I know this question sounds so stupid and would most probably be answered with a "Duh" or something like that. But my TDK1616DLN seems to be protesting with every media type I use to burn things. TY's media has been very reputable but I think the results (I see for myself) are otherwise... I tested the Disc Quality with KProbe and Nero's CD-DVD Speed and it turns out that most of them have very high PI values (ranges from 150-400) and very high PIF values (from 30-60). They also produce very high spikes. I know I'm missing some right tips on burning DVDs. I need help... I've been using TDK's DVD+R RicohJpn medias, Maxell's DVD-R TY batch, and Fujifilm's DVD+R TY medias. I do not overspeed the discs. I burn at their rated speed. However, I usually burn discs while multitasking. E.g. Playing Winamp, downloading stuff and surfing net all together. I use Nero and see that the burning is constant, and the cache is always full; to me, it shows that data is constantly fed to the buffer there shouldn't be any problem... (or not)? I also have about only 8GB to 10GB of free HDD space when I burn stuff. My TDK 1616DLN is connected to an individual IDE slot in my motherboard; not sharing with the HDD. What am I doing wrong? Please enlighten me!
