Emtec + DL how good the are? Problem?

vbimport

#1

Hi members,

does anyone has exprints with Emtec double layers?

I have burn Emtec double layers with mine plextor burner.
When I tried to burn 23 double layers from Emtect those are good. I have burn too with imgburn sometimes the second layer won’t burn too, I have lost two double layers.

I get a pop-up PIO.

Two of double layers are not good. when mine burner trying to burn the second layer it won’t?

Can someone tell me why I/O Error at 50% comes pop=up and won’t burn.

Is mine burner not good? OR it’s those double layer what I am using?

Those are RICOHJPN-D01-67

Hey [B]julia1950[/B].
What does the “pop-up PIO” say? That your burner dropped into PIO data transfer mode?

Actually most users here prefer Verbatim Double Layer media, since it is still the most compatible media, although it might be a bit more expensive than Emtec or Memorex. Especially if you have an older burner, using other DL media than Verbies will be a gamble.

I have hear from Verbatim those are good. I had burn 10 of those were succes full.
but expensive tooo.

No I get this stuff on mine screen I/O Error at 50%.
I have two spindle of 50 DL of Emtect every single spindle has two or 1 coasters.

But whole thing is I burn the same movie again on the same other Emtect Medium.
It does burn good.

I was wondering if the one that not burn good, if it was a bad medium???

If it’s Write Erorrs, most likely it’s your burner not liking the media.

There are a few burners that are newer than BenQ DW1650 and may get along better with the Emtec DL media. But I would recommend just sticking to Verbatim for peace of mind and disc stability.


#5

Hello Julia :slight_smile:

Evilboy’s advice is spot-on. :iagree:

I don’t know what model your Plextor drive is, but I see you chose “MAX” burn speed - and the Plextor chose only to burn your Emtec discs at 2.4x.

It looks like your Plextor may not support those Emtec discs very well, if at all. So as suggested, you really are better off using Verbatim DL discs - for the price you pay for them, they are worth it. Sure the Emtec discs are cheaper, but as you can see, they are a gamble and some or all of them may fail to burn.

EDIT: My Samsung SH-S223F and Samsung TS-H653F drives will burn this media code pretty well at 6x. But I would still say stick with Verbatim, rather than replace the drive. :wink:


#6

I have a Plextor 800 A.

Yes, Verbatim are good and reading in mine DVD-player.
I did burn both Emtect on 8x speed written. But I think those medium are not good for mine burn. Or medium quality are not good any before it was. Before I had a spindle of 25 those are burning good.

All JVC DVD+R Gold burn full succes.


#7

OK, so not an old burner, then :slight_smile:

I think you are right, and it is possible that the spindle of 25 Emtecs that you burned well before, may have been made by a different manufacturer - or if they have the same media code, then the quality of those discs is just mediocre and variable.

At least if you use Verbatim, for DL burns at least, then you can be pretty safe that they will burn well, even though they cost a little more. :slight_smile:


#8

I’m pretty sure the Emtec DL’s are Made In China/Hong Kong fake Ricoh’s.

Would also suggest Verbatim, or Falcon Dual Layers if available in your location.

The Emtec media’s consistency may be sub-par, so I would recommend Verbies to be used instead.

Recent JVC gold-top DVD+R is made by Taiyo Yuden, a high quality Japanese manufacturer. In fact it would have surprised me more if they hadn’t burned successfully :slight_smile: Good choice.
