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.
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.
