I'm not really sure if this is a software issue, but I suspect that Nero may have something to do with it, so I posted it here...
I'm relatively new to DVD-burning, and I've been using Nero 6 (several different revisions) to burn DVDs. After I encountered a few DVDs that had files on them that were completely destroyed by bad sectors (on some it seemed that one or 2 files were 100% bad while the rest of the disc was perfect), I started always having verification turned on. However, it seems that even some DVDs that passed verification have turned out to have bad sectors on them.
I'm wondering if Nero could be the cause of unreliable DVD-burns, or maybe the discs are bad? It seems to me that DVDs are extremely vulnerable to bad sectors.
There are also some that test perfectly in my DVD-burner (Nero CD/DVD-speed), but show bad sectors on my other DVD-ROM...
I've been looking for other DVD burning software (not for copying DVDs, such as CloneDVD and Alcohol, but for burning files), but I can't seem to find any others than Nero that I would even consider using (Easy CD (/DVD?) Creator and WinOnCD comes to mind...)
What is the best program for burning DVDs?
Any ideas how to avoid bad burns and unreliable DVDs?
I've been burning CDs (probably thousands) for many years with many different burners, and I've never seen problems like this before..
