Question

I am able use program such as Isobuster, Easy media creator with these disks on my 4 year old laptop to get image files off but when I try to do the same on my desktop with Windows 7. Keeps trying to read the disk, takes forever and I give up. The computer works great with the image files but not the actual disks. Anyone know anything I could try so I would not have to use the laptop. Thanks.

Seems like you need to do something about your desktop's DVD optical drive. Since you can read the disc on the laptop, the disc is not trashed. Go to the manufacturer's web site and update the firmware for the drive.

 

If your desktop is OLD, perhaps it just can't read that type of disc?

 

You posted in the EMC 10 part of the forum. EMC 7 is not Windows 7 compatible. You should not be using that to read the discs anyway.

i have some unfinalized dvds that were burned on a standalone dvd recorder that is now broken. I am trying to get the information off of the disks. My four year old laptop running Windows Vista is able to make .gi image files with Easy Media Creator and able to make image files with isobuster. Disk tools in Easy Media Creator tells me that there is stuff on the disks. Will not close the disks. My few months old desktop slows down when I try to do anything with the actual disks. It does great with the image files. Disk tool basically will not even see the disks or just takes so very long. I am trying to find a way so that I do not have to use the laptop anymore and just use the desktop to get the information off the disks. thanks.

You disc's from the recorder are probably some VR mode?

 

I still don't understand?

 

Windows Vista is able to make .gi image files with Easy Media Creator and able to make image files with isobuster.

 

Is IsoBuster on your windows 7 PC? And is that how your trying to read the disc's on W-7 PC?

I have isobuster on the window 7 desktop. I am trying to use it to make image files from the disks. Once one of these disks is put in the machine it slows the whole computer down. Will not go on the internet etc.. Isobuster will list the different tracks and stuff but just does not want to make the image file. I give up cause it is so very very slow. This happens with every program I have tried to try and get info off these disks once one of these disks is put in.

I have IsoBuster on a W-7 PC and this is a old Easy CD Creator 5 Plaimum Direct CD RW Disc that is not closed and IsoBuster has no problem opening it.

 

Can you show me a screen cap (picture) and post it from your disc on the old PC or the windows 7 PC?

This is from the window 7 desktop. According to the manual the Dvd-r is listed in Video Mode. The recorder is a Toshiba D-VR650KU. The machine is from 2007.

 

DVD-R is a type of DVD media not a recording mode.

 

According to the manual for the recorder it records in the DVD-VR mode and the DVD can only be finalized on that DVD recorder.

 

Did you buy your copy of isobuster? If the free demo it will only show you what is on the DVD but you cannot recover it.

I meant with Dvd-r that the only recording mode listed is video. I only use Dvd-r and they are sony brand. Yes I bought the Isobuster.

 

Big difference between a authored DVD Video and DVD-VR mode.

 

The difference is what your experiencing in recovering the video.

 

Why the W-7 PC has a problem I'm not sure.
