    Default newbie problems burning

    I have burnt quite a few disks never had any problem until the last two disks.
    The last one I figured there was a scratch on it. But this last one I have no idea, the disk looks really clean, but I guess there could be fine scratches.

    In any case this is the error that I got....

    W 22:48:24 Retry Failed! - Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format
    E 22:49:34 Failed to Write Sectors 0 - 31 - Tracking Servo Failure
    I 22:49:34 Synchronising Cache...
    I 22:49:34 Cycling Tray after Test Write...
    E 22:49:39 Failed to Write Image!
    E 22:49:39 Operation Failed! - Duration: 00:01:48

    Have you changed you media (blank disks)? Are you using + or - format disks? Please post your burner type. Example: NEC DVD(+)RW ND-6100A The (+) is the format type.

    What is the media name?
    Look at my Link to Golden Rule of Burning. Reduce your burn speed to 4x. See if this works.

    Could you post the complete DVDD burn log?
    Have you ever done a CDSpeed Scan? If so could you post results?

    Question Nothing Changed?

    Are you using a new spindle of DVDs? DVD resellers change manufacturers all the time. Manufacturers change countries all the time. The appearance is the same but the way it is made has changed. By doing firmware updates, burning software updates, etc., etc.; keeps your computer on top of the "advances" by outside influences. Keep everything up to date reduces the risk of a bad burn!

    i tried it again on test mode with a burn rate of 2 and it got up to 60 percent and then quit

    it is a new spindle that is true.
    Not sure what sort of firmware and updates I should do

    I am using shrink and decrypter.

    We still don't know what brand of burner you have.
