I’ve got a new Dell Precision M6300 laptop. The internal DVD+/-RW is a TSSTcorp TS-L632H.
I’m burning DVD videos on Verbatim 8x DVD+R (MCC 003) at 8x in Nero 18.104.22.168 (the bundled Roxio software doesn’t appear to burn DVD video). This combo has served me well for a couple of years on the Benq and Pioneer drives on my desktop PCs.
The first 3 DVDs I burnt play but “break up” at the start on my Pioneer and Sharp set-top players. Not sellable. I updated the firmware from D300 to D400 from the Dell site but I’ve still got the problem.
I need to burn around 200 DVDs on this on tour between June and December to sell, so they’ve got to be right, but I really don’t want to carry an external DVD writer around with me if I can help it.
I’m going to raise this with Dell of course but I wondered what other people’s experiences are. Are my troubles typical of a flimsy thin internal DVD writer or have I simply just got a dud drive?
Here are some scans of a typical offending disc (scanned on my desktop PC)
