Scenario - Recently purchased a Pioneer 105 burner. Downloaded dvd decryptor and dvd2one, both full working (& paid for versions). Already had nero installed. A friend gave me a crash course in backing up my DVD's . He loaned me a few of his backups to start me off. I bought some Datawrite 4x yellow top dvd-r. I burnt copies of his discs and they play fine. So tried to burn a copy of a rental. Decrypted the film using the iso read function. Placed the image onto a virtual drive using daemon tools. Used dvd2one to take out the unnecessaries and got my folder ready. Used nero to burn the image making sure all the files were in the video_ts folder. Burnt at 1x. (I believe in burning slower as it prolongs the disc life). After about 50 mins my disc is ready. Pop it in the old Toshiba and get a disc error. Tried with Ritek 4x dvd-r burnt at 1x and still get the same message. These discs are working fine in other players so no coasters. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong ? I only have this toshiba stand alone for about 18 months and dont really want to part with it. Same media but different probs. My hair isnt totally pulled out but Im getting there. Using W2K and NTFS, reading and writing using the Pioneer 105 ???
