    Recommended DVD5 brand?

    Alright, thanks for the advice and links.

    Recommended DVD5 brand?

    What is the difference between the two links you provided? The second one is the "DataLifePLus" you mentioned, the first mentions Azo but no "DataLifePlus". I see a mention of the MKM dye on the first link, which I know from using the MKM-003 DVD9s Verbatim produces, is apparently what makes those discs top of the line. I presume this is the same case with both of those links you provided?

    Recommended DVD5 brand?

    I know Verbatim is the best for DVD9 and I assume they are the best for DVD5. What specific model number am I looking for and if they are not, who is the best (Newegg or Ebay bulk seller link preferred).

    Burning a DVD5 size DVD to DVD9 media.

    Is it still ok to burn without a MDS file though? How much data is stored on each layer of a DVD9?
  5. Yes, I realize I don't need a disc of that size for a DVD5, but all I have on me are DVD9s because it is what I need 99% of the time. Anyways, when I go to burn a DVD5 disc with DVD9 media, for some reason, IMGburn still presents to me layer break options, both when I calculate the size and when I go to start a burn (Usually, only one option for the layer break is available). Why is this the case? I remember the program just skipping any layer break stuff the first couple of times I did this, because the size of the file wouldn't require another data layer to be burned to. IMGburn even warned me about the file not being burned using the proper standards of the DVD spec or something of those lines (No, I can't produce a log of this because it has been overwritten since I made that burn.), yet the DVD played fine in my DVD drive at least (Didn't test in my DVD player yet). Should I be picking the "Ignore Layer Break" option in this situation? Would there even be any noticeable difference in choosing a "layer break" on a DVD5 size VIDEO_TS / ISO when burning to DVD9 media?
  6. You'd be better off building a new image using the 'create image file from files/folders' option and pointing it at the virtual drive. So basically, remount the original ISO, rip it using the "Create Image File From Files/Folders" option, then burn the newly created ISO using the newly created MDS? EDIT: Does it matter if I point the source to just the virtual drive or the VIDEO_TS folder specifically in the virtual drive?
  7. Hello all, I have a DVD9 ISO file that is missing the MDS file. I mounted the ISO with Daemon Tools Lite, then used IMGburns "Create Image File From Disc" option to create a new ISO file with a MDS file. I want to store this MDS file with the original ISO file I used to create the new ISO file, so I won't have to go through this process again. Will I be able to make a proper burn on DVD9 media if I use the MDS file from the newly created rip on the ISO file from the old rip?
  8. Since Verbatim has apparently discontinued their Singapore discs and they are now impossible to find on the web, which discs are now the best to use? I would also appreciate a link to where I can buy them (Newegg preferred).

    No longer Singapore?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1YH1GV3419 I always buy Verbatim DVD+R DL disks from that specific URL on Newegg. I was going to purchase a new spindle, however one of the reviews caught my attention. It mentioned that the disks were no longer manufactured in Singapore. I had bought these disks since 2011 because they were the Singapore manufactured ones. I do not want to purchase some that are not from Singapore, so if anyone has bought these disks FROM THIS SPECIFIC URL in the past few years and recently within 2014, can you please tell me if this is indeed the case?
  10. Just checked and all of the options under that heading are unticked. Even if I do manually change the progress bar I cannot see different parts of the video. The only major change I can think of that I did before this happened was turning off the desktop compositor.
  11. As the topic title states, I cannot get any video playback on the preview window when I go to see how my layer break will end up looking on the DVD. The Window just shows the very first part of the area of the DVD that it loads and just stays stuck there, although the audio will playback perfectly fine. I have not had this problem before and I changed nothing in IMGburn settings, so I don't know what to do here. The DVDs will be made fine, as I had this problem previously but thought it had to do with something else with some other DVDs I was burning, but now I know that is no longer the case.

  12. Hi, I just got done burning some Dual Layer DVDs. However, on the last one that I burned, I think I might have by accident hit "ignore layer break options" instead instead of hitting "Ok" to use the layer break that I selected. I'll post the log here to see if anyone can tell if that is the case or not. ; //****************************************\\ ; ImgBurn Version 2.5.7.0 - Log ; Wednesday, 16 January 2013, 00:49:10 ; \\****************************************// ; ; I 00:09:55 ImgBurn Version 2.5.7.0 started!

    Having trouble backing up a PS1 game

    Ok thanks. How about my other questions?
  14. Hello. I am trying to back up the PS1 game "MegaMan Legends 2". Unfortunately, this game is giving me a lot of problems trying to back it up. Here is the log.

Waited over 15 minutes on another try and still it is just stuck on that one message. I am trying to burn to .bin/.cue because I heard this is the best format to create backups with. Would another format work and be just as good? Also, MegaMan Legends 2 is apparently an audio cd according to Windows explorer and IMGburn. I heard that when you make a backup of an audio cd, the backup losses quality. However, what about the MASTER (aka actual physical cd used for the copying) cd? I don't want to keep trying to backup Legends 2 multiple times and end up damaging the quality of my cd. Would aborting reading the disc while it was at the "analyzing session 1 track 2..." damage the disc in any sort of way? So far this is the ONLY Playstation game that has giving me problems when trying to back it up. All others have worked fine so far.
  15. Oh ok. The discs are in Japanese format, but I always thought that the Japanese format and NTSC were the same in terms of speed and what not.
