I should add that this disc (TDK) has a cover printed on it. I did not print on the other discs tested.

OK, it has been 10+ months since the Initial burns. Most MIDs looking good except for PHILIPR04 :Z and maybe CMCMAG

Hi Thrasher, What was your burn speed? Just curious.

[QUOTE=jamescooley1;2653511]Hi Thrasher, What was your burn speed? Just curious.[/QUOTE]

It was burnt at 6x. I know, the scan looks horrible. I have a pretty bad scan from a slightly older 4x Verbatim BD-R as well, but the TRT is perfect.
I have recenlty been having issues with some BD-R’s during spin-up/initialization on my Lite-On drive. I hope the drive is OK…
