I've just found Verbatim media here in Egypt
It is 10 pack spindles MIT "it doesn't mention Datalife Plus" , I just bought one spindle to test it .It costs 10 U$ Dollars for spindle , 1 U$ per disc ! :sad:
First I couldn't see the serial on the discs' hub because it was under the Verbatim paper , when I opened it I found the serial to be with "+" in the middle , so it is Prodisc made MCC not CMC .
The disc's dye looks clean although not as clean as Sony MIJ that I have , I burnt two discs @ 12X , here are the results :
WOPC : ON
SB : ON/ON
OS : OFF
First disc :
Second disc :
Do you see the block of PIFs in the 2.0 mark in the second burn ?
Before the 2.0 mark the burn was excellent , I thought it would be my first 99% QS but alas.
What do you think the best f/w for 1640 with this particular Prodisc MCC 004 media ?
I also burnt an HP CMC MAG E01 disc just to find out it is very close to the Verbatim , and that is not what I read here :doh:
Here is the CMC :
The best scan ever for me was CMC MAG E01 burnt a year ago with Pioneer 109 drive , from all the media I tried : CMC , Optodisc , Daxon , Sony D11 , D21 and now Verbatim MCC , here it is :
What is wrong here ?
