Right, they do make discs to fit burton bindings on other non-burton boards. You will need to get a set. They might not charge you for them if you bought the bindings new.

Yes many people have had this issue. But most people are too busy to hold your hand through something this basic and snowboarding 101. Pick up the phone.

I think I had this same problem if I understood you correctly. When you try and mount your bindings you line up the holes on your disc with the mounting holes on your snowboard but its always the last screw thats off and doesn't go in? If thats the case then its your snowboard thats fucked. Take out a tape measure and check the measurement of the binding holes on your snowboard. Mine were off and also misaligned.

I didn't know this at first, I thought it was the disc on my Cartels so I shaved off a bit to make the hole wider. I rode the board about 4 times but over the summer I had time to check over the whole thing thats when I found out the holes were mis-drilled on the board. Emailed Mervin about it and they were cool, asked for photos and said take it back to the store. The guy there couldn't believe it, but confirmed. I was supposed to get a new Lib board but the dumb distributor here in Europe took forever, 2+ months. Season was approaching so I asked for money back from the store and bought something else. Everyone was cool about it, nothing against Mervin. Shit happens, but looks like it did again.

I had the same issue on a 2014 Gnu Carbon Credit blem I picked up for ultra cheap... Holes on board were off. Heres an Idea that worked for me... My 4x4 disc wouldn't line up right due to holes being slightly off on board, so I tried a different pair of bindings that had discs that were slotted. I turned the slots parralell to board and it worked just fine. So an easy fix for you may to be just finding some slotted discs to fit whatever bindings your using...... Good luck!

Interesting, this problem seems to be more common than I thought. I'd return the board if I were you like I did. No reason to pay full price and put up with something that has a defect, thats what warrantees are for.

Same Issue
 
Have a 2011-2012 Gnu Riders Choice. All stoked to throw my new 2013-2014 Cartels on there and I can't get all 4 to line up using the 4x4 discs provided by Burton. Hmmm...who might be at fault Burton or Mervin? I'm going with Mervin. Goofy bastards.
