How Necessary is Verifying?

Recommended Posts

How important is the Verify process?

 

I've burned/verified 5 dvds(from one original file on my hard drive) without a comment coming up on the log. I'd like to just burn from now on. Is this risky?

 

Thanks

vision, No its not neccessary to verify after you burn, and it doesn't effect the outcome of the burn itself, but to myself its rather important to have that verify stage always on as it is what makes sure what you have burn't to disc matches exactly what the source of the burn was. If you want to just burn an image without verfying just uncheck verify. The only risk here is you won't know about a problem on the burn't disc until you go to use it and it messes up. :)

ImgBurn doesn't have an error rate. That's down to your media and your drive.

 

The error is just reported. You can't ask the software to fix a hardware problem. :)

You'd be surprised at how many people can have successful burns and then failures during the verify stage.

 

Drives just aren't very good at reporting write errors on dodgy discs whereby they then fail verify miserably and PIPO scans looks more like rainbows that grass (green = good, orange/red = bad !)

I'm not surpised at all. =))

 

 

I always Verify. Because, you never know when that one burn will burn but fail to verify. And, you'll be glad you had it done when it does. However, by the same token, I've seen burns that burn and verify and still failed for whatever reason. For instance, a burn can complete and be just fine, but, if the contents weren't created right for whatever reason, the disc may not be "good."

I prefer to verify for those extra few minutes and then know immediately if there are any problems :)

And with your graphs, cruley, it's a must!

I stopped verifying when my burns from external HDD to internal burner started to fail at the verify stage. Once in a while I will burn from 'C' drive and verify just to make sure all looks well, but they all play fine on my stand alones and pc without the verify step.... ;)
