Files on burned CD/DVDs not showing

Q: Files on burned CD/DVDs not showing

I am looking through old CD's/DVD's to see what is on them and when I pop them in all I see is this: DESKTOP.INI

but as you can see here there is files on the disc:

When I pop the CD's into my laptop they show up. What is going on here? It is doing it on certain DVD's so far it seems to be doing it on Memorex DVD+R discs.

I am just guessing because it was only 3-5 discs that have done this so far. Is there a setting or something I am missing?

I just put a CD-R in and it also refuses to show the files. My friend told me it's because my Drive is -R and the disc is +R. However the CD-R not showing up kind of shoots that theory.

I DVDs Skip Burned have recently bought a new dvd burner and am having couple of problems with it st The first DVD I burned played fine but now the second DVD skips in the later parts of the movie Both of the movies were in avi format and Nero Vision Express Burned DVDs Skip software provided with the burner Burned DVDs Skip automatically converted them to DVD format to be burned I left the computer idle so extra resources won t occupied and the process would go smoothly However when I tried to play the movie it started skipping near the last quarter I thought it might be the dvd player since it was running for a while about two hours before I popped in the burned DVD so I let it cool down but that did not affect the outcome as it kept skipping at almost the same points There were no scratches on the DVD so that could not be the problem The one thing that might have caused it to skip is that I edited out the credits and the beginning producer and distributor logos to fit it into the dvd It was about megs less than the normal dvd size with a track included at the beginning as background music for the Title Menu nd I cannot seem to burn a data DVD using Nero I was trying to burn a huge collection of music and other data documents short clips diffferent kinds of files I tried it three times The first time I tried burning everything and it failed at around Burn Process Completed The second time I excluded some files I thought may cause the error but it failed again at around Then the last time I tried burning only the mp s as an mp disc but it failed again The type of disc I used for all three processes was a DVD R DVD plus R which is writeable only once and cannot be written to again And I got the same error each of the three times I tried Error reading data AM Text File DVDPlusRW cpp Line Start write address at LBA DVD high compatibility mode Yes AM TRANSFER - File Reader cpp Line Error reading data Any help or useful references would be highly appreciated I am completely new to dvd burning I have had problems before burning CD-R RWs but that was only a couple of times about a year ago This is a different drive and a different burner nbsp

For the last few days every time I try to burn a dvd the writing software is going through the entire burn process and telling me it has succeeded and yet at the end the disk is still completely blank. It does not matter what I am burning or what i am burning it with I always get the same result. Nero, Windows Vista itself and Convert X To dvd are all doing it. I seem to be able to burn cds still, but dvd burning has stopped. The drive will still read disks that i burned previously.

I have been copying my home-burned DVDs as a test of their readability and I have discovered that factory DVDs are read at four- to ten times the speed of home-burned.

Example: I did a direct diskcopy of the Sony software DVD that came with my burner. I then copied that disk to my hard disk to test its readability and it took easily over 30 minutes.

I then copied the original factory DVD (containing exact duplicate data) and the same process took about 8 minutes.

This copy process varies from disk to disk; but, the time comparisons are always exceedingly in favor of the factory DVD by a factor of four or more.

Is this normal?

Where can I find more data on this?

A:DVD drive won't read NEW DVDs it has burned

Hi there

DVD's should be FINALIZED before they will read in different DVD drives / standard DVD players etc. You might still have a session open on Multi-session.

Check also HOW you are burning DVD's - there's quite a few different things -- for example data (as a DVD-ROM), as an .ISO as a VIDEO DVD as a DVD rip etc etc. DVD authoring also requires a different setup such as "cloning" or copying DVD's. Also are the DVD's Double layer or what. All sorts of possible things here.

Subject is a bit too complex without more info.

Used Nero and new DVD-RW drive to burn lots of data to DVD-RW discs as data discs. New DVDs will read perfectly in other PC. My PC will not recognise / read them. Explorer simply sees no files.

I have been trying to solve this problem over a month. I've been copying over 5 years without problem but now I am having this problem, that dvds are showing pixels on my standalone dvd player. To make sure that the standalone works fine, I tried copies with another computer and they play fine on it.

I always used Maxell media without problem. Now I tried Verbatim and TDK media to make sure if the media is not the problem and they showed pixels as well.

After deleting unwanted and old software from the computer I scanned computer for viruses, I replaced the dvd burner with a new one, I replaced the memory with a new one of 1gB, I replaced the SATA cable and the cable that is connected with the burner and the mother board as well. But I still have the problem!

Any help or idea what can be the problem?

Here is my system information:

A:Burned DVDs Show Pixels

Pixellation usually occurs when the quality setting is too low in your dvd creation software.
Choosing a lower quality increases the amount of compression and this in turn means more detail and sharpness is lost. The resulting video can then appear pixellated.

I regularly record TV programmes and then save them on to blank disks via my DVD recorder, to play on my PC. Recently when I have tried to play them back, they are not recognized and so will not play. To my knowledge I have not made any relevant alterations to my system, so am at a loss as to why I cannot play them. I always make sure they are finalized, so ithat is not the problem. I have also tried to play DVDs that I have owned for some time which up to now have always played perfectly on my PC but now do not. Has anyone any thoughts as to how I can deal with this, please?

I use Acronis True Image 11 for backing up, all from the bootable CD, I don't have Acronis installed. After creating an image I verify it with Acronis. I also like to burn the image to DVDs and verify them on DVD also. When I burn them to DVDs with Vista, Acronis wont recognize them to verify or restore. If I burn them with Nero Acronis will verify them and can restore them.

Any images burned to DVDs would already have been verified while on the HD before burning to DVDs.

Any body know what the difference is between burning them with Nero verses Vista in relation to Acronis not recognizing the images burned to DVDs by Vista?

Since I've never used the built-in disk burning capabilities of either XP or Vista, I cannot be sure, but it would seem though that the disk being burned with Vista is not following standard protocols, which is why Acronis is having a hard time reading those disks.

If you really must use Vista to burn the disks, then do slowly, and mark the options to ensure compatibility across a wide range of platforms. Or, just continue using Nero to burm the CDs.

One question though - When creating backups, doesn't Acronis have an option to burn directly to DVD?

I have been having trouble burning DVDs that will play on a regular DVD player. They play perfectly for about 15 minutes then start skipping and freezing and finally stop completely. These same DVDs will play perfectly the whole way through on a computer or XBox 360. I have used numerous software programs and 2 different DVD burners because I thought something was wrong with my hardware. Now I don't think the problem ever was the hardware because I replaced my drive with a Sony Optiarc and then bought another Sony Optiarc just in case I had a bad one. I am out of ideas so any help would be appreciated.

Hi I believe it would be a format / codec issue. You would need to read the types of disc the TVR can play and then create a disk to match.  This may involve downloading additional software etc. So if you could give some more details then perhaps someone here could offer more help.

Minor issue here. I have a lite on dvd recorder that came with a nero 6. Recently I upgraded to nero 7 ultra and now I notice that when I playback a burned dvd in my dvd player that it cannot fast forward over 2x the speed. It simply freezes up then return to the original menu. Before I could fast forward a scene up to 8x the speed(the maximum of my dvd player).
I tried changing the settings just before I burn my dvd. First making sure that it was a the maximum setting. Then i tried to change the write speed setting to 8x. No change.

Hello everyone,
I have a problem.
2 years ago, I burned 2 CD's.
Today I put them in my laptops' DVD drive.
When I opend the disks, an empty window opened, showing no data whatsoever.
I know the CD's are still good, and I know my DVD drive is good.
Any idea on what is happening?
The CD's were burned on a MAC. I have opened these CD's on other Wintel machines before.
I am currently using an inspiron 9100 laptiom, with a DVD+ drive.
Thanks for all your help,

If your other computer is not a Mac you m ay not be able to view them. Still- did you format them before you burnt them? If you dont format them they wont work.

All of a sudden, when I burn cd's on Nero (OEM version) The song titles not showing up. All I get are "track 1, track 2," etc. I have no idea what is happending. I have tried it on a couple of cd's and it keeps doing this. when I "add" tunes, the titles are there; they are definitely THERE.

any ideas? all I get are cd's with 15 tracks labeled by number...!

A:Why are song titles not showing up on cd's burned on Nero?

From what you have wrote, an Audio CD will show as Track 01, 02 etc because when the player is check the CCDB for the information, it will not get it because it's a burned disc and not an original. Now if it was a DATA CD then that's different.

Hi guys. I am not sure if the problem with my DVD burner is a software related one or a hardware related one. I am using HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS70 SCSI CdROM device. Of late, most of the times when I am trying to burn a disc, it shows Program Memory Area Update Failure. The errors are random. At times I can burn 2-3 discs before the error pops up. At times it happens during burning the first disc. The type of files I am burning also has no effect as the error occurred as I attempted to write various types of disc. I sed ImgBurn and Nero but the problem persisted. What is the problem and what do I need to do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

This is my 1st post here so i'm hoping its in the right place.

I'm burning some shows I downloaded, .avi files and using the drag and drop method. The files are all numbered 1-30 lets say so they are in order but when they are burned and i'm viewing them on my dvd player they are all out of order.

There doesnt seem to be any type of pattern to the #s the way they are burned and i've tried a few different settings like sorting by name, seeing if the file sizes could have made it that way but doesnt seem to be that.

Any idea what I could be doing wrong?

The files are divx and I only have 1 divx dvd player so I cant really check another dvd player to see if its the player so right now i'm guessing its the burn process.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

A:Files burned out of order

Hi Debbie and welcome to Vista Forums

Try prefixing the filenames by the relevant file number. For example, if the 15th file is Test it would become 15Test. For files numbered 1-9, add a leading zero so that file 5 becomes 05Name, etc. You might also need to refer to this Tutorial: Sort Order - Numbers in File and Folder Names to ensure that the files are sorted in the desired order.

I'm having a lot of trouble burning with Nero-I have a TDK veloCD burner.

When I burn data to a CDRW (such as a word document or a power point presentation), it's burned as a "READ-ONLY" file. I have made sure that the it's the "finalized " version, but I'm unable to go back and change the data without having to save it again to my C drive.

What am I doing wrong?

A:Nero read only burned files

You arenít doing anything wrong. Mastering software will always make files read only. Most people use it for backup and donít keep working files on CD. So it isnít usually a problem.

There are several ways to get around it.

You can compile everything you are going to burn in a folder and zip the folder. When you unzip the folder back on your computer the files will not be read only.

You can use a freeware utility to batch convert an entire folder back to archive on your HD. ReadOnly:

If you only grab an occasional file that you want to modify just right click the file, chose Properties and change the attribute to Archive.

If you are constantly working with files on the CD you could format the RW for packet writing where you use the burner as another drive in Windows Explorer. Packet writing does not change the file attribute to read only. Plan on eventually coming back to the board to ask how to recover the data you lost if you consistently use packet writing to RW.

Welcome To TSF.

It could be that the files were no correctly copyed to the disk, It could be a problems with the Disk or the Program that you used, e.g. Nero, Roxio.

Hi I hope this will fit into the troubleshooting section of the Forum I'm writing a long text and keeping it divided in chapters i e I have created a different Word file for each chapter I keep a copy of the whole folder on my laptop files Previous DVD-R on burned of versions and back it up on a Kingston memory stick and on a DVD-R I had a shock yesterday when I found out that one of my chapters was a kb file and it was in fact a blank Word page I have no idea how this happened I went to check my back-ups and both the Kingston memory stick and the DVD-R show the same kb version of the file I've recently changed laptop and the files I have on it were copied from the memory stick so I think there is no point in trying to find an older version of the 'empty file' on the laptop's hard drive I think my only hope might be the DVD-R And this is when you will see that unfortunately I am not at all an expert so I can only describe what I was doing To put my files on the DVD-R I was simply dragging and dropping them in Windows and then use the basic command 'Burn to disc' I don't think I ever closed or finalised the disc as I was able to keep writing and copying files on it The software would ask me if I wanted to replace files with the same name and I would say yes So now I have a DVD-R Previous versions of files burned on DVD-R that has the latest version of my folder with the kb file However whilst the folder on my laptop is Mb in size the DVD-R that allegedly contains the same folder says I have used Mb of it The DVD is a DVD-R not DVD-RW Does this mean that the previous versions of my 'empty file' are still there in the layers of the DVD-R somewhere If so how do I retrieve them Or can you actually erase a file from a DVD-R by copying one with the same name on it If so what are the Mb burned on my disc I'd be extremely grateful for any help advice and explanation I am slightly desperate to retrieve my file if there is any chance I am now using Windows btw and I have tried the most basic things like looking for previous versions of files etc but I don't get any joy My only hope lies in those MB Thank you very much for reading

A:Previous versions of files burned on DVD-R

DVD-R can only be written to "once" so after you burned it, it cannot be overwritten, you can only rewrite data on the DVD-RW..

I would try "recuva" software on the DVD/ USB, if you haven't written much to the USB since the 0kb file you noticed it may be able to recover the corrupted file (given it is corrupted and not failed in copying the data over).

If the CD was never burned, those files were never "in" a folder. They MAY have been saved in a temporary file somewhere, but it only looks like they are in a folder prior to a burn.

This happened because your method was wrong, it seems. Had you first copied the files/folders to a folder on the "C:\" drive, they would have been safe. Then you could have transfered them to CD.

Yes, the burnt files are exactly the same when copied back from the DVD to your PC, easiest way to do this is a program called DVD Decryptor. Even tho the burnt DVD wont have any copy protection (unless you added some when you burnt it!), DVD Decryptor is highly efficient and speedy at copying files to you PC from a DVD movie.

A:Trouble getting burned files to play on bluray player?

If they are MP3 files, does the Blu-Ray player play MP3 files? That may be the problem and if it is, you will have to convert them to wav files and then burn a standard "audio" CD.

However, the MP3 files concern me as they are not full fidelity and if you are trying to calibrate something you need the full fidelity audio signal. Converting an MP3 to wav will not restore full fidelity, it can only be as good as the MP3 file is. If the site you are downloading from has wav files, download and use them, bypass the MP3 files (which are "something less" than full fidelity).

I have a recording studio so I'm well attuned to fidelity of audio/music files.

Hi, Everyone,

I bought a new computer about a month ago. (HP Pavilion dv6985se). I began the process of burning a copy of the system files, but, stopped when I realized I did not have the right discs and deciding I was just going to buy it from HP. Now, I am stuck with those files waiting to be burned in my D drive. When I open the folder, it warns me not to tamper with these files because I could delete other files in the process that could prevent me from restoring the system files in case of a failure. Is there anyway I can delete those files? I don't want to continue the burning as it would have taken 17 discs. I appreciate it if someone could answer this for me. Thanks!

XP easily lets me transfer files that fit on one DVD to my DVD. I would like to be able to transfer larger files (e.g., 32 GB) to/from the DVD. When I try simple copy with XP it tells me the file is too big - it obviously isn't going to fit on one DVD disk. If it is possible to make such transfers, is there a way to verify that the transfer is perfect?

A:Big (e.g., 32 GB) files and DVDs

I must be missing something ... if a file is 32 GB, and the DVD holds 4.7 GB how are you going to be able to fit the file on?

What is the file type? This is a key issue

Is it compressable? A compression ratio of 7:1 would be needed and this is highly improbable.

Also, Nero will not burn MPG, MPEG, WMV, or MPE files so my Cucusoft converter is of no use.

Is there better software I should buy? Or do I need to download specific plugins or codecs?

I am a complete novice here. Thanks!

Doesn't automatically ask to burn when new DVD or Cd is 'injected'.
This just started happening for no reason whatsoever.

Why everything online has to be so complicated?
I bet you think that^^ all the time, huh?

Anyways, Win7, 64, thanks for any light you can shed here...

A:Burning DVDs, does not close out files when done.

What program are you using to burn the DVD?

I have a massive amount of photos I need to back up, so burning them to DVDs sounds like the cheapest solution. Each time I've tried dragging the files down to the E: drive window, it says "Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file." The DVD is already inserted correctly, and I've tried this with photos, music, and Word documents, (both in folders, and as individual files) all with the same result. (The type of DVD I'm using is Memorex DVD+R.)

Any ideas on what's going on here?

A:Problems with burning files to DVDs

I've had problems using Explorer to burn CD's. For some reason it doesn't want to allow you to drag too many (or too large) files at once.

Try doing just a single file, and see if this is not your problem.

Otherwise, I'd recommend using Nero, as Explorer is not very well-respected.

I Have numerous Korean , Chinese, and Japanese Avi movies with .Sub and .str file extentions that run along side movies when i play in BSplayer. I would like to eventually burn these movies onto DVD with the subtitle file so it runs in sync with the film.

Has anyone burned movies like these sucessfully onto DVD that worked Perfectly?? If so what software did you use, What settings did you use and what Blank DVDs work best?? I currently use ARITA DVD- .

Hey guys, a while ago, maybe a few months ago, the blue screen kept coming up whenever I'd start up my laptop. I eventually had to backup all my information. It was 32ish GB worth. I now have 8 or 9 DVDs with all my documents, programs, and music on them. Since then, I've reinstalled a few of the programs I already have on the DVDs. Could someone tell me how to I guess restore using all 8 or 9 of my DVDs.?

Or if possible, are there any programs I can install that'll allow me to look for specific programs on my backup DVDs.? I'm mainly concerned with my Itunes account, and I know for a fact that the iTunes programs and music and stuff is on more than 1 disc.

A:Don't know what to do when restoring files from backup DVDs.

With most backup programs you'd start off with disc # 1 and just wait for the prompt to insert the next disc. However, I think many people on this Forum strongly suggest NOT using discs for backup and instead recommend an external hard drive. If one disc didn't burn correctly the entire backup is effectively ruined.

I've reinstalled a few of the programs I already have on the DVDs . . . are there any programs I can install that'll allow me to look for specific programs on my backup DVDs.?

That's another problem using discs for backup. You can only search one disk at a time. Whatever procedure you used to find the programs you've already reinstalled would work. Don't need third party programs.

Hi. I'm looking for a program for Win 8 that can fit files and folders to multiple DVDs and minimize free space. It should be able to split folders but preferably not files. I'd like to avoid using an archiving program except for files that are larger than a DVD.

I tried some programs found online, but they can only split files while folders must stay intact. Others can only split one folder at a time. Finally, I tried the disc spanning feature in some burning software but they don't appear to be efficient in minimizing free space. I sampled one and for the first disc it used 4 GB. I did things manually and for the first disc I was able to use 4.475 GB.

I have a Windows 8.1 Desktop.
I installed a 2.5" WD second hard drive, formatted it and all was fine.
I then removed the 2.5" HD, put it in an external usb case and transferred files from my Windows XP laptop.
When I put the HD back into the desktop, there were no files on the disk, said something like 951GB / 951GB free.
I removed it again and checked using the XP laptop / usb case and all the files are shown.
All HDs on the desktop / laptop are formatted NTFS.

Over the past few weeks all of my video files play hesitantly and jerkily. Some files freeze, then release, freeze a little while later, unfreeze, then lock up that. Even when playing DVDs, in either CD-Rom drawer, the DVD plays jerkily.

This problem is the same no matter which video player I use. Media Player Classic seems to work a bit better, but even that jerks and stops and starts.

This seems to be a system problem of some sort.

Please, can someone help me? If not, is there a brainstorm website to try and fix this jerking?


A:DVDs and Video Files Play Jerkily

I have just uninstalled something called Windows Essential Media Codex pack and the jerking of the video files has stopped!

I believe, from my limited research, that there are too many codecs installed and they are fighting with each other.

I will not mark this thread as SOLVED until I work some more with my video files.

I got a copy of windows 7 professional and it will not allow me to just upgrade to it from vista home basic so I have to back up a lot of random stuff onto DVDs. I 136GBs of steam games and I would rather not have to download them all again once I install windows 7. Is there a way I can divide my 136gb steam apps folder amongst a bunch of DVDs then extract it into a new steam installation in windows 7? I would rather not use 7z to make a bunch of seperate files because it would take so long. Though if you know of settings that would allow it to compress everything into a bunch of seperate files faster please tell me!

A:Is there software that backs up any files onto a bunch of DVDs?

That's going to be a lot of DVD's. You don't have a spare hard drive sitting around that you can use for backups? How about just buying a cheap HD and using that for the OS and the current drive for games/files?

A:How do I BURN large ISO files into MULTIPLE CDs (not DVDs)

CDs are not enough for a Windows 7 installer, you need to use a DVD drive, or a pendrive with at least 3GB free for it, as it won't fit in a smaller drive at all.

More generally, ISO files are an exact image of the final disc when burned, it cannot be splited into smaller discs. Moreover, the Windows installer is not aware of a "split installer" and won't know how to switch discs at all. A CD drive is not enough to support a Windows 7 installer.

Hi all, I need help if I can change the view of how the Windows Explorer display files on my cds & dvds coz' there is a small irritating IE icon attach on each files e.g. .exe .txt .rar .doc .xls.... that blocks the icon of the files. Whether I change the view to list, thumbnails, details, icons. This started when I bought a new pc with a Vista pre-installed and use nero to burn and back-up my files/documents/pictures. And when I return back my pc and have Win XP Pro SP2 installed coz' Vista is too irritating due to UAC and some apps conflicts this problem occur while trying to browse the cds & dvds which I burn when I have Vista as OS. Is there a way to change this? How do I get rid of the IE icon attach within the files? Thanks in advance.

I'm having a problem. It seems that Windows freezes entirely (so you can't even move the mouse cursor) a few seconds after I stop playback of DVDs or DVD .VOB files. I've tried with both K-Lite Codec Pack and ffdshow and the same thing happens on both. It happens on both VLC and Media Player Classic. The problem does not occur with any other type of video files.

Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?

I had to perform a Recovery procedure on my laptop which uses Windows 7 64 bit OS. I created backup on three DVDs, and now can't figure out how to reinstall these files. I have checked online for a solution to my dilemma, but the instructions are confusing, and the options availaable to me in the windows that open don't seem to match the instructions listed. I will appreciate any guidance that anyone can provide me to resolve this issue.

A:Reinstalling files from backup DVDs after performing a Recovery

For people to help you need to provide more information including:
- brand of laptop
- more details on the type of backup. 3 DVDs suggest a factory restore backup. In this case you need to make sure your personal data has been backed up because a factory restore will get rid of all your personal data and return the laptop to an "as bought" condition.
