Since this is my first post I’m figured it’s best for me to post it inthe Newbie section right away
I’m trying to find out which DVD+R DL media I should buy but I’m starting to get a bit confused by all the sections and “must read” threads as a first time user.
It’s good to see a db being created of tested media but the first problem I found was how to actually read the test results. Did I overlook something or isn’t there a “must read” thread about this? Sending and collecting test results is one thing but doing somthing with the result is something else
Also from the “How to Search the test forum” thread (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=75572) I got pointed to the Media FAQ page (http://forum.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=61943) expecting to find a list of which brand name uses which media maker but this is not the case. The line states “See the Media FAQ to find out how to know who made your media.” but no list can be found there. Is there a list like this?
I’m in doubt about buying Verbatim 8,5 Gig DVD+R DL disc or Infiniti 8,5 Gig DVD+R DL. The last on is much cheaper (â‚¬37.95 ~ $49.32 for 5 discs vs. â‚¬46,50 ~ $60.43 for 10 discs) but from what I’ve “heard” Verbatim has a better reputation if it comes to quality.
How should I start my comparison now?
Form the fist thread I mentioned I know Mitsubishi is the media maker for Verbatim, but what about the media maker for Infiniti?
I found some DL media test results of Mitsubishi but how should I “read” the graphs? When does a graph “tell” you the media is any good? How can I see this?
When I finally have my media I’ll be happy to contrubute test results, though I’m afraid I have to do this with CDSpeed instead of KProbe since I’ve got a Plextor DVDR PX-716A. Nothing wrong with that, though KProbe seems to be the preferred program by the users of this forum
P.s. If you recommend me to buy a completely different media in the end, if it comes to quality and price you can also let me know Just keep in mind that it has to be send to the Netherlands though…
