I’m new to DVD burning, but this forum seems appropriate, please bear with me.
I burned 4473 MB of data files to a DVD-R. The burner reported write speeds between 4X-6X and no errors of any kind were reported. This was my first burn attempt using this drive.
After burning, Nero CD-DVD Speed reports numerous file read errors on a file scan and 41.88% bad (red) on a surface scan, most in the last half of the scan map.
Media… TDK 8X DVD-R (TTG02), recommended by Plextor
Drive… PX-712A, 1.05 firmware
Burner… Roxio Creator Classic 188.8.131.52
Tools… Nero CD-DVD Speed 3.55
System… Athlon 2200+ 1.8 Ghz 992 MB ram
OS… XP PRO SP2
Display… NVidia GeForce4MX driver version 184.108.40.206
It seems something is very wrong with this result. Can anyone comment? Media problem? Drive problem? Software problem? User stupidity? Suggestions?
