Problem burning DVD+DL

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm getting the following error when burning a double layer disc from Maxell. I've wasted 6 disks up to now trying to figure it out, but with no success. The error always occurs at the layer break when veryfing the burned media. This is my log:

Is there any way I can succesfully burn the remaining disks with Imgburn because I actually bought a 25 disk spindle and now I'm reaIizing that I've wasted all this money on this junk.

Here's your problem:

I 18:16:12 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: CMC MAG-D03-64)

 

You can always continue using ImgBurn to burn these discs and you may get some success, but the bottom line is CMC Magnetics makes trash discs.  They are the worst manufacturer of optical discs out there.  Companies love to use them because their products are so cheap and they can charge so much for them.  But, the thing is the quality matches the price: cheap.

 

The nature of cheap media is you may get some burns that complete successfully and some that won't.  However, those that do complete may not be recognizable as playable in a player.  Or they will decay and die far sooner than quality media.

 

You can always try different hardware, but that generally won't help the problem here.  Your best fix is to get Verbatim DataLife Plus DVD+R DL.  NOT the Life Series DVD+R DL you will find in brick and mortar stores.  They will be CMC.  You can only find Verbatim DataLife Plus DVD+R DL on online stores like Amazon.com and Verbatim's own web store.  Verbatim DataLife Plus is the best out there.  And for DVD DL media, it's the only reliable kind out there, although I had success with TDK's kind years ago.

 

Nice to know there are other people who still remember Pirates Of Darkwater.  :)

@dbminter: Thank you kindly for your advice :) .Nevertheless what do you think I should try to do with the remaining disks because unfortunately I can't return them back since I bought an entire Maxell DVD+DL 25 disk spindle not knowing they were CMC junk :(. Do you think for example checking the option Perform OPC before write in Imgburn could be a workaround? Also I've searched for a firmware update for 24D5MT model, but I didn't find anything for it.

Since you seem intent on using these discs, go ahead and try enabling OPC.  It won't do any good, IMO, but the worst you'll be out is a disc you can't use.  Personally, I always return CMC media.  And when I couldn't, I just threw them out.  They really are pretty much worthless.

You're right. In the end you're better off spending a bit more on quality media like Verbatim then just wasting all your money by experimenting with cheap media.

There's an old Spanish saying that basically translates as "The cheap comes out expensive."  I lost about $1,000 trying to troubleshoot issues before I ever learned of CMC.  Once I came across the concept, I did my research and it turned out the reason the burns were failing was Optodisc had switched from their own quality DVD-R to CMC, which was causing all my problems.  I WAS buying quality media; it was the company that turned on me, so I turned my back on that company and never brought a product of theirs again.  And, now, I don't know, nor do I care, if they're still in business.  You only get 1 chance to make a good impression and they blew it to make a few extra bucks.  :greedy:

 

I discovered Optodisc is still in business and their website is lying through their collective teeth!  They claim each batch of their discs is manufactured under a strict quality control so that each batch you buy is as reliable as the last batch you bought.  LIARS!  I mean, maybe now they make quality media again; I just won't trust them.  :thumbdown:
