hi guys...

i have windows 7 and i want to make new recovery discs so if my computer gets infected i can restore it back to factory settings.

problem is, when i try to make them, the first disc burns fine....and then it stops at verifying for a long time. eventually, it says "error code (insert random combo of numbers/letters here) verify failed" and it follows with "please insert a new blank DVD." if i insert a new blank DVD, then it just does the whole process over again. i've tried three times.

if it helps, i have an acer aspire 5532.

any ideas on how to fix this? thanks in advance.

Those Random numbers and letters are important and need to be precisely copied

I ran into a very similar problem with an HP running Vista and made a lot of coasters!

The solution was to use ONLY the burning software that came preinstalled with the system.
In my case I had uninstalled Roxio in favor of Nero which did not work.

I also found that in my case I had to use the +R disks, -R will not work.
Dont know why.
In the beginning there was the command line.

You also need to burn at a slow speed ... I use ImgBurn and haven't had a failure yet.
