    Verify says good but is lying!

    Uhm....this is weird. I put the failed discs back in to run additional tests, and this time the checksum passed. On both discs. So it seems that ImgBurn was correct; and the checksums failed due to some kind of intermittent drive screwup or Windows screwup. I apologise for wasting everyone's time, and have no idea what the hell happened...

    Ah, but I'm not burning an image, I'm burning a compilation. Except that this isn't a DVD Video disc. This is a software disc, containing lots of installers and such. That is, normal files and folders.

    In the past, verifying has proven reliable. However, I recently bought a blu-ray burner; and every so often (maybe one in three burns), there will be errors that verify doesn't catch. By which I mean, verify says "all good", but the checksums of the files on the disc don't match the versions on the hard drive. I assemble a folder of files to burn, and create a checksum file for them. I burn the files - including checksum file - to disc. Everything seems okay. Then I test the checksums, and half a dozen files will fail the test. Yet ImgBurn said the verification was okay. What the hell!?
