Thread: My CD burns always seem to mess up

  1. #1
    Would anyone know why when I burn off my CDs e.g a film of 700mb thier always currupt as in when i watch the film it says cant read sourse from disk?
    or something like that.

    Even when I try to copy the data to the desktop I get the error so i have to skip a little past the messed up part to watch the rest of the film but there can be more that one part thats fooked...its a real pain in the ass and driving me crazy!

    Im using the latest version Nero on XP Pro, Using a 52 speed writer (Not DVD burner) I just thought I would say use I use the CD brand "Data write" as all other brands will not write over the speed of 4 speed because if I do my writer makes some funky noises and makes Nero error, wheater this has a link I dont know.

    So hope you guys have an answer...cheers

    I am just guessing
    but when you download a movie it sometimes makes glitches - which i am certain you have seen (square blocks) - i am guessing that it is these glitches whichj are causing the rror in nero (even if you zip it)
    you could try to burn it really slowly 4X
    or better in virtual dub - search for errors and rerender it it then burn

    smarter people will hopefully reply hereafter.

    no youll get the same glitches whether its dwnldn dvd,screenrs,cams etc its about
    -how the person who rendered the movie originally did it
    -glitches while downloading (no the internet is not perfect)
    z-if your screwing around while burning or rendering

    I C..but Ive never heard of people getting this problem as much as me from just downloading, Im getting this on like 70% of the stuff i burn surely this has to be some kind of hardware problem

    What Brand of CDs are you using..??
    I have trouble with "Imation" CDs..I'm lucky if me CD Drive can even see them...when they do I copy all files onto HD & burn on one of my CDs.

    try updating the firmware for your cd writer. often manufacturers rush out drives that dont work properly with new media and end up having to fix it in software later.

    check first....get latest codecs

    possible problem...burner on its way out or needs cleaning
    if you burn a lot of disks...life span of burner could be short
    (I had to replace mine at 2 years)

    borrow a rewritable disk...if it works...then it is your brand of disks
    at this point, it could just be overuse and you could get away with
    cleaning...dust hardens on unit and acts like sandpaper, it will
    cause glitches.

    99% has a good point, glitch will also occur if you are trying to do
    other stuff at the same time you are burning.

    if a disk of a movie worked (that you burned 6 months ago) now
    stops working on your machine, it is a good indicator that it is time
    to clean or replace burner.(also you could take that disk and see if it plays
    on another pc),

    keep us updated, as to your status with the problem.
    hope this is helpful.

    it is the small things that usually drive us mad

    I have the latest Nero I think I said that in my first post...oh and cant find anything better sofware wise for the dive.

    As for Kazaa2002 I will go through some of the stuff that I havent done yet what u suggested.

    To be fair Ive had this writer for like 2 years now so I might just stop being tight and by my arse a dvd writer...finally
