    Ongoing Problem Burning

    Just an update, burning discs with the slimline 2011 Matsushita UJ-8A8 drive in my MacBook produces excellent burns that never skip and scan very well. The new ASUS DRW-24B3ST produces poorer burns that do skip. I've resolved this thread's problem, at least until the slimline drive fails. It appears new DVD-only optical drives are trash.

    Another interesting note, I've been getting better burns (scanning at around 95) with the 2011 Matsushita UJ-8A8 drive in my notebook than with the brand new ASUS DRW-24B3ST (scanning at around 90). Discs are scanned on the ASUS because it's the only drive that supports scanning. Perhaps age and form are not the only factors.

    No disk integrity problems confirmed through Windows verification and SMART.

    Only a disc quality scan of the disc that just failed to verify (as per the log in post # 45) - if your Asus supports it. That's where I was heading with the last line of my previous post. Here is a freshly burned scan of the "bad" image and the log. With the "bad" image the scan is ALWAYS 77. With the "good" image (bad image re-ripped through a virtual drive), the scan is ALWAYS 95. ??? Verify fails on every drive I've tried only with this image. I can provide the 95 scan as well.

    You're right, the spot that verify fails on is different. Continuing to think about the image, I mounted it as a virtual drive, "ripped" it again, then burned. Burned great on the first try on the ASUS. 95 score on discspeed. This is after 5 failed verify coasters from the original image. In fact, I tried burning this exact image on the first page of this thread, and it also failed. I forgot about that. I've had this happen before with IMGBurn. Verify consistently fails until the image is mounted in a virtual drive then ripped again. I'm forgetting the Matsushita drive completely for now, because it refuses to burn these DVD+R DLs. It's 6 years old, so its burning capacity must be on the way out. I've burned a few other DL images without issues. I'm not sure why this happens, because as you say data is data. Is there any further information I can provide?

    I bought a third spindle from another store just to see what would happen. Same results. All these failed burns had one thing in common, the image. I burned another image on the ASUS and it came out fine. The Matsushita just refuses to burn these discs at all. The question now is what's wrong with the image...

    Thanks for the continued assistance. This is what happens on my drives with these brand new MKM-003-00 discs. Second spindle (I took the first one back to the store). These are 20 packs. Matsushita UJ-8A8 Notebook - Fails OPC. If OPC is skipped, L0 can't be set. ASUS DRW-24B3ST - Burns but fails on verify. I also reconnected the three month old LG GH24NSC0 - fails on verify. ??? Next thing I'll do is burn without OPC on the ASUS, but my hopes are low...

    I exchanged them for another 20-pack spindle just in case. These are Verbatim DVD+R DL AZO discs. In my ASUS drive, this is what happens instead. This happened on the last spindle too. Always fails in the same place. I bought this drive new 6 days ago.

    I just picked up some Verbatim DVD+R DLs and this is happening on all of them. What's going on here? If I skip OPC, it says it can't set L0.

    This is unrelated but I dug out a CD-R burned by my Sony CDRW drive from 2002 and ran Nero Discspeed on it. Not bad for a cheap CD-R burned 15 years ago. It feels like you can't buy a drive of this quality anymore, or CDs are easier to burn than DVD/BR.

    Scratch that, all the following burns skip. New drive time. Maybe I'll get the same model as my friend, HL-DT-ST UH10LS20. It's 7 years old and burns perfect DVDs.

    Well, setting IMGBurn to DAO on my drive fixes the skipping, though incremental worked fine before. The good burn on my friend's BD drive was incremental also. Go figure.

    I burned a Verbatim DL DVD in my friend's LG BD drive and it plays perfectly, so it must be my drive (again). Both DLs and SLs skip with my drive. I only use Verbatims. The LG DVD writer I got in May is 94 days old i.e. 4 days out of warranty. Should I pick up another LG, probably a BD one this time, or perhaps buy a used drive?

    Well, after about 2 months of burning the new HL-DT-ST drive is cranking out Verbatim DVD-Rs that skip, though they verify fine. Could it be the player? DVD-Rs burned by my laptop drive (Matushita UJ-8A8) also skip, but that drive is 6 years old.
