DVD-RW Drive - LITE-ON DVD-RW LDW-411S
Firmware - FS0K
Media - Memorex DVD-R (8x)
OS - Windows XP Pro
My problem is when I burn a data DVD of video (.avi) files (26 files, ~178 MB each, 4.36 GB total) for archival I get a CRC error when I attempt to retrieve them from the DVD. I have tried both Nero (V126.96.36.199) and also CopyToDVD but still get the error. I have burned 8 DVDs trying different things to fix it but so far no luck. I always burn at 2x or less. I have used three types of media (Verbatim, Sony, and Memorex) and they have all failed in the same way.
I have cleaned the laser with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, as someone suggested that the drive may have been dirty, but this did not fix anything.
I tried switching the drive to the top slot on my computer, still no luck.
I’m sure I’m missing something, but I can’t think of anything else to try before I go and buy a new DVD-RW dive.
