Hi, I’ve had a really bad run with printable Bulkpaq 8x DVD-R’s and printable Datasafe 4x DVD-Rs with my Lite On SOHW-812S US0Q drive. Tested a dozen so far, 100% failure rate. My drive works fine with other better quality media.
I used Nero’s info tool to get more info about the disc, but everything is blank. The only thing I get is that the disc’s space is 4.38GB.
I am curious to find out what dye is used and who the manufacturer is.
OMG, sorry guys I noticed a DVD identifying subforum only now :o
Anyway, I tested the DVDs and it seems the maker is the dreaded CMC Magnetics with the AE1 dye.
However, Nero’s error log (not the info tool) reports it to be a Prodisc disc. Is this what is causing my errors?
