Hi! Newbie here, a few weeks ago I bought a spindle of Verbatim DVD+R from Amazon. I found out that they were the newer ones produced from Falcon Technology in UAE. I’ve burned a few of these and whenever they come out of my dvd writer there are always a few scratches on the inner white plastic ring. I think it is a problem that is with the dvd writer/rom because I placed a UAE verbatim into a different dvd writer and there were no scratches at all.
On playback, I’ve watched one of these scratched dvds and they play fine. Usually I use the CMC variety of verbatim dvd+R (the ones with the PAPA code on the inner ring) and I don’t seem to recall that many scratches after they’ve come out of the dvd drive at all. Is there any way to stop my dvd writer from scratching these new verbatims whenever the drive reads the disc? If not I might consider sending them back to amazon. I hope I’m not being too paranoid or anal retentive about ths situation. Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
