A co-worker refuses to verify, says it doesn't need to.  This worked a long time for him.  But now we're having problems with burned disks pixelating and just not playing well.

 

This enquiring mind would like to know ....

A verified disc may show problems after a while. So if the burn was good, but the disc went bad, then the verification doesn't mean much.

A failed verification may still be a perfectly playable disc, without any visible problems. Then the verification doesn't mean much.

A bad video file may look bad, but burn good and verify good, then the verification doesn't mean much.

 

IMHO, it is more important to invest in quality media.

What I was asking was, just how important is it to verify a disk?  Is it okay to skip the verification or not?

I skip it all the time, as I haven’t found it a helpful feature ever. But that’s my personal choice.

Frenzalre-

I've found that skipping verification doesn't affect playback, but it does affect the ability to access and convert the vob files in the VIDEO_TS folder. I'm a Mac user and often need to access those files for re-editing projects. I use MPEG Streamclip to convert vob files to dv, and it fails to complete the process and reports errors with unverified data.
