Can use DVD shrink, but decrypter just won't burn...

    Okay, I'm confused. I've been burning about 5 mos with a Pioneer DVR-111D using Sony DVD+R and have had no problems. I usually use AnyDVD, then DVD shrink, then DVD decrypter. But now, all of a sudden when I try to burn using DVD decrpyter it just says writing lead in, and does nothing, it can sit for hours, won't do a thing. I just have to cancel it. I've tried movies that burnt okay before and the same thing. I went looking for firmware but then it said if you download the wrong one it'll mess everything up, so I got a little leary. Any ideas, sorry I'm not too savvy at all this yet.

    Is this a new spindel of blank DVD's or a new batch recently purchased? What is the make and model number of your drive? It could be very likely that you need to update your firmware.

    It has worked just fine until 2 days ago. Im in the middle of a 50 pack of the sony dvd+rs. I even opened a new pack and tried those, but I get the same result, it wont get past the writing lead in. The burner is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D. The only firmware update I saw from Pioneer was from 9/06, so I didn't think that would just now cause it to konk out.

    hello jestagrl,

    I have the same drive, Look in dvd decrypter and see what ur firmware is
    [​IMG]

    There is a firmware update HERE
    1.29

    I am running 1.23 but use only Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden dvds and never had a problem once.

    U can also try to burn with IMGburn get it HERE IMO it is a better burner than decrypter jus cuz of the updates, also made by the same guy.

    Try changing Decrypter.Go to www.dvdidle.com/free.htm and download the DVDFab Decrypter 3.0.8.0 and that should help.I also used the one from your picture of Decrypter and changed it to DVDFab and it now handles all my Shrink unless I use DVDFab Gold or Platinum which you can also download for free for 30 days and you don't need to
    Decrypter if you use Gold or Platinum.

    Hey thanks, sadly I couldn't figure what version of firmware I had. But with your picture, I was able to see it was 1.19. I used your link to bump it to the 1.23 you are using and am back in business. I'll try to download those other burners to try out also. Thanks for all your help, you guys are awesome.

    If you've successfully upgraded your firmware stick with it...no reason to try the other firmware version, as a matter of fact I'd advise against it.

    Okay, I'm back to having the same problem. I updated firmware to the 1.29, and I updated anydvd. It's the same thing it just tries to do the write in but the write speed never changes from 0x. Should I try to download the dvdfabdecrypter or could it be a problem with the drive itself.

    first i would try ImgBurn Here is a LINK for that

    Also Here is a GUIDE for burning Video_ts folders

    This is not a burner, this just rips the dvd to the HD

    It could be the burner doesn't like Sony media,
    also like i said i have the same burner and have not had one single problem with burning Verbatims or Taiyo Yuden

    That would depend on what Sony it is. The Japanese has been Taiyo Yuden for the +R for all I've purchased the last year or so. The Taiwanese Sony +R is by Sony and on my drives it's worked as well as the Taiyo Yuden discs. I can't vouch for the -R sony, but the +R sure has done well.

    Download and use the free DVD Identifier to get the Manufacturer ID for the Sony DVD +Rs and let us know what it is.

    Does it say Made in Taiwan on the label? Sony makes good +R media. At least with my burners it doesn't matter if it's Sony or Taiyo Yuden Sony +R media. I've used a hundred or more of each.

    I think they are probably the D21 MID coded sonys, i doubt that they are the TYs sonys.

    Have u tried IMGburn yet?

    You're right. I use Sony all the time. The +R with the Sony manufacturer ID are more than likely the Made in Taiwan product. That's why I asked. Sony manufactures those under their own name, and why the manufacturer ID reads Sony. That would be like saying brand and manufacturer, i.e. Sony-Sony, Sony-Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim-MCC, Verbatim-Taiyo Yuden. That's why DVD Identifier is such a handy tool.

    i downloaded imgburn and it was able to burn a couple discs. but now all i get is the invalid address for write. Just seems crazy that all of a sudden i just seem to have problem after problem. I think each day I just get more confused.

    well i dont know what to suggest.

    Have u tried burning them higher than 4x maybe try 6x or 8x

    u could wait for more replys, maybe what Pacman burns his sonys at.

    this looks like a warning, but it seems it will only effect the verify stage and not the actual burning process.

    This error is caused by 2 things. One is the media the other is the burner dying.(Most of the time its the media)

    Media is more than likely the problem,
    so one way to rule out if the burner is good or not pick up some Verbatims and see if they work.
    If they dont work than it is probably the burner.

    I am assuming the pioneer u have is fairly new right?

    Why are the partitions formatted in FAT32 instead of NTFS? There are file size concerns. FAT32 limits file size and DVD Movies are often large. Are you turning off AnyDVD when you go to burn with ImgBurn? ImgBurn is giving a warning it may interfere.
