How Important Is It To Verify The Burn?

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.

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 ....




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.
