The media itself doesn’t really matter I guess, but this seems to be the place to be for testing questions.
I backed up a movie on imation MBIPG101R04 8x media at 8x which my burner supports (toshiba SD-R3572 with TU56 firmware).
as I don’t have a burner that scans I tested the transfer rate with nero cd-dvd speed. after ejecting and reinserting the disc into my burner i started the test and immediately got an error:
sorry for the low quality image, but you get the picture…
i put the disc in my dvd-rom drive (not sure of the model as I have a factory built computer) and got a textbook perfect smooth transfer rate curve.
after a few trials with both drives I got the same results with this disc.
my burner reads discs fine and will produce transfer rate data for all of my other discs (i tried another disc after this problem first occurred).
should i be worried that there’s something wrong with my drive? I don’t notice any skipping or anything when i play dvds and it rips most discs quite well. It’s better for damaged discs that my dvd-rom is normally.
any idea what’s going on or if i should be concerned?
the disc was burned and verified with nero. i’m running windows XP, P4 2Ghz processor, 512mb ram, and two 150GB+ hard drives (master, slave on same IDE)
