I have an IDE DVD burner that came with my Dell. I believe it's an LG product; it says HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4164B. When I try to copy data off DVD-Rs burned on it to my other computer with an NEC ND-3550A burner, I get an error message saying: "Cannot copy [file name]: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)." I believe this is a compatibility issue as hard-pressed DVDs seem to work OK on the second machine as well as DVD-Rs burned by its own drive.
My question is: "Is this something I can improve by switching to a more powerful burner?" I heard Taiyo Yuden is possibly the best media at the moment, but I am not familiar with the burners. I would guess another LG drive could be more compatible with my Dell one, but I'm not too sure.
If anyone with a similar experience could offer feedback, I'd appreciate it very much.
