Use it or lose it? blank blu rays



I’m having trouble writing to some blu ray discs which I’ve had for a while (maybe 1-2 years) and were still blank…
4/5 discs are writing with errors upon verification…:a:a

does blu ray media degrade THAT much over 2 years?
or is the problem an old burner which is the issue over 3-4 years-- as I would imagine I bought the lg 10x burner around 2011ish…

incase your wondering which media;
these are Ridata 4x 25gb inkjet print-ables MIT label
as of now I don’t recall how old they are, I’ll have to look it up on the newegg purchase history

BTW, I’ve seen this issue before with blank DVDs so I imagine it could be the same kind of thing-- the substrate dye degrading…


update: the drive is LG WH10LS30 10X Blu-ray Burner - LightScribe 11/2010
and the media about a year later…


Um. Do the discs identify as RITEK BR2?

How were these blanks stored?
