I’m not sure about the media code. I guess they’re CMC MAG M01, which isn’t that good…
This belongs into the Bargain Basement Forum.

Ok, thought i posted in the wrong forum too. Mod, please move it to bargin basement.

:flower:

I went to futureshop and they did a price match and i got those for only $15.49, but they are really bad quality. The +Rs are cmc mag m01 and the -Rs are cmc mag am3, very horrible media, especially the -Rs so i took them back and exchanged them for regular memorex dvd+r media which turned out to be Ricohjpnr03 which isn’t bad at all.

I really wish there was a way to tell the difference. I tried to get more RICOHJPN R03 and it ended being CMC MAG M01.:frowning:

Done! :slight_smile:

I think all the non printeable memorex are +Rs 16x are Ricohjpnr03. Just get em to pricebeat the printeable ones, buy em at $15.49, get the -Rs and then go back and tell em that your burner isn’t compatible with -R and you wanta change em for the +R and this time don’t get the printeable +Rs but the regular ones, they will most likely be Ricohjpnr03.

Thanks, but unfortunatly all my Memorex is non printable, I lucked out and got 1 25 pack of RICOHJPN R03 and the other identical cake boxes were CMC MAG M01.:wink:

Do you have a scan of the burn just to show the bad quality?

Thanks…

PHILIPS 8x DVD+R8.5GB DUAL LAYER 25CAKE BOX $29.99CDN / $1.20CDN

Worth buying?

Yes, if you have a Lite-On 1635S or 16*P6s drive.

Not really when you consider the following:

20 pack of Verbatim D/L DVD+R for $30CDN+tax (I believe they are at the futureshop starting on the 8th). Yeah, it’s a bit more expensive but when you take a look at the scans in general that people are getting with these CMC Mag D/L discs IMHO it isn’t worth the relatively small price difference.

These both were burned with pio111d@111L firmware 8.26. The cmcmagam3 was burned at 16x and the cmcmagm01 burned at 12x, which are the maximum allowed.



I don’t know about other people, I am getting excellent burns with Philips-branded 8x DVD+R DL from Future Shop.

Here’s another disc burned by Lite-On SHM-165P6S at 6x.
