Burning videos (_TS) on DVD-RW 4.7GB discs is stable, but I’ve begun to burn DVD-R/+R 4.7GB now and they are a bit strange.
It starts well but after a while … about every 3rd minute the device makes a click snap sound, and the bottom Buffer Level (3rd small bar in nero burning rom 7) drops to ~10% for ~1sec. (probably down to 0).
I use lowest speeds. 2 and 2,4x
Now for the fun part!
The first discs that broke (verification found errors and froze after a while, as did video playback) was cheap brand Traxdata DVD-R. So I bought Verbatim DVD+r quality discs (mcc004), and although writing still had same click symptoms the verification went well and they seem to play (only did a ~15 min test).
But given that the quality discs also stuttered during the burn suggest it’s the device that’s troubling.
I haven’t installed any specific drivers (is there any?) only what Pro Win XP SP3 has. Also there’s newer writer firmware, but that shouldn’t be necessary.
Anyone who can help?
