Iâ€™ve been using silver top taiyo yuden 2.4x (TAIYOYUDEN ID code) discs in a 106d drive. The discs themselves seem to be pretty darn good, although some discs turn out unreadable at certain points in the disc.
For instance when watching movies, I get freezes and artefacts. Not all movies are like this though. Another problem is when watching a movie; the first chapter itself was having issues when reading.
Are there any tips or pointers in getting good results when burning? I was hoping to use the PC the same time of burning. I figured the machine is more than capable of burning and multitasking. P4 2.8ghz 800mhz, corsair twinx1024 3200c2pro, p4c800 deluxe. Using Nero 188.8.131.52 to create these DVD video burns. Also, the drive is on the newest firmware I believe.
My question here really is these TYâ€™s good discs? And the problem that I experience on certain discs should just be classified as bad discs out of the spindle? Should I restart my pc after every burn or before I begin to burn a load of discs?
