Burned various backups with these discs, all fail horribly in the standalone and jump/skip/pixellate very badly in the PC-DVD-ROM (Liteon-JLMS163D). Avoid like the plague. FYI I burned the exact same images on other media and they work without a problem in the standalone and the 163D.

BTW Any idea why it just has a media code of ‘MEDIA ID001’ which shows up as blank on a few dvdr nfo programs?

These are also branded as 4x compatible, but according to the information obtained above they are only 2x is that correct? I did only write at 2x.

I just purchased a 50 pack of DVD +R and it turns out they are the same exact thing. I’m using an NEC ND-1100A which is updated with the HP 310 firmware and it only burns this particular media at 2.4X. Can anyone tell me how to burn this media at 4X? Here is the info on the media:

1: these discs have a speed id of 2.4X and thus many writers only writes them at 2.4X - But they do have write parameters for 4X = some writers is able to write them at 4X.

2: These discs fails badly in my pioneer and LG writers. They do work ok in my plextor PX-708A and in my Lite-On at 2.4X.

3: Yes they are low quality.
