Gotta problem with a brand new Blu-ray burner I’ve purchased here. I had a pretty sizable amount of data I needed to backup to bring to a new PC. Around 150GB. Bought a Blu-ray burner, ASUS bw-16d1ht, and made 6 data discs using Verbatim BD-R LTH. When I burned them everything seemed fine. Then I got rid of the old PC. I built the new one and I brought over the Blu-ray burner I had just purchased from the old PC.
When I’m trying to read the data discs I made it doesn’t work. I select all the files then tell Windows7 to copy them. When it starts it seems to be able to read them but then it always stops at the 5% mark and it can’t read the files anymore. I can’t bring over ANY files, small or big. Those data discs were made by the same drive. How could it not be able to read them? Are BD-R LTH supposed to be a problematic format? I googled for this but couldn’t find anything.
Oh and I also tried the copy command of my PS3 but it also fails halfway. It seems to be the discs. The reviews on newegg for Verbatim BDR LTH are kinda bad. I’m wondering if there’s anything else I can try to retrieve the data.
So this is my questions.
Is this drive (ASUS bw-16d1ht) supposed to be problematic? Does it have a good reputation?
Are the Verbatim BD-R LTH reliable media?
What advice would you give me to retrieve the data?
Are there other drives out there that perform better in general? Is there a blu ray drive currently sold that’s supposed to be good at reading hard-to-read disks? I wouldn’t mind investing in a new drive if it can help me save my data.
