DVD burn failures.

by strickjh2005 / February 28, 2007 10:20 PM PST

I am trying to burn a specific set of videos onto DVDs becuase they take up 30gb. Every time I try to burn them I get an error. After failing to burn them a dosen or so times I tried to burn a different kind of project and my DVD burner no longer functioned.

So I bought a new DVD burner and burned several discs with the same media. Never had an error. I went to burnt that old project and came up with an error. I have become paranoid that if I try to burn the old project, my new dvd burner will fail.

I can't comment given so few details. I will share that I use other tools like CDBURNERXP to record files on DVD media every other day without issue. But some might use a Nero video dvd maker which has to encode the video or build menus and there can be transcoding issues. I can't help except to identify that issue but look at your post. How can you tell from the details presented?

I have to be vague so I don't break any rules in the forums. Let me give you the details that are acceptable...

I am trying to burn video files, encoded in divx as data on a data session. I use Nero express. Any other type of video file is burning fine. It only seems to be related to these specific videos. I changed the file names because I thought there might have been a joliet limit exceeded. I know that this can cause issues. Now they all say cartoon012 or cartoon113 as a list. I try to burn 25 files at a time at about 170mb each. The sets of 25 are anywhere from 4.00gb to 4.25gb.

Is there anyway that I can archive these damn things. I have 700gb of space but 30gb of files I rarely to never use seems silly.

That doesn't work.

Video files from P2P sources do break Nero. I will offer no workaround.

Sorry but this is all I can offer.

I trade content at LAN parties.

Which has the same issues.

Nero can't handle that. Next time trade solutions to this as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
