Interrupted Burning With Exel Dvd-R Recordable

Question

On Mac/ Moutain Lion , a DVD Project can be burned correctly on a Verbatim DVD-RW with Toast 11

but

the same process is interrupted on EXEL (or Auchan ) recordable DVD-R

Is there an explanation

The Exel and Auchan discs are re-branded generic discs. These aren't made to order, but sold in bulk to supply chains. The next batch may have a different quality.

The Verbatim DVD-RW discs are made to order, to Verbatim’s specification, and Verbatim quality control.

I also thougth Exel and Auchan disks were of bad quality (for video )

going on with different tests

I also burned a DVD project (many times)

with success on a DVD-RW of Verbatim, and failure on a DVD-R of Verbatim

the results are the same

burning an IDVD project (Apple Process)

or

with Toast 11 and a Video Ts file coming from an image disk

SO !! where is the problem

Mac, mourtain lion, burning drive, all softwares , Toats 11 etc .. seem in order

but only Verbatim DVD-RW are correctly burned

 

??

Thank you for your help

Unfortunately, Verbatim sells two qualities nowadays: the premium discs with AZO dye (including the AZO logo on the packaging), and the ‘affordable’ cheaper “Life Series”. The latter are not better than generic, according to many users, mostly based on the Media Identification Code, which points to a factory that produces lots of generic discs.

 

Have you tried burning at a lower speed than “best”? Try half of the rated speed on the box of the discs. That is known to up the burn reliability in specific cases. E.g. for “16x” discs, try burning at “8x”.

Youpi as we say in french..

atter having to "fight" with ... here very curious digital topics ..

I tried burning on my MacBook Pro (allthe preceeding tests were on my MiniMac !!)

and with exactly the same conditions , the burning of a DVD-R Verbatim was sussessfull..

which means

the drive of my Mini is "friend" only with the Verbatim DVD-RW

the drive of my MacBookPro is friend with Verbatim ..-R or/and -RW

 

WHY ???

Best regards
