''Error writing DVD! Please check the log file for more info

by TonyTTurner / February 27, 2006 7:37 AM PST

Hi, I'm getting the above Error Message when I use a Certain ''Ripping/Burning'' program on a lengthy music video DVD.
It ''Reads'' the DVD fine, but when I put in a Blank DVD, hit Start,...''BONG!'' up pops the above message.
Where can I locate the Log Files, and what should I be looking for.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Since XP doesn't natively write DVD media, tell more.

Hello again, R.Proffitt! ..Well, here's the deal...
by TonyTTurner / February 27, 2006 1:36 PM PST

But first, my Desktop system's info is on My Bio (I've updated them)...
I have a copy of the "controversial" DVDXcopy Plat.
I've successfully used it with both of my system's DVD drives to make personal archival copies of my DVDs., and only until I tried to use it with a Music Video DVD (Total size of the DVD is 7.89 GB according to the "Details" window in the "My Computer" folder.) did I get the Error message I spoke of. (The strange thing is, I've actually archived DVDs very close to that size with no problems.
Any more info needed, please let me know.
Thank You.

About the bio. I don't look anymore. Here's why.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 27, 2006 10:45 PM PST

I think it's been over 2 times that all bio information has been wiped out. I no longer check it.

This is an all volunteer forum so you get to be as helpful as you can to help others help you. Hope you understand what I've written and I do hope we find something to help with your issue.

"DVDXcopy Plat. " = Sorry, it's no longer out and more so our converstion dies there.

However if you want a replacement I am forbidden from telling you want works for me but can share it's the first software at this link:

In closing, I can't offer support for such endeavors directly, but I have if you follow the link and try that software.

Wink, wink. Nod, nod.

Hey R.Proffitt... Thank you, yet again! Sorry this is late..
by TonyTTurner / March 17, 2006 11:39 AM PST

I tend to put posts at a couple other Forums just to compare my options. Wink
I thoroughly understand what you mean, and Agree that one should Always paste a system's info Here; since Yes indeed, this IS a complimentary All-Volunteer forum. Wink
With that said,
Here is my info, First on my DeskTop, then, on my LapTop: ------------------>

Pent. 4 w/HyperThreading, Windows XP Home Serv. Pack 2, 3.00GHz, 1.50GB RAM, Buffalo 80GB Internal HDD, Internal AOPEN DUW1608/ARR Dual-Layer DVD/CD RW drive. Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 V-Card. DSL Extreme connected.
DELL Inpiron 9300 Laptop, WinXP Media Edition Vers. 2002 Serv Pack 2, Pent. M proc. 1.86 GHz, 1.00 GB RAM, 51.1 GB HDD, TSSTcorp TS-L532B Dual-Layer DVD+-RW drive. Built-in WiFi & Bluetooth
There we go! Wink Heck, all it takes is a little C & P, right? Wink
By the way, I'm using Nero OEM on Both machines as my Burning software, however ''DVD X'' tends to enable me to burn with whatever is Resident on the PCs.
My question is:
Now, about your ''suggestion'' to use the ''Link'' ...''item''
that you had added...
Do you think that either ''DVD item'' would ''Conflict'' with each other? I mean, can I choose to use my DVD ''X'' item, and/or the ''Shrink'' item without problems? Cause I'd really Love to be able to have a choice, ya know?
- I hope I'm being clear with my Inquiry -
Just curious Wink
Thank You again!

Sorry, but I must make it clear that I can't write much about this.
