I have tried burning one of them in my notebook but that didnt work either.
My worry is that these Verbatims degraded in storage without any cause. I have lots of other media stored next to them and they all work fine.
I can imagine how one disc could be damaged by inapropriate handling during or after burning, but that is clearly not the case here. I have done thousands of burns and scans before and this has never happened, certainly not with quality media.
I have also done al lot of burns on MCC004, TYG03 and MKM001 DL discs during the past days and they all turned out excellent. My setup is state of the art and I know how to do a proper burn.
The problem may be related to printable media only, but as I said before, these are from two different batches (full face in jewel case versus non full face printable in tub).
Returning them is no option for me. I can’t even remember where I ordered them (I have used suppliers in 4 different countries) and even then, the postage would probably exceed a refund.
I wonder if anyone else has tested this type of media that has been stored (before or after burning) for many months. Fortunately, I always used Taiyo Yuden DVD-R media before I bought these Verbatims. The rest of my burned dvd’s are all +R.
