[QUOTE=Womi;1950793]It’s the same with every Ricoh fake media.
They require an excellent DL burner with a good write strategy for bad quality media, like the Pioneer DVR-112.
But even if you have such a burner, its always a gamble with these discs. Their quality varies a lot, you can get an avarage burn with the first disc of the spindle, but the second one could be a complete coaster.
I have burned about 50 RICOHJPN D00/D01 fake discs, my Pioneer DVR-112 burned [U]all[/U] of them successful, but if you get a bad batch, the second layer is almost unreadable (extremly high PIE/PIF/Jitter).
As a conclusion, I would advise you to buy genuine discs only. In my opinion discs in the middle cost range like RICOHJPN D01 (genuine ones!!) give the best value for your money.
Of course Verbatim MKMs are the best DL discs you can get, but the most expensive too.[/QUOTE]
To add to what you said, why would you want I mean anyone want to backup a movie on one of these complete trash disks just to have them not read in a couple of months if that long. Also samsung is not a reliable scanner so those scans might not even be right. The backups are going to skip in a standalone. By the time you spend your time & money on coasters & reburns why not spend the same amount & only have to burn one reliable one once. MKM00x :iagree: Seriously buying these disks we are just supplying money to companies that sell fake media & therefore telling them to keep selling it to us. Why? I own 7 dvd burners of which 4 of them could complete a full burn on matrix media & all of the burns were completely horrible & would not playback normally. :disagree:
BTW: Microcenter has MKM001 (MIS in my experience) for 27.99 right now!!! 1.39 per disk. Matrix is 1.25 per disk for 8x & 1.05 for 2.4x. you are only (not) saving .14. How many coasters are in a matrix spindle? How many will burn but will be useless?
