Further to my first comment, have used DVDPro to check the media. Is manufacturer rated at 8x but has no 8x write strategy. I think Verbatim are over-rating media and I am going to take it up with my supplier.

Cannot write Verbatim 8x DVD-R at 8x without data read errors. Works fine with this media at 4x so may be a media problem.

Easy setup but I haven't found a media yet that doesn't get a popup in Nero "Not on drive's media write strategy..." Can't find the write strategy list and I'm not going to try every media under the sun.
