Hi.Did you try burning at different speeds?Like 16X or 24X?If you did and still the burner burns with the same pattern as above then the burner may be faulty.
The best burner out there is a Plextor PlexWriter Premium that comes at a premium.
*WRONG* and I say that *AS* an owner of the Plextor Premium drive. I'd take my LiteON LDW-411s over the Premium any day, and the LiteON DVD burner costs the same, if not less (usually less) in most areas.
I have come across several types of discs that the Plextor Premium does not burn as well as other burners. Even the LG 8525B beat it out a couple of times. The worst example I've come across of the premium's incompatability is with generic Lead Data 40x CD-Rs. It can burn them at all, and most of the time refuses to even start burning them, whereas every other burner I own burned them just fine, even *quite* well even at 40x. The Plextor could do almost as good as the other burners, but only when it slowed down to 8x to burn the discs.
The thing that makes the Plextor Premium good is Plextools... but all the cool features of Plextools are now unsupported (like Gigarecord). So this is not a drive I would personally recommend. I only ever hook it up for doing reviews, the rest of the time it sits outside of my case
