It took forever to get to this point, but once I did it failed. What have I done wrong? The below is the event log:

Looks like ImgBurn wasn't able to read two sectors of the ISO file. This could be due to a corrupt download. Try downloading the file again. If you're using Windows 7, just right-click on the ISO file and select "Open with" -> "Windows Disc Image Burner". So much easier...

You also might want to try a DVD+/-R instead of an RW.

Thanks, Henry. I'm actually using Vista SP2. I'll try using Waula this time. I used the Firefox download manager and after re-reading the opening post, I think I may have goofed from the word go. I got a 4.4GB download and right clicking on the file didn't give me an option for burning or opening with a burner, so I used ImgBurn. I have DVD+/-R, as well. I was using the RW to get one good disc first so I didn't waste any discs. Are RW discs inherently bad for this utility? Thanks again for the suggestions. I will try tonight.

As far as the burning is concerned, you should be fine using an RW. The player might have issues with it, though. A DVD+/-R is a safer bet. ImgBurn is a great little program. Try it again with a newly downloaded file. Good luck!

I'm attempting a Wuala download now. Is it necessary to use the "Install CbFs for file system integration"? I just really dislike cluttering my computer with programs I may only use once, especially when it forces a reboot. I'll do it if I have to, but I'd like to avoid it if possible.

There's no reason to download again. The following indicates the download and decompression are fine.

The error probably came from one of these two items.

1) The media - This is most likely, so I'd suggest trying another DVD disc
2) The hardware - If multiple new discs fail, then try a different DVD burner

I just can't win. I tried again. I did a successful download of the AVHC from Wuala. I decompressed without a hitch, though I was not prompted to immediately create a disc. Seconds into burning with ImgBurn, it failed. The below is what I have in the error log. Someone please help. I just don't understand what I'm doing that is so horribly wrong. I am trying to follow the instruction to a tee, and it's not working for me.

This matches the first report, so the new download and decompression are probably good, but if you still have the first .iso I would use it because ImgBurn reported the MD5 and it was correct.

Quote:


Seconds into burning with ImgBurn, it failed.

Like commented previously, the most likely cause of issues is either a bad disc or an issue with the burner. The only other item would be software issues. Vista SP2 can burn a .iso by right-clicking on the file. There are more detailed instructions for burning a .iso with Windows at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/m.../dd451080.aspx If you do burn using Windows, I would suggest using the "Verify disc" option in ImgBurn to compare the disc with the .iso file. The reason I suggest checking the disc is because I don't think Windows would have reported any issues on the original burn.

To restate, here are your options:

1) Use a different burner
2) Use different software (see link)
3) Burn at a slower speed or try various DVD media

Thank you. I think I might have been successful on my 4th try with another DVD +RW disc, but I'm worried the RW won't work. It's actually going through verification right now after ejecting the tray and asking me to re-insert, which I have done. To be successful, must I do this on a DVD+R media and does it appear I may be on to something?

Many thanks to Alluring Reality on many fronts.

I successfully burned a DVD+RW last night. It verified the disc with a perfect match on Device and Image MDF. Then, I confirmed the player, a Playstation 3, ran it just fine. I cycled through the menus without a hitch.

I then tried burning on 2 more DVD+R discs, and consistently failed at the 4%-6% mark. The last two I manually set to burn at 4X as that was successful on the DVD+RW. There is a difference. Both are Memorex and of course size is the same. However, the RW one is rated at 4X or 8X- can't remember which. The DVD+R is rated at 16X- that I know for certain. Can anyone recommend a DVD+R that worked for them? I've already bricked 3 DVD+R discs and I don't want to ruin them all. Obviously the download is complete and the burner did work once. Is there a formatting trick anyone has used or something that might help me get a DVD+R so I don't have to worry about compatibility?

Thanks,

Tom

Hmmm, honestly with DVD burners being so cheap these days you might benefit more from getting a new one and not having to worry about coasters or media brand.

I always go with Taiyo Yuden. Not the easiest brand to find, and sometimes counterfeited. But they are a very good brand. Otherwise I would look for made in Japan on the label. This is where the many of the best DVD plants are located.

If you get Taiyo Yuden and your burns still fail you probably have a problem with your computer.

I've thought about it, but I really don't burn DVD's very often and it's a notebook computer, so I know Dell would rape me on the price. I've never used an external burner with a laptop. Do any of you know whether or not that might be worth it?

That complicates things a bit. You could check your notebook's dell page for DVD unit firmware upgrades.

Thank you. I hadn't thought of that, so I tried it last night. No upgrades through Dell. The test came back as "device and drivers up to date". Any other suggestions? I'm a bit mystified why I cannot get a successful burn on a DVD+R disc. It's likely user error. When it comes to computers, I see myself as the lowest denominator as a general rule. My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1500. Not a powerful machine by any means and about 2-3 years old. I would think I should be able to do this, though. Aside from internet, iTunes, and office, along with an occasional burn, I don't do much else with it- unless we're going to count yelling at it.

External USB DVD/CD burners are not expensive. Look here:http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...usb+dvd+burner

Might want to look up your notebook by model in dell's support site and check for FW updates manually instead just in case they don't list them as driver updates. Then again, like they said above, external units aren't that expensive.

These test patterns are menu driven and need to be played on your Blu-ray device (standalone and/or HTPC) to your directly connected monitor, via Blu-ray or DVD media (mounting the ISO file can also be done).

Generally the idea is to play the video in a similar manner to what you would do when you are watching other content. If you usually stream video or use a hard drive for playing video, the MP4 version is just video files.

tjacks84 -- In looking through your session list, I noticed that you used the "Max" recording speed. That is your mistake. When burning DVDs, like this, you should set your "Burn Speed" to 4x, or at most, 8x. I have found that with video files, using a higher burn speeds usually results in failure (non-working discs). Also, DVD-R discs work better than DVD+R.

The burn-speed can be set in the ImgBurn "options".

That may be your experience, it certainly isn't mine. DVDs containing formatted data for playing in a computer, or standalone DVD/Blu-ray player is no different than DVDs/Bu-rays that contain non DVD-Video formatted files. It is all just bits burned into the medium.

I use x16 DVD media and burn at x16, with no coasters. I've not had an authored DVD (which I don't do these days) not play. I burn x4 Blu-ray media at x10 and I've not had one of them not play (6 different standalone players so far). The x10 speed is what the burner will do and burner won't burn at a speed that the media doesn't like.

I've also burned hundreds of DVD-ROMs of images that I've photographed and not one person has asked for a replacement copy in 5 years. These are full DVDs.

I downloaded the HDMV-2d.exe file and extracted it, twice. Both times it said "the file is broken" as an error at the end. Still makes an ISO, but it's something around 3.5GB. Is this ok?

No. I don't know the correct size at the moment, but it is a full disc.

thanks. I grabbed the 7z file instead and it worked. The EXE is truncated somehow.
