blu-ray m-disc of verbatim burning process takes longer

Hi everyone,

for 2 years I have been burning Verbatim Blu-Ray M-Discs of 25 gb with always the same sort of data, and the same amount of it at 4x.
However with the new 5 pack I have bought, the same ones as always, the burning process doesn't take 35 mins but 50, I'm just talking about the burning process, not data verification or anything else, and again same data and same amount, same burning speed.
The burning process however completes successfully and when I do a checksum of the files afterwards everything is perfect! Can someone explain to me why this new pack takes longer for nero to burn and if this should be a cause for concern, thanks!

  • Since you ran a checksum, I don't know what the concern would be.

    I haven't a clue as to why it would take longer unless the number of temporary files on your hard drive are getting too large and you need to do a disk cleanup (or Trim). About the only way I could possibly help is to see burn logs from before this batch and with this batch.

    Maybe somebody else will have an idea.

  • I have looked at all the burn logs and everything as far as I can see is the same, except as said that the burning took 15 mins longer, I wouldn't suspect it would have anything to do with temporary files, so has anyone ever had the same experience, also could it be because m-discs are harder to burn (since its a rock like material) and this is wearing the laser out or something... since not all burners can burn m-discs

  • Encoding and burning create a very large number of temporary files which can fill up the Temp folder (believe it or not) even if you have a huge amount of free space on a drive. I have a hard drive and periodically run the Windows Disk Cleanup utility. When it tells me how much space it can regain, I check the boxes for Temporary Files and Recycle Bin. After it runs, I reboot. If I had a SSD, I would manually run the Trim function after rebooting if it doesn't run automatically.

    The fact that it takes 15 minutes longer for each burn doesn't seem to fit that scheme but it never hurts. Does the log indicate that the write speed is the same?

    I don't think burning M discs would do anything to the laser. If there was a laser problem, you would be getting error messages.

    Note that very few users hang around in here longer than it takes to get their problem solved so waiting for that kind of help can be a very long process.
