Here is your most likely culprit:

I 12:15:58 Destination Media Type: DVD-R (Disc ID: CMC MAG. AM3)

 

Don't use cheap CMC MAG discs.  CMC Magnetics makes the worst media (And ironically owns the best.) out there.  You probably got Verbatim Life Series from a brick and mortar store, which is CMC.

 

Try either DataLife Plus (NOT Life Series.) Verbatim or high quality Taiyo Yuden discs.  These kinds of discs you'll only find online in stores like Amazon.com and the like.

 

The vast majority of the problems we see here on the board are caused by CMC Magnetics discs.  Unfortunately, guess who owns Verbatim now?  Yep, CMC!  :angry:  And they HAVE changed the process of their DVD-R and DVD+R so even the good stuff that used to work no longer works on the LG WH16NS60.  So, I switched to the high quality Taiyo Yuden stuff.  However, I believe CMC also bought them out, too!  :rolleyes:  However, the high quality TY media seems to still be high quality.  It, at least, works on the NS60.  So, I'd recommend the TY DVD-R first and then try the DataLife Plus series because they may not work properly on your drive either now.  :doh:

Thank you so much! I was so confused, I thought I was doing everything right and had the right disks. Im glad it is potentially something that simple. I was able to get a few of these disks to write using a program called dvdflick but that seemed to shit the bed too or i didnt know how to use it properly and gave up on it. Thank you again!!

Not every program writes in the same way.  ImgBurn does it "best" by doing it "properly."  Also, just because a CMC disc completes burn doesn't mean it did it right.  The disc may be unplayable/unreadable afterwards.  Yes, it's possible for a burn to complete, even in ImgBurn, but the disc to be unreadable.  It's even possible to complete a write but it not actually be usable at all.  And, CMC discs don't last as long.  Even if it plays, because it's cheap, it will die sooner than a higher quality disc.

That MID is generally good, but I added the caveat that it doesn't work on all burners anymore since CMC changed the manufacturing process.  The LG WH16NS60 does not write properly to them anymore.

 

DVD+R is not necessarily better technology.  If you're more concerned about playback compatibility with older DVD players, you'll want to use DVD-R.  Any DVD player made within the last few years won't choke on DVD+R, but if you're giving movie discs to people with older players like Playstation 2's and the like, you'll want to go with DVD-R.  DVD-R is older technology, so it's "backwards compatible."  I use DVD-R because I never know what kind of player a DVD movie might be inserted into.

If CMC changed the manufacturing process is not the same MID, by the way CMC is not the same as MCC.

In my case, I'm not concerned about playback compatibility, technology evolves and luckily I never had such problems.

From my point of view I prefer DVD+R, more trustable and longer life by design, unless quality media is a crap.

There is an old article that explains it, not online anymore, but I kept a PDF copy, see it attached in this post.

Disc ID/Manufacturer ID is just a string of letters.  You can put any DID/MID on any disc, regardless of the manufacturer.  A decade plus ago, fake DID's were a problem.  Cheap manufacturers would make crap discs and put good DID's on them to trick people into buying their junk.
