I currently have a Memorex 16X Double Layer burner. I always use the same media, Verbatim DVD-R 16X. For the last 2 months, more and more of my back-ups, I put in the drive, and the computer isn't recognizing anything in there. If I'm ripping 10 backups, I might get 7 to work, then the 8th won't, and then the 9th and 10th won't. I've tried to let the burner cool down, doesn't work. These back-ups are still good, they play on the DVD player, have no scratches. DVD Decrypter says, "Disc is Empty." CloneDVD2 says, Unable to read video files from D: D:/VIDEO_TS.IFO: Unable to open file. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Details: File 0 D:/VIDEO_TS.IFO 1005 IClickDVDCopy won't let me do it either, says something about the destination. So, after all this, I wanna blame it on the burner, it's about 1.5 years old and gets MUCH use. I burn every single day, at least about 30 DVDs. So, have any suggestions regarding name brands, speeds, and internal vs external?
