Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).

Make sure you treat your blank CD-R's with respect.
Scratches or dust may cause write errors! Handle the disc carefully when transferring it to the CD drive! DMA & Auto Insert Notification (AIN)
DMA does not allow the CPU to have full control of the Writer, thus causing Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run Errors. Auto Insert Notification causes a CD Disc to autorun. This causes problems when you use the Writer as the Reader & as the Writer. Rule of Thumb, always uncheck Auto Insert Notification and DMA To disable AIN with MP3 CD Burner, simply go into the Preferences and uncheck 7q Auto Insert Notification7q You will have to reboot. Media
Non-Branded media/No Name media is generally lower quality and are commonly referred to as Seconds or "B" grade. This type of media will cause errors when writing, especially on the outer part of the disc (500 MB or better) where the dye becomes thinner. This can also cause playback problems. Close all Programs prior to Writing
Using CTRL+ALT+DEL will allow you to access the Close Program window. The only programs that should be running while Writing are EXPLORER, NTI Software & SYSTRAY if you must. TSRs will steal CPU time away from the Writer, which may cause Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run errors. Screen Savers & Virus Checkers
These programs should have been closed in step #3. Screen Savers, Virus Checkers, Crash Guards and Uninstallers will intercept commands and steal CPU time away from the Writer, which may cause Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run errors. (Screen savers are automatically disabled during a burn with CD Burner.) Power Management
Power management is a program that shuts down the Hard Drive and turns off the computer's monitor to save energy. These actions may cause Lock-ups and Buffer Under Run errors if they happen during the writing process. It is highly recommended to turn off Power Management in both the Control panel and in the computer's BIOS. (Power management is automatically disabled during a burn with CD Burner.) Defragging the Hard Drive
It is recommended to Defrag the Hard Drive prior to writing a CD. If the Hard Drive is fragmented, it will cause the Hard Drive's access time to diminish. A slower access time may cause Buffer Under Run errors due to the extra time it takes the Hard Drive to send the data to the Writer. Disc Compression
Compressed Hard Drives (Double Spaced) will cause the access time to diminish. A slower access time may cause Buffer Under Run errors due to the extra time it takes to uncompress the data and send it to the Writer. Latest Writing Software
A lot of little problems are solved by upgrading to the latest Writing software. Updates have patches to fix bugs and known writing problems. It is highly recommended to always use the latest software available. Viruses
There is always a possibility of a Virus being on your system causing weird problems. Running a Virus scan on the computer will verify a clean system. Make sure you have the most current virus definitions installed in your Virus program. In addition, don't forget to turn off the Virus program prior to writing.
Reboot / Restart
If the computer has been on for a while, reboot (restart) the computer prior to writing. Multiple Writing Software Programs
Having multiple writing software on your systems (Adaptec, Nero, Prassi, Veritas, etc.) are known to cause system lock-ups. This is due to each writing software modifying the same files "winaspi.dll, wnaspi32.dll, and apix.vxd" and then not being compatible with each other. This normally is the case on older operating systems (Windows 95/98/NT). In newer operating systems, writing software's have their own ASPI layer, however more than two writing software are also know to cause lock-ups. Log file says "*** Found DLL's for WinOnCD!!!"
There are known conflicts between WinOnCD and our MP3 CD Burner software on some Windows installations. If you are having burning problems, and your log file says "*** Found DLL's for WinOnCD!!!" you may choose to uninstall WinOnCD via the Add/Remove Control panel. Alternatively, you can go into your "WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS" directory and rename the following files:

  • from C2APIX.VXD - to C2APIX.BAK
  • from C2REC.VXD - to C2REC.BAK
Restart Windows and try the software again. If it doesn't make a difference and you want to continue using WinOnCD, you should restore the 2 files to their original names. Bus Mastering Driver Conflicts
They cause intermittent lock-ups and static on audio files. Most Bus Mastering drivers are not compliant with any Writer, Tape Back-up, etc. Uninstalling the Bus Mastering drivers will fix a lot of writing problems. (Manufactures: ALI, VIA, SYS, Intel, CMD, OPTI, TYAN, AMD) This is only for the technically experienced. Most people reading this should have an experienced Windows technician check this out. More on this in the McFadden FAQ . Latest Firmware
A lot of little problems are solved by Flashing the Writer to the latest firmware available. Updated Firmware has patches to fix bugs and known writing problems. It is highly recommended to always use the latest Firmware available. Dual Boot Systems
Multiple Operating Systems are known problems with Writers. Trying the Writer on a Single Operating System is an easy way to confirm this problem. We do not recommend or support Dual Boot/Multiple Operating Systems due to known problems. CD-ROM Dos Drivers
Computers that load the CD-ROM DOS driver (16 bit) in the Config.sys file and the Microsoft extensions (MSCDEX.EXE) in the Autoexec.bat file, may/will cause conflicts with the Windows drivers. It is highly recommended to remove these lines from the above-mentioned files. Symptoms would include Lock-ups, Buffer Underruns, Intermittent errors, and Yellow Exclamation points on the Primary or Secondary IDE ports. Startup programs are slowing down computer
The solution is to disable startup programs. Warning! If you aren't sure what you are doing, proceed with caution! Click Window's Start button, followed by clicking "Run". Type ""msconfig"" without the quotes followed by clicking "OK". Click on the "General" tab, followed by un-checking "Load Startup Group Items". Click "Apply" and then "OK". You will need to restart. (Note that some startup items might be necessary to run your computer peripherals. This is a good test to see if a start up program is slowing your computer down, though.) If you need to re-enable Startup programs, repeat the instruction above, except make sure to check the "Load Startup Group Items"

Which disc can be used to recrord on ?


According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:

RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING

DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

NOTES:
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.

PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY

DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

I am trying to burn using Pioneer DVR-110 DVD RW its starts to burn then after 1 or 2 min it stop and says cannot burn why is that what can i do to fix it please???


You can try and clean the lazer and the 2 chrome rails that the lazer moves along as it reads the disk.To clean the lazer use get some Isopropanol from your local chemist.Use a cotton bud NOT SOAKED with a small amount of Isopropanol and gently clean the glass using a circular motion and and polish with a clean and dry cotton bud.To clean the rails use special fine machine oil. Do not use WD40 as it contains water.Hope this helps you.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Burning Error - TEAC DW-28E


julia_roehl --

Couple items...

#1 - Buy good media, the lower the quality the more chance for error (slightly imperfect thickness = vibrations during burning, etc)

#2 - Try lowering your burn speed to 2.4x, seems to add to odds of being read by better machines

#3 - I'm sure you have tried, but have you cleaned your optics lately?
Using a Q-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol, and GENTLY rotate the swab across the lens, rotating it in the opposite direction you are wiping. This should "lift" any dust or grime from the lens. I would also clean the tray with a soft lint-free cloth (using an air-can just moves the dirt around, doesn't solve the problem)


Hope this helps!

If you have further issues, comment to this thread and I will be happy to assist you!

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record


You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Burning Mp4 files to DVD


Hi Peter ,
              You are confusing the amount of recording time stated (200 mins) with the disk blurb (I like that word blurb...lol.. ) with the actual amount of data you are trying to burn to the DVD !
                                                                         If your MP4 movie is super high quality or high definition and is 4.7 Gigabytes and 20 minutes long , your DVD-R will only store that amount of data and no more.
                         The capacity of most DVD-R's is about 4.7 Gigabytes or 120 minutes ?  it might say it can store 200 minutes , but this is only a guide and depends entirely on what quality the movie is and what compression technique was used to produce the mp4.
                            If this isnt the case and you are sure its no more than 4.7GB and your still having trouble burning over 20 minutes of video, the drive could be faulty or the software your using to burn the DVD -R isnt set up correctly , you need a very big hard drive to burn DVD's (I suggest at least 160 GB ) and as much RAM memory as you can afford to put in your computer.
                                                                                        You need this to cache (or temporarily store) the movie  file and the software has to be set up properly to use a large cache.Not all DVD-R's do what they say on the case , most say they burn at 16X but ive yet to find a DVD-R that will burn every time and do a good job of it at 16X,I have to lower the burn speed to 8X or lower to get good consistent results...some cheap brands will burn in some drives and not others and buying really cheap DVD -R's  is false economy you end up with lots of cheap drinks coasters...or other drives will not read the data you have recorded..
hope this has helped you Peter ..

DVD copying


There are double layer DVD's that they make which usually have about 2x the memory. check to see if your DVD recorder supports these types of DVD's. You could also just divide your media on to two sides of a double sided DVD (each side has the mirror look and you can record onto both sides)(still the same disc) or you could record on to multiple DVD's (may be inconvenient but is still an option). Also, you could reduce the recording quality just a bit so that it is not noticable when you watch it but it still uses less space on the disk. I would tell you how to do these things but I have no experience with the individual model that you have.
