Interrestings tests

i have bought some cheaper dvd (max disc) + and -
all the dvd- made on my btc were unreadeable on dvd players
some of dvd+ were ok

but i ve gone to a friend and i burn the dvd- on a pioneer dvr106 and some others on a msi dr4a and all of these dvd play fine on all of my dvd player (home and pc) !!!
my friend say "look the good one s seems more dark on recorded face than the dvd recorded on btc !!!

dear marco does btc dvd writer write enought ???

ps my dvd-r works well on philips stand alone player (made for dvd+ only !!!)

To make it easier for Marco to help you I recommend

  1. to post the firmware version of your BTC DRW1004IM

  2. to post the MIB Code of the “Max Disc” DVDs :wink:

Here’s something interesting to read:

btc1959,

What worked for you ? What didn’t ? Please give me all the juicy details: the MID codes of your media, the brand and model no. of your (home) DVD player, the software name/version you used to copy it, the choice of pizza you ate while copying the movie, the movie that you copied, your bank account no., everything. I want it all ! ; )

N.B. you can keep the bank account no. for yourself :bigsmile:

it s quite simple :
i have bought 10 max disc dvd-
and 10 max sisc dvd+ (ricoh)

i have burn 8 dvd+ on my btc with different issue of firmware , most of them can be played on my philips dvd 622 player but they offen freeze… and the combi vhs dvd player (LG 500) none were played … (sorry for the english i m french)

i have burn in the same way the 4 dvd- but the burning was ok and when i try to read then dvd in my pc dvd player (pioneer 103 ou 106s) disc was bad and dont begin . and on every home player (LG philips blue sky panasonic) this is the same …

so i go to a friend who had bought a pioneer dvr106d i have burned my 2 dvd+ and 4 dvd- on his dvd writer with the same nero… and the all the dvd especially the dvd- play every where even on my philips dvd622 which is made only for dvd+ ???

here is the mid of dvd- good

Looks like not one of the best types of media.

Furthermore, it’s not on the DRW1004 media support list.

ok they are not in the list but when i burn them on to the pioneer a106 there are playable on every dvd player …
is there possibility to increase the strenght of the laser in the bct ?

for the pioneer there is no table of compatibility and its work !!
