The general concensus around here is that a Sharpie marker works fine. Apparently, it's the stickers that can damage the discs.
My next burn will be at 8x, and will post my results here. I just want to know if i got a bad burner Kinda wanted my first BenQ experience to be a happy one.
I say your burner is likely good - mostly based on the low PIFs and the steady jitter. But we really need to see some burns at higher speeds - 8X and 12X before we can properly judge.
BTW, how do you burn a DVD encoded with Rebuilder? Can i do burn the TS folders directly on the DVD? can't figure out how with Decrypter...
DVD Decrypter can only burn image files(typically ISO).
However, Nero can burn them, but you must make sure that you burn them in the UDF file format, or most players won't be able to play them. Clicking Nero's "File->New" menus and then selecting "DVD-Video" is perhaps the easiest way to ensure this. It will automatically create the VIDEO_TS folder for you. Just drag all of your files into this folder and then burn it and all should be well.
