Hi, I have lurked for a while around here, looking for good media.
I have an Asus DRW 1608P, bought it after a recommendation of a good drive for reading damaged discs, and a good value burner. The review on the front of the site was good as well.
However, I have been burning dvd+r discs with many PIF.
DVD+R 16x TDK (CMC M01)
DVD+R 16x TDK (CMC AM3)
DVD+R 16x Sony (D21)
DVD+R 4x TDK (RICOH R01)
The above discs provide upwards of maximum 100 PIF, sometimes beyond 500. Their total PIF were well beyond the millions.
These discs were better,
DVD-R 16x TDK (TTH02)
These gave maximum 30-100 PIF, totals around 30 thousand
These PIF counts are very worrying. The reports of others show about 4-6 maximum on “good” media.
Is the moral of this story to buy DVD-R media? Can anyone with the same drive confirm this? What media would you reccomend? (Brick and mortar stores only)
Or is my drive a bad one? If so, can anyone recommend a nice DVD+R burner? I prefer plus discs.
