Well guys and gals I think I’m up for a new DVD Burner, I have mainly burnt DVD-R media with fairly good results until recently that is. Lately I will have to burn 2 to 3 DVD-R discs to get 1 that plays back without any problems, I had put this down to a bad batch of media. I tried a couple of other brands of -R media with varying results.
Well today I bit the bullet and went and purchased a few of supposedly top quality +R discs, 2 fujifilm and 2 verbatim just to see if these would burn/play better. The fujifilm discs are RICOHJPNR01 and the verbatim discs are MCC002, both brands costing an arm and a leg to purchase here in Australia.
Even though the results are better than what I have been getting lately with -R discs only the fujifilm will play in my stand alone player (Pioneer DVD525) and I don’t consider either of the results that I have posted as good.(these are the better of the 2 results)
Now for my question anybody want to buy a slightly used LDW411S, just joking. No the real question is to buy a 812S now or wait for 832S to come down in price, they are about $70AUS difference in price, does the 812/832 burn -R media as good as +R media. I am asking this because my pioneer DVD525 seems to prefer -R over +R I can have some really crappy -R scans and it will play them fine but +R scans that are 1/3 as bad will not always play.
Any suggestions, comments greatly appreciated.
I haven’t even considered the 1213S because of what I have read it is a crappy drive?
