Yes, we recently had someone notice that Verbatim used a different manufacturer for some of their Blu-Ray discs. A "bottom tier" manufacturer. I don't know about your DVDs, but there's a possibility that they've done the same there? What's the country of manufacture listed on the package? I believe "Singapore" is what you want. If it's not, they could be "junk".

 

There's also a possibility you just hit a "bad batch."

 

In either case, you seem to have proven fairly substantially that the discs are bad. See if you can return them and get some new ones.

Download and install ImgBurn here > http://www.imgburn.c...hp?act=download

 

Get your reading glasses on and click slowly reading ever click ImgBurn comes bundled with extra applications like ask tool bar. You need to uncheck them so they don't install.

 

When done place a old disc in the drive and compare it to your new disc, put the new disc in the drive.

 

Look on the packaging of both old and new where does it say they are made?

No setting on the Blu-Ray player, of that I'm sure. The only time there's a "speed" setting is during the burning phase. Did you let it burn at 16X? You may want to set it down to 8X or 4X and see if that fixes the problem. Also, try the disc in another player if you have one.

Yup. Had it burn at 16. When that didn't play I tried setting the burn at 8x and the burner didn't see the disc I'll try another player. Thanlime juice and kidney stones - Google Searchks Bob

I would do what I suggested to you in post #4 it will list the write speeds for the media with your burner!

 

Open Roxio home page and click tools get disc information, make sure your Pioneer Burner is showing in the drop down menu.

 

Post garb a screen shot like I show I want to see what the red arrows point to on your burner?

The easiest way is probably with the tiny program PrtScr, which is small, safe, and free. From www.fiastarta.com.

 

If you don't want extra software, you can do it entirely in XP.

Press the Print Screen button to capture your entire screen, then run MSPAINT, and press Ctrl-V to paste that capture into MSPaint.

Cut it down to size in Paint, then Save As a .jpg picture.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Not quite sure what the reference about no label discs being a problem. If bobbstripower followed the recommendation to purchase the brand disc mentioned in one of the posts there should't be a potential problem. Should there?

Perhaps myguggi is forseeing bobbstripower putting paper labels on the DVDs. That could bring problems since paper labels are such an erratic labeling system.

 

If he's thinking that writing on the DVDs will cause problems, he needn't worry. DVDs don't share the weakness that CDs have when you try to write on them. :)

I was not thinking of paper labels or writing on the DVDs or CDs (which is my form of "labelling"). Since bobbstripower can't tell which side is "up" for the discs. I was wondering what make of DVDs he really got. Any discs I have bought, have always identified the make (which is not necessarily the manufacturer). I would be very leery of buying "unbranded" discs.

All Taiyo Yuden Ink Jet Hub Printable media I have bought are only identified with a number around the see through hub next to the spindle hole. No other identification on the printable media face. The packaging and paper disc like label on top of the disc's when the package is opened clearly identifes the media as made in Japan Genuine Taiyo Yuden Media.

No not kidding I can see a serial number real small. Looks like 0000009361. Did Google and couldn't find anything. Got them thru Amazon so I've asked them to confirm they're not black market dvds

Says they were made in Japan which I'd think us a good sign but hey they worked right. My Irish dad always told me Dont look a gift horse in the mouth. Whatever that meant. Thanks gor all your concerns and help throughout my issues.I'll let you know what Amazon says. Maybe the external wrapping came off in the packing process..Ps just used magnifying glass in tiny letters it days vl330b300897gg jvc. So guess I'm good if it jvc Japan
