I have a Samsung SH-222BB/BEBE enclosed in a Vantec DX enclosure. I always use Verbatim DVD DL to burn all media. After every burn, I immediately do a transfer rate test (TFT). Lately, quite a few of my burns have not been entirely successful. The results look like this:
I think it has to do with using an external enclosure. At first, I used to burn from an external hard drive to the external dvd burner. I got similar results like the one on top. So I stopped doing that and burned from my hard drive to the external burner. All went well, until this TFT result. I am not quite sure why this is happening. The enclosure has a power supply of its own so I don’t think it could be lack of power. Perhaps because I had another external hard drive connected? I don’t think so. It wasn’t transferring any files.
I need some opinions and suggestions. Could it be simply because samsung is not a very good burner or vantec sucks?
