I liked Prodisc, but the variations in quality were high. Some CD-R still Class 2 after 13 years, some were Class 5 or have C2, some unreadable.

Same with DVD, I have Prodisc S03 which have Class 3 after 13 years and some have Class 5. Burned with same DVD-writer at same speed.

Do you remember which writer?

Thats one point I like about DVD-R, it would list the writer in the quality scan, at the least with some scan-drives


Either PIONEER DVR-RW DVR-108 1.20 or HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B A106.


OK, Thanks :slight_smile:
