Brand "Laser" DVD-R media POS

it’s been a while since i’ve been on these forums… anyway, I recently purchased a SOHW-832S burner along with 100, yep 100 Laser DVD-r POS medias… i used nero with the burning and it seems that it burns 100% with the buffer and all, but when it comes out of the tray and when i read it thru the burner, the media is there but cannot be accessed. Also the LTD-165H dvd rom cannot read the cd… fcuk its gay.

do a kprobe on the disc mate, post it up

laser almost equal princo
maybe even worse

Well, crap media as it may be - works flawlessly @ 4x and sometimes 8x in my NEC ND-2500/2510A.

Whats the MID dude?

whats a kprobe and MID?? lol its been like what?? a year that i was absent from here

See the KProbe2 thread in the media section:

MID is the media ID or media code. KP2 will give you this as well by using the Info/Disc menu option…
