DVDA and W.7
 
Is DVDA -5 compatible with W.7.? I've had it on XP pro for a while and it works perfectly, Since installing W.7 and re-installing DVDA-5 onto it. everything has gone haywire.

Uninstall and reinstall. There should be no problems.

IAN. My problem is that DVDA is working perfectly with W.7 when making DVD's. But when trying to make Blu-ray discs. It won't recognise any blank disc except for Verbatim BD-R/BD-RW. with XP I could burn HD to STD.DVD discs. Also when trying to burn a second HD disc when invited to do so. It freezes when it comes to burning lead in. Sometimes a message says DVDA has stopped working and report. The only way I can make a copy is to start from scratch again. However on reflection I think it might be lack of memory since I have left XP on another drive and with W.7 I am using XP mode so I can use Adobe pro version which won't work with W.7. The only reason I want to use Adobe Pro 2 is because I can stop at any point on a scolling title which I can't do on VMS10 platinum . I then transfer the title to Vegas. That's how I did it when I just had XP on the PC and everything worked well. I am going to install more memory and see what happens.

I would never burn a disc from DVDA, especially not an expensive Blu-ray Disc. Always burn to ISO, then burn the ISO to the disc with ImgBurn, and do so as many times as you want.

Re: DVDA and W.7
 
I'll second that,

For years my workflow was to create the DVD/BD in DVDA and then burn them using ImgBurn...using nothing but Verbatim discs.

So far this workflow has been spotless.

Re: DVDA and W.7
 
You all give sound advice. I have got IMGBURN installed but can't understand it's settings. I've had three coasters one after another. I wish I could work with it because I've heard such good reports about it. I've asked how to use it step by step, that's the only way I can take it in, but everyone who answers thinks I know as much about PC's as they do. Sadly I don't. I buy DVD tutorials on all programmes I want to use and I get by. Unfortunately I can't find any such tutorials for IMGBURN. The programmes helpline goes above my head.

Re: DVDA and W.7
 
Well, Roy, then you need to ask very specific questions at each step you do not understand.

ImgBurn has comprehensive tutorials available on their website You can find them here:

Re: DVDA and W.7
 
I've just tried to burn another DVD from ingburn. First I printed out instructions from YOUTUbe tutorial. As far as I can tell I followed these instructions to the letter. I wanted to make a disc from files and so clicked onto that panel at the start. Result. The disc played back on the PC from the rewriter and wouldn't play on any standalone player. It just displayed the word data and nothing else. As far as I could tell on the imgburn log the disc had been verified. This is my 4th attempt and probally my last. Trouble is nobody near me uses Vegas or IMGBURN.

Off on a tangent: It's interesting that only one brand of BD-R is working for you. Have other brands ever worked with any software on this PC/OS build?

Are you sure that your burner firmware is the current, latest version? To check this, you'd refer to instructions at the burner manufacturer's website. It is quite possible that other brands aren't working because your burner firmware & driver don't recognize them.
