I have an NEC DVD-writer which, unfortunately, seems unable to verify the disks that it burns. A disk will burn successfully but any verifies I try to perform (with Beyond Compare; nero's cdspeed or other programs) will fail 50% of the way through the disk. However, the dvd's I burn play perfectly in standalone players.
Since I need a way of verifying my burns before I can archive them and since it isn't practical to watch every dvd from beginning to end in a standalone player to do so, I decided it would be best to buy a seperate dvd-reader drive and verify the disks using that.
So this is my question: Which dvd-reader drive is recommended for this sort of task? I need a drive that will handle many different types of disks well and that provides as high a quality of integrity checking as possible. I've heard a rumor that LiteOn drives are very good at this sort of thing. Can anyone give me their opinion on what dvd-reader drive is good for this? As all the dvd-reader drives are now extremely cheap the only real reason to choose one over another would be quality.
