All Create Layer Break Positions The Same

Recommended Posts

In IMG Burn, when I get to Create Layer Break Position I get 21 suggested layer breaks and all are with the silver star (

Average). How do I know which one to pick? Can I use the Padding or % info to pick one?

 

I burned a dual layer disc yesterday and selected a arbitrary position from the 21 average listed and even though there were no errors, retrys, etc., with a successful recording message, when I played the DVD it had slow, stuttering playback for about 2-3 minutes after about 30 minutes, then the movie continued perfectly with no problems.

 

Usually I get one of the stars and select the best one - never have had a problem before. Any help suggestions would be appreciated.

Use the Preview button, young padawan, and select the layerbreak where a small pause would be less noticeable (fade-in/out/scene change/etc). Also some players like better when the % is near 50/50 value.

Make sure you are using good media. We recommend Verbatim, +R, 2.4x, MKM-001-00, Made in Singapore.

 

Do a scan of your burn and see if there are any abnormal spikes.

How do I Do a scan of your burn and see if there are any abnormal spikes?

 

I'm using Verbatim DL, recording at 2.4X. Not sure if made in Singapore. How do I determine that? I've normally not had any problems when there is a layer break to chose from that Good or better. It seems is happened when all the breaks were noted as Average. Many of them had 50%, I wish I remembered which one I selected, but I might have selected one that had the highest LBA numbers listed.

Does this provide any insight?

 

I took a look again. I have Verbatim for normal DVD's, but Memorex for the DL disc - sorry about that. That could be contributing to the problem based on what you said, however I've recorded on it before many times with no problem. So could having selected a less than adequate layer break - could that have contributed to the problem?

 

 

23:30:08 Using Layer Break LBA: 649343 -> 2056592 (VTS_01, PGC: 1, Chapter: 10, Cell: 10, Vob/Cell ID: 3/10, Time: 00:29:49, SPLIP: Yes -> No)

Please post the whole log from that burn session as it has other important information that we could use.

Memorex DL discs are rubbish compared to the Verbs. Do yourself a favour and go buy the Verbs. They might cost a tad more, but will give you consistently good burns.

OK I believe this is it, the movie title matches what I recorded.

Check out the IBG graph and see how it looks. Then take the disc and scan it, as above (see post 6).

 

In the future, please verify your burns.

Hi - "Check out the IBG graph and see how it looks"

 

How do I select the graph to be viewed? I believe I found the files with graph data in IBM Burn. I clicked on it and Windows XP asked me what program I want to use to open the file, so I selected IMG Burn as the program (the executable), however I get an error message from IMG Burn that it can't display that info. Am I doing something wrong?

 

I'm going to scan the disc tonight when I get home as mentioned in "post 6" and see what it comes up with.

You mentioned that in the future I should "verify the burn", however I did have the "Verify" box checked. Was I suppose to do something else after it indicatd that the burn was successful?

If the verify box was checked, there'd be verification info in the log.

 

DVDInfoPro or OptiDrive Control reads IBGs - see post 6.
