Just bought a spindle of Traxdata dvd+r 4x which is RICOHJPNR01, supposed to be very good media. However, I’m not satisfied with the result and get much better burns with the Traxdata dvd-r which is RitekG04.
Is the Traxdata RICOHJPNR01 known to be some kind of B-grade media or fake?
I’m using the maddog 2F7 firmware on my 2510A, which allows 6x writing on the ricohjpnr01 media, but I’m only using 4x since it gives much better burns (but still not as good as with the ritekg04).
Also, I don’t really know where to draw the line between a good and a bad burn, so can anyone tell me if the burns done with the dvd+r media perhaps are ok after all? And does these kind of error affect how long the disc will live?
DVD+R, RICOHJPNR01, burnt at 4x
DVD-R, RITEKG04, burnt at 4x
