It's hard to say without knowing more about your process or what you mean by "older DVD media".
You're burning directly from Premiere Elements, right? And the program shows that the DVD burn is complete and successful?
If so, it could be your brand of disc or the fact that you may be burning at a speed faster than the discs are rated.
Try using a quality brand, like Verbatim, and see if you get better results.
Looks like there's an issue with the dvd burner. It reads and writes CDs, and pretends to do the same with dvds, but some file transfer tests show the dvd part to be defective. I'll get a new one tom'w and try again! THanks.
Good luck with the new equipment.
Using 4x blank media should not be a problem, in and of itself. The brand, however, can make all the difference in the world.
As Steve is, I am a fan of Verbatim. I use them for all of my DVD-9 (DL) media, and Taiyo Yuden for all DVD-5's. With ~1500 DVD's burned, I have never had a failure, nor have I had a single returned disc. After several years, those two brands are 100%. It cannot get better than that.
