I've been burning dvd's about 5-6 weeks now. Somewhere between 30 and 40. At first, I didn't even think about checking the dvd's for crc read errors after burning them. I figured that if they played in my dvd players, I got a good burn. For a couple of reasons, I've started checking my burns with dvdinfopro. All my recent ones have crc read errors, though not enough to make them unplayable. But I do know that some of my earlier burns did not have [bold]any[/bold] crc read errors, so I'm wondering what's going on. I'm also wondering if I'm wasting my time worrying about this, and should just go back to assuming they are okay if they play okay. Are a few crc read errors common enough that I should ignore them, or are they the sign of something that I should try to get to the bottom of? Without having exhaustively analyzed every dvd I've burned, the errors [bold]seem[/bold] to have gotten worse as I have (a) changed the software I use to burn dvd's, and (b) changed the media I'm burning to. But before you assume it is the media, hear me out. When I started, I was using dvd decrypter to rip, and Roxio Easy DVD Copy to shrink and burn. The media was Memorex DVD+R, labeled as 4X, but actually 8X with a PRODISC manufacturer's id. And in this combination, I don't recall ever seeing a crc read error the few times I checked. Then I switched from Roxio Easy DVD Copy to dvd shrink for the shrink and burn (with dvd shrink using Nero to burn). I was generally happy with Roxio Easy DVD Copy, except that it seemed to strip out captions (not subtitles) where dvd shrink didn't. And being hearing-challenged, while subtitles are better than nothing, closed captions are what I really prefer. Then I discovered that one of my dvd players will not play DVD+R. So I bought some Maxell 4X dvd-r's (yellow top) with a RITEK G04 manufacturers id. I've burned about a half a dozen of those now, and every one of them have crc errors. Is this to be expected from RITEK G04 media? Are there dvd shrink/nero settings that would be gentler on the media, and give a better result? Thanks for reading.
