I've had nothing but problems trying to burn some file to DVD the past couple of days. I don't know if the problem stems from my external DVD burner taking a fall during burning but the behaviour of IMGBurn has become very odd as a result and is driving me nuts as well as costing me many discs!
First it kept throwing up I/O errors when trying to verify. I tried not verifying but then it wouldn't burn anything to disc despite saying it had!
Then it would freeze at various points during the writing process and wouldn't cancel until I actually disconnected the burner!
Then I tried some fixes I found on the web that suggest making some settings change which didn't help a jot so i reset the defaults and finally I got some new discs (I only use Verbatim). All was well until the verify stage when I got this message:
I have absolutely no idea what layouts it is referring to or why it has started throwing this message up all of a sudden.
Here is the log of that session:

I should warn you that I have Aspergers so a lot of this techno babble is Greek to me, so any solutions proffered in plain English would be very much appreciated. :-)
Thanks in advance.
