I have been burning for a good while. In that amount of time I can count the number of bad burns that I have had on one hand. Now all of a sudden i have had six bad burns out of six. Mainly I am having super high pif’s around the outer rims of the disks. Right now I am looking at a scan that has a group of pif levels clumped together right under 100(not the one that is attatched). If you need them I can post some of the scans. Most dont look to bad, but i have never had pif levels that high before. And they are causing problems in the playback. Im wondering what could possibly be the problem.
I switched to using clone cd to burn my dvds because i had several original dvds that were single layer and clone cd seemed to work great on my dl burns. (Could this be the problem)
I also tried a scan of a burn that i did from the same group using 1 click dvd copy pro. The scan wasnt nearly as bad, but it is worse than it normally is.
So my question is do you think it could be the burner the software or the source disk?

I am not at my computer right now. But Here is a scan that I have on hand. This one doesnt look nearly as bad as the other ones but it still cause jumps and other playback problems. This one was burned with one click at 8x.
