DVD with unreadable sector

I burned a DVD to send to a duplicating house in Singapore. I had no problems with the disc in my burners or players, but the duplicating house said that it had an unreadable sector. How do I fix the problem or scan the disc for similar problems before sending another disc?

Re: DVD with unreadable sector

One way that I test the discs is to rip your burned disc back on to your computer with ImgBurn - usually if there are unreadable sectors, ImgBurn will report it.

I have two identical drives that are "successfully" burning unreadable DVDs. At the end of burning it says "writing lead in". When they used to work properly, it said "writing...

It sounds like somehow instead of burning a DVD to view in a typical DVD player, you are burning a DVD Data disc. This would account for the lack of a Table of Contents (it is possible to burn a DVD without a Table of Contents but from you post it sounds like you have that feature enabled). Verify what option you are choosing from your software package (Roxio, Nero etc) that you are in fact burning a Video DVD. You may also want to check off the "verify prior to burning" option to prevent making more "coasters". Since you are experiencing the same problem on both drives, it's hardly unlikely that it is a hardware problem. Best of luck!

When i push copy on my DVD burner it says,Target Overflow,what do that means becouse it wont let me burn nothing its a[ TEAC 1 1 DVD/CD duplicator]

It happens to me also ALL the time with mine. I have a 7 disc duplicator machine I do for weddings and special events. And it's a real pain and costly to have that come up when you need the project done soon. My solution is to change the brand on the master disc. Burn another copy of the master disc on your computer to another brand and then use that brand as the new "master" in the duplicator. (1 sollution)

"Target Overflow" basically means that either sometimes the master disc has too much information on it to burn than the disc you want to copy can hold, or sometimes a CD may be in by mistake instead of DVD. If you have a Dual layer DVD disc you want to make copies of and you only have the basic 4.7GB standard DVD blank's not enough storage space on the disc to burn so you will see that error also. It should really say "not enough space to burn) lol..but I guess that's asking too much.

Sometimes all is correct with the DVD size and it'll come up for no reason (usually the master disc is still spinning and hasn't stopped but you've already pressed the "Copy" button, it's not "ready" so an error of "target overflow" will come up)

I've had mine for 6 years so I've done alot of testing and trial and error to come to the above conclusions.
I find that these brands work for the best "thorough" burns.

Is there a software update for lightscribe for lacie d2 blue ray burner, so that I can burn dvd titles on a disc?

When you say "burn dvd titles on a disc", do you mean to write (laser-etch) the name of the movie on the plastic disk? I am assuming that is what you mean. If not, please describe what you mean. . No, LaCie does not make a Blu-Ray LightScribe drive. This is a technology/hardware problem, not a software problem. . There are a small number of internal (I know you want external) Blu-Ray burners with Lightscribe hardware built in. Here is one: LG LightScribe GGW-H20L Blu-Ray DVD Sata Drive. . The Lightscribe website says no such media exists, even though the drives have been available since June of last year: Watch that site for info about the media. Once the media is available, you will be able to buy the external drive you want. . Here is a burner for only $4,400 (that is not a typo): . OK, it is a duplicator (burns up to 11 copies at once), hence the high price, but useless without the media. . BTW - It is a simple matter to buy an external USB2 or FW case and put an internal burner in that case to make an external drive. . --Dave

I have tried burning 2 dvd's now one was a double layer and one regular, they play on the computer but not on the house dvd player, I haved tried two diffrent dvd players, any ideas?

It could be that the two home dvd players you tried would not play the format of your burned discs. Not all units will play both +R's and -R's. The other problem could be that your burner is out of alignment enough that only your burner will play the disc's you create on that unit. If you have a warranty on the burner it would be worth either getting it tested or exchanged.

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

Plz help!!!

It sounds to me like it is one of two things. More likely that you are using a very low quality DVD. Yes there is a difference in the media that you put in and too cheap is just that, cheap. Not all the dyes that are put into a disk are equal. You can try to buy better name brand disc and try that as well. The other possibility is the that you are not finalizing the disc once it's been burned. I've noticed that on Nero the defaults tend to favor multi-session discs and use "write at once" instead of "disc at once." So try using the disc at once feature or finalizing the disc to see if that helps. I know that some legacy drives have a hard time with multi-session discs still. I hope that helps. I know my Sony drives works great and I've been very happy with it.
