"CMC MAG" 2X DVD-R media? Anyone used this with an 832S?

I recenly purchased a 15 pack spindle of VERBATIM 2X DVD-R DVDs. They show up in DVD Identifier as:[B]

Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:CMC MAG.]

Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [CMC MAG.]
Manufacturer Name : [CMC Magnetics Corp.]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , (2x)]
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]

That is all it shows as the Disc Identifier. Has anyone ever used these? I’m wondering if any of you have tried these at 4X? I’m trying to figure out which “CMC MAG.” to use in Omnipatcher to enable 4X?

Maybe the AF1 or prehaps just increasing the speed on the MAG. to 4x.

It would be nice to find someone that had already tried it, if you only have 15.

Yeah… don’t have many to spare. But these things take forever at 2X :a

EDIT: Plus everybody I talk to says “that’s all it gives for the Disc ID???” I’m guessing not too many have had the unfortunate luck of stumbling upon these like I did.:bigsmile:

It is in the VS0B media code list as “CMC MAG.”. In the -R section. :wink:


I have had no luck at all with cmc magnetics. Here’s a guide that shows where they rate them http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm.
