Problems with Verbatim Dual Layer on 1650

#1

Have been burning Verb dual layers today for the first time, and am disappointed and puzzled by my results. Here are my scans of 2 of my 3 burns so far, what do you think?

My second burn was looking similar until the end of the first layer when I got a “no additional sense information error”. The firmware had been changed to a speededited BCIC. I was so frustrated I didn’t even save this scan.

My third burn I burnt on my NEC 3520. This time I burnt at 4X. The first scan was on my BenQ the second scan was on my NEC. I don’t understand at all why the results seem to be reversed, the benq shows the errors at the end of the first layer, the NEC the second layer.

Did I get a bad batch of Verbs or what, I don’t know what to do. I should mention that so far just skipping through them, they all seem to play okay on my computer. They have all failed TR tests, but the one I did a scan disk on looked fine.

I’m looking forward to hearing what you all think, I’ve learned a lot reading here but have never posted. Hope all my attachments work.

my verbatim DL discs usually give quality scores around 95% (like your first attachement with my benq1650 with BCIC firmware… but i get only around 700 000 pi-errors but around 10 000 pi-failures

u seem to know what ure doing but just to be sure with the 2nd burn, i wonder if ure burning from a fat32 partition since theres a filesize limit of 4 gigs with fat32 (but i guess u already know this)

lastninja,

Thanks for the reply, I am using all ntfs partitions. I am pretty much convinced I just got a bad batch of verb dl’s. The first burn/scan was my best and they just went downhill from there. The pi errors have remained pretty much the same but the pi failures have taken off.

This evening I e-mailed verbatim about getting some replacements, I hope they will take care of that as I bought 30. Take a look at my latest try.
