Millenniata M-DISC BD-R

#1

I recently got three of these (they’re quite expensive) for testing purposes. I’m saving one and only tested with two of my drives. Max burn speed is 4x.

These discs are manufactured by RITEK but have a unique MID, not a variation of RITEKBRx. The results…are interesting.

I only did a TRT with this drive and a Pioneer BDR-208M. While it is read at 12x by the LG, the Pioneer, which in general is as faster or faster than the LG, apparently had some issues with it:

I actually wondered if I got the disc dirty or something. So I did it again a few minutes later, after cleaning it. Same result. Odd.
I will try doing TRTs in my ASUS-rebadged iHBS112 and older LG BD-ROM some time soon.

This is basically equivalent to this drive’s performance at this speed with the highly regarded MEIT02 (SL version). Jitter might be slightly worse, but that’s it.

Interestingly enough, the BDR-208M didn’t have any problem at all reading an M-DISC BD-R it burned itself.

In fact, it is read by all my drives, including the iHBS112 and the GGC-H20L, at maximum speeds. Queer.

[B]Disc Quality Scan[/B]

My first scan detected a bad BIS spike right at the beginning of the disc, but this seemed to be an anomaly. I think I hit the drive or was doing something or other at the time (maybe opened another instance of Opti Drive Control). The second scan yielded a pretty good result except for a BIS spike:

This is very close to this drive’s performance at this speed with the highly regarded MEIT02 (SL version).

So quality by traditional measures (so far) is alright. The question is - do these discs suffer from the Ritek curse? In other words, is the outermost part of the disc reliable, or not? From the TRTs and DQs so far the answer is yes. But I made these scans right after burning. I’ll do them again soon, and see if there’s any deterioration. If not - the next step is stress testing these - scratching, leaving it outside, subjecting it to extreme heat &c. Actually, I’m not sure how to do the last one safely - if anybody’s got any ideas for stress testing, I’m all ears.
