Fit To Disc No Longer Fits To Disc When Burning!?

Question

I am pretty sure this has been a recent change. I have been using Roxio 2012 MyDVD for awhile, and loved the quality of my finished DVDs. Recently though, my discs burn in small files that do not reach near filling the disc(for the best quality when choosing Fit To Disc option). I unchecked the new filter in Tools, but I always get the same terrible quality now. Playback on my DVD player is wobbly, fuzzy and choppy.

What the heck has happened to MYDVD?

Example: using Fit To Disc says that my capacity will leave 7 minutes of disc blank, then I burn it and I've only used 60 % of the disc. That doesn't seem right. It's like the Fit To Disc option isn't working .

 

Nothing has happened to Fit2Disc!

 

You want to use "DVD in FIT TO DISC and get really decent quality" That is a contradiction!

 

Fit to Disc has never worked properly and is to be avoided under any circumstances. It will give nothing but crap for videos over 60 minutes.

 

How long in time is your video that you think you need to use Fit2Disc? There are other ways to burn videos greater then 60 minutes to a DVD without using Fit2Disc and get much better quality.

I have seen a few people mention this about Roxio 2012 on several sites. I have had much better results until recently. Maybe my program is not working properly? The videos stutter, bounce a little and are super fuzzy. I used to get pretty great quality using the same setting. I burned a couple of DVDs about 2 hours long and they were terrible. This hasn't happened before. I've always been very satisfied with Fit To Disc. The disc would burn to almost fill the DVD(fit to disc). When it said that there was 7 min left, there would only be a tiny bit of disc unburied).

I've been trying to burn less than 1GB about 2 hrs of video to a 4.7GB disc. Previously Fit To Disc would do just that... It was fitting it to the best quality for the amount of disc(burning at least 90% full). Now it only burns to 60% of the disc leaving 40% blank and greatly reducing the quality to the point that it doesn't even play well. I've been using Roxio 9 for years, I've had 2012 awhile too. This issue is new.

You are not paying any attention to what EVERYONE is telling you :huh:

 

Fit to Disc doesn't work, never has, never will... It has always been irratic but Roxio uses fixed rate rendering so it makes BIG jumps.

 

You are trying to pack 2 hours onto a disc made to hold 1 hour so the ONLY choice is to drop to LP quality - 352 X 480 @ 4 Mbps...

 

Not all players can handle settings that low.

 

Keep everything at HQ and use these guidelines for TIME:

 

4.7Gb:

HQ = 1:06

SP = 1:37

LP = 2:22

ELP = 3:04

 

8.5 Gb:

HQ = 2:00

SP = 2:57

LP = 4:19

ELP = 5:35

 

If you deviate from that, the results are on you ;)

No, you people aren't understanding what I'm telling you. I just compared 2 discs that I have burned using Roxio 2012 Pro. One was made months ago and has about 1&1/2 hrs of ordinary AVI video on it. I used Fit To Disc(which I usually choose for everything...my default). The disc burned 98% full(the Fit To Disc always slid the quality bar to give the best quality for what was added to the production, sometimes closer to SD or closer to HD and the quality would reflect that). This has always been the way my Fit To Disc worked for me(automatically gives me the best choice and fills the disc).This week I burned a disc that had 1&1/2 hrs of the same quality video and it only burned a little more than half full. The quality of the recent disc is unbelievably terrible compared to what I used to get.

 

I am not imagining this. I've been a frequent Roxio Creator user for years!

I have burned many discs using this setting already. It used to work very well. The video isnt burning to the whole disc. I have the proof here. I am watching video burned a short time ago of the same size on the same discs .

 

Could it be the last update or something has corrupted on my computer?

It's like the program is only using the Extra Long Play choice, and leaving all kinds of empty room on the disc. The yellow bar indicates a nearly full disc but has stopped burning this way. I have tons of discs that i have burned using Fit To Disc in the past that are pretty #$^@ good quality, but not anymore.

Fit2Disc has always worked this way for me - only fills up half the DVD for a 2 hour video. It has nothing to do with any updates or upgrades.

I've been using Fit To Disc since the Roxio 9 version.

 

Well I could show anyone that what you are saying is not so by the discs I have burned.

 

Also, if the program says I have 17 seconds left in my DVD and the quality hits between SD and HD using Fit To Disc then why am I getting a half burned DVD that doesn't play on anything properly. I've been using Fit To Disc since the Roxio 9 version.

I'd be interested to know the EXACT MINUTES of the older DVD that was good quality, compared to this week's one which turned out only half full.

Are you willing to share that piece of information? It could be quite crucial to explaining what has happened.

I'm not 100% sure of the details of all of my other DVDs but it always worked the way the progress meter indicated (burning as much room on the disc as it said on the yellow bar at the bottom of the window.) Whether I burned a half hour or 2&1/2 hours, 350 MB or up to 1 GB, it would fill the disc up almost all the way. The quality would automatically set depending on how much you added. I only change the setting when it goes over LP and is in the red(I then change it to EP which I rarely use).

 

By the way... I just burned 2 45 min videos on one 4.7G DVD in Fit To Disc, so it does work (it said I would get between LP and SP and it was really decent quality.

346 MB Xvid HDTV 43 min (X2)

 

The last disc that didn't work well was an HD 700 MB 1&1/2 hrs. It was only burned to half of disc capacity even though the meter said it would be between LP and SP, the quality was horrible and was sticking & stuttering on playback.

Maybe it's an issue with a few files, and I just happened to find the ones that didn't work. I'll try some other ones too and repost if they won't work.

 

Does that mean you'll take back all the other things you were saying about someone changing the software on you?? :lol:
