Huge Problems with Drag to disk on DVD+R


Huge Problems with Drag to disk on DVD+R

Postby aristottle on Sun Feb 13, 2005 11:41 am

I am stumped.....I have been trying to clear off old files on by hard drive by formatting blank DVD +R media as Drag to Disks........When I attempt to close the DVD once it is full, about half the time it says "that it failed to make DVD compatible" then spits out the DVD....when I reload it, it shows as empty....I do a scan disk and it takes forever to find the mistakes.

I am using Roxio version 7 with XP and SP2. Does Neros "IN CD" work better?

Some times I can go to use a drag to disk DVD that I made a year ago, and all of a sudden it won't work????????

PLEASE HELP.....this is a huge pain

BTW, I have used atleast 10 different types of media and have had problems with them all.

ANY packet writing software will be less compatible than just burning the discs in the main program (such as Easy Media Creator/Creator Classic). Especially using +R (or -R) discs, instead of +RW/-RW as there is no room for error since it can't go back.

Is there a reason you're using DtoD instead of just burning the files?

In my experience, InCD is **much** more trouble than Drag to Disc. It seems to have a lot of compatibility issues with other programs (including stuff that should be totally unrelated to CD/DVD burning) I've had very few problems with DtoD overall, but I only use rewritable media with it. Have you updated to the latest version of EMC7? (There was a 7.1 patch that's huge, that came out about a month or so ago)
