Probably it'll be too much technical effort to try and recover the data, assuming it was actually written in the first place

Depending on the program it may be possible to download it (cough)

as it was deal or no deal my only hope then is YT but just can't understand why the dvd loses the data after recording from a dvd machine? 9 times out of 10 its ok. even if its proctected

Depends on many things...quality of the media, the laser on the drive etc

That's about right for media. IIRC it has about a 10% fail rate, so in a box of 10 disks one may not work.

Burning to DVD is very old school. Putting video onto on NAS ad streaming it is the way forward.

No such animal. Even the best makes have duff batches.

If you are talking about a standalone recorder rather than a PC drive one thing to resolve this issue would be to use a DVD recorder with built in hard drive. Record the programmes to the hard drive then copy to DVD as necessary. The big advantage of this is that if the DVD screws up you just chuck the disk away, stick a new one in and copy it again.

If you have an tv point near your pc you could probably get a USB TV freeview decoder then set it up to record programs you want to the HDD then you'll be able to check the programs have been recorded and if so dump em onto DVD
