Could I get a hand in troubleshooting consistant read errors?

Recommended Posts

Hi there.  Longtime reader, first time posting.  Please forgive me if I neglect to share the correct information, let me know what I've missed, and I'll send it out as soon as I can.  That said...


I've been backing up my DVDs for many years.  I have almost exclusively used Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim, never the value lines (except when I was a newb).  I still have a couple of Taiyo Yuden spindles left.  I've rarely had a problem with them.


Since opening this latest bundle, I have been getting fairly consistant burn errors at around 97%.  I am now trying to ascertain whether this is caused by a bad batch of media, some type of file corruption/change in settings, drive failure or other.


The discs are TY GO2   8 x DVD -R.


The error I keep getting is an I/O Error


The error message said the SK Interpretation:  Medium Error, and ASC/ASCQ Interpretation:  Unrecovered Read Error.



This has been pretty consistant, regardless of what I have been trying to copy.



Attached is my logfile for the one I refer to above.

Hard to tell really. If they all fail, try another spindle. If that does the same, it could be the drive. If they don't, it's probably the media.
