Hi and welcome to the forum, jimmy06! :)

Can you post a log of the Verbatim ones failing ?

 

No but its identical in respect on how it fails. On the layer switch write errors

I normally burn at 2.4x and the whole thing takes around 45 mins. i think the auto speed was a misclick. It was only a test run for the log as i'd tried a new install

Your drive might need a cleaning, you can try at the other recognized speeds, ImgBurn automatically saves the burn logs under the 'help' radio button on top. :thumbup:

How long ago did you upgrade to windows 7? When i did a test upgrade i had so many problems actually even finding the DVD drive and was forced to go back to xp. Windows 7 even though being better than vista already is still full of bugs which need to be fixed, which makes sense in why the dvd isn't fully burning to the disc. If it has been doing this ever since you installed 7 then test out your drives on a different machine with a older Windows OS to see if the drive is at fault. If the drive works on a different OS then you know the OS is at fault and vice versa.

Hope this helps.

Ever since installing windows 7....

 

i'm having the same problem! i've tried so many different media and settings and i just realised after finding your post that all my problems started when i formatted and installed win 7 from vista.

 

the error logged reads:

Failed to Write Sectors 1732544 - 1732575 - Reason: Peripheral Device Write Fault

 

and happens at 50% of the dual layer disc.

 

i wasted 10 discs and i feel like an idiot, so posting just to let others know it could be win 7 if you are having this problem.

BTW i have a SONY BDRW BWU-200S 1.0b in this machine for reference.
