Hi, I'm new here.

 I use DVD Cloner 2015..I'm getting 2017 today.

 So... I save the DVD copy as an ISO to my hard drive, Then use I,B, to write the files to a disc. I also use verify.

 Some times it works and the disc is readable/playable and sometimes not..I'm not sure how to post the image of the log file so please excuse the notepad version:

;___________________________________________---

 I do have the latest I.B. version installed.

 Sometimes the ISO copies/writes perfectly and sometimes not.

 This particular disc,after burn, shows the title but does not play in any of the three vid players: Media Center,Media Player and the Classic one.The play button just causes the "wait" circle to spin,and spin and spin....

 I use an external DVD player,(Drive 2 ). The one in the laptop does not work.These are old units also, I realize that but they are all I have.

 Anyone have any ideas what is up? At .25 cents per disc I'm not too worried about  a few fails but this is the about the 5th time for that ISO file, I have deleted the ISO and rerun DCloner three times and no joy. I use the expert interface and 9->5 sizing, full movie copy (subtitles/dubbed).

 Any thoughts are welcome.

The first debugging step I'd take is to stop using the cheap CMC Magnetics discs.

 

 

I 08:29:20 Destination Media Type: DVD+R (Disc ID: CMC MAG-M01-00)

 

 

CMC Magnetics is the worst manufacturer of optical discs out there.  Half the time they fail to burn.  Half of those fail to Verify.  And half of those that do pass both steps fail to play in DVD players.

 

 

Try Verbatim DataLife Plus discs you can only find online.  Do NOT get Verbatim Life series DVD's from brick and mortar stores.  They will be CMC's.

 

 

As for posting a Notepad version of the log, GET OUT!  Just kidding.  =))   I prefer the ability to see the log as text, anyway, versus an image posted or attached to a post.  So, I'd guess others might prefer it that way, too.

This is a new stack of the CMC,s so I'll burn through them to see if anything takes.When I get home I'll look at the wrapper to see if the manf. is listed. Thanx for the advice on a different disc type.

Is there a longevity issue with the CMCs? I mean these are movies. I really don't plan on watching them but once a year or so.

The wrapper will not tell you the Disc ID, which is the actual manufacturer who made it.  Companies don't want you to know this information because if you knew, you might not buy their cheap media masquerading as something else.  The only way to tell the actual manufacturer is to put a disc in a drive, open ImgBurn in Write or Read mode, and check for the Disc ID/Manufacturer field in the right pane of information.

 

 

Oh, man, the issues with CMC media... There are longevity issues with them.  Sometimes they last for a while.  Sometimes they're unreadable after a year.  There's reflectivity issues with them, which causes playback problems with DVD players.  They may be unable to recognize a CMC disc has been inserted.  CMC Lightscribe DVD+R would not be recognized in the DVD player my mother had.  The primary issue with CMC media is their general low quality, which causes them to fail to finish burning or fail to pass Verify. 

 

 

Most of the problems on this board are caused by cheap CMC media.  Most people find their problems miraculously disappear when they stop using CMC discs.  It's not always the case, of course, but it is the case in the majority of issues.

Ok, thnx again for the info. I'll look up the ones you suggested. I guess the other question I would have is that the ISO file is ok. Though this is not a DCloner forum. If i download an ISO player and the file works then it is the CMCs.

If you want to check that the ISO is fine, you can install Virtual CloneDrive, mount the ISO, and then play its contents in your preferred DVD software player.  However, be aware that computers are more forgiving than a stand alone DVD player.  So, what may play on your PC may not play in a stand alone DVD player.

 

 

However, since you say some discs play and some don't, you can probably rule out the ISO files.  That seems more indicative of the CMC discs.  I had several cake stacks of Optodisc DVD-R before I learned about CMC.  They were stacks of 200 discs.  About half would burn, verify, and play.  Half wouldn't complete a burn.  That just goes to show the varying quality of CMC within the same cake stack.

If it burnt and verified ok, it should at least be readable / playable in that same pc / drive.

So I'd say it must be an issue with your encoding/authoring software.

Why don't you try something besides what you're using now? Try CloneDVD from Elaborate Bytes.

Playback wise, media player classic home cinema or black edition should work fine. As should Videolan's VLC.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

To check on LUK's possibility, try inserting one of these DVD+R's that don't play properly in a PC drive and open ImgBurn in Read mode.  Try reading this disc to an image file.  If it reads without error, then the problem is probably either in the player or the software that created the DVD to begin with.  If there are read errors, then the disc itself is unreadable or the drive you inserted it in doesn't like those CMC discs.

 

 

It is possible, but don't ask me HOW, that a disc can pass Write, pass Verify, but be unreadable.  I just had one such disc earlier in the week.  I burned a disc to a DVD+RW that passed Write and Verify, but the Playstation 3 would not recognize it was inserted.  Inserting it in a PC drive just caused the drive's light to flash infinitely trying to read it.  So, the disc was actually unreadable.

 

 

I still can't fathom how a disc can pass Write, pass Verify, but be unreadable.  :unsure:
