    What brand were the disks, and also what speed did you write to them at?
    I use traxdata which are quite expensive, some verbatims, loads of tuff disc, and a few ridisc xtreme disks, all work perfectly fine, ridisc xtreme is a little crap though. The backups work fine, but around 4-6 in a tub of 25 wont work, so think of it as your buying 20 disks. ;)

    Most problems are caused by cheap media, so try something like traxdata or verbatims.

    I have used ridisc xtreme and they are not very good disks, try to avoid CMC mag, they are not good. Ritek, verbs, traxdata, are good.
