To compare it I use my 209 E, looks also bad. Is it real a media-problem? I burned 7 discs from this cakebox, the 1st scans looked better

Verbatim labled 6x BD-R (next BD out of yet another new labled 50pack #43838)
CMCMAGBA5
Pioneer BDR-208D (1.50)
burned at 6x (P-CAV)

I’ve to say, this 50 pack sucks, I had two failures with these discs*, two really bad discs, and then again good results like this. Why can’t CMC get rid of their extreme quality range? :astonished:

  • Just had three more failures, all with my 212M, seems there is something with the drive, not the discs, gonna have to check what it is, hope it’s not a defective device.

Pretty good result for CMC on the 209 @ 6x.

Yeah, even better than the Verbatims with same MID. I think the 209 can write this 10-12x (or 16x too? I’ve seen same crazy speeds somewhere with it), maybe I’ll try that too :thinking::upside_down_face:

CMCMAGBA5 is 12x speed max with the Pioneer, VERBATIMe is 16x (and SONY NN3 & RITEKBR4 which are basically unavailable).

good to know, thanks :wink: I think I have some SONY NN3 left, so I’ll try with those :slightly_smiling_face:
