Default Problems copying authored DVD-R in Nero

I'm having problems making straight copies of authored DVD-R on to blank DVD-R using Nero.

I checked to make sure that the source disc works correctly. It does! It plays perfect all of the way through.

I'm using the wizard "quick copy" option.

I'm burning at 1X. Nero tells me that the burn is sucessfull after the session. Then I pop in the copy and it works perfect all the way towards the end where it usually stops or hangs in the last chapter or 2nd to last chapter.

I have used 3 types of DVD-R media. No name, Verbatim, and Mutsui. No luck, just coasters. I used to be able to copies these no problem. I'm not sure what changed.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, did you resolve the problem, and if so, how?

Thanks!

Have you run a DVD/CD cleaner on your burner recently? If not, you should try it. Maxell makes one that retails for about $10US (even in MN)...

Default Update

I was using two DVD drives to make the copies. A source DVD drive and a pioneer A04 for the DVD write.

I cleaned the optics on both drives, but still no luck.

I then decided to forget the copy on the fly option in the wizard. I put the source DVD in the Pioneer A04 and copied the .vobs, etc to the Nero project VIDEO_TS folder. Then I removed the source DVD and stuck a blank DVD-R into the A04 and hit "burn".

The disc came out perfect. Why? Anyone have any ideas why this would work better than a copy on the fly using two drives and NOT going to the HD at all.

Maybe the source DVD player I am using is at fault. Its a Pioneer 116. I going to look for a firmware update to see if that might help.

Yes! Just choose DVD Video on the main under "DVD", then find your disc on the right side and look in the VIDEO_TS folder and copy all of the files to the VIDEO_TS folder on the left side. When all of the files are moved, click on "burn" and your good to go.

Yeah, its really that easy, but it has to be a DVD that is 4.2 gig or smaller. This is NOT going to work for DVDs that are dual layered that are bigger than 4.2 gig. Most commercial DVDs these days are unfortunately dual layered, so this really dosent help a bunch for that, plus you will want to remove the css copy protection when ripping the dual layered DVDs. Use DVD Decypter for ripping.

When I started this post, I was refering to the copying of authored DVD-Rs which are single layer and 4.3 gig.

I used Nero and got 3 perfect burns from it. Now it successfully burns, but results are coasters. I don't use it for DVDs anymore, especially because the lastest version has a bug in the DVD-Video disk that you burn.

It finishes burning fine, but when I try it in the DVD player or PC it says invalid format. I now use Instant CD/DVD.

I never burn on the fly. I save to hard drive first just to make sure.
