    sorry for this being a repeat, but I think I might have posted in the wrong category the first time. Please forgive me.

    Orphius, if you are out there I saw you mentioned something like this in one of your posts a while back...

    I have Ritek 4X (identified as RITEKG04)DVD-R's. After burning, some of them have a inner ring (about 1/2 cm thick) that seems "discolored" compared to the rest of the disk. A good number of these discs fail after burning; specifically, they will jump or freeze etc during playback around the 6-8 minute mark (where I'm assuming this ring resides). Other identical discs appear to burn "perfectly" (i.e. no ring). Does anyone know what is causing this? I use a Plextor 708A and I'm thinking that for some reason it is adjusting the laser power between discs, or, perhaps changing the write speed though I don't think this is the case since DVD Decrypter doesn't give me any messages about changing the write speed.

    Also, before the DVD-R's are burnt, there is a very thin ring on the disc at approximately the position where the thick, discolored ring will end after the burning process. Anyone know what this thin ring is and if it's normal? Again, some discs seem to burn fine in which case this thin ring completely disappears after the burning process.

    Think I'll be going back to +R soon...

    Thanks everyone.

    I have the same ring on all my ritek media. it is light coloed before burning and darker afterwards. Seams to me a normal thing with ritek as it exists on all there disks. I have ritek /ridata branded and matte and printable it is on them all. dosent sema to bother anything maybe it has something to do with the top layer ???

    After my "good" burns, you cannot tell that there ever was a ring. It's only remains on the discs that do not work afterward. ??? I guess that's not the same with you.

    the light colored ring near the inner circle about 1/4 thick turns a darker purple than the rest of the disk. but all burns are good. I have done over 1,500 of them the same on all.

    Just curious, but do you have any idea what that ring is there for in the first place?

    I know they're not the same disk but occasionally, 1 in 50 my cheap Lazers dvd-r's will stuff up during the burn process, and that inner ring you're talking about is actually a little thicker than it normally is on a good copy, just not sure what it means.
