ok, no matter what program i use i am getting read errors of some sort. I'm starting to think i have a bad DVD drive. it will read about 1/2 to 2/3 of the disc and then strat throwing errors all the time. the drive is also making some weird noise too when it does this. it revs up and then i hear like a clunk and then it slows, revs up clunk and then slows...

so what do you think? possibly a bad drive? All a have is the $35 light scribe LightOn DVD drive...

Does the DVD play normally in your computer all the way through if you try and watch it from there?

well i've never used it to watch a movie, but it installs programs and reads other discs alright. Can't say that everything else i do causes it to read all through the disc though...

I'd honestly try watching that movie you are trying to burn or whatnot.

if its only doing that during burning, try slowing down. Choose an 8x burn speed. My 16x & 20x burners don't like my current batch of HP DVD'* at top speed but work fine at 8x.

btw- my drives make that same noise when on max speed so maybe this is a simple fix to your problem too.

well it never gets to the burn segment. can i slow the read speed down? that might be it...


oh, thought i might mention this. it does the same thing when i just try and do a copy paste from the DVD to my hard drive. DVD43 allows me to do that and then i could use another program to compress it if i want to. anyhow, just copy and paste causes it to throw errors.
