Import Error 0x80048003 on DVD-VR with Pegasys and TMPGEnc Products

Typically a DVD-VR media format is in ISO9660, UDF v1.02 with an import label of DVD-RECORDER and the preferred Media format is that of DVD+RW that can be written on without finalizing a erased several hundred times before it fails.

If you are trying to import a DVD-VR created on a DVD Recorder into your PC for editing and re-encoding you might get this error with either the excellent TMPGEnc Authoring Works v4.0; TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress or the TMPGEnc MPEG Editor v2.0







When using the preferred media format of DVD+RW It might be able to find the VIDEO_TS folder and software like VSO Inspector OR Nero ROM's Info Tool may also indicate that the DVD-VR has track information on it as shown below



Possible Faults :

  • Corrupt VOB or VOB's this is the most common fault.
  • The DVD+RW reads in the DVD recorder as BLANK means that it has not authored the media correctly.
  • Faulty DVD+RW media that can only be used a finite number of times, you need to bin it and buy new media and try to record the Video again for re-import.
  • The AUDIO_TS folder is missing.
Possible Solutions:

Create an ISO file using Lightning's Excellent ImageBurn then import the DVD-VR from a mounted drive you can either use Slysoft's Virtual CloneDrive OR Alcohol 52% FE to do this make sure that you read at about X2.4 or slower and check the ignore read errors shown in red in the Settings Menu




Use DVD Shrink great user guide by Mr. Bass there also to try to import as much of the media as possible it might fail however but you will find out where the DVD-VR fails on the import it will also save the files that it has imported correctly for you which is a bonus and save them in a folder called DVD_VR or whatever the DVD Recorder labels the media as.



In this case DVD Shrink throws an I/O read error 19 seconds before the end of the track or 65% good files fails on 66%



This case shows a DVD-VR that has 10 good files however the last three VOB's of the DVD-VR format are unreadable hence the 0x80058003 error on DVD-VR import.

If you use Total Commander you can copy the 7 good files to the Harddrive and use evilmaster's excellent VOBMerge v2.51 remixed to join VTS_01_1 to VTS_01_2 together as the IFO files are still intact this will work and you will be able to import the resultant file for editing.



This is not ideal however you will still be able to retrieve about 50% of the video data from the corrupt DVD-VR from the first 2 complete Video Object Blocks (VOBs)



Even if your VOB's are not consecutive like in this example you can still join them and import then using the Add File Option or add the individual VOB's as long as the video that you want to edit is on the good VOB then you are OK.



Each one contains typically 30 mins of SLP DVD-VR video (MPEG-2 @ 720 x 576 4,380kbps 25fps) you may also need to change the file extension of merged.vob to merged.mpg to avoid any import errors although in my experience VOBs will import correctly in the latest versions of the software despite the warning shown below.

what is +vr and how do I remove it


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewriteable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again in later time, on VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.
Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD also support VR mode-like features.

Accordingly when DVD recorders became a viable option the features offered by <Video Mode> were minimal - the linear structure did not allow post recording editting or non-linear playback. Thus the DVD Forum devised Video Recording (VR) mode.

Unlike DVD-Video this uses a much simplier file structure that allows non-linear modification to the recorded data. This means features such as partial erase, editting, playlists, simulataneous record/playback, mixing of different media types (JPEG, MPEG1/2/4, MP3, WMA, WMV etc) and, in future models, dual record are all possible."

That basically summerises the differences: video is a linear recording that should end up DVD-Video compatible, VR is a digital recording mode that allows HDD-like functionality on disc.

Do you need to always be able play your recorded DVD-RW discs on other DVD Players? If yes you have to use Video Mode, although some players will play VR mode discs, and you can test this easily by giving it a go.

The main differences are:

DVD Video mode on DVD-RW

Plus points: Provides good compatibility (70% plus). That’s the only plus, plain and simple.

Negative Points: Only simple linear editing possible, really just hiding a title. You can reuse space only when you delete the last title or completely reformat but lose everything in the process. No defect management. Requires finalisation to play in other DVD Players. No possibility of time-slip, i.e. recording and playing back at the same time.

DVD VR mode (Video Recording)

Plus points: Better use of recording rates by having intermediate resolutions. Defect management so reliable. Time-slip on 2 speed media if supported by the recorder, allowing record and playback at the same time. Non-linear editing. Any space freed is reused automatically (think hard-drive or Mini-Disc) and added to the remaining time.

Negative Points: Not very compatible with existing DVD Players, plain and simple.

Of course if you have a hard-drive based recorder then all the negatives are wiped out, as you use VR mode on the hard-drive which gives you all the pluses of VR mode, then record to DVD-RW in Video Mode to give you the compatibility to play the disc elsewhere.
- A recording on DVD-RAM will always use VR mode
- A recording on DVD-R will always use Video mode
- A recording on DVD-RW can be either Video or VR depending which is set before the recording is made.
- A recording to DVD+RW or DVD+R will always use Video mode
- Many HDD/DVDR combi recorders will record to the HDD in VR mode and allow you to dub (digitally) to DVD-R in Video mode.

format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
