1.06 and verbatim 16x dvd-r's

#1

I forget the media code for these things and i’m too lazy to look it up, but i was just wondering, is it normal to have very high PIE and very low pif for these? I burned at 16x, power rec on and i had less than 200 PIF’s but over 80k PIE with a max of 60 or so…

dvd-r dye is much nicer than dvd+r


#2

for PIF’s it is important the max value not the sum, because in the spots with high spikes the disc can skip in DVD players…


#3

i’m of the exact opposite opinion. -Rs burn like shit in my 716s relative to +Rs.


#4

Me too.

@ Stoneburner, do you have the scans of the SUM1 and SUM8 tests for us so we can have a look? In the FAQ there is some info on how to read the results: What do these graphs mean, have I burned a “coaster”?


#5

Also me


#6

I’m of the same opinion most -R don’t burn as well as +R in my Plex and I have had some not great results with different TYG02 Fujifilm batches. Recenty I picked up 50 Taiyo Yuden Unbranded TYG02 and they have given me impressive results so far at higher burn speeds. Just my two cents. :slight_smile:


#7

So true, except at very sloooow speeds on mine (4X).


#8

guess i’m not the only one :wink:


#9

Here’s my pie scan, ill show the sum1 later

and I was referring to the color



#10

never mind my pif was 1377 on the rescan. Very strange.


#11

what was the peak?

in my experiences, the 716 writes -R with denser PIE/F than +R. peaks aren’t terrible by any means (still higher than +R) but the totals are way up there.


#12

max was 2.

OKay, my results are in line with everybody elses. I still like the blue better than purple though.


#13

whatever floats your boat :wink: :bigsmile:
