I have got 4 spindles of 25 verbatim X8 TY dvd-rs, the first spindle i have opened 3 out 9 discs have burnt at X8 the other 6 have refused to even start burn, the drive just sits there, normally takes 35-45 secs to start up, these times it was sitting there for about 1:30 and on wards, i have to abort the operation once or twice the operation wont stop and i have to reset. I then popped in a Traxdata G04 and it burnt first time, i then opened another spindle of the verbs and the first disc out burnt first time. So could i have here a bad batch of TY’s.?? I’ll try and burn on off the first spindle tomorrow at X4 see if it does the same. But thats not very good if it is a bad spindle considering that TY media is meant to be the best media.
Cant really burn anymore as i have nothing to burn at the mo.
