Without knowing any more about this situation (hardware specifics,
details on the DVDs, ageds, file sizes, etc.), I usually follow these
general rules:

1) Burn the DVDs slower than their maximum rated speed.  The more
important the data, the slower the burn, but usually not below 4x.

2) Verify the DVDs while/after burning in the burner AND also by
reading them in a different brand and model DVD reader (or burner).
If it's a video DVD, also play it in a commercial DVD player.

You can test the DVDs and the burner(s) this way by using different
brands of DVDs (if some fail), etc.  I've also had DVDs go bad, which
is really annoying, but it's rare and hasn't happened yet on any
critical backup DVDs.

Without more information as I said above, that's about all I could tell you.

HTH.
