Okay, here's my situation (I wrote a couple days ago under another thread)
I have been burning dvds fine for 2 weeks now using dvd shrink/imgtool/imgburn using dvd-rs (Memorex), everything was perfect. Then, I picked up some sony dvd-rws. Thats when the trouble began. Since I have changed the type of dvds I am using, nothing works!! When I am done burning, ImgBurn says disc is "incomplete" under status, whereas before it said "complete" when I was done burning. When I put the disc in my dvd players, they don't playback. I checked a list of compatibility, and BOTH my dvd players are compatible for DVD-RWs. Also, my dvd burner says its supports DVD-RWs. So, if my computer says it likes DVD-RWs, and my DVD players do too, then why the problem? I have changed absolutely nothing in what I am doing, I have only changed the media. Am I supposed to do something with DVD-RWs that I don't do with DVD-Rs? I don't know much about this stuff, so I turn to you guys for help. A copy of the log from ImgBurn when I burn a faulty dvd is below. Actually, now that I think about it there was one other change, I think I might have updated my imgburn to version 188.8.131.52 as well. I dunno, I never get any indiction either from ImgBurn that anything has gone wrong, other than the fact that it says "incomplete". After so called burning, it says "operation successfully completed". Help!!
