3500AG Fail to write Verbatim DVD-R 8x - OMG - please take a look

#1

Hello,

I’ve owned an 3500A and upgraded its firmware to the latest 3500AG 2.19.
I’ve burnt 200 DVD+Rs – Yuden 8x and Optodisk 8x flawlessly.

Yesterday, I bought a Verbatim DVD-R 8x from newegg http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16817130959, the 100-pack. The verbatim is failed with both my nero and alcolhol 120%.

I did research on google, and found many people have successfully burnt verbatim DVD-R 8x, so I don’t know why my 3500AG fails with it. I always burn DVD+R. This is the first time that I try to burn DVD-R.

The situation is that nero and alcolhol reject the media immediately after they try to write.

Here is my nero log:

I notice that there are some errors on the booktype setting, but I don’t know if it is the cause of the failure.

I have tried to change my 3500AG booktype setting with the NecWinFlash Utility to DVD-R, but it doesn’t help.

So, do you have any idea what’s wrong with my 3500A or the media?

Thanks.
