DVD burn fail

A new addition to Muvipix, with support and discussion of Sony's DVD Architect Studio.

DVD burn fail

Postby gortang » Wed Jul 01, 2015 4:48 pm

I have successfully burned a DVD only 2 times in about 30 attempts. Usually DVD Architect Studio stops when it times out. I am using a LG external drive, model BE14NU40, connected via a USB 3 port. I suspect there may be an issue with this drive vis-a-vis my laptop. Has anyone had a similar experience? Does anyone have any suggestions? Since it has worked twice, I know that it can work.

Hi Gortang, Welcome to Muvipix :meet:

Are you burning the same movie or have the two successful attempts been different projects? How long is the video you are trying to burn, in minutes? What type of DVDs are you using?

Welcome from me too. :meet:

I am not familiar with DVD Architect Studio but, if it is possible, can you write the DVD image to a file(?) and if so, try using ImgBurn** to create the physical DVD. Let us know if that worked.

** ImgBurn is free and a lot of us here use it.

You can. It's the "Prepare" button. That's my workflow, exactly.

The successful burns were different videos, both short. It has failed on long videos and short. I am using DVD-R.

One thing that might cause a burn failure is a small gap - even just one frame - in the timeline of the video.

What brand of DVD -R are you using, some brands are notorious for failures. Also check for any firmware updates for your burner. The suggestion to use ImgBurn is a good one, as a test if nothing else.

I am using Memorex DVD-R, which may be part of the problem. I will try a better brand. I will also try your other suggestions. Thanks.

I'm with Peru and John. I always create a Prepared file, burning the disc image to files, rather than burning directly to disc and then I use ImgBurn to burn those folders to a disc. (We've got tutorials on how to do this on our site.)

There are a number of advantages to doing this. For one thing, ImgBurn has a "verify" option that double-checks your burn to make sure there wasn't a flaw in the disc.

But the main advantage is that, if you're having problems, breaking down the process into separate steps helps you isolate and troubleshoot your burn so you can find out where things are going wacky.
