I was having a lot of trouble with failed burns, and posted a few threads to which I got a lot of assistance. However, as I originally suspected, my DVD burner was bad and needed to be replaced (after if failed some tests). Iâ€™ve got the new one in and it seems to be working fine so far. My new questions would be, when I got "failed to burn" messages in the past, I would check the DVD through the burning software, and it would show the disc as still empty. However, if I try to use this disc again, it would inevitably fail in DVDfab. When I then get the message "do you want to burn again" I would put in a brand new DVD and DVDfab would finish and say "burned successfully" But when I try to play this disc, I will get and "unknown disc" message from my player? So my questions are, why does the burning software say the disc is blank but they always fail, and when I hit "burn again" why does it always say it was successful when it never is?
