The YUDEN000 T03 is better with this media at 16x!

You have to burn with cdspeed create data disk. In cdspeed/File/Options/Standard Tests/Transfer Rate/Write Options check ‘Include test data’ and optionaly ‘Burn image file’ if you want to burn a nero or iso image.


#26

Thanks ala42 for the answer. I not always have a .iso file to burn and only had the ‘Burn image file’ selected.

I have my doubt about 16x burning in CDSpeed. That’s why I burn most DVD’s (including .iso files) with CopyToDVD 3.0.55.

CD Speed has a bug at least on the 3540 where ticking the option to create a data disc causes 16x burns to not reach 16x (Speed drop part way through burn). Dee has mentioned this to Erik who develops CD Speed as a possible bug. When I do not tick the option to create a data disc it reaches 16x (With a drop off in speed towards the end but that might be media variances. I am going to try MCC04 write strat on my Fuji Yuden T02’s as someone tested above and see if I get as good a reading. It’s a shame he did not include a CD Burn speed graph though to see if it was a stable 16x burn or not. I suggest people try to do that where they can as it tells us so much more about a burn!).


#28

Fujifilm 8x DVD+R from aprmedia @ 16x
Old MID YUDEN T02
New MID MCC004
Batch # 1159
Burner 3540 1.01 Liggy & Dee W3
These are mediocre for TY media but do indeed burn better using the MCC004 write strat than T02 strat. PIF max jumped by 1 from 2 to 3 but PIF total and average is about the same.


Transfer test is smooth to 16x

Just to compare to default write strat for this media.


#29

Here is an interesting test of Datasafe 8x DVD+R
Old MID MCC003
New MID MCC004
Ignoring the odd PIE peaks this is a nice scan for this brand of MCC003’s. My average PIE is usually a lot higher and PIF too is substantially lower than with the default strat. Now if Dee could figure out a way to tweak those PIE peaks out perhaps it would become an excellent strategy.

I’d like to see a Verbatim MCC003 using MCC004 write strat for comparison.


Transfer test was smooth to 16x (No point using bandwidth on images of that)

I am very happy with this burn :slight_smile:


#30

I’d like to see what Datawrite CMC MAG AE1 (The good batches) look like using MCC004 @ 16x now. But I can’t be bothered right now. If someone wants to give it a shot in the meantime though I’d be very interested. MCC004 strats look like a good generalised 16x burn strategy thus far.


#31

See post number 6 (but not Datawrite). Maybe I can do RICOHJPNR02 with MCC004 write strat.


#32

I don’t think MCSE allows you to use +R strategies (MCC004) on DVD-R media like CMC MAG AE1. At least I can’t figure out how to do it :slight_smile: Quikee’s patcher actually allowed this and I know Quikee sent his sourcecode to ala42 som maybe this will be possible in the future.

Did you see my result with Datawrite CMC MAG AE1@12X using MCC02RG20?


#33

Yes I did and tried it on Datawrite dark grey AE’s but it did not get to 12x and burned the last quarter or so of the disc at 8x
