Cannot Play Dual Layer Burns

Have used 1Click DVD for 2 years and have had no problems using the homemade discs. I've used DVD+R and -R with no problems using the compression method of recording. When I bought my Gateway Notebook it came with a Phillips DVD+/-R burner capable of DUAL LAYER burns. CYBERHOME does not recognize the disc at all. In fact, all remote function stop and I have to eject the disc to reset. Problem is only on dual layer burns. Anyone know about this or what could resolve the problem?

it sound like a defective laser, but first try a cleaning. remove the cover find the laser. using a q-tip a rubbing alcohol, dip 1 end into the alcohol & gently rub the laser lens, the using the dry end of the q ipt remove the access by aging gently rubbing the lens. if it still does not work the laser is most likely bad. good luck.

SOURCE: Remote Control problem

You may be able to find one on ebay. Otherwise you would have to get a JP1 programmable remote and either have it learn the keys from a working remote or download the file to program it for the CH300. A fancy remote like that costs as much as the CH300 so it may be more cost effective to just get a new player.

SOURCE: Trouble with my cyberhome ch-dvd 300

I have the same model player it pauses some of the times on some disks in some locations, I read at videohelp.com a resolution for this for skip frames for those who use PAL and mine skip frames after pausing though I have not tried PAL perhaps this remote code solution might fix this or some have had firmware updates though I could not find any firmware updates as any solution by CyberHome being this happens only happens some of the time it might not be possible to resolve this and taking it to a repair shop likely would not be worth it I am unsure if some software versions helps this Please let me know what you find out, okay? Email does not always go through, hence if you do not get a reply in 24 hours after you email me please try to contact me else how, okay?

The optical laser pickup is fu.k.d up.  You might as well throw away this cheap piece of sh.t and buy you a Sony or Pioneer.  There is a reason why name brand costs a little more- they invest in R&D and product quality testing.
If your handy you can open this puppy up and install a new optical lens, but why bother when you can just go out to the store and pick up a decent DVD player at a reasonable price.

Whats a dual layer disc mean then?


A dual layer disc is a DVD which is able to hold double the info.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD#Dual-layer_recording )
Dual-layer recording (sometimes also known as double-layer recording) allows DVD-R and DVD+R discs to store significantly more data-up to 8.54 gigabytes per disc, compared with 4.7 gigabytes for single-layer discs. Along with this, DVD-DLs have slower write speeds as compared to ordinary DVDs and when played on a DVD player a slight transition can sometimes be seen between the layers. DVD-R DL was developed for the DVD Forum by Pioneer Corporation; DVD+R DL was developed for the DVD+RW Alliance by Philips and Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM).[23]
A dual-layer disc differs from its usual DVD counterpart by employing a second physical layer within the disc itself. The drive with dual-layer capability accesses the second layer by shining the laser through the first semitransparent layer. In some DVD players, the layer change can exhibit a noticeable pause, up to several seconds.[24] This caused some viewers to worry that their dual-layer discs were damaged or defective, with the end result that studios began listing a standard message explaining the dual-layer pausing effect on all dual-layer disc packaging.
DVD recordable discs supporting this technology are backward-compatible with some existing DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.[23] Many current DVD recorders support dual-layer technology, and the price is now comparable to that of single-layer drives, although the blank media remain more expensive. The recording speeds reached by dual-layer media are still well below those of single-layer media.
There are two modes for dual-layer orientation. With Parallel Track Path (PTP), used on DVD-ROM, both layers start at the inside diameter (ID) and end at the outside diameter (OD) with the lead-out. With Opposite Track Path (OTP), used on many Digital Video Discs, the lower layer starts at the ID and the upper layer starts at the OD, where the other layer ends; they share one lead-in and one lead-out.

The Easiest Way to Use DVD Shrink


<b>DVD</b> <b>Shrink</b> is a freeware DVD transcoder program for Microsoft Windows that uses a DVD ripper to back up DVD movies. The final versions are 3.2.0.15 (english) and 3.2.0.16 (german), all other versions like DVD Shrink 2010 are scams. As commercially-released video DVDs are typically dual layer one of DVD Shrink's functions is to process the video into lesser quality and/or discard extra content such as foreign-language soundtracks so as to fit on a single layer (4.7 GB) DVD.<br /><br />DVD Shrink is freeware, and it is only to be used to create backup copies of DVDs you already own. It is illegal to make copies of rented or borrowed DVDs, or to copy them and sell them for profit. The reason we need DVD Shrink is because a regular DVD movie doesn't fit on the average 4.7gig size DVD disc, we <b>use</b> DVD Shrink to cut the contents down to size as to fit on the disk.<br /><br />This article will provide you <b>how</b> can you use DVD Shrink to copy DVD movies step by step. All you need is a DVD Shrink software and you will be able to store and duplicate all your DVD discs.<br />To use DVD Shrink, Things you will need:<br />* DVD Shrink program <br />* A DVD movie to backup<br />* DVD blank disc<br /><br />Guide: How to Use DVD Shrink 3.2 <br /><br />Step 1. Start the DVD Shrink Program and choose Open Disc from the menu above. <br /><br />Step 2. A box will appear. Choose which DVD drive your disk is in. Mine is in F: drive. The name of the disk will show up in brackets. In this case it is called NEW. <br /><br />Step 3. Press OK. It will read the DVD.<br /><img src="remote_image20110803-18141-1qmdivp.gif" /><br />Step 4. Shrink DVD size.<br />1) A breakdown of the movie will be displayed in the right hand column.<br />2) You cannot fit all this on your blank dvd so now press Re-author.<br />3) In the right column there will be a heading called Main movie. There will be a file under this heading. Drag this to the left column. The file size is usually more than 4,700mb and has to be compressed.<br /> <img src="remote_image20110803-18141-17xn34v.gif" /><br />Step 5. Click on the "Backup" icon. This is where you will choose a folder for your ripped files. Once you make a folder, make sure the box is checked next to "Create VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS subfolders" and click "OK".<br /> <img src="remote_image20110803-18141-sc8anv.gif" /><br />The movie will now play quickly in the viewing box, and you will see the progression of the rip. Once the rip is complete, the movie can be burned to a DVD-R automatically via DVD Shrink using NERO. Or if you have different DVD-burning software, you can open that manually and burn the ripped files as you normally would.<br /><br />Here we also recommend you the best DVD Copy software, 1CLICK DVD COPY PRO, which is a fast, easy-to-use, full featured program for copying DVD movies onto DVD discs. With 1CLICK DVD COPY - PRO, you can make a perfect copy with just one click.

How to burn dual layer dvd with windows dvd maker only 150 minutes pie showing


Everything is the same except you have to choose "DVD-R 9.0G" at the bottom of the DVD maker window. R4.5G is single layer and 9.0G is dual layer.

Let me know if you need more help,

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

Hi : I have a HP Pavillion a1218n (P4) computer that is about three years old. I would like to burn data to 8.5 GB Dual Layer - Single sided DVD storage media disks. My CD/DVD burner : burns, flip, burn...


Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,

Dual layer disc problem


Did you glance in the manual to see what types of DVD it would play (typ. DVD-9, DVD-4, etc.) and try it?  This site can't prevent you reading appropriate manuals, you know.

Computer file doesn't play on DVD player


Hi, burning a WMV file to a dvd wont work on a standard dvd player due to the format, easiest way to fix the problem is using Nero, and selecting video disc and it will convert the file when it burns the disc to a playable format..

Have a nice christmas

This just worked for me. Don't know how long it will last though. I found it on this webpage
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/15118/130292.html

To do a reset:
On the remote control press the SETUP button,
Press the right key on the remote 3 times,
The Preference page will show up,
Press the down arrow five time to highlight
"default", hit right arrow to highlight "reset"
Press enter to reset. Turn off/on machine, etc.
