    I have been making backups of my DVD's for quite a while now, and have very few problems. Now I have one I can not for the life of me figure out. Everytime I try to burn, I come up with a Spindle Servo Error. I did a sitewide search, and found nothing. Anyone out there who knows what this is and how to resolve it? I am about to cry here. I uninstalled and re-installed everything, from the software to the DVD drive. Please help???

    The Spindle Servo is the motor that spins the disc. I imagine a Spindle Servo Error indicates that the speed the disc is spinning is not correct. It could be anythings from not spinning at all to not spinning at the correct speed.

    It could be a problem with the motor or mechanism that clamps the disk to the spindle but might more likely be bad discs. If the center hole of the disc is not correct I would think it could cause this error.

    I would try different and better discs. You might also try writing at a slower speed.

    Here is some information about CD's and how speeds and spindles and center holes cause problems. The information would apply to DVD's also.

    Thanks Veblin, these disks are going back. I never thought to check on the disk hole size, but these disks are flawed. I will be sending them back on Monday...;)
