I have recently been playing DVD burned with Nero on my 2500A using PowerDVD and have noticed that about 1/3 of the disks have problems. Power DVD will freeze and refuse to continue playing them.
I’ve used DVD shrink and Nero Recode to try to rip the DVDs back to my HDD, but both programs report the discs as having CRC errors and claim they are unreadable.
However, my old LG standalone DVD player replays the discs with no problem…
As a result, I have started using the verification process in Nero - a high number of burns are reported as having failed the verification (usually with “n files inaccessible”).
I’ve read posts on this forum that variously say that using verificatin is a waste of time and that the NEC 2500 is a poor reader.
Am I right, then, to believe that:
- other DVD burners WOULD be able to read my discs and that the NEC is just being overly fussy;
- Verification is a waste of time (usually);
- my media is ok (using 4x Ridisc G05 and Datawrite 8x FUJIFILM03)
Finally, can anyone recommend a burner that is as good a reader as it is a writer?
