I think my dvd burner is acting weird.

I set my dvd to multisession so that I can still burn with a dvd R. After I finish downloading files I put them in a dvd that already has files in it like I always do and after the burn finished the dvd at the back looks weird I mean the marking at the back is not like the single circular thingy but there's two circular marks..I'm sorry if you don't get it but I will be posting a screen shots so that I can elaborate even more.

Then your DVD is getting scratched.
Check your DVD drive, it may have something to do with that. This is probably a PS2-esque problem(what???? haha).
Anyways, does the DVD work? If it does, there may not be a problem.
Screens would be nice too

I didn't say to check the DVD burner, I said to check te drive.
Unfortunately, you'd have to open it, but first reinstall the burner imo

Be sure that it is not a software problem by reinstalling the burner or upgrade the drivers for your dvd drive or Flash its Drive BIOS if you do OEM. Drivers for your DVD drive should be available at your Drive Manufacturer's website. Alternatively like Kisuke-kun said, u may wish to check the DVD itself to see if it actually works. On a multisession DVD, seing two rings should not be such a big issue actually, because if the disk is scratched, it should be mighty obvious.

Does the disc work? As in, can the drive read the files on it? If it does, I don't really think it matters...

It sounds like an issue with the drive either burning multisession or reading multisessions, then. Could be something that a firmware upgrade would fix.

You could try that. You should be able to find relevant updates in your drive's manufacturer's website. Let us know how it turns out. ^_^

I finally got the pictures uploaded yeah!
Spoiler:

If you look carefully you can see the other mark it's small. Kinda blurry..It's suppose to be a single mark like my other dvd's so this one is suspicious. The second mark is kinda covers the old one which is not suppose to be..not sure..

Actually, doesn't really look that bad. If you can't read the files maybe its cos they're damaged or corrupted. ^_^

I see two circles, but that's normal (unless you're pointing to a different circle). Basically, when you burn a disc, it slightly changes color - I don't know the scientific reason behind it, but it happens. It's a crude way of determining how much data is filling the disc. If you've really packed the disc full, it'll look like there's one huge circle, and you wouldn't notice the color change as it's rather subtle. Your disc is a multisession disc, right? So you didn't fill it to capacity. What you're observing is the difference between the segments of the disc that have been written to and the segments that are free space.

If certain drives can't read the disc, try closing the session (prevents further writing to the disc). There are a number of cases where a drive will not be able to read a disc if it has open sessions, or the drive will only be able to read one of the sessions on the disc. Usually this doesn't occur on the drive that burned the disc in the first place, but it's possible. If you want to be safe and have guaranteed compatibility, burn only a single session to the disc and disable multisession (ensure that the disc is FINAL). I think Disc-at-Once (DAO) also ensures better compatibility than writing by tracks (forgot the official term that software uses for that), but that doesn't make nearly as much of a difference as disabling multisessions and locking the disc after writing.
