Default Re authoring HELP

Hi everybody

I have a DVD burnt on a panasonic deck. I copied from a video camera, starting and stopping the recordings so I ended up with 80 odd chapters. When I try to re author it in DVD shrink it seems to work OK but when I play back the DVD skips from chapter 11 to the last chapter. I have copied and spliced some chapters and the total for the DVD is now 88. If I delete the end chapter the result still skips from 11 to whatever is at the end. If I right click in Power DVD I can go to the missing chapters and play them, but in the ordinary way, it skips from 11 to end and stops. This is driving me nuts. Can anyone help?

Phil.

It skips when playing it from your hard drive?

Either on the hard drive or on a DVD, I've tried both.

If your backup freezes, stutters, skips, or has some pixelation, it is more than likely due to poor quality media being used. Cheap media is poorly manufactured around the edge of the disc, hence the reason why it mostly skips toward the end of the movie. The two main things to consider first are:
  • Is it cheap media that you are using? (ie. some off brand you bought at a local computer store/fair, even a store like Circuit City or Best Buy sells cheap low quality media.)
  • How fast are you burning? - Burn no faster than 4X, might have to go down to 2X with really cheap media.

Also, are you using adhesive labels on your back ups? If so, try removing the labels (if you can) and playing them again. Go here for more info on why not to use labels. - http://forum.digital-digest.com/show...threadid=28604

You can go here for some other possible solutions: http://forum.digital-digest.com/show...threadid=44912


Also try lowering outcome the "Target DVD size".

Open DVD Shrink. Click "Edit", then "Preferences". On the first tab at the top in the drop down box, change it from "DVD-5 (4.7GB) to "Custom" and enter a number of 4200MB (4464MB is burning to the edge of the disc, you want to stay away from the edge as the edge of cheap media (disc's) are poorly manufactured).

Hi

The problem is not the quality but the fact that the DVD simply plays to chapter 11 and then goes straight to the last chapter. plays it and finishes. If I delete the last chapter before writing/burning it playss from 11 to the new last chapter. It seems that whatever I do. If I edit the files, the result will play to chapter 11 and then skip to the end chapter, whatever it may be. There is no jerky picture or pixelation, the quality is fine. It simply behaves as if there is only 12 chapters on the disk/hard drive, whichever I write it to. The rest of the chapters are there, but only accessible by right clicking on Power DVD and going directly to them .

I've done some more tests and interestingly, if I use reauthor and don't try to edit any chapters it works fine. One other thing, the DVD I am editing has four large files (above 150 mb) which Shrink takes as the main movie and the rest are quite small apart from the odd one or two. So when I load the files into DVD shrink it chucks those big chapters to the top of the screen. I thought may have an affect was when I was forced to move them into order with the rest but if I don't try to edit, all works fine. If I/we/you can't get to the bottom of this. Does the panel know if there is other software out there and if so would they recommend it?
Thanks
Phil.
