Re: help - poor dvd-r media
I once bought 25 BULKPAQ dvds and I reckon I had to throw away 50% of them due to read errors. The trouble with these cheaper dvds is that they are usually overprints, what this means is that they failed the quality control checks first time round and so get reprinted.
My advice is to buy Arita dvds by Ritek, about 75p each. Burnt over 100 disks and could count the number that I have thrown away on one hand, to be honest I can only remember throwing 1 away.
stamp92 it seems strange that you can't even read the disks especially from your PC, usually the disks will read fine it's when you start to get to the end of the disk that the read errors occur. What software are you using to burn the dvds and are you closing the disk? I take it you are burning movies, have you created the correct dvd structure?
