Problem with new dvds

Hey,

I use the Software Copy to DVD (VSO) and I just bought a new set of memorex dvd’s. The burning procedure starts normally each time I want to burn a dvd video but after a while it goes directly to the finalizing stage and I get a write error:

Writesector failed at sector 1032320 (32) - code 03 90 92 [Medium error].

Like it says this a medium error, but it did that each time I tried to burn a dvd with that brand.
I already burnt video dvd before with a cheaper and it worked. The firmware of my burner is up to date…

Can anyone help me???

Here is the log for the 2 dvds I tried to burn and for which the procedure failed. Hope it is going to help…

Thanks,

Ornwalden

Have you tried a different burning program to see if it is really the media?

It could be you got a bad batch, if you said you’ve used this media before.
Ritek is for me not the first choice.
Also personally i’d try it with some TY media! :wink:
