Hi :slight_smile:

Those Tevion discs are more than likely fake Taiyo Yuden (TYG02) - so I’d say those are likely your problem.

Try some better known discs such as Sony or Verbatim and see how you get on. My bet is the (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR) will disappear :wink:

Edit: A search of the Blank Media Forum for “Tevion” should tell you more :slight_smile:

Try getting rid of those INCD drivers and burn at a higher speed.

I agree with Arachne about Tevion discs. I haven’t seen 8x Tevions for quite
a while so they are probably quite old. It seems unlikely that Tevion are
selling genuine Yuden T02. They are probably Chinese fakes.

Try using better media.

I uninstalled the incd and tried buring at 4x and have burned 4 dvds successfully Thanks!
as far as the tevion disk I buy them at aldis for 5 dollar’s for a pack of 10 with jewel cases and labels I usualy have no problems with them.
