Compatibility Question.....1GB minimum on DVD Recordable Discs
on Mar 14, 2006 at 9:48:31 pm


Ever since I can remember I have always been able to check
that compatability box in Nero or PrimoDVD that makes a DVD writer
write at least 1GB of "dummy data" to a DVD-+R if your video_ts
is not equal to or larger than 1GB.

Its my understanding this was done so that players that do not recognize a
recordable DVD if it has less than 1GB of data, would have no problems.

I still use ReelDVD and Nero and PrimoDVD, but I'm also now using DVD Studio Pro on a mac G5 and burning Discs with DVDSP or Toast 7 titanium. Neither of these have that "1GB dummy data" option. If my video_ts contains 45mb of data, thats what gets burned only.

So my question is this:

Does it really matter any more to have at least 1GB of data on a DVD-Video Disc?

Have any of you found some secret buried setting in toast or dvdsp that makes it burn that 1gb of dummy data?

any input is much appreciated.

I haven't encountered any problems with that in a long while. I can remember not that long ago when the reall data would write in a minute and the dummy data would take like fifteen, but something changed at some point. I just forgot about it.

Writing the dummy data on a pioneer A03 2x drive
was murder. I recall some princo discs taking 20 minutes each to finalize.

All of the Princo discs I had have become useless. I think they used some pretty stinky dye. Are they still in business?

I think so. Now that I remember better they were optodisc dvd-r's.

I only used them one time. Since then its been Ritek all the way
and no returns after doing 10's of thousands.

I also use Riteks exclusively. I posted a great deal I found on Verbatims, but I didn't buy them cuz I'm adicted to Ritek. BTW, I did encounter one bad disc a few weeks ago. Its the only Ritek coaster I've ever created.
