I have a question for anyone who might know on the board.


I've duped some home video's to dvd-r with an older model

Panasonic stand alone recorder. I was previously able to dupe

a back up copy using a Pioneer A04 dvd burner. No problem.

Fine back up dupe.


I have tried the new Pioneer A06 burner and it will "Not" let me back up these same dvd-r's that I could with the A04.

I get an error message that says it will only copy the first track.


I've tried both the supplied Nero software and an older Nero 5.0 but same

results.


My question is why would the older A04 burn the dupes just fine.

What has Pioneer changed?


Will the current Sony DVD-R burner work for me?


Thanks for the help.

Look on DVDrhelp site and download DVD decrypter. That will allow you to make an ISO of the DVD-R and then back it up to another DVD-R.

bigjazzfan,


The Issue Is Probably Not The Drive...


Which Operating System Are You Using? I Know That Some Software Conflicts With The XP's Enable "CD-Write" Function On Some Drives.


Which OS Were You Under When You Were Using The A04?


Is It Stopping After The "Lead-in", Or Is It Ejecting After Completeing The First Track?

Boyd,


I'm using Win 2000.


I was using the same pc and Win 2000 with the A04 and it

worked fine. Now with the A06 it won't dupe the same dvd-r made

on the Panasonic E30.


I've done more testing.

It will dupe a dvd-r made on the Pioneer 7000 with the A06.

No problems.


I also downloaded DVD Xcopy Express trial version and it will

dupe the E30 DVD-R fine. But then you have a message that says

this is a back up copy, etc. at the start of the copy. This is put on by

the DVD Xcopy software. I don't want to have this on my own

family video's I've put on dvd-r.


As for what is happening on the attemps to dupe with Nero,

I get a error message that says it can only dupe the first track.

And then it basically quits. Again the Pioneer 7000 dvd-r burns

fine.


I have discs duped to other Panasonic DVD recorders and the new

Sony DVD recorder. They will also not dupe with the A06 burner.

Only the dvd-r's made on the Pioneer 7000 with dupe.


I didn't pay much attention to how these stand alone recorders set the copyguard flag. But it seems they are putting a flag on my original dvd-r

that I burn from my family home video's and now this current burner

it treating it like it's a Hollywood commercial DVD. And the A06 won't let me

dupe it.


This is a bit irritating to say the least.

The A04 worked just great but not the A06.


Is anyone using the A05 or A06 and not having this trouble?

Do you use Nero?


Thanks, bigjazzfan

bigjazzfan,


I Have Several A05 Drives.

I Run XP And Stopped Using Nero A While Back.

Although, My Discs Are Custom Tweaks Of The MPEGs, So The Errors That I Have Are Usually Do To The Constant Varying Bit Rate.


A Decryptor Should Give You A Hand, As It Does Re-Map The .vobs As The End Result...


Are You Burning The VIDEO_TS Folder To The DVD As "Data Disc"?

Do You Have All Your ATAPI Controllers Set To "DMA, If Available"? (Control Panel->System-> Hardware->Device Manager)
