As of late, I started having problems with discs burned about 8 months ago in my standalone DVD player, and even some just burned a couple of months ago. I tried to copy the contents and couldn’t, the read errors forced it to fail.
So, I did a scan and was shocked with what I found.
The media is Verbatim 16X DVD-R for the most part (MCC 003). Some DVD+R (MCC004) too. I thought from what I read around here and other places that it was good, so that’s what I’ve been using. As I read stuff as of late, it seems like the popularity in Verbatim is waning and TY is the only way to go. Too bad I just ordered a 100 pk of 8x DVD+R from NewEgg that can’t be returned.
Here’s the scan. Any thoughts on what the heck is happening with this media?
