I just opened a new pack of Verbatim +R DL made in Singapore and the first three disks I copied failed to run. Every time the program reported it was OK. My question is is it likely that the disks are bad - all of them?
3 for 3 failure to play seems pretty bad. I've used the setup about 30 times since I bought the new DVD writer (to eliminate the "weak hardware" question) and used my prior pack of disks (Verbatim +R DL made in Hong Kong).
I'm searching for the last log file, but as it worked as far as the software is concerned I'm not sure this will help very much. But I can't find it anyway so it is a moot point. I guess a second question is where is the log file kept and is it a growing file with every action or just the last time you executed the program? I see "Log Enabled" is checked in the CloneCD Log window.
BTW, I had problems in the past and was not happy given the cost of disks at $5 a pop and constant failures. First, I found disks at Sam's Club (Verbatium - see above) at about $1.20 each which beats the heck out of the price I had been told. Second, the new DVD writer seems to have cleared up some of the problems as well.
I doubt anyone will remember this from long ago, but it is only fair that the impression I gave before be corrected by me just as publicly as I gave them the first time.
I will try a test using CloneDVD to see if that makes any difference.
