Does anyone have a suggestion as to why i am getting read errors (as reported by DVDINFO) at the end of my discs. These errors occur at .32gig mark. Media problem? Media code 00000000 00 6C 00 00 01 40 C1 FD 9E D8 52 00 02 88 0D 13 .l…@…R…

Burner is Piodata 108DX. I use dvdshrink 3.2 and Nero 6.3.1.17. If i play these discs both standalone and rom freeze at these points. These errors are not occurring on all discs, so is the media dodgy? Sorry if this post goes on but i am a noob! thanks for taking the time to read it!

SKC Co, cant say I know much of their company or standards of recordable dvd’s. Use this tool:http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/ and see if it has more detail on the media. But nevertheless it sounds like you need to try a different brand/MID.

OK after a little research, my verdict is: SKC isnt worth pissing on, While it did work well for some,(but not for others) the fact is its about a 60% hit rate, with high PIE/PIF. Media such as Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, Maxell, and TDK, is almost flawless and has nearly a 99% hit rate, but not just that, the burn results are excellent in most drives.

Thanks pollushun. Thats pretty much the conclusion i came to as well. Curse you disc shop!! Would have done the research myself but uptime is severley restricted as she has assignments due, so thanks again for your time. As an experiment i burnt at 2.5x instead of 4x and the disc is o k. Will probably use the discs for data only & buy some taiyos.

Also upgrade your Nero to 6.6.0.6 - for improved leadout writing-
