I’m going a little crazy figuring out my problem.
I recently upgraded my TDK DVD Burner to a Pioneer DVR-108, and have been burning RITEK G005 disks.
I haven’t had many issues playing movies in my DVD player but the occasional visible Digital artifact made me curious about the quality of the burns. I used DVDINFO to perform the CRC test and it’s a mess. The last 1/3 of the disks are full of errors, tons of them. I confirmed this on my portable and on the Samsung DVD writer on my work PC.
I figured my burner was bad, and I had a spare at work so I switched it for an Identical burner. The new DVR-108 can read the disks, DVDINFO shows no CRC errors.
I was jumping for joy, I reinstalled my TDK burner and tried to copy them to clean disks with Roxio’s DVD COPY, just to be careful I set the burn speed to 4x in case the high burn rate (8x) was causing the problems. No luck, the TDK disks reveal CRC errors as well.
So What’s wrong?
Burner bad, probably not TDK burner also messed up disks.
Disks Bad, probably not or the Pioneer burner wouldn’t be able to read them either.
Other DVD Players bad, probably not I used 2
What the heck is going on?
