Hi, I'm new to the forum, however, I have used the existing threads for information previous to joining. Alas, I cannot find a solution to my problem, so here it is.
I use a ND-3500AG with 2.18 official firmware & Norton Ghost 2003 to back-up my system every month. At the moment, I burn an image onto Fugifilm DVD+RW media. The 1st burns onto the DVD+RW are successful. This is confirmed by Ghost's Image Integrity check.
The problem is this, when I do a full erase of the disks, everything seems OK as then the system recognises that the disks are now blank, however, when I use the disks to back-up again and run the integrity check, it fails at about 75% of the process because it no longer can read the disks.
Iso-Buster confirms this as well saying that it cannot read sectors.
At first, there seems to be no physical damage to the disks, until a closer inspection reveals that there is a thin circle halfway between the centre and the edge of the media. It looks similar to the gap between tracks on an old LP record.
This is only materialises after the disks are erased for the 1st time. I have used CDX Burner Pro 3 & Clean 4! to erase the disks with the same results.
It seems odd that this line is not there when examining the disk straight out of the pakaging (as I said at the begining, 1st burns are OK).
At the moment, I only have this trouble with DVD+RW disks. CD-RW do not have this problem.
I have other media I could try, but do not want to make expensive coasters.
Has anyone come across this problem?
