Degradation of media

[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SH-S203B / TS-H653B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,

For some time now I have been having issues with Verbatim DVD +R DL. The burns look great, with DiscSpeed 4 quality > 95 and they play without errors in my SA player. After several plays and/or a couple of months, they begin to have errors during playback. lately, I have been rescanning the discs and noticed that they deveolp error spikes near the layer breaks, which were abscent after the post-burn scans. Can anybody tell me what can cause this?

I use a SH-S203B burner



since this is not a problem of the drive, but more likely a media realted issue, I have moved this thread to the Blank Media forum.

Are there any scratches on the disc at the edge?

This is a consistent problem, with several discs. The surfaces look clean and free from scratches.
