Here’s a paradox for you. I have recorded a lot of discs on a cheap and cheerful Vistron DVD Recorder - (under a DVSKOREA burner) and, for some bizarre reason, fail to verify on my BenQ burner in my successfully, yet will be read by Sony DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive in my mums laptop burner.
I may have asked this before so forgive me if I have - But, with decent drives going dirt cheap now, is it worthwhile to replace my BenQ burner, about five years old, if it’s playing up?
Interesting side not that it only plays up on discs made by this recorder. All other discs, such as burned on that burner, is verifying okay, so I’m reluctant to buy a new one for the sake of it, so the actual burner is still working.
I don’t get why it will verify in one but not another - In particular being BenQ which is supposed to be one of the best burner brands around. This way I know the actual disc has not failed if it reads on one drive.
Could this be something to do with recording management information (listed in ImgBurn as DVSKOREA DRL-200 - The burner used to make the disc)
If it’s any help - The dye of discs I’m using is RitekF1 and RitekF16, which all work really well and read on both burners.
