What Burner Do You Suggest?

Okay, I've made about ten coasters in the past two days with three different brands of DVD+R DL's, and I am getting fed up with it. Things we're going very smoothly for a while, I made 4 or 5 good backups with no problems, and then all hell let loose. ImgBurn just magically started giving me these error messages either at the beginning or halfway through, and I've lost a lot of money. I just want to buy a new burner because it seems likely that the problem is with that since it is old, and the most current firmware for it is from 2005. Can someone please offer some suggestions. What works for you? I just want a RELIABLE burner that will burn just about any brand of DL media (particularly Sony, Memorex, and Matrix so I can finish up the rest of the blank DVD's that I have >_<), but I'm not looking to spend over $100. I just want one that will consistently burn DL movies because that's pretty much all I will be using it for, except for the occassional audio cd.

chron _ 4, I personally like Pioneer drives but this is just a one of many good brands. Plextor, liteon, there are so many...... I'm sure others will post different preferences for burners so you can compare. By the way, what error messages are you getting? It might not be your drive crapping out, although it is an older model. :)

Pasted below is the log, and attached is a picture of the error box I am receiving. This is with Verbatims >_<!! I find it very hard to believe that the problem isn't with ImgBurn itself, because burning was working great a few days ago with consistent burns so I highly doubt it is a problem with the drive or media no matter how much you tell me otherwise. It just magically stopped working and decided to become a coaster dispenser. Has anyone experienced that? Well I think I'm going to go pick up a new burner today (Pioneer DVR-112D if they have it), but I won't open the packaging until I get some closure on what the actual culprit is because after I buy this drive I'm about broke. Please help guys, thanks.

I find it very hard to believe that the problem isn't with ImgBurn itself

 

if that was the case then everyone using it would be experiencing the same problem

 

sorry, you're probably right, but do you think its the burner or something else?

There is no magic burner that will do what you want from above.

 

It's not the burner but the media. Only use verbatim +DL and a half way decent burner use the 112 you bought

 

 

Well I think I'm going to go pick up a new burner today (Pioneer DVR-112D if they have it), but I won't open the packaging until I get some closure on what the actual culprit is

 

 

=))

So you intend on keeping it in the packet.

 

Do that with the blanks you have as well and your problems will go away.
