    Imgburn, discs or burner?

    Thanks, but it's this link for the 50-pack: http://www.sweburn.com/product.php?productid=80&cat=3&page=2 Good price: 210,48 SEK!

    Imgburn, discs or burner?

    I like the all white printable surface on those and I usually pick up a 25-pack at the store, they cost 189SEK - delivery time is zero and it's not a lot of money, and as I've said before I never had a problem with them before. Do you have any good link to one of these abroad sellers? These seem affordable: http://se.wesellcd.dk/index.php?page=products&product_id=1494 273 SEK with shipping... with DHL, I imagine I have to pick them up at my closest DHL place - in the neighbor village... Shipping with Posten is another 50 SEK which makes it 323 SEK - 6,46 per disc... I guess it might be worth it however, since they are still considered the highest quality discs. I don't want to mess with a faulty DVD-burner though, even if it has life left - can the quality of the burns be trusted if it can't burn on lower quality discs? I was thinking about getting a Samsung SH-S222A... EDIT: Polkapig was 298 SEK, strange thing though is that on the English page they are called "full printable" and on the Swedish they're only called "printable". I'd hate to get those that have VERBATIM DVD-R printed in large shiny letters around the hub, but if you can trust the picture of the package (which I have learned you often can't) they are printable up to a few mm from the center.

    So... another Optiarc, really? Looks like that one is a SATA-drive also, I need an ATA (or IDE, it says either or in the specs on different pages).

    Imgburn, discs or burner?

    Another four discs failed at 65-60%, I'm starting to suspect the burner giving up, and it's not even that old. Is there any way to check it? If I try burning a known good DVD-RW it works out OK every time. I bought the burner 2008-12-10 and have burnt maybe one disc a week, average. For how many discs is a burner supposed to last. It wasn't an expensive unit, cost about €30. Any recommendations if I want to get a new burner?

    Another crap disk, struggled for a long time at 85% and then failed... 8x. I guess I'll just run through it, take the faulty discs back to where I bought them and ask for a refund or a new pack (and try my luck again).

    Traxdata DVD-R 16x (made by Ritek) http://www.traxdata.com/printablemedia Never had a problem with them before I think this is my fifth 25-pack. Yeah I know, they're rather cheap, but nice large printable surface and again, never had a problem before. I¨'m thinking I've just gotten a bad batch. Or perhaps I have gotten good batches before and they're usually bad. ;-)

    But the log says OPC: No, and isn't it supposed to do that when writing the lead-in, once... Tried 8x, fail after 78%, same kind of bands in the written area. The successful write before it also has some of these bands of different color (it's very hard to get a good picture of it). Trying another 8x write with OPC on...

    Nice to know, about OPC, it's a test write and read in the lead-in - my log says OPC: No. Could you elaborate on what you mean. ;-) I have one of these: http://www.sony-optiarc.eu/products/dvddrivesdesktoppcs/ad7203a.html Weee - a successful write - in 4x, it feels like a lottery if it's going to work or not.

    What are these dips I get every 0,5GB, seems to be the same on successful burns as well:

    Imgburn, discs or burner?

    I lowered the speed to 2x the last burn to make sure it was not a speed problem, raising the speed when there's a possible problem rarely solves the problem, or does it? I'll try 8x next time then, but as there are visible bands on the burnt area I'm assuming it's a disc problem, hopefully not in the whole 25-pack. I wrote to the manufacturer and supplied the serial numbers of the faulty discs. We'll see if I get an answer...

    Imgburn, discs or burner?

    Sorry, I didn't save the log and I went through five discs that burned up to 90% before write error occured, all had increasingly lighter "bands" where they were written to. Sixth disc worked right away, no strange patterns on the disc, same looking surface on all the burnt area. So, I guess it's the discs, but thanks for the feedback, I'll see to it that I upgrade again then.
