I use Nero. Latest version. I’ve burned maybe 250 DVDs since beginning of the year. I’ve noticed that a couple weeks ago some of the dvd-rips I burn unto blank dvds (I only use used Ritek or Ricoh dvds) are not burning correctly. Nero will say burn successful but when I try to replay them, it’ll only display part of the file, and when trying to transfer back to the hard drive it’ll give me a CRC error. Is it possible that the dvd burner has worn out and I have to get another one, or is it something I can return to newegg in exchange for another one?
welcome to the forum!
It is well known that the quality of different batches of Ritek media may vary a lot… maybe you have got a bad batch. Before addressing your problems to the hardware, please check if you have problems also using different media.
Hope this helps, please report back!
It may be the ritek. I’m currently using a 50 spindle dvd-r from ritek. When i use DVD identifier, it recognizes it as
Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:RITEKG04]
Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [RITEKG04]
Manufacturer Name : [Ritek Co.]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2x , 4x] (8x Cannot Be Detected)
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]

(great program btw). I havne’t had any problems before this, using Ricoh discs. If it is a bad batch, what should I do about it. Just throw out the rest? And how does a bad batch form. Do they go on a streak of creating bad discs or is one of their factories defunct or something?
Burn them at a slower speed maybe ?
slower than 4x? I dunno.
I’ve decided to try other batches and see how they fare. Opened up a brand new 100 spindle of ricoh. 1st one, perfect. I guess it could be a bad batch.
hi unpluggedboy, I had exactly the same problem like yours. Burned over 100 MCC without any problem, then after that day installed latest nero, got freeze at player and crc error too, Then, I tried install back v18.104.22.168, everything back to normal again.
Hope it will help.
