    Burned & Verified Discs Saying They're Blank

    Tom, Thanks a lot for that tip. I'll turn off the option to delete after verification and keep an eye out for that.

    Burned & Verified Discs Saying They're Blank

    I thought the same thing, which makes it all the more confusing. I think the drive must be going bad because the last three burns I've tried have made it at most 10% in and then given me something like the following: I 11:31:19 ImgBurn Version 2.1.0.0 started!

    Burned & Verified Discs Saying They're Blank

    It looks like you hit the nail on the head. I tried three of the "broken" discs in a buddy's computer, and all of them worked fine. Any idea what I can do about that short of replacing the drive? If it was a desktop, even that wouldn't be a big deal, but it's more of a pain since the drive is in a laptop.
  4. I've just started having this problem very recently: I burn and verify a DVD on quality media (Verbatim MCC-003-00), but when I put it pack into my computer, it says that the disc is blank. However, I just watched one of them that contained video last night in my set-top player and didn't have any problems. Why would my set-top player work better than my computer's drive? How can I tell if the problem is with my drive, the media, ImgBurn, or something else?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    I'm guessing that the problem was just that my drive can't handle 8x. The average burn rate when it was set to 8x was still less than 5x, so switching it to 4x hasn't really cost me any more time, and all of the burns at 4x have been OK. I can't tell how good because I can't get Nero CD-DVD Speed or DVDInfoPro to work on either of my machines, but hopefully I can find a friend with a drive that supports it so I can compare the Nexxtech's to the Verbatim's; that is when I'd be truly happy with the new media.

    Using the MCC-003 Verbatims, I've done one burn and got one coaster. A 0% success rate so far isn't encouraging for such "fantastic" media.

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    If, for example, I have a movie backed up on a crappy Sony disc that skips and hangs in parts, if I rip it to an iso and then burn that on the Verbatims, should the movie work without those problems or would the skips and hangs come with the rip and thus also happen on the Verb's?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    take a look here http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=2168 you can grab dvdinfo pro here http://www.dvdinfopro.com/ For some reason neither dvdinfopro nor Nero's CD-DVD speed tool will do the scans for me on my laptop and the DVD-ROM drive in my desktop doesn't support the feature. Since I can't find much help from the sites of either of those apps, any idea why the scans would just hang forever after I start them in both apps?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    I read in one of the reviews on Newegg of those Verbatim's that the media id is MCC 003, which I found are supposed to be rated up to 8x. Should I only burn at 4x to be safe or should I be fine burning at 8x since these are such quality discs? How can I tell exactly how good the burn was? I always use the verify against the image feature in imgburn, but I've read posts where people were talking about "scans" of their discs. Does imgburn do this or do I need something like Nero's cd-dvd speed application? What are things to look for in these scans? I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some of these discs! Thanks much!

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    I can't believe what I noob I feel like given I've been working with this stuff for over a year, but every month I seem to find out something new and critical. What benefit does booktyping the discs to DVD-ROM give? Oops. I hit post too soon. Is it something standard that you will get better compatibility in set-top players if you set the discs to be -ROM's instead of +R's or -R's or does it very widely from player to player?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    Besides the discs (maybe it was just a dozen discs or so) from this one spindle, I've had at least a 95% success rate with these discs. I found the media ID (AML002) here under the 4th-class media section. The description on this site of these discs is: Although I have had very good success with burning and watching these discs, I am concerned about how long the discs will last. I would estimate I have somewhere around or over 1000 discs burned on this media, so it would be expensive both in terms of time and money to copy these over to some quality media (these discs? I can't find anything about the media's ID on the site). Would it be worth it? I would be devastated to lose everything I've burned. How long could I expect the 4th-grade and 1st-grade media to last? Thanks much!

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    A previous post mentioned making sure that the Verbatim's come from the MCC dye. When I search for verbatim dvd+r datalifeplus and get this page: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817130950 I can't find anything about MCC or the dye. Are these different but just as good or are they the same thing?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    I get them from Circuit City. I know they're cheap, but like I said before, I've tried several different brands and these are the only ones that seem(ed) to work for me. I opened up another spindle of the same type of DVD+R's and haven't had any problems with ten burns. I tried searching for something like "verbatim mcc" on Google, but wasn't too sure about any of the results. Could you recommend a good retailer?

    Verifying & Tray Cycling Problems

    Follow up: How can I tell if my drive is going bad? Any diagnostics? Also, is there a way to verify my burns against an image if the verification that follows a burn in ImgBurn fails? I know Nero has something to check if the disc sectors are good, but a) I don't have Nero I'm not sure if it's free and c) I want to also verify it against an image. Thanks much! Sorry to be flooding the message board, but where could I look for a driver update? The info I've found on various websites says that since I have an OEM drive that came with my notebook, I have to go through the vendor. In this case, I have a Compaq Presario R4000, but the website only has a driver update for a different drive; I can't find firmware for mine anywhere.
