OTP & PTP??!!

If the LB is currently in a place that wont work on OTP discs... i.e. where Layer 1 is bigger than Layer 0, you'll need to recreate the image using something like PGC edit.

 

Unless of course ImgBurn itself can find another Cell in the PGCs that will meet the criteria.

 

Load the image, right click on the 'Sectors' text in the main window and get it to display IFO layer break. If it works, you'll be ok. If it doesn't, PgcEdit it.

OTP - Opposite Track Path, means the data is burned from the inside of the disc to the outside on the first layer and then from the outside back to the middle on the second layer.

 

PTP - Parallel Track Path, means the data is burned inside to outside of disc on first layer and then the same again on the second layer.

 

(I think) :lol:

 

As for problems I don't really know as all my DL backups have been OTP originals. If your worried try PgcEdit as Lightning suggested above.

So do I. But, in my opinion, the time to jump from last cell of layer 0 and first of layer 1 is different if the cells are near or far between them. so, in PTP mode, U can appriciate the jump and the movie stops for a few seconds.

If for any reasons I can't have original OTP, but only PTP how can I solve the problem by using PGCedit?

Hope I explain my point of view

Eh?!

 

The destination media determines the track path, it's not something that can be configured in software.

 

All writable DL media is OTP. I can't change that.

 

If the PTP DL image has a LB that's not allowed by OTP specs, ImgBurn will look for alternatives that are within spec. If it finds one, it'll move it there. If it can't find one, you need to rebuild the image with PgcEdit and have it apply padding to the files so that a cell WILL be within spec for a layer break position.

 

After that, PgcEdit will pass the LB to ImgBurn and it'll burn.

 

ImgBurn doesn't have to do anything.

You're not boring (me), I just don't think you've quite understood what PTP and OTP is all about.

 

PgcEdit doesn't and cannot tell ImgBurn to burn OTP... there is no such things as 'Burning OTP' or 'Burning PTP'. Discs are either manufactured to be read/written OTP style, or they're manufactured to be read/written PTP style.

 

The software doesn't give a monkeys if it's PTP or OTP - all it sees is LBA 0... LBA 1... LBA 2.... LBA XXXXXXXX.

 

The Image PgcEdit spits out is also not specifically aimed at OTP or PTP discs, it's just an image that has Layer 0 smaller than or equal to the size of Layer 1.

 

The image could be burnt onto an OTP disc or a PTP disc.

 

The only time you can't burn an image onto a OTP disc is if Layer 0 is bigger than layer 1.

Slight typo?

 

L0 > L1 :)

 

And I'm wondering where all these PTP writables are, too - I haven't seen any on the market.

 

In any event pennyman, it would be impossible to have even the semblence of a seamless break in a PTP - it would be many times worse than in the regular OTP disks.

So let me know if I have understood.

All writeble DVD+DL media are set in OTP mode.

The only important thing to have good results is to set L0>L1 (or even equal) with PGCedit.

It doesn't matter if; reading an ISO file, the track path is PTP or OTP.

Is that correct?
