Looks perfectly readable at least. :slight_smile:
Not sure what the longevity and lastability of cheapie media like this will be though…
Since the 2500A is a more stringent reader, I wonder how the transfer rate test would look on itself?


#3

i find that my liteon gives better reading curves than my liteon dvdrom (its an older 163D), because the liteon ends up spinning far too fast (like 14x at 3gig) and causes problems for itself!

a question: what brand is this infosmart media? is it the datasafe red?

Wesociety, what test should I run on Nero CD DVD Speed or DVDInfoPro so we could see “the transfer rate test” “on itself”?

Aeronic, these DVD+Rs are “branded” as “Infosmart”. There is nothing written on the DVD+R itself, it simply has a white top on which one can write.

I prefer Nero for transfer rate tests. :slight_smile:
