I just picked up a spindle of these Kodak 48x discs on sale at Future Shop in Canada, labelled as “Product of Taiwan”. Using Liteon’s smartburn utility, the media identified as being Gigastore OEM. I previously bought some of their 4x DVD+R media and the OEM was Plasmon.

Unfortunately the top disc was scratched by their packing machine or something, but I was able to burn successfully to it with an LG 4120B running firmware A104. The amount of C1 errors was very low other than the scratched portion, and despite the relatively nasty scratch (on the top of the media!) the Kprobe C1 average was still 1.32 with no C2 errors. Looking good, I will post a followup once I burn a non-damaged disc for an accurate Kprobe reading. The Kprobe testing was done on a SOHC-5232K f/w NK0A.

I have now completed a burn to an unscratched disc, at 40x on an LG 4120B firmware A104. Very impressive burn quality, as good as Taiyo Yudens burned in the same drive.

Did you notice that they come in TY style cake box too. I got a spindle last night and was wondering if they are any good. Your KProbe result definitely help.

These media have a “blank” silver coating, which is very senstive.


Optical media of all kinds, now an obsolete technology
