Mac Pro :: Burning Dual Layer DVD+Rs Crashes OS X?

Jan 24, 2008

Thats basically the problem in a nut shell. I can't seem to burn a DVD+R DL, everytime I attempt to do this the system crashes completely and I get the transparent window telling me to restart the system. To me, this feels a lot like the blue screen of death.

Anyone else having a similar problem? Have there been similar problems reported? Its definitely not the discs either, I've tried using Philips and Memorex DVD+R DLs and neither work, however, burning this stuff on Tiger was fine, however I'm not sure if Leopard is to blame because i dont remember if I had burned any DVD+R DLs successfully using Leopard.

I've got a first gen. Mac Pro with a PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D.

Applications :: Dual Layer DVDs And Want To Burn The Same Small Movie On Both Layers?

Oct 4, 2009

This is a pretty basic question. iDVD

I have dual layer DVDs and want to burn the same small movie on both layers, one would be full screen, the other wide screen so the viewer can choose.

Is this possible? Is it just a matter of burning one movie at a time; will the comp recognize which layer is empty after the first burn?

Intel Mac :: Writing/playing Double Layer DVDs?

Jun 3, 2012

My Imac has recently began to show some problems with Dual layers DVDs that I did not experience before. It doesn't burn any DVD9 anymore. Even worse, I can not play any DVD9 I'd burnt on the same drive before, because they are constantly ejected, while before that (till 1-2 months ago) I had no problem with the same discs. With retail dvds or dvd5s (+R or -R). Does it mean that my DVD drive has become defective?

OS X :: Copy Two DVD's To One Dual Layer DVD?

Oct 11, 2009

Alright, I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for by searching so I figured I'd ask. I think it should be fairly simple.

I have a pair of DVD's that were made a few years back. They contain a couple hours of footage from an event. Too much to put on one single layer DVD so it got split over 2.

What I'd like to do is copy both intact DVDs. But I much prefer now at this time to do this on one dual layer DVD for simplicity. All I have is the two DVD's which have simple menus and the footage. Ideally, I would like to be able to keep everything, and maybe put one simple menu on top to select between part 1 and part 2.

So what are my options? I do have FCS1 and the latest iLife setup. Not much more. I just don't know the best way to set up and burn this project.

Power Mac G5 :: Internal Dual Layer DVDR (OS X Compatible)

Nov 24, 2007

I have a 2003 model 1.8 GHz G5. The original SuperDrive still works fine but I have been looking into an internal Dual Layer DVD-R as they continue to come down in price. Are there specific specifications or brands/models I need to look for to ensure OSX compatibility or to support burning from iTunes and the Finder?

Anyone know if they are 100% compatible with the iMac G5 20"?

OS X :: Copy Dual Layer DVD Via Network Cable And 2 Macs?

Dec 10, 2009

I've got a handful of dual layer DVDs of which I'd like 1 copy of each.

To save time I wondered if I could plug my machine to my mate's machine via a network cable, with the original DVD in one mac, a blank in the other, and just hit 'Copy' in Toast?

AFAIK the write machine can only do 8 speed - would the data throughput via the network cable be fast enough for this?

If not, any way of doing it via Firewire?

MacBook Pro :: Trying To Burn A .cdr File To A Dual Layer Dvd Using Disk Utility?

Jun 28, 2010

I have been trying to burn a .cdr file to a dual layer dvd using Disk Utility. I got it to work once, but I tried four times. I think that it must be very sensitive or something, because I can't figure out any other factor that affects it.

Has anybody else run into this problem, and if so, what's your solution? I think it may have to do with vibrations of the disk drive or something, but I would be lying if I said I knew that for sure...

Software :: Computer Taking DVDR As Dual Layer Disk

Apr 23, 2009

I am trying to copy a DVDR recorded on a friend's DVD recorder. The disc is a single layer 4.7Gb TDK DVD+R and I'm using Toast Titanium. The problem is that my computer thinks the DVD+R is a dual layer disc. I say the computer rather than Toast because if I open the disc and copy the VIDEO_TS folder to the hard drive it takes up more than 10Gb, which is impressive since the disc it is copied from only has a 4Gb capacity! I have googled this but failed to find a solution.

OS X :: Burning Multi Session DVDs

Feb 21, 2010

What's the matter with Apple, don't they know there is such things as DVDs . I have quite a lot of DVDs from my day's with a PC, but now I have a iMac I don't seem to be able to use them except for 1 time recording. Say for accounting , if I use the disc utility I cannot use them more than once and the same with Roxio Toast. If the backup is only 39mb that is an awful waste of a DVD to only use it once. Alternatively am I wrong with my approach's to use more than once?

Mac Pro :: Burning Dvds - Ripping And Shrinking Size

Jul 24, 2008

I'm trying to burn copies of dvds, like the second season of the office for example. On my PC we used DVDshrink to rip the dvd and then the same program would burn a copy on a blank dvd. I downloaded Mactheripper and ripped the dvd, and burned it using the burn folder in the finder. The first time the file was too large [ 7 something gb when the dvd is only 4] The second time I thought it worked but when I went to watch it it said "incorrect disc" I'm not sure if I'm doing somehting wrong of if there is a better program for ripping and shrinking the size of dvds?

OS X :: Burning Data DVDs - Discs Not Able To Read By Mac

Nov 28, 2009

I'm having issues with burning data DVDs on my Mackbook Pro (running Snow Leopard) I'm burning large files (DVD/Blu-Ray rips) and the discs are unreliable. I'm trying to pinpoint the problem but haven't been able to. Some of the discs are not able to be read by the Mac - sometimes it spits the disc out a few seconds after being inserted...other discs just spin and spin and spin and it seems the Mac cannot read them - I can't even eject them without rebooting the computer. There seems to be no rhyme or reason between discs that read OK and discs that don't. Some discs were burned via the internal superdrive and some via a Sony USB dual layer burner. All discs burn and verify OK - there was no indication on any of them that anything went wrong. I am using Sony and Memorex discs, single and dual layer. Are there any known issues with either the Mac superdrive, or the burning of large (4+ GB - almost 8 GB) single files? I've got a good number of discs here and like I said all burned OK...but I've been having to go back to retrieve files and am only now finding that some of the discs are giving the problems described above, which means many of the backups I thought were legit are no good. Alternatively, if there is a better method for backing up these files . They are stored on hard drives being used by a streaming video player. I thought backing up each file to DVD would be a reliable backup method but apparently this is not the case. It's not ideal to back up to other hard drives - there are too many files and it would be too expensive. I don't know that online backups would be feasible because of the amount of time it would take to upload them and the space they would take up would likely be too expensive to maintain.

Software :: Atapi / AT / MacBookPro Not Burning DVDs

Oct 9, 2009

Mac Book Pro / 10.5.8 Impossible to burn DVD, it refuses to burn then ejects the DVD. (It's not the first time, the computer has already been fixed for a similar problem and it then didn't accept any DVD, even for playing). For the moment he can read. I've tried only Verbatim DVD+R or DVD-R. Through Toast Titanium 10.0 or not.

Error code 0x8002006E
Sense key = Medium Error
Sense Code = 0x0C

Notice that with CDs, all is right, burning and reading. It seems then not to be a "mechanical" problem. I'd like to know what does this code mean? How to fix? Can you tell me what to do and propose some solution?

Applications :: Burning DVDs With Roxio Toast Titanium 5.2.1?

Sep 6, 2003

I bought Roxio Toast Titanium 5.0 and downloaded the 5.2.1 update so I could burn some DVDs on my iMac (which is about 2 months old). I set it to record a video_ts file from one of the DVD discs that I've ripped to the hard drive. It records the files and verifies, then it says that the DVD was burned fine. The problem is that when I try it on any DVD player, the disc will not play. It won't play in a stand-alone DVD player, on the iMac nor on my PC. I checked what was burned, and all the files were recorded fine. I've gone through 6 discs with the same result. The only time it recorded anything viewable, was when I set it for "disc copy" and even then, the entire DVD was not recorded because of some error and when I popped it in the player, the portion that was recorded was very pixelated and unwatchable.
