AML Media

I just bought a 25 pack of DVD-R 4x and the guy told me they were Riteks, when I got home and popped one in the computer, it turns out they are AML. I looked around and couldnt find much info on these, other than they were junk. My question is how bad did I get ripped off for 23 bucks? And why do they only write at 2X? I bought them primarily for my PS2, anyone use them for this?

Thanks

Guess they ripped you off a bit. :wink: They’re below average quality and many writers do not support them. Made in Hong Kong :Z

The manufacturer is using a new media code to confuse the buyers I guess since the other media codes used on the same factory is known as low quality.

Other media codes from same factories as these:

AN30
AN31
AN32
AN35
INFOSMART01
IS001

Do a search on those codes (for example at www.dvdrhelp.com or in our DVD media test forum) and you should get more hits.

Thanks

I have a liteon 411S and they work OK in my PS2, so I guess I am happy.

Burned Sky DVD+R at 2.4X using Lite-on 451s@851s
They burn at 4X, but it is very ugly…

on a side note, I bought a 10 pack of Maxell DVD+Rs from Wal-Mart, and some of the discs were RICOHs that burn fairly well @8X, but some of them were AML, strange I thought. Anyways, they burned fairly well at 8X also.

Hmm. Just noticed this thread because it got bumped…

Here’s a related thread about AML -R media…
