  1. You should get a new and better burner. You won't be sorry you did.
  2. You should stick with Verbatim if you want a good quality DL disc. To read more about it go here.
  3. Sorry LUK. When you said "you guys" I thought you were including me.
  4. I never said his problem was with ImgBurn LUK. I told him I felt it was a media problem.
  5. If you're purchasing them on a spindle, and the label on the spindle says Verbatim find the bar code on the label. Look to the left of the bar code and you should see an area that tells where the discs were made. If you're purchasing them and there is no way to verify they are Verbatim, other that on the disc, they could be counterfeit. They could also be counterfeit even if there is a label on the spindle. I haven't heard of Verbatim discs being counterfeited but that doesn't mean no one is doing it. Best of luck to you. Let us know how things turn out.
  6. Best Buy sells the 15 disc spindle. The discs are for 8x burning. I doubt you can burn them at 2.4x. I've heard about people having problems with these discs so they might not be from Singapore. I've never bought them so I've never looked to see where they're from. Newegg sells the 10, 15, 20 and 30 disc spindles made by Verbatim. I know nothing about where any of them were made. Go here to see what they have. I did purchase a few 20 disc spindles from Newegg several years ago. They were not from Singapore so I shipped them back. I hope this helps you.
  7. I purchased DL Verbatim discs from Amazon (20 Pack, 2.4x, Branded) about 2 months ago and they were from Singapore. My local Best Buy always has the Singapore Verbatim but they charge a lot more than Amazon unless you get them while they are on sale.
  8. Welcome to the Imgburn forum Drogy. The reason your disc(s) cannot be written to at 2.4x because it only supports burning at 4x, 6x and 8x. That is why you got the "Write Speed Miscompare" error. Your problem with being unable to verify layer 1 is an issue I've not only read about over the last 4 or 5 months but a friend of mine has experienced as well. Get some Verbatims rated for 2.4x burning (it should state on the box that the disc(s) can be burned at 2.4x to 6x). Make sure the discs were made in Singapore (it will say where they were made on the box label, in small letters). You shouldn't have a problem with these. It appears your burner has the latest firmware so you should be fine here.
  9. To paraphrase an old saying "You Can Show Someone a Solution, But You Can't Make Them Think".
  10. Hi MikeonTV. Welcome to the ImgBurn forum. To try to help you please provide us with the ImgBurn log.
  11. Successfully burning 1 game only means you've gotten lucky. Look at it this way, you've unsuccessfully burned more than 1 game. That should tell you something. You have probably made more coasters in your few burns than I have made in thousands of burns. You don't have to take my word if you don't want to but just search around this forum, as well as other forums, and you'll find other knowledgeable people who say the same thing. Your drive appears to be a Lite-on OEM drive. You could see if there is an update to the firmware for it. If you find an update use it to flash your drive. This won't change the fact that you should use Verbatim discs but you should always try to keep the firmware updated.
  12. Slower is not always the best. It depends on the combination of media and burner. why is there a 2.4x setting on image burn? is it not actually writing on 2.4x when that is selected or something? Some discs allow you to burn at 2.4x. There is a difference of opinion as to whether slower is better but I can tell you from personal experience that I have burned quite a few DL discs (all Verbatim) at 2.4x, and I have never had a bad burn. I also have never had a bad burn on my 52x CD's (also Verbatim) that I have burned at 4x. Add to that the large number of 8x Max DVD5 discs, burned at 4x and the 16x Max discs, burned at 6x (yep, all Verbatim) with only 2 or 3 bad burns (all on the 8x Max discs). You can see, from my experiences, that burning slowly works exceedingly well.
  13. I guess other members can fill in. Could it be that i burnt the game at 2.4x speed and not 4x 6x or 8x? i thought the slower u burnt it the better but i didnt see that you need to write at a certian speed for certain dvdr's. I see several possible problems. 1. You're not setting the Book Type to DVD-ROM 2. The only DL disc you should use is Verbatim (the ones made in Singapore). 3. The discs you are using don't show a 2.4x write speed. You are actually burning at 4x. While I don't burn any game discs (only movies) I believe that what I've mentioned applies to what you are doing as well as to what I'm doing.
  14. Copying rental movies is against the law.
  15. Welcome to the club. It's quite a club...and we have a Susan now.... Don't forget that, according to she wants to be slapped.
  16. NewEgg has a 100 disc cake box for $28.99. Go here.
  17. AND...make the levitate... Making a computer levitate...
  18. Susan, I thought you found out later that you had been mistaken about being wrong back then.
  19. Because of the jobs I get faxed to me, my business computer is on 24/7 (I do turn the monitor off when I am not using the computer). The computer I built a few years ago is only turned on when I am using it. The longest that one had been on is around 2 days (except when I was stressing it right after I completed building it). Other than shutdowns for normal maintenance and restarts my business computer has been on for at least the past 7+ years. I do not have it go into standby nor do I have the HD turn off at any time. I consider myself VERY lucky because I have never had any failure other than the ZIP drive and DVD-ROM drive that came with it.
  20. I cannot believe that after what everyone here as told you, you think that the discs you are using are good. Just because you have been lucky and had good burns does not mean the discs will be any good next year (or even tomorrow). None of us are telling you to get Verbatim discs because we own the company. We're telling you because of all of the knowledge we've gained over the years through use and testing of the discs. You have to do as you see fit. Just don't say we didn't warn you.
  21. That's a good price for them but if you go here you will find them for $27.99. I've purchased from Micro Center several times and I've never had a problem.
  22. If you answer yes you will probably see the DVD freeze when it comes to the layer break. It's more complicated than placing the layer break between the two titles. You must make sure that there isn't less data written on layer 1 then there is on layer 0. I have a question for you. Since dual layer Verbatim discs (You are using Verbatim media, aren't you? If not, you should be.) are quite a bit more expensive than single layer discs (you can buy 4 single layer Verbs for the cost of 1 dual layer Verb) and DVD's don't take up much space to begin with, why do you want to combine titles? It would seem to me you are causing yourself a lot of work and spending more money for no good reason other than saving a little space. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not telling you not to do it. All I am saying is I don't see any good reason for it, but that's just my opinion.
