I’ve been burning a couple of discs and recently bought a spindle of Verbatim DVD+R DL (mkm003) because I ran out of TDKs (ritek-s04-66)
However, when I burn these discs (my burner is a samsung sh-223b firmware SB02 which is latest) using IMGBurn, when it hits the layerbreak, it pauses for around 20 seconds not burning at all, then resumes. This was strange so I scanned for PIF and PIE errors, and it wasn’t too bad, but there is a huge PIF spike in the middle of the disc.
My old TDK discs had less PIF errors but a lot more PIE (although the verbatims have a higher PIE spike), now I’m concerned on which discs I should continue to use, or if replacing my burner will correct the problem. Anyone have any ideas?
I attached pictures of both scans.
