in burning a pretty picture when the data/video burn fails…

 

TDK also does not make discs and their record is spotty!

 

Yes it does make a difference. If you have a Burner that is running at the High End of its’ specs, it doesn’t matter what you throw in the tray, that puppy will burn a slice of bologna :o

 

But if you have one that is at the lower end of the spec range and you feed it a low end disc… You get coasters :(

 

Lasers have a life and weaken as you use them. Generally they will last for years of burning and even longer using the lower powered Read Laser (you knew there were 2 inside the box ;) )

 

AVCHD on a DVD: Yes you can BUT it will only be readable on a Blu-ray Player!!!

 

Supposedly there are some DVD Players that can play AVCHD format and just because I have never seen one does not mean they are not out there :rolleyes:

 

Then too, keep in mind the LAW of Video… You can’t render UP!

 

If you are going for a 1920 X 1080 output, you need that to start with for your Source!

 

If you make one using 720 X 480 it will look the same as any other DVD at HQ…

 

All this garbage about ‘up scaling’ you see on Players is pure Hype. You can see for yourself, play a DVD in a BD Player and connect it to a HD TV with both HDMI as well as Composite or even S-Video and cycle through the input choices while it is playing…
