Firstly I'd just like to say, I know what I'm doing with a PC and have a fair knowledge of how burning CD/DVDs works and I've burnt a fair few in the past. I also know my Samsung DVD drive is fully DVD+R compatible. I have had 2 possible problems arise today. My inital problem is with a 10 pack of jewel-cased DVD+R DVDs I recently bought from PCWorld. I just backed up my Animatrix DVD (which is fully working and genuine) to an ISO file using a registered copy of MagicISO. The backup appeared to go well and I made sure to close all uneeded apps before starting the copy. When I came to burn the ISO to one of the blank DVD+Rs using ImgBurn (version 18.104.22.168, the latest to date), the program didn't seen to like the DVD. The burn button was greyed out and it wasn't giving any reason why. So thinking it was the program not being able to cope, I went back to MagicISO to see if it would burn the image file. Another error turned up and I couldn't even start to burn to the disc. This program reported that the disc wasn't empty! Me being the type to accept a faulty product, opened another blank DVD to try. Still nothing from either of the programs. I even tried a 3rd disc to make sure: no such luck. Before you say it's a duff ISO copy, it can't be because MagicISO had the error message before I even went to load the ISO. Now, I know my DVD writing drive can write to DVD+Rs because I use them all the time, the last working brand (which worked very well actually) were Sony DVD+Rs in a similar 10 pack jewel-cased box. The two brands are identical in their specifications. Could this be down to my drive disliking Panasonic DVDs? My second problem, which may be more obvious, is that when trying to open the ISO in VLC Media Player, all I get is a blue screen, but I get the sound working fine. I'm guessing this is down to reigon/CSS protection so I've just downloaded a trial version of DVD Reigon/CSS Free to see if I can copy the DVD to an image file with that. Fingers crossed... So the first problem is more of a dagger in my side than the second (which hopefully I'll have sussed pretty soon...). If anyone has any suggestions experience with these Panasonic DVD+Rs, the details would be most helpful, I'm sure. Cheers!
