I was wondering if someone could answer a quick question I have. Recently when doing DL backups, I’ve been noticing some very minor pixellation around the layer break. It only happens within a 5 minute window and it’s very minor, doesn’t detract at all from the movie but I’m wondering why it occurs as it’s never happened before. The only media I use is Verbatim DVD+R DL. I have a SONY DVD RW DW-Q58A recorder with the latest UYS3 firmware. I’ve been burning with ImgBurn at 2x speed. The backup is perfect quality except for this minor problem in the middle…I’m wondering if my burner is wearing out or something?
Also (this is somewhat unrelated), I updated the firmware to UYS3. Before the update, the light on the side of my drive used to blink green, now it blinks amber/orange. What’s the reason for this? It hasn’t affected any aspect of ripping or burning so I’m wondering if there’s an explanation for why the color changed.
