Burnt DVD doesnt work

Postby EazyDuz » Fri Jan 07, 2011 7:09 pm

Hi,
Im having trouble with convertxtodvd.
It will encode just fine, and it will burn just fine. The problem is it wont play. On the computer if i view the files on the disc it just has the video_ts and audio folder on the disc. It wont play on my PS3 either. Never had this issue before, but it is on a new laptop.
Can anyone help?

2011-01-07 18:50:32 Info BURN: Media ID: CMC MAG. AM3


First, the Media ID is CMC MAG, which is a poor quality media and many players will not play it. The best DVD-5 media is JVC/Taiyo Yuden, with Verbatim likely second best (as long as they aren't the ones made in India - which would likely have a media ID starting with MBI.

Second, when viewing the folders on your computer, open the video_ts folder that's in you and double-click the video_ts.ifo file and it should open in your default video viewing software. If it works then the encoding and burn went fine and it's likely just that you're using crap media.

Log is missing location.
Conversion is to PAL so it will not work in USA, Japan or any other NTSC using country.

Hmm this is weird. I clicked the ifo file like you said on disc. The DVD menu loaded on GOM player and worked. But when i clicked play, the starting image of the movie showed, as did sound, but the video didnt play. If i clicked on different times of the film (10 mins into it etc) the image will change to a different part of the film but it stays static and wont play.
It was an MP4 movie compared to AVI which i normally have, could that have anything to do with it?
Also, ive burnt many DVDs with the blank ones i am using and they have all worked fine. Which leads me to believe the problem is either:

1. It for some reason cant convert Mp4 to run properly
2. For some reason i just cant burn DVDs on my new laptop (old laptop could with lower spec).

Help?

One reason certain discs are called crappy is because their manufacture is inconsistant, and while one batch will work another will cause problems, and that can even happen with some discs in the same batch. So that could be why similar discs worked before.

Another reason is that various computer DVD burners/drives and DVD players can be pickier about being able to properly burn, read and/or play poor quality discs. So your laptop and DVD players just might not like these discs. PS3 is even pickier and sometimes won't even play good quality discs.

ConvertX can convert MP4 files just fine, so that isn't the issue. Have you tried playing the discs in a real standalone DVD player?

Maybe the file is corrupt. I can watch the whole movie just fine on GOM player. Tried to convert it to AVI with Hamster but it would only convert 1 second worth. Tried to convert an Avi movie and it was converting properly.

Very confusing, i doubt its the discs to be honest ive used them for months and they have all worked fine.

I'll agree with the possibility of a corrupt input video. Software players are often very forgiving of header errors and other problems with bad vids.

But it doesn't change the fact that you're using crappy media. :-)

Crappy media could be the reason. I never delete a conversion untill I watch all the movie. Most errors come from the media (mostly with double layer). It is not uncommon to find a couple of "costers" in a spindle of poor quality media.

If conversion result can be watched with software player before burning then conversion was ok.
In this case it seems to be faulty file, but as others are saying, crappy media.
I once had to buy Maxell from Best-Buy and they were CMC MAG.
Burning 2x I got half of those to work on DVD player. Burning 4x produced choppy and jerky result, totally unwatchable.
Same system with MCC or other better media burns 4x with no problems.

Also can anyone explain why its taking longer to burn at 4x than it does for 2x? Makes no sense whatsoever...

Your burn speed was not even 2x:
2011-01-07 18:55:49 Info BURN: Write finished in 00:05:14 - Finalization start here. Avg. burn rate 1.81


Your system can't handle burning faster. Turn off all other programs.

Hmm that seems quite bad. Laptop specs are:

AMD P320 Dual Core 2.1ghz
3 gig RAM
Windows 7 home 64 bit
3.6 windows experience index.

Is that low for DVD burning? To be fair i normally have firefox running when burning, and Norton 360 which is always on.
Multiple tabs open on firefox though

No, there is nothing about your system specs that would indicate anything that would make burning slow. The problem could be that you need to update the firmware of your burner. More importantly, you should deactivate internal system scanning of anti-virus software when burning as it can both slow down system operations and possibly cause burn errors. The safest method to ensure a clean burn is to close all other programs and not use the computer when burning.

And, of course, burning to good quality media is a good idea. :-)

Your system should be ok to burn. Most likely it burns just fine to good media.
Bad media causes various problems, and usually slows burning down to crawl as burner is trying to get decent burns.

Ended up just putting the mp4 file straight onto ps3 harddrive. Works and looks fine.
Cant get firmware for my dvd burner. It doesnt appear to have any updates.

Fake brands, crap media can often "confuse" DVD writers so they will usually default to the slowest speed.

I remember buying a spindle of Proformance DVD's which were over rated, so I had quite a few costers before I realized what was happening and reduced the burning speed.

As stated above: If you can play you conversion from the VIDEO_TS folder, then you should have no problems with the burning.
