Yes, 2 logs from the same failed new DELL computer. The older computer is a also DELL but its drive, which works well, is completely different. It's a after market drive with a door, whereas the new DELL uses one of those slot insert drives.
So, no, not saying the same HL LG DVD drive model is in both... only the new DELL.
I'm still going to try those Verbatim DataLife Plus disks you suggested and see what happens, even though, it doesn't exactly explain what's happening in this case. But, it would be another data point. The fact that the new DELL can verify those CMG disks made on the old machine says a lot. It almost seems like the new DELL isn't burning "deep enough" for it to read disks it makes, whereas the other better quality drive can still read those same disks just fine- it's just a better reader.
It's a new machine so before I can get DELL to replace the drive, I have to convince them that there's something wrong with it. I'm guessing if I can't get the new DELL to verify the Verbatim's, that might be an argument for drive replacement. They might argue that because the Windows 10 versions are different, that could explain the inability of the new drive to verify (like, maybe Creator Pro did something differently at the driver level). Who knows. I'll post back after I've tried the Verbatim DL+'s.
