Recently bought another DVD burner, hoping that my 20-50% Disc failure rate would be gone. It hasn't, the results are exactly the same as the previous burner, so I don't think it's the burner fault. The AVI files work that I am burning, but 1 second to 1 minute of data is missing from the files. It is never occurs on more than 1 or 2 files out of the 20+ files, and that's out of about 100 failed DVDs I've done.
What can I do to troubleshoot this situation? I moved the Burner onto the HDD IDE cable, though it didn't work at all then. I'm now trying to burn at 4 speed. Checked to see of motherboard drivers were updated, they were, read something about making sure DMA is on, it is.
I'm using DVD-R media, I've tried +R before on my old burner, but it would burn and then not read the data. Using TDK discs atm, I have tried many different types of discs, all to have the same error rate.
Currently have a LG GSA-4163B
Edit - Burning at 4 speed gave me one crc error, that's now three failed discs in a row
Edit - One more newbie question
I've noticed with Nero the veification stage takes 14 minutes compared to using CDCheck at 8 minutes, which is better to use to verify the data? Or is it the same? Would be nice to save 6 minutes each dvd.
