    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    I wouldn't trust CMC as far as I could throw their corporate headquarters. You only get 1 chance to make a good impression. And they have, for over a decade, made a bad impression. To be even more shady, CMC just happens to be an arrangement of the letters of the good DataLife Plus stuff. The good stuff will be labeled as MCC for Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation. The only JVC media I've tried in the last few years were BD-RE, and they were CMC.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    @dbminter You were right. The Verbatims are CMC F3, and these are the shiny ones not the branded Life Series. You think it's true that CMC polished up their act, and are putting out good media? I haven't had any issues at all. Some are Ritek as I posted, and then some say CMC F3. I would have to experiment with a pack of Data Life Series and see what they brand out to. So what media is really good these days? Are the JVCs really CMC Mags?

    Verify OK, but bad burn - huh?

    That doesn't negate the fact that you're using cheap crappy blanks. Just because it burns the disc, doesn't mean it did a good job at it and that the end result will be readable. Use better quality blanks Verstuurd vanaf mijn Nexus 6P met Tapatalk
  6. dbminter: I appreciate the additional help, however, that info is way past the zenith of my understanding of all of this. All I know is, your suggestion has solved my problem to my satisfaction. As stated, although the resulting DVD isn't quite as good as the resolution I get when burning a Blu-Ray, it is superior to what a standard DVD resolution is. With the added bonus that ConvertXtoDVD is an all in one converter and burner. No more using one program to convert the video file, then switching to a different program to burn the DVD. The only thing I wish ConvertXtoDVD had was a more comprehensive help manual to explain each setting in more detail so that I can fine tune what I want the end result to me. Thanks again.

    no, support. Drive burn ok disks

  9. If your DVD/BD player upscales DVD video output, it will look much better than if it didn't have upscaling. So, while converting to DVD would result in resolution loss, upscaling probably makes up for some of that.
  10. Thanks to all that replied. A solution has been found! Thanks to dminter's suggestion, I downloaded the ConvertXtoDVD program and set the Output Resolution to Automatic (Based on input resolution) and not only did ConvertXtoDVD do the conversion but burned the disc to a DVD in one easy step. The resulting DVD disc played on my Desktop PC AS WELL AS both my DVD player and my Blu-Ray player with no issues. The resulting video quality, although not quite as good as the video's I burn to run on my Blu-Ray player, is far better than the relatively low resolution that a normal DVD video image has. I'm ecstatic! So again a special thanks to dminter.
  11. Yeah, I was wondering if he might need to create a Blu-Ray video disc to keep such a resolution.

    Burned DVD works on PC not standalone DVD player

    DVD Video resolution is 720 x 480 NTSC or 720 x 576 PAL. If you want to maintain the 'HD 1080p' quality of your file, don't burn it as a DVD Video disc.
  13. Some DVD/BD players do play MP4 files, like the Playstation 3. It depends on if the player was designed to natively support them, which the device's instruction manual will say so or not. Or you can do tests and see if they will play MP4/AVI on your own, but you should use rewritable media for that. DVD Video is contained in a folder called VIDEO_TS which contains .IFO control files and .VOB files, which are the actual audio and video files (VideoOBject). ConvertXToDVD will convert container files to VIDEO_TS compliant folders and files that you can import the VIDEO_TS folder into ImgBurn's Build mode with. ImgBurn will set all the necessary options for DVD Video compliance by itself. Keep in mind ConvertXToDVD will generate its own proprietary menus but there are several menu types to choose from and, for the adventurous, you can edit the menus to fit your own design. I've never done that as I find the standard menus are fine for me, but it's an option. As for resolution on DVD, the resolution in the container file is unimportant, I think. For DVD, resolution only exists, as far as I know, in standard screen (full screen) and widescreen (16x9). If you want better resolution controls, I don't know what to say except that ConvertXToHD by the same company as ConvertXToDVD may be what you need, but that only creates Blu-Ray discs. You can contact them to see which option is better for you to try out and if they can tell if there's a way to preserve the video resolution. ConvertXtoDVD has a free 7 day trial function which is uncrippled except for watermarks on video output, I think. You can try it out for yourself and see if it creates something you'd be happy with before buying it.
  14. Thanks for the followup. I have used WinX HD converter to convert the AVI file to MP4 but since that didn't work, I was told that MP4 is a container file and DVD nor Blu Ray players play that. So does ConvertXToDVD use some other process to get the ultimately created file (whether starting with AVI or any other file type) and get the resulting file when burned to a DVD will play in the DVD or Blu Ray player? Keep in mind, I want to keep the same 1920X1080 resolution that the originally created file was created with.
  15. Well, first, does your DVD player support playing AVI file from a disc? Have you done this before and the DVD player played the disc? If your DVD player doesn't support playing back AVI files natively, then, you cannot do what you did and get a playable DVD. You cannot just drag and drop an AVI to a disc for burning and get a DVD player to play it unless your DVD player natively supports AVI file types. If your DVD player does not support AVI playback, you'll need a DVD conversion software like ConvertXToDVD, which is what I use. If you have successfully created DVD's with AVI's on them that your DVD player has played in the past, then, post the log of the burn where you wrote this AVI to disc. I'd need to see more detail.
  16. I have a video editing program that allows me to make home movies of pictures I've taken of the family. Once the high-resolution (1920x1080) AVI video file is saved. I drag it to Imgburn and select "Write files/folders to disc" and then start the burning process on a new DVD+R disc. The resulting DVD plays just fine, with excellent video quality, on the desktop computer's DVD player, however, the disc will not play in my standalone DVD player connected to my Smart TV nor my portable DVD player. These DVD players say the DVD disc isn't compatible. I've noticed several settings under both the Options tab and the Advanced tab but have not tried changing any of them. Are there some settings that I need to change so that the DVD disc will play on the standalone DVD players as well as the computer's DVD player? BD

    How to Open MDS file?

    Thanks. Appreciate it.

    What is the Volume Set Identifier?

    Yeah, I once asked what this was. And, I also commented that it appears to be random. Check out the answer here: Click on the title of the post in the embed above to open the original thread.

    How to Open MDS file?

    Yeah, I think .MDS files are binary files, which means you won't be able to get much "English" sense out of viewing the contents. Hence why they can't be opened in a text editor. They only function with a dedicated application that can read them, like Daemon Tools or ImgBurn.

    Use daemon tools. It's a proprietary format. Verstuurd vanaf mijn Nexus 6P met Tapatalk

    How do I read MDS files? Unlike .DVD files, I can’t just open it when notepad.

    What is the Volume Set Identifier? It seems to be a random string of letters and numbers.

    Trying to burn files in a chosen order

    dbminter, Yep that one I got at the start of my efforts, but I wanted to only have the song titles being displayed.....just trying to make it do what I wanted!! ....but all good now....Thanks again!!

    Trying to burn files in a chosen order

    BTW, if you wanted to make a data CD with the tracks in a particular order or an MP3 CD with another application, what you do is you add numbers to the start of each MP3's file name. For instance 01 - First File.MP3, 02 - Second File.MP3, etc. Oh, wait, I think Cholla just said that as part of that previous reply.

    Any way to make this POS media work?

    The only thing I can think of trying, though it probably won't matter in this case, is use one of these discs where you haven't tried Test mode on it, if you haven't already tried it. As I said, I doubt it will make a difference, but that's about my only advice. I've never heard of this media, so, as you say, you'll probably just need MCC/Verbatim/DataLife Plus/AZO CD-R. Sometimes, Test mode actually can render a disc as partially "written."

    Trying to burn files in a chosen order

    I'm a little late for helping but thought I would include what I had worked on for this. It might help someone searching. For a data CD this part is the same. You need to setup the music files numerically to keep them in order. ( This is my test mix for ImgBurn . Of course leave out the .CUE file) If they were all .MP3 files you could put 7 or 8 complete CDs on a CD -R. Providing your player will play a data disc. If you want an Audio CD the numeric order is still the same but you need to create a .cue file. This is the one I created from the files above: This is the burned Audio CD in WinAmp: As you can see the original order was kept.
