Error Code Task_2 Failed 122 on DVDfab

I started getting this error on my attempts to burn using dvdfab. Have not had this problem before and have been using the amazon blanks R+ and R- for years without any issues. Even tried memorex, same issues. Any suggestions

The media must have changed or perhaps you’ve got a bad batch.

Error 122 indicates a failed calibration error at the start of the media and is usually indicative of discs that are either borderline or inadequately supported by your drive.

I see there’s a write strategy error listed in there so you could try updating the firmware for your drive if a more recent one is available.

Oh and welcome to the forums BTW. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback. I took the less painful approach an bought a new burner at Best Buy. the one with the issue had logged 3000+ burns. It was probably burnt out(pardon the pun). New one works fine, no errors with the same batch of DVD’s…
