I currently have two spindles of dual layer, one 25 pack of MKM 001 (DVD+R), and a 25 pack of Ritek P01 (4x DVD-R).
I’m looking for an excuse to retire my Optiarc 7170a burner (I have a brand-new Samsung 18X Lightscribe burner in the closet, and I need room to install it), but so far it has proved best for burning any type of DL media, even the poorly-considered Ritek.
I tried the -R DL media in the Liteon and it turned 2$ into a coaster real quick, and the Benq produces mediocre results at best, and takes much longer even though it burns at 4x. Haven’t tried the LG because I’m worried I’ll waste an expensive disc, considering the NEC burns them quite well.
Has anyone tried the above DL media? Which drives burn DL media the best, including the Ritek -R?
