I’m having this weird problem burning Verbatim 16x dvd+rs. The beginning of the spindle was great… no complaints… UNTIL for some reason the majority of the discs now are failing to verify. This is in a 100pk spindle (purple) mcc04’s
This makes me so aggravated, I thought it might be my burner which is relatively new (samsung sh-s203n) but I’m leaning towards crappy media. However, I’ve never had a burn failure on any other media, yet. Oh jeez, what to do… months after purchase and more than half the spindle consumed… ?
Do we have to dig deep into spindles and find out if these bastards are ripping us off with defective media mixed in? Since hitting the 50% mark, I’ve had to throw out about 12 discs because I’m backing up data… not making movie discs… and the verify is important. Is it possible nero is making false positives on sector verification, because I’ve had the opposite occur on me with my nec 3500… where the data verify was successful, yet the discs were s__t & could not pull the data back… then again that wasn’t with verbatims.
I bought verbatims, because I read so much good stuff about scans being in the 100-300pif range which is good compared with other brands in the same price range. Now, I have to scratch my head & say is it worth it, if I can’t get 15-20% of the discs to do proper data backups? For important stuff, I do make redundant copies… but I won’t tolerate bad burns. I’m inclined to throw those away.
