DVD Double Layer Playing problem
I recently obtained a two DVD+-RW DL burners and decided to test them by
trying to burn a copy of Monster's Inc (which is a DVD we own that is a
DL disk) They are the Plextor DVDR PX-750A and the DVD-RW drive that
comes with the SONY VIAO VGN-SZ160P.
dd if=/dev/dvd of=DVD.iso bs=2048
to make the ISO, and
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=DVD.iso
to burn it.
There were no reported errors at all during the burning process.
I can mount the burned disks on the either of the Dl DVD+-RW drives that
did burning, but my oldest DVD drive (which is only a DVD-RW single
layer burner) thinks there is no media there (it can play commerical DL
DVDs just fine). I can play the ISO image with xine no problem and I
have used "diff" to verify that
1) The ISO and the burned DVDs movie are the same
But I cannot play the burned DVDs as video anywhere, including the
drives that burned it one (with either windows or linux) On windows or
a commercial stand-alone DVD player I get a frozen scene from one of the
previews with a stuttering text that loops after a few minutes. With
either xine or totem it reports that this DVD is encrypted and
recommends that I install libdvdcss. I have libdvdccs installed and it
is what I use to watch most commercial DVDs that I watch.
"Media Book Type: 01h, DVD-ROM book [revision 1]"
for both the burned DVD and original, so I don't think using
"dvd+rw-booktype -dvd-rom -media /dev/scdN"
from Andy Polyakov's DVD+RW tools webpage will work (I have not tried it
It seems clear that in terms of data and filesystems, I am burning
DVD-9s (DL DVDs) just fine, but not from a video playing point of veiw.
Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix it?
