I dunno how “good” the D01 were after u burned it, but I´m not surprised about the good condition of AML 003 and MCC 004. Most DVDs show good longevity

I didn’t save the initial scan at that time. But I scanned it. And if it looked like that, I would have thrown the disc away.

I have some of these Intensos left, but I can’t burn them anymore. These fake Ricohs age very fast.

I think burn em is waste of time

Was never a fan of M01 (AM3 and 8x-Codes E01 and AE1 were better) , but in the past it was good media, actually only mediocre

Recorder: NEC ND2510A, FW. 2.15 and 2.19
Media: That’s Write DVD-R 8X
MID: OPTODISC R008
Recording speed: 4x
Burning date between 2005-2008
Scanned 2017
Stored in a wallet for 200 DVDs.

After checking more than 100 burned discs I only found one disc that has partially failed (apart from mistreated and badly scratched discs). According to the look/shades of the dye I’m assuming it was recorded at 8x using some sort of Z-CLV strategy - the outer edge of the disc is lighter shade and pitting started to form in that area.

Nice results. #1 and #3 look like new.

You can hide the disc label in the Disc Quality settings.

Good old media :slight_smile:


#960

Media: Maxell DVD-R “gold top”
MID: RITEKF1
Recording speed: 4x
Recorded: 2010
Scanned 2017

Recorded using NEC 2510A

Recorded using Asus DRW-1814BL

Both disc came from the same batch, stored in a dvd wallet, both in perfect physical condition. Results repeat across the batch, every disc that was recorded on the Asus drive has much higher error rates. Unfortunately I don’t have initial scan to see if the problem was from the beginning or it changed during time. I will examine those discs next year to see if error rates have changed.

It seems, if properly recorded, RITEKF1 has really good longevity.

Yep, RitekF1 is one of the most underestimated media. If you have a good batch you will get better burn results than with newer MCC-media
