DVD Burning

  beelara 05:48 12 Nov 2006

I have a problem with the final burning process. I have a Pioneer 109 dual layer burner
I have DVD Shrink and Decrypter software.
I can burn without problems most times , But now and again whilst watching a burnt DVD I get an appearance of a previous scene from a previous burn I did. It first pixalates then a couple of seconds of vision it then carries on without any probs
The burn folder for the encoding process is always deleted of any previous data but still I get the contamination occurring. I even delete the folder and introduce a new one I have reinstalled DVD Shrink and Decrypter to no avail I have checked for hidden files etc
I have come to the conclusion that the Hard drive has bad sectors, I have defragged and error checked the drive
Currently Iam using an extention drive to encode to but its early days no problem at present.
I seek comments to this problem it appears to make the whizz kids scratch their heads

Are you using DVD "RW" disks that have been previously used and erased? You may be picking up bits of the previous recording from that.

What make discs are you using? Are you using freeware to do the burning?

I use Ritek printable discs. I use freeware I dont appear to have issues with Shrink or Decrypter at least I dont think I have any probs in that area. Thanks for your input

The recording of previous material has to be from your hard drive - not the type of disks used.
You have cleared all previous files- how?
Simple deletion may not be enough-
Deleting anything on a hard drive does not remove it, it simply 'switches off' the location file- the data is still there until over written.
Many programs cover for this - there was a time when a word processed document would present a few lines of text from something else - it was a disk and disk reading problem[floppy or hard]
When you have made a recording, and cleared the folder- shut the machine down.
Restart then run a cleaning program - CCleaner or Ashampoo - Then make your next recording.
