BSOD While Burning/Ripping DVDs

Q: BSOD While Burning/Ripping DVDs

I have no idea what is happening. Every time I try to RIP a DVD and burn it I get the BSOD "after" the burn has completed. No problems ripping just after the process has completed. I have BSOD using ConvertXtoDVD 4 and 1Click DVD Copy.

Preferred Solution: BSOD While Burning/Ripping DVDs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: BSOD While Burning/Ripping DVDs

All the crashdumps are inconclusive, but they show an extremely consistent behavior (all completely identical), which definitely shows a driver bug somewhere. I recommend turning on Driver Verifier. Do not select the following checks: Force Pending I/O Requests, IRP Logging, and Low Resource Sim. Make sure to restart system after you finish setup. If you experience a boot loop afterwards, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 prior to Windows logo and disable DV there. Get the system to crash once or twice afterwards (like by burning a disc), and send us the crashdumps.

Hi all,

Looking for a little help. I have a HP ProBook 4530s that I just got a couple months ago and have not been able to rip/burn any DVDs since. I am using DVDFab 8 (same version I used on my old laptop with no issues). The DVD rips to my HD and my laptp ejects the disk. While DVD fab is displaying a message that it is searching for writable media at my DVD drive, I receive a BSOD.

I have attached the log files for you to look at. I have seen some other threads online with people with the same laptop with the same issue but have never seen a solution.

Any help would be appreciated!

I was using and Ripping DVDs DVDDecrypter others recently reading a thread about problems people were having ripping DVDs using DVD Decrypter and the like A moderator closed the thread saying that Ripping DVDs using DVDDecrypter and others the subject was about stealing Ripping DVDs using DVDDecrypter and others movies commiting illegal acts and that forum rules do not allow this It is NOT Illegal to rip a DVD that you have purchased and own and make copies for your own personal use The courts have made the decision that purchasing the DVD is purchasing the license to make copies of your property for your own use to make backups so the kids don t destroy the original to make copies in varying formats for playback on different machines etc Many other things are illegal e g borrowing someone else s DVD and ripping it to make a copy for yourself ripping a DVD that you own and then distributing copies giving or selling and more but making copies of a DVD you purchased and own for your own personal use IS LEGAL so using ripping software is not in and of itself committing an illegal act nbsp

A:Ripping DVDs using DVDDecrypter and others

The Digital Millennium Act has made it clearly illegal to attempt to thwart any protection scheme. That makes "ripping" DVD's that are protected illegal. The content of the DVD belongs to the owner and they have the ultimate say on who can use it for what (in keeping with regulations). The only thing you own is the plastic the DVD is made of. The contents are someone else's.

Hi there I'm now going to rip my old DVD's - This to me seems the best approach On ONE set of HDD's -- ripping commercial DVD (Movies - DVDs) will probably need TWO -- use AnyDVD to convert the DVD to an iso identical to the original in every way except de-regionalized and de-crypted so it plays anywhere -- Windows mounts HDD ISO's even if you don't have a DVD drive and VLC will play them This HDD I'll use as Acrchive On another set rip the DVD via HANDBRAKE to mp mkv so I can watch on my mobile NAS etc via streaming or even copying to local usb stick or even micro DVD ripping (Movies - commercial DVDs) sdHC card DVD ripping (Movies - commercial DVDs) in the phone Handbrake can rip to very good quality -- so I really don't need the HDD ISO's --it's just me wanting to have a copy of the original After I've copied ripped all the DVD's I'm going to donate them to a charity shop as I won't ever use the old discs any more I've about DVD's - a TB drive should be enough for the ISO's - certainly TB will be more than enough Now my question is Handbrake really good enough for making decent compressed rips or should I use something else Cheers jimbo

A:DVD ripping (Movies - commercial DVDs)

I used to use "DVDFab" to remove anything extra from disks, like languages, extra titles, menus etc. and that made the rest much smaller. I think I used DrDivx to make avi files from so shortened dvd. This one Download VidCoder - MajorGeeks promisses to make Handbrake easier to use. I shudder at Handbrake use.
Legality of it I 'm not sure of but just heard that in UK and some other EU countries they made it completely legal to make backups of MM disks as long as they are not commercially distributed.

I would tell the shop doing the work to give you the data in some other format then DVD. One less step you have to do. Otherwise you are going to be converting and reconverting it back to DVD again and again.

If this is not kosher, please let me know, but I see ads everywhere for DVD ripping software that will get by copy protection and rip/burn DVDs. I am a teacher and I like to show the kids video clips from various movies as examples of this or that. Some of the scenes/movies I'd like to show contain profanities or other inappropriate details that I'd like to edit out by the usual splicing or whatnot that any good video creation software does easily. Obviously the problem has been that protected DVDs make this difficult.

All I want is to be able to rip a DVD, then edit out something here and there, mainly in short scenes.

I see lots of ads for ripping/burning software but I'm not sure they'll allow me to edit scenes.

Thanks for any advice!

I have recently been trying to capture images and rip sounds from DVDs but i have not had much success, i have PowerDVD (I think it is 5) which does not have an image capture function, and normal Print Screen does not work, is there a freeware program that anyone is aware of?

Also, several DVD ripping programs are available free, does anybody know if any of them can just rip the sound to WAV or MP3, as i think this would be a very useful function to have.

:chef: LMoore :chef:

A:Ripping Sounds and Images from from DVDs

PowerDVD does have a 'capture frame' function, just hit 'C' when you want to capture. You can specify where it captures the images in PowerDVD settings, I think the default is to clipboard.

As for audio, I think the easiest (or should I say least difficult?) is SmartRipper in its stream processing mode, but it doesn't convert the audio track to WAV or MP3, just copies it, so you need to convert it with another application. See guides at Doom9.

You should start with the basics.
What software are you using to rip the music CDs?
Are you receiving errors during the ripping process?
If so, what specifically are the errors?
Does the exact same error come up on all disks?

What kind of MP3 player does the truck have? Are you looking to rip to an iPod and connect that to the truck's audio system?

Hi. . .

I have not had the opportunity to edit movies, but have found that most Vista systems have some type of movie editor - maybe a trial from your system manufacturer.

See if one is on your system - click on START and type movie. Look at the search results uptop under Programs. If one is there click on it and see.

I've used Musicmatch for about 3 years now and all of sudden on some of the Cd's i'm ripping ,it reads them so the last song has some of the song just before it on it..Example
track 11 should be 5 min track 12 should 4 min long..It plays and rips track 11 4 min 30 sec and track 12 4 min 30 sec long..It doesn't do this on all cd's.

Support from Musicmatch has tried to fix it and we even unistalled and re-installed with no luck.

I've tried 4 other music programs and media player also...They all play and rip the Cd's the way they should be..

Any way if someone knows what i should check and see on my computer i do that.

If not could you tell me the best program that everone uses..Maybe one that is pretty cheap.

Hi Everyone just a quick question....

I want to rip my dvd collection to my external hard drive. I have been advised to use DVD Shrink to rip the movie which seems to work fine... I will then use Guardian Knot to convert the DVD files to .AVI format.

However in the future I will want to burn the AVI file to a blank DVD, but with subtitles.

Is there a way in the above programs - or does anyone know of a program - that will allow me to rip the subtitles ftom the dvd so i can save it in the same folder with the AVI - and also how would i burn the AVI along with the subtitle file so that it can be played in a regular DVD player.

I need it to be able to burn mp3's onto a CD (without having to manually convert them to WAV files or whatever)...

I thaught it may be the mp3 player itself but it synced up with my friends computer just fine. I've since learned to live without syncing but no burning or ripping come on! any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are the dvds that are burning in 6 mins, burning at higher speeds than normal? (above 20x) Sometimes faster burning speed can reduce the quality of dvds you burn from your computer, try burning at a slower speed to see if there is any improvement maybe?

You have to find out in which form the film is posted in. Most films are uploaded in a form of compression to enable people to download them quicker. You need to post here the type of compression used in the films that you cant play. For instance, if its an AVI file, the film will only play in a DVD Player that supports AVI. You can convert the files into another type of compression, or you can convert it to Vob files, which all DVDs are produced in. But if you post the details, I will try and help you more . Delgado

A:DVD+R or DVD-R for burning DVDs?

Really? Because I recall hearing the opposite. I don't believe either is better than the other. I do recommend burning at the lowest speed possible and maybe buying from the second cheapest brand. If you do that, you should't have a problem.

I have brought some Memorex DVD+RWs but I am having trouble burning DVDs.

The problem is that the PC will not recognise the DVD+RW disc. So every time I go to 'write these files to CD' I get stuck on the wizard when it asks me to insert the DVD, I have done but the PC is not recognising the disc.

I did it before using nero, I put a CD-R in and using Nero I made a CD which played video on my DVD player, but I am not sure if this is the same.

I looked on Device Manager and I have a SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-348B. I am running Windows XP Home.

Can I actually burn DVDs on this PC?

If not, what do I need to download/buy to get my PC recognising the DVD+RW discs and enabling me to burn a DVD.

i have a friend who believes that if he buys a dvdr or dvdrw, he can just rent a dvd movie (ex// the matrix), burn it, then give it back, thus owning a dvd movie at the fraction of the cost (or borrowing someone else's movie, buring it and giving it back). I dont believe it is possibe. Is he rite or Im rite?

A:Burning DVDs

Firstly, what you are describing IS piracy, IS copyright infringement, and IS illegal.

And even if your friend gets a DVD writer, there is still CSS encryption on the DVD. This means that, for example, if he was to copy the files from the DVD onto his hard drive and then try to play it, it would not work very well at all, because 1/4 of the content he had copied to his HDD would be gibberish.

If he wanted to copy DVDs, he would need a piece of software which strips the CSS encryption from the files as they are written to the hard drive before he burned them to a DVD. I believe that such software, although available here and there perhaps, is also illegal now.

There is software around to rip DVDs to Divx files to burn to CDs.

Lastly, I don't believe that this "friend" of yours exists, and that in fact you are talking about yourself. So why not come clean about that??

But if your question is, is this possible? Yes. It is. If you strip the CSS encryption away whilst writing the files from the DVD to your hard drive, and then burn those to a DVD disk, yes. I have seen it done.

Ok to start with you can't burn dvd movies that are copyright. For example like The Hulk or Spiderman. As it would be illegal. Now if its home movies you are after to burn new copies now you can do that. And i don't think your computer has a dvd burner. If it did it would say something like dvd writer. now i might be wrong though. Now i have read your computer has a dvd reader though.

Hi all. I've got an HP Pavilion 750c, 1.8ghz, 80gb hard drive about half full, and I recently installed an HP 530i dvd burner. The burner burns cd's just fine, but I can't get a DVD to burn to save my life. I'm using captured home video, BTW.

I have downloaded the InterVideo WinDVD Creator 2 trial version, and it seems to burn OK, but when I go to play the disc, the colors are all dark and wrong. I've tried to play them with RealPlayer, InterVideo DVD, and WMP.

I have an internal CD-RW, and wanted a DVD burner. I bought an external LG GSA-E40N/L. Works great.
When I get a new PC, a DVD burner will be included. Thus, I will have 2 DVD burners. Or should I ask for no DVD burner on a new PC? A DVD-ROM or a CD-RW instead?
My question is this: I want to have 2 DVDs of copies of photos, work, etc. Is it ok to burn to an internal CD-R/DVD and an external DVD simultaneously? I want to save time, and burning at a slow speed such as 16x would take too long if burning one at a time. Besides, what's the point of having 2 DVD burners then?

If you dragged and dropped, you made a UDF format DVD. If you see the option in DVDFlick to burn, go directly to that instead of burning the files separately by another method and that will work fine. You can use another burner, but make it the standard ISO format if you do.

A:problems with burning dvds

Hi Gbizkit and welcome to TSF !

At what speed does your burner read regular DVD's (DVD you bought) ? Are you still using the same media brand as before ? Can you read the DVD's you burned at the normal speed on another computer ?

What's your burner brand and model ? If you don't know you can find out in the device manager (start => run => devmgmt.msc) under DVD/CD-rom drives. Check on the burner's manufacturer website whether the media you're using are fully compatible with your burner.

Use kprobe to test the quality of the burning. Ideally PIF should be under 5 and PI under 50. If it's more than ten times that then you should seriously consider writing at a slower speed to ensure that you'll still be able to read those DVD's in 3 or 4 years.

What settings did you change in the registry ?

hi everyone having trouble with some dvds that wont analyze 100% therfore i cannot burn.tried dvd shrink, dvdfab5, clone and express burn. do i need a different program for these specific dvds. thanks tanyapm

A:Problems burning DVDs

if you're trying to make backups of movies then use ripit4me with dvd shrink and dvddcrypter

bear in mind not all dvds can be hacked, but I have not found one yet that ripit4me cannot break. Of course this is only for legitimate back up purposes. Anything else would be illegal.

I have had a laptop for 6 months, with a DVDRW, has been working fine until last week. When you look at My Computer is shows the drive as a DVD-RW, as soon as you put in a blank DVD to burn an image, the icon on My Computer changes to a CD-ROM and does not allow me to burn a movie.

I have tried different media no success
Tried deleting the driver and getting XP to pick it up no success.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My dvd writer came with Sonic myDVD authoring software. I have been able to write files to a DVD using EasyCDCreator fine but when I try and write a video DVD of files I have got from the web it imports them but when I try to write them it says they are incompatible!

Do you know of any other good DVD Writing software that lets you record video DVDs
and will these DVDs be able to be viewed on a home DVD player

I use DVD+R discs

Does it say why they're incompatible?

Is it possible to burn a DVD from video stored on my hard drive without using a program such as windows moviemaker ?? Thanks !!

A:Solved: Burning DVDs

Yes, but not if you want to play the DVD. You can burn any file to DVD, but most video files need to be encoded or converted to the right format before you can burn a DVD that will play.

When i burn a dvd in nero, it just doesnt seem right. the read buffer stays at 100% but the write buffer goes up and down constantly. to 99% then 27% then back to 83% and random numbers like that.. I have 8x TDK dvd+r and when i burnt at 8x i got pretty much everything was a dud (a coaster) and last night i burnt at 4x and it took a lot longer than nero predicted and it was fine... but when i burnt 4x i actually saved it to an image then burnt the image onto the disc with nero because i was sick of wasting dvd's so i tried a new method. I was just worrying about the write buffer mainly. i think that is affecting burn time and performance. my specs:

3.2Ghz Pentium 4 (HT)
1GB ddr400 RAM
Gigabyte Technology DVD±RW 16x16

This might turn out to be fairly long winded, please bear with me!

A little bit of history:
My DVD-RW drive conked out a couple of months ago, and I had an engineer come and replace it (under extended warranty). I used the drive at least once after that to burn a DVD. I tried burning a DVD a couple of weeks ago (Nero 7) and got an error message, but didn't have time to investigate. Tried burning an audio CD last week (Instant CD+DVD) and got an error message, but was again pushed for time so didn't investigate. I've been working six days a week for the past couple of months and I finally have a weekend off so here I am!

Ah, apparently this message is too long, so I'll post the other half in a reply.

Hi, I've recently been trying to burn some movies onto DVD but with both windows dvd maker and nero 7 the program stops working when i add the video files, does anyone kno what the problem is.

This is the application crash log for Windows DVD Maker :

Faulting application DVDMaker.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x479193d1, faulting module ac3filter.acm_unloaded, version, time stamp 0x46c6a5b4, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x042bb5ed, process id 0x18f4, application start time 0x01c9150b75b891e1.

And this is the log for Nero:

Faulting application NeroVision.exe, version, time stamp 0x455d63b8, faulting module unknown, version, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0754b5ed, process id 0x125c, application start time 0x01c9150bad7d9bc1.

If anybody is able to shed light on the issue it would be much appreciated.

Any comment on this site's claim that you can "burn DVD's to CDs ... entire DVD movie without any loss of DVD quality":

Has anyone actually tried it?

I have a Canon Vixia HFS100 Camcorder (with SD Card). I was able to transfer the videos from my SD card to my Lenovo Laptop with Windows 8. It does have a DVD/CD tray for burning discs. The problem is that I can't figure out how to burn DVDs of my videos. I have a Roxio Creator program from my previous computer that I loaded onto my Lenovo but I still cannot figure out how to transfer my uploaded camcorder videos. I have no problem burning CD's from my ITunes library.

I've got an HP laptop w/ Vista on it. I tried to burn some DVDs and here's what happens every time:

1) Insert DVD, auto loads in HP Quickplay, cancel out.
2) File Explorer > Computer: Select DVD Drive and click "Burn to disc"
3) Window pops up: "There are no files to burn"
4) File Exlpore DVD, select all, then click "burn to disc" > same window pops up.

then I open WMP, go to the burn screen and try to drag the files to the drag and drop section but nothing moves. I've tried some other things but everytime it always ends with the window popping up saying "There are no files to burn." HELP! I just want to use my DVD Burner...

A:Help burning DVDs w/ WMP on Vista

Windows Media Player can't burn DVDs. You should be able to burn them through Windows Explorer. Are you sure the laptop has a DVD burner and not just a CD burner?

A:ISO help with burning dvds with windows 7

OK, first has the DVD-R already have files burned on it? You can only use a DVD-R once, unless you chose to not close the session after burning. Next, what software are you using to burn the DVD? This may seem obvious, but do you have a DVD/RW drive?
Be sure you are using a blank DVD-R that is a name brand not a generic (Phillips, Sony, TDK etc) Try using the free program CDBurner XP and choose to make a Data Disc, and drop your photos into that.
