CD/DVD Drive: Matshida DVD-RAM UJ8D1

DVDs Used: Verbatim DVD-R 4.7 16x/ Verbatim DVD-R 4.7 16X Life Series

Media trying to burn: PS2 iso

O.S: Windows 10

I previously had success burning a PS2 iso with a regular DVD, but now it's telling me that the format is incompatible, also the burning process always stays at around 1%

I KNOW THIS ERROR HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT IN OTHER POSTS AND I'VE TRIED DIFFERENT WRITING SPEEDS, DIFFERENT SOFTWARE AND DIFFERENT DRIVES, DIFFERENT ISOs AND I SEEM TO GET THE SAME ERROR OR IT SAYS THAT IT COULDN'T DETERMINE THE ERROR, AT FIRST I THOUGHT THE VERBATIM LIFE SERIES DVDs WERE THE PROBLEM SO I SWITCHED BACK TO THE REGULAR ONES, NOW IT DOESN'T EVEN WORK ON THE REGULAR ONES.

Here are the results of my last log file on ImgBurn:

The first error is the one you need to focus on.

So, your drive is reporting a 'Write Error'.

Which other drives have you tested?

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GU70N on a laptop running Linux

I have at least 1 other drive I can try, but I haven't tested it.
