DVD Replication Job Troubleshooting


Situation: You have run into serious problems at the plant; your DVD Image submission is being held up by obscure errors, or has been outright rejected for mastering by the replicator. Or, the DVDs have been replicated and are now found to have one or more playability problems out in the market.

Trai will have the answer on what the cause is, and what needs to be done to restore the projects to working order, usually within 24-48 hours after receiving the materials (and many times within the first phone call).

However the situation manifests itself, when you find you and your client are in a jam at the plant or in the marketplace, please give Trai a call at 800-213-2297 or 610-924-9204 to tell him what's going on, and for a quote; or please send an email.
