Hi. Ok, so I’m a newbie when it comes to this stuff and I’m hoping you guys can help me with some question I had about DVDs and DVD burning!
My first question is regarding DVD media, specifically verbatim DVD+R single layer. I have done some searching and there is so much information, sometimes confusing and I just want to make sure that I understood this correctly.
As I understand it, the MCC-004 isn’t always a “real” MCC, correct? It could actually be a CMC, Prodisc, or MBI, depending on where it was made, correct? So basically MCC could be:
1.) MCC (Made in Singapore)
2.) CMC (Made in Taiwan?)
3.) Prodisc (Made in ???)
4.) MBI (Made in India?)
Which is the best after the Singapore ones? I have some verbatims that I bought a while ago that are identified as MCC-004 in ImgBurn. Is there anyway to know which of the 4 it is by looking at the disc or spindle? (I threw away the outer cover without seeing where it was made in as at the time, I knew nothing about the different manufacturing plants)
My second question is regarding DVD drives and which one would be best for burning video DVDs. I have 4 burners on 1 desktop computer and 3 laptops that I can use:
- Info: SONY DVD RW DRU-V204A 1.60 (D:) (ATA) [Custom AMD Desktop]
- Info: Slimtype DVD A DS8A5SH XAA2 (E:) (ATAPI) [Crappy Asus Laptop]
- Info: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8D1 L.01 (D:) (SATA) [Brand New Samsung Laptop]
- Info: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-U633A AC01 (D:) (ATAPI) [Acer Laptop w/ Busted Screen]
Of those four, which one would be best to do the burning?
Thank you for your time!
