Windows 7: When a DVD burns too much...

When a DVD burns too much...

Hello. I have a question: when a dvd-rw driver burns more than 5 dvd-s consecutive, may there appear errors on reading? Because today I burned about 8 DVDs, then I deleted the data on my computer. Hours later, I ascertained that the last 3 DVDs i burned weren't usable(they couldn't be read by any DVD drivers). Also, is there a way to recover the data from those DVDs? (I mean that even if i let those DVDs inside for a long time, nothing happens, will for other DVDs the data is read in 10 seconds or so). Thank you for future replies!


EDIT: first, I thought it was a problem because of the burning programme i am using, ashampoo burning studio, but then i realised the first 5 DVDs were working corectly

Dvd burners do change over time, both from wear and from dirt. You should use canned air to blow out the drive then try the last 3 again. if indeed it is the dvd player then there still may be a way to salvage the data, but it will be expensive

And how can I save them? Is there a special solution that can be used to clean the DVDs or anything like that? The DVD drive unit is only half of a year old, so I don't think it may be because of its age...
