DVD burn failures.

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.

Just so you know.

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 apologize.

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.

Not p2p, thats too slow.

I trade content at LAN parties.

Which has the same issues.

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