I burned a data DVD-R (Samsung Pleomax 8X, ID: Optodisc R008) for a friend and forgot to “close the disc” (I closed the session). My friend couldn’t access the disc at all with several different PCs.
After he used Nero to close the disc he found that some, but not all of the data was then accessible.
Is this a common problem? Is it just the “closing” that was the problem or is media quality also likely to be some of the cause of the difficulty reading?
