Error when burning DVD's using Alc(specs inside)

#1

Well I was working on making a backup of my movie and for the last couple of months I haven’t had a SINGLE bad burn, but lately every damn time I make a burn I get the same error using both Alcohol and Nero:

Obviously you can see what’s going on, and from what I’ve seen it’s sorta common. I reinstalled Alcohol and updated the firmware, still the same thing.

Any ideas people?

Well I tried burning again, same result. Before I left for work I tried with a DIFFERENT brand and I got a good burn…kinda strange. The bad ones only seem to happen on Memorex brand DVD+R’s, while my Verbatim and Sony’s work fine…I’m gonna try a Memorex again, see what happens, and I’ll post to confirm/deny anything.


#3

Can you post a complete system report from within Alcohol please.


#4

Do you mean the error report? Because I only left out the information that I didn’t think was necessary. Otherwise what do I need to do?

BTW: I believe this is confirmed. I did a second burn with Verbatim and it worked perfectly. If I try again with the Memorex I believe the burn will fail.


#5

Don’t leave anything out thanks.


#6

Not enough information provided to be completely accurate, but I think you are onto something with the media. Memorex media is generally considered inconsistent at best. They do not ‘make’ media, only rebadge media from their suppliers, and this is where the problem lies. No consistency from the suppliers means you don’t know what you’re getting when you buy.

My suggestion would be to dump the Memorex stuff, or at least try it with another burner if possible. Perhaps you could find another burner that would work with that media. In the future, stick with known good media providers, TY and Verbatim to name a few and you will most likely prevent these errors from occuring.
