Burn again with verify enabled an then post a logfile here please.

Having the same problem since upgrading to win vista (about 50% of its own burned DVDs unreadable), was working perfectly with win XP.
Patched with SB06 Firmware today and still testing. Haven’t found any problems since.

*Testing with mitsubishi (-R, 16x)

Try +R and see if that works.


Tested with 5 pcs Sony DVD+R @ 16X, Mitsubishi +R and -R 5 each:

  • +R’s readable as for now.
  • -R’s need to reinsert a few times, sometimes detected a used DVD-R’s as blank disk.
