    They the Verbatims with Azo Dye? If they're the Verbatim Life Series (a um, subline of Verbatim), that could explain it --- junk media. Do you know the media code of the bad batch?

    No clue how do i found out the media code? the disks are just the normal verbatim 4.7 gb dvd-r and they worked fine at first(burned like 20 games worked fine,now its not working)

    ps those games still work just the last 10-20 ive burned don't.....same batch of dvds too is the weird thing.

    You never answered my question (Azo or not; the packaging proclaims it, if so). If you use ImageBurn to burn, the little window that gets populated (not the separate window, the main window) would give you a partial media id.

    @infamous:

    Yep, that's the good stuff (MCC = Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation aka Azo Dye type). Billy's right in terms of a potential explanation (laser's getting weak). Never burn faster than 4x, too for future reference.
