These seems like an appropriate area to post this question, if it isn’t, mods please move it to the correct area.
Using any burner & either single or dual-layer DVDR’s.
Can a speck of dust, which caused a tiny black area on the disc, still be good & ready for archiving? Will the tiny black area over time become a large black area, rendering the data unreadable?
I only ask, since this seems to be a persistent problem in my house, despite cleaning measures, and throwing away good Verbatim MIS DVD+R DL’s is no longer acceptable, due to how hard it is to find them.
My last burn turned out this way & the PI/PIF check came out good, didn’t even give a bad spike or anything, just a consistent check. Reading it back at full speed in Nero CD-DVD Speed gave a smooth line.
Any help &/or advice would be nice, thank you.
