I’ve just bought a 2510A, updated to Herries 2.06 firmware. Using DVD Decrypter to copy to my hard drive then DVD Shrink 3.2 to reauthor and burn using the nero option. Trouble is nearly all the films lockup right near the end. I’ve scanned the discs using DVDInfoPro and it reports bad sectors at around 98-99%. The discs I’m using I bought from dabs.com are 2x DVD-r in a pack of 50. DVD Identifier recognises them as
Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:MXL RG01]
Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [MXL RG01]
Manufacturer Name : [Hitachi Maxell Ltd.]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , (2x)]
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]

I thought these were supposed to be a good make. I’ve read about the Maxwell fakes that are going round but surely such a big organisation as dabs wouldn’t sell fakes - would they?
So my question is, is it the media or is it the burner or something else I’m doing wrong?
