Bought some discs a few months (3 different brands) to see which if any worked best.
Woolworths DVD's didnt work (maybe that was a message from god)
Kodak Discs - Worked perfecrtly
Tesco DVD's - Worked perfectly
so couple of days ago decide to purchase the Kodak discs but on every single disc i burnt (4) i got the 'Unable to recover TOC' error message.
not to worry i thought, so i took them back to the shop and explained they didnt work for what i purchased them for and got a refund.
so to be sure i bought the Tesco discs again knowing that the 24 discs ive burnt previously worked great.
1st 3 discs i burnt from the new batch i got the same message!!!
hmm, now baffled i wasnt sure what to do other google the issue.
in the process of surfing for a solution i found the very last disc in my old pack of Tesco discs, popped that into my machine and burnt the image perfectly veryfied the disc and all is working great.
so try a 4th disc of the same brand from the new pack again after getting success but no luck, i still get the 'Unable to recover TOC'
knowing my drive is fine and burnt images perfectly before it cant be a driver issue with the drive.
having a full pack of 25 discs that all burnt and now cant get a single disc to burn.
heres my log anyway so if you got any ideas please let me know.
