Question regarding interrupted burning
Question regarding interrupted burning –
I have a pioneer DVR-A05 and I use Stomp RecordNow Max for my backups. I have a question which I'm sure you guys know the answer too. First let me explain the situation. I have a pretty stupid hard-drive that slows down majorly if multi-tasking. So when I'm burning I don't use my computer at all, because I think I might mess up my cd. Unfortunately WinXp sometimes likes to load something in the background for no reason aswell. So today I was backing up two games when this sort of thing occurred. The light on my DVD burner kept going on and off during this period for about 30seconds each, obviously due to not enough data transfer between the hard-drive and burner. I'm not sure how dvd burners work and how they would handle this, but what I would like to know is the dvd messed up now or not?
Back when I had my cdrw, if this sort of thing happened you could chuck that cd straight into the trash because it wouldn't work for sure. As I said I'm not sure how dvd burners work so I don't know if I made a good dvd or not. RecordNow Max said the burn was succesful, and it verified to be good but I can't ignore my past experiences with interrupted burning. So I'm asking here for a quick answer, because the slow method to finding the answer means playing the backup all the way through ^^.
nah new drives both dvdr and cdr have underwrite protection technology so ur ok.
Luckily new burners can suspend writting and can link the data using the seamless link technology or other buffer underrun protection techniques. In the good old days this would have been a coaster, but today the writers are much better. And as the gap at the link is so little that it does not affect the readers, you can read those disks with no problem. (when scanning the disk, special error detection hardware can recognise these, but a normal reader/player is unable to detect such a link (especially if that is used for normal reading and not for special error detection as not that many readers can do such a task))
