Bdr 2208 and L-EC uncorrectable error imgburn

vbimport

#1

hi, relatively new user here and i dont really know where to post this but been lurking for a while and finally took the dip into blu ray burners. got myself a bdr2208 and a 25 pack of taiyo yuden bdr dl. I am getting a weird error though when trying to verify these discs. I have burned 4 “good” discs, burned and verified just fine but after that the next 2 i burned it would go halfway to the layer break and can’t read the next layer it seems like. i am attaching the imgburn log if that helps anyone.

first bad verify/burn:

so my question is it the drive or the media? if its the drive i can just get another one b/c i have warranty and just bought it but if its the discs well then that really sucks and what can i do to prevent this from happening? it SEEMS like the discs play fine in my software player but i haven’t tried it in any hardware blu ray player. sorry i dont have another drive to scan the disc with
