DVD+R DL burning issues (yes, I've read the sticky)

Recommended Posts

Just in case I am missing something I wanted to post about my experience with burning non-Verbatim DVD+R DL media.

 

I know I have been able to do this successfully in the past on this computer, with this drive, with the same firmware, and I believe with this same media. Today it failed. I did upgrade to latest firmware with no change. The media I am using (Memorex 8x) appears to use ritek dye, and I've seen Verbatim (2.4x preferred) recommended to resolve, or possibly replacing the drive. Here is my log:

Please note I had multiple failures with the same data where there were no buffer recoveries. These logs are actually from when I reduced the amount of data and I am still seeing the same errors.

 

Basically, I am wondering if there are any other suggestions. I am fine with DVD-R DL media if that is generally more reliable. I only burn data DVDs with backups of email from terminated users at my company, and the occassional ISO for installation of software.
