Hi from the new guy,
I've been backing up my DVD's for quite a while with much success using many different DVD + and - R blanks.
Recently I decided to go DL so I got a deal on a new HP 1040d dual burner...I thought life backing up movies was gonna be good...well so far, it's been pretty frustrating.
My first day out went great, made a backup of Mr. Brooks and it went smoothly...plays great in my players at home.
The steps I used was this:
DVD Shrink it for Main movie only...then let DVD Shrink open DVD Decryptor and I burned the first DL disc and it went great...end of story.
Fast forward to this weekend..I had two movies I wanted to get done..Oceans 13 and Superbad...no problem I thought...
Well I followed my same steps as before, but this time at about 1/3 into the burning to disc I got a big I/O error message...hmmm...well I tried again...same darn thing...I tried doing the other movie...DARN! same thing happening...and this went on and on and on...made at least 6-7 coasters before I gave up.
After a while I tried to go the ImgBurn route...made layer break...etc etc...burn time comes, BAM! disc gets killed 1/3 of the way into the burn. ARGHHHH!!!
So now I have both movies on my hard drive as .ISO files but am too scared to try anymore burns.
What am I doing wrong?? Is it REALLY a WHOLE batch of bad discs with just the ONE disc that worked out of 26 blanks???
Is there something different I must do to burn to DL vs. the old way I used to due single layers??
Thanks again and sorry for being long winded...but this is majorly frustrating.
Here'san error message that always pops up when I burn:
