Okay, here's my story. I just installed a new Pioneer burner, tested it out by burning some normal files to a DVD, and I was able to retrieve them just fine. So the burner works at least somewhat. However, following the steps outlined in the copying DVD to DVD-R guide using DVD Decrypter, I can't make a copy to save my soul. I was able to use Decrypter to make an image of the movie (which is something like .2 gig under the limit of 4.6) and when I mounted it to a virtual drive using Alcohol 120%, I could play it back perfectly fine. So the image is good. I've made three coasters and saved myself countless more using various simulation features. Now, I've tried burning with DVD Decrypter, failed. Tried Alcohol, failed. Tried DVD X-Copy, no luck. Nero? Not a chance. In fact, Nero doesn't even recognize Decrypter's format, it only likes bins, and isos, and hates anything ending in .mds. Here's the error message from my latest attempt, which I achieved by trying to mount the movie on an Alcohol created virtual drive, and burning it on the fly with my Pioneer, using Alcohol. Convoluted and pointless? Yes, but after trying every other possible permutation of options, programs, and methods I could think of, I figured one more couldn't hurt. Anyway, error message as follows: 06:28:51 Simulated recording - DVD DAO - 1.0X (1380 KB/Sec) 06:30:13 (M PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D(0:1) - [Write ERROR] LBA: 3440, Length: 16 S:KEY - 05/21/02 - "Invalid Address For Write" 06:30:13 (M PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D(0:1): Recording failed! 06:30:13 Error message: [05/21/02] - Invalid Address For Write 06:30:13 (M PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D(0:1): Simulated recording failed! 06:30:13 Disc dumping aborted! For what it's worth, I'm using GQ media until I can get some Riteks. The error always occurs as soon as it tries burning (i.e. right after it fills up the buffer and starts actually trying to do something), and similar errors result no matter what program I use. Even simulated burning doesn't work, so I don't think it's the media. I could be wrong though. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
