Is there anyone who has successfully burned and read the full 50 GB BD-R DL by Media Range?
I bought a pack of 10 discs back in summer of 2016 and the burning process is always good but every single disc fails to read apparently in the layers breaks (at 50% the otherwise fluent read process gets frozen). Ironically I also use their single layer 25 GB BR-Rs and these are absolutely fine. It seems like a layers break issue.
The only way to have a fully readable compilation it to turn on Nero’s blu-ray defects management under drive options but it makes very little sence since you lose space and we are talking about brand new media.
I have two different blu ray burners: ASUS BW-16D1HT firmware 3.0 and Pioneer BDR-209EBK firmware 1.31. I have tried both burning and reading in these two drives, burning speed 2x, the result are absolutely the same. Burning process fine, reading process halts at 50%.
I have tried Nero Burning Rom 2017 and Burn Aware Free - no difference.
I also have Verbatim 100 GB BD-R XL and these discs burn and read absolutely fine. And these are triple layers if you think about it!
So my conclusion is: There is something wrong with multilayer blu-ray discs by Media Range. They either fail to manufacture them properly or use incompatible materials. And I am pretty much determined to use only Verbatim MABL multilayers in the future since their BDXLs prove to be fully functional as one would expect from a sealed product.
