DVD-R on a CD-RW Drive
 
Today i was bored so i went out and bought a blank dvd-r just to see if it would work on my cd-rw drive just for the heck of it. To my suprise it worked! My drive is a GCE 8420B. I recorded a kvcd on the dvd-r succesfully. The only thing was it took almost a whole hour just to burn it to the disc. Has anyone else ever tried this?

The timing is correct, I have a 2X LG DVD Writer and it takes about 1 hour to burn a full DVD-R.

When you say a "KVCD", which flavour of template? One for VCD, SVCD or DVD?

Paul0889 07-13-2003 04:23 PM

I did the kvcd*3 template only i changed it to mpeg 2 and i raied the cq to 100 and the mihn. bitrate to 3000 and my ma. bitrate to 3000. i was just testing it out to see if it worked

Paul0889 07-13-2003 06:50 PM

audi2honda 07-13-2003 07:30 PM

What? This can't be true.

Has anyone else been able to duplicate these results?

totonho03 07-13-2003 07:38 PM

Hello Paul0889:

I believe that you are answering the questions as they are posted in this thread. Would it be possible for you to give us a list of your detailed steps? ie, the programs you used to create your kvcd disc, how you burnt it, which program you used to burn your creation, etc, etc. I believe that I can paste the steps that so far you have posted, but it will help me a lot to see the entire picture in one frame.

Thanks a lot

My CD-RW drive is a GCE 8420B and my two dvd players are a Sony DVP NS-300 and a Norcent 300. I encoded a movie called May into a kvcd using the 528*480 template but changed it to MPEG 2. I raised the min. bitrate to 3000 and the max. bitrate to 3000. It all looked etremely good and in fact it looked eactly like the original. When it was done, the file was about 1.2GB. Then i opened nero and set it up as if i was buring an svcd. Only in the preferences section, i changed the format to DVD-R and then i burned at 8x. It plays great on my Sony only near the end, it had a few odd blocks pop up. But on my norcent 300, it played beautifully without a single problem.

incredible, fantastic, great :!:

:umbrella:

Paul0889, what audio bitrate you choose :?:

thanks.
:wink:

i will that my acer can do the same.

Paul0889 07-14-2003 05:30 AM

for audio i used 224 kbs.

jorel 07-14-2003 05:44 AM

224 kbs for audio is good cos space in this case isn't important.

thank you very much Paul0889
:wink:

i will try it today!
:D

ps:
of course if my burner can do it.....as i will!


@all
please, after positive results, post the label and model of the burner :!:

thank you all!
:wink:

totonho03 07-14-2003 10:42 AM

:(

my Acer 24x10x40 can't "see" the dvd-r!

:( :( :(

:!:

someone try it too :?:

totonho03 07-14-2003 09:49 PM

Jorel:

What is your set up? I am sure that you have already mentioned, but I was wondering if you are using -R or +R discs. Does it make any sense to try this with +r gear?

Kwag, one silly request: Would it be possible to open a threat asking the members to detail their set up? I can think of a couple of instances in which this info may be useable, particularly as an aid to troubleshooting problems. For Instance:
I have:

An IBM laptop; PIII 800 Mhz; 30 Giga HD; 512 RAM; a PCMCIA..IBM IEEE card; an external HP 200e writter +R(W) and an external Western Digital 120 G HD connected to the firewire card; W98SE OS. An RCA dvd player -RCS 215P, which is dying, that is why I am interested in purchasing the units that you guys are talking about; and a Toshiba 1200U that does not like +R, +RW and some of the kvcd templates.

Please let me know if this request is of any use to the members of the forum or not...

Thanks

Best regards
