Just ordered 50
Have you used these before with the nec.
I tried using them with the 2510 and got errors off the scale at the end of the disc.
Playback was awful too.
However, if I burned them with my pioneer 107 they worked well.
I hope you have better luck with them than I did.
i used over 150 of these with my 2500@2510 and they are perfect. very low kprobe scans.
What firmware are you using on the 2500. As I like the price of these disc’s.
I used the standard firmware on the 2510, which is 2.15 if I remember correctly.
I tried several times to get it to write these discs as I had heard good results. The fact remains they didn’t work for me for some reason.
What speed were u burning at?
These did not burn for me either @ 8X using Herrie 107v2b4 only 4X which is fine for me.
i get all mine to burn at 8x, all from svp and very low kprobe scans with herrie latest.
My experience of these on the 2510a with stock 2.15 firmware is also very good, perfect burn @ 8x. Buy them!!!
Herrie’s beta 4 didn’t increase the burn rates for any media. You need beta 5 for that.
edit: Sorry, I was thinking of beta 6.
I burn these media @ 4x and get a smoothish CD Speed graph. 8x it gets a little wobbly.
I treat them as good 4x media.
Ive written about 5 of a 25 pack at 8x - decent results so far
Been using these for a few weeks now (after spotting an original post by DeadMan - cheers) and have burned 75+.
When I received my first batch I posted some tests using my NEC2500A - my Liteon 441S@811S hated them - and still does.
Here’s an updated KProbe - not scientific I know, but comparatively speaking these disks give 100 times better results than the Ritek -R x4 (and x8) I had been using. Compatability with standalone DVD players is equal to, if not better than, the Riteks - and the quality seems to be more consistent.
With burns like this one I know which media I’m sticking to!!
I tried @ 8x
I was using latest nero (6.3.17?) which should be ok and I also tried clone dvd2.
The drive was recognised correctly each time, just the writes were crap.
well i got 2 nec 2500@2510 the one drive has the ear jack etc and burns terrible to them the other drive has no ear jack and burns excelent to them at 8x , i just do what most peeps on here do and treat um as good 4x disks
Just goes to show one NEC 2500 is not as good as the next. Should RMA the bad one.
If I can burn at 8x then all well and good. If not then I still have some top notch, cheapish 4x media - waiting another 10 mins for a burn to finish doesn’t really bother me.
Happy days all round!
Funnily enough, the one I had , had an earjack.
Could this be a trend?
