I have a Plextor PX-716A burner. I have had it for 4-5 years and this is the first year that I have burned dvdâ€™s with it. I use Nero 7 as well. I coach hs football and I have been burning game film, trade film and video from a camcorder from when we send someone to scout. Weeks 1 and 2 the dvdâ€™s were very good. Clear and burned with no problems. Week 3 I had 1 dvd that came out funny. When there was no action, kids standing still, the quality was ok; when the action started things became blurry. The kids went out of focus. I did the video from scratch a second time and it turned out ok. Week 4 every dvd I made turned out bad. Non-action looked fuzzy, action looked blurred. Week 5 was the same as week 4, all were bad, and I was even getting errors, unable to burn dvd.
I thought it might be a software issue, so I uninstalled Nero and reinstalled it, still same result. Finally I installed Nero on my wifeâ€™s dell and burned the dvdâ€™s and the turned out fine. I am assuming that this burner is now a paper weight, or is there something that can be done with it. If not, what would be a good replacement? I loved my plextor because whatever I burned, it would play in any cd/dvd player that I tried it in.
So I guess that would have to be my number 1 requirement in a burner. Good quality burn and speed would be next.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
