Successful burn but blank disc

I’ve been burning multiple avi episodes onto DVD and they have been working fine until the last 3 times I tried. Everything will appear to work, but when I pop the disc into my DVD player, it will just stay “Loading” forever. If I put it into my computer, it’ll register as a blank disc. It gave me a "Log cannot be saved onto disk. Current “” " error, but that’s it.

Hi there,

Did you burn it with ConvertXtoDVD ?

Please provide us a full burn log !

Yes I did. Sorry, forgot to post the log. Just tried again… same thing. That makes coaster #5.

Your media is 2nd class - try using slower burning speed.

It’s on the slowest burn speed I thought… I had burned 4 successful discs consisting of 9 episodes before attempting to burn these last 5 episodes too. For some reason only this last batch is giving me problems… Perhaps it has something to do with the files? I also noticed this error in the log:
