Interaxia AG DVD+R (VDSPMSAB)

Huh, I have to look if I still have em.

Unlabeled DVDs, sold as 3A:

-R: VDSPMSAB 01

HUB: L1 -R 3 2504 20:36 50153 41-50/09/21

Stamper: not readable, it´s on the outer ring

+R: POMC001 002

HUB: L3 +R 3 1304 06:45 21224 03260102 113R - 3

Stamper: (03260102) DVD+R 4.7GB 4X Theres also very small letters below this code, but atm I can´t read it

Both were made by 3A Media. Is the first one fully readable?

Yes, but it have scratches and dirt on the burned surface. I think it could be in better condition if I handled it with care :wink:

Still wonder why 4x CLV causes such results. In theory the writer only change rpm, speed and laser-power sould be same from begin to end

Looks a bit better with the 215

Maybe different thickens of the dye on different parts of the disc. The laser strength set for the beginning of the disc is too high for the part around 2.5GB, OPC correction for the part after 2.5, laser strength now is too low, again OPC… anyway just my theory :slight_smile:

Pioneers OPC often kick in, that´s true. On some media it worked not that bad, sometimes you can see when the PI raises the Pioneer slow down the speed, maybe the laser power also changes

But with that media many writers have problems on some parts of the disc

Monarch DVD+R 4x / VDSPMSAB 001
supplied by Tester_1

Burned with LG GH22LP20 @4x




Only 4x possible?

Totally different to my result with Pioneer 215, Benq likes this burn more and Liteon less, vice versa with your burn

4x and 8x
So it knows the media I think

Yeah these are crazy discs

Tried the 2nd disc with LG GSA-4163B (4x) and it is not readable after burning.

Looks like massive upshift/downshift while burning

Only 4x available?

and 2,4x

So it should have write-strategies for this MID

But if other media use this MID also and have different materials something like this could be happen. I´m not sure whether this LG have OPC
