Yes you did have a problem. You were, however, unable to perceive your problem. Your Memorsux disks have been sitting on your shelf deteriorating all this time until your player no longer is able to recognized the data on the disks. BTW: The computer drive that created the backup will be the last of your “players” to fail to recognize those memorex backups … but that drive will also someday fail to read them.
Doesn’t matter; they are all crap!
You got that part right.
All over the cdfreaks Forum, in virtually every posting you might have gotten a hit for, [I]if you had searched for the keyword “Memorex”[/I], members have posted about the horrid quality, lack of longevity, and variences in quality between different batches, speed ratings or variences even within the same spindle of disks. They just plaster their memorex name on the lowest bidder manufacuter!
Quality of DVD backup media is [I]EVERYTHING[/I] in your chosen hobby of making backups. Suggest you do a little research before you buy media or any other product. My guess is you grabbed memorsux because “… they used to make great video & audio tape cassettes …” … right?
This is NOT the way to do it … [I]Do your research[/I]!
Again, please learn to do your research.
Sorry if I seem brutal, but I just get irate that at this point in timeline (2006) of digital backup progress, Memorex is still fooling people into buying their media!
Then buy Verbatim +R media and booktype (bitset) them to DVD-ROM standard.
