1. Since I run into set top players that only play DVD+R , others that play DVD-R and a few (Samsung DV8500) that will have nothing to do with recorded media at all, you need to consider getting a pressed DVD. Google it up about such.
2. If it's short, try SVCD. Even the noted unit that balked at every conceivable type of recorded DVD (ISO-1, +R, -R, -RAM, etc) seems to play this older standard.
3. Run the final copy through DVDSHRINK and record at no higher than 1/2 the rated media or drive recording speed whichever is lower.
Best of luck,
I have a non-copyrighted promotional DVD that every so often I need to mass copy (50 -100) for sales tools.
I have used Nero Burning ROM (184.108.40.206 Sony Edition) in the past, in batches of (25) or so. There were customer-reported error problems on some of the last batch, so I switched to a better medium, Ritek Ridata which are approved at 12X for the Sony DRU-710A drive.
This time, I tried checking the "verify data after write" box, and got a massive 30-40% failure to verify. Some "failed to verify" discs were perfect when viewed on a set-top box, others had problems, but this method of checking all the discs manually can get expensive and time-consuming.
Anybody have any other ideas? I have the DVD as a VIDEO_TS file on my C: drive and a hard "original" on DVD. I own virtually every burning app out there. Except the one in your answer, of course. I am looking for the most error-free mass copying solution, something with error checking or such?
The firmware on the drive is the latest as is the Nero version. Thanks all.
