Default imgburn jerkey avi files problem

I am trying to back up avi files from my camcorder onto verbatum DVD+R DL double layer disks. I did a movie first to test out the burn and it went fine.

the burn went fine and was verified but when i tried to play the individual avi files from the disk, they were jerkey and very slow. some got error msgs from my player (latest version of mplayer classic). here is the data from the rt window in imgburn ver 2.3.0.0.

alas all the sites seem to be down with the imgburn tutorials.

Why do you need to burn AVI file captured from camcorder to DVD anyway? The file size is way to large. You can encode to XviD, DviX, or even DVD compatible MPEG-2

benbryant..

I want to save the avi files because i am going to make a documentary of building my new blacksmith shop,, stone, iron and logs...and all done "by hammer in hand". I hope to sell the finished vid on line,, or out of my shop,,a great and unique experience.

these files will be my "master" or original takes. any form of compression means i lose quality, and that i don't want to do until i finish my editing. So on the editing sites, the recommendation is to save these in their original format and unedited as well. original format would be dv on tape or avi as captured onto my computer.

my choices are to save them to DV tapes for around $9.00-$10.00 each or on dual layer dvd's at $1.50-$1.75 each,,and two per tape. So its less bucks for storage,,and easier access if they are on disks for my computer.

besides,, if i am having this problem with avi files,, perhaps i would have them with the other formats you mentioned? i backed up another three dvd movies that i had on my HD onto dual layer disks with imgburn with no problem,, so it must be that i set up the data burn wrong?

Lol,, i am about half done or so with my project,,and just have to get all this stuff out of my 'puter!! not only because of space limits but for fear of a random HD crash!!! and all would be lost...

And the final editing is a whole separate project,,and learning experience!! this is just the raw footage.


I am not burning these as a video disk, but want to store them as a data disk.

perhaps what i did was not set up imgburn properly for a data disk? for "file system" i used iso9660 + UDF, and checked the box for preserve full path names and Recursive Subdierectories..

I would trust a hard drive, especially a new one, much more than even a dual layer verbatim, with that data

remember dual layer technology is still iffy at best

single layer I would trust much more with my data

I use miniDV camcorder too. After capturing movies from camcorder to PC, I always keep the original movies in the miniDV tapes just in case and never erase or record the new movies over the used tapes. Those tapes, to me, are priceless and I want to be sure to have the backups if needed

I absolutely agree with Chewy over the reliabily of DVD+/-R for keeping valuable video or data. Saving to external or internal hard drives is a wonderful solution
