DVD recorder suspect

For some time I have been having artifacting problems in my DVD burns.

The suspects for the artifacts and playing problems at the end of the recordings were the recorder, the media and the player.

My previous media, Sony +DVD R, was changed onto Philips +DVD R. Problems persist.

The player (Pioneer DV525) was checked with previous recordings, made on same DVD recorder. They played fine.

So it seems the NEC DVD recorder is the culprit.

Is there a way anyone knows to check a recorder for errors?

When I had problems with recorderd / discs - I used "Nero CD Speed". It reads the disk cd/dvd from inner to outer and reports readingspeed and errors.

Good luck!

Thanks, Lars.

I did try that test now, and I am getting a "Read speed error" when the yellow and green lines get to a 3.8GB capacity, if I am guessing right.

So there seems to be a writing error indeed, and I don't know if there's any way to heal that or if it's worth it.

Besides Plextor types, which other brands are recommended as DVD recorders?
