I have a JVC DR-M10 standalone recorder which only writes @1X (no HD).
Until now I’ve been using TYG01 and RitekG04 with very good results. I can’t find any TYG01 anymore (online) where I live, so I was wondering if anyone had experience with TYG02 burnt at very low speeds…?
In theory, the laser used on these machines allows better burns at lower speeds than if burnt at low speeds on a PC drive, but then again.??
It really depends on the burner. It has to have proper firmware support for the media.
You can see my tests with a Panasonic recorder HERE In general, it’s better to burn DVD+R at low speed than it is DVD-R, YMMV.
Thanks rdgrimes, I’ve checked the thread you link to and it’s quite interesting.
From the more than correct results that you’ve got even with TYG03 on your Panasonic, I think I can give TYG02 a go on my JVC, no big deal.
Just that I don’t have anymore TYG02 left here, I’m using mostly MCC03RG20 Verbs for my PC now, the standalone drive doesn’t do a very nice job with these Verbs, so I have to order some discs for this puppy, just have to decide which ones…
The M10 doesn’t record to +R…
If the TYG02 don’t give good results on the JVC recorder, at least I know they’ll be great on my PC drives
Almost entirely off topic, but I have tested Verbatim 16 DVD-R (MCC 03RG20) at 1x in my Sony RDR-HX910 HDD/DVD Recorder, and the result is excellent. The same is true for Verbatim 16x DVD+R (MCC004) at 1x in the same recorder. It must be said however, that this is the latest generation recorder, so the firmware probably has specific writing strategies for these media.
I guess so. I’ve already tried some 16X - R Verbs in my JVC recorder but the results are so-so. In specs, but not really satisfying in my book. No F/W upgrade seems available for this recorder.
Just tried with MCC02RG20 Verbs, good results. Lots of PIFs (total count) but levels are totally OK. I’ll probably go for these.
If only I could find a shop selling those Plextor TYG02 so I could buy a single one and try it on this recorder… :a - I didn’t save one from my last batch, silly me!
About being off-topic, this is entirely my fault. :o - but as I wanted feedback specifically about TYG02 at low speeds, I didn’t feel like posting my question in the “standalone recorder” section… sorry mods , move it if it must be moved…
