Mitsubishi Chemicals DVD+R DL

alexnoe, any idea what caused the problems with this last DVD+R DL burned in the Plextor 716A??
I’m just asking because I had the same dark circles with a Maxell DVD-R a while ago, but it never happened again since then.

BenQ DW1640 BSMB , 6968 MB burned to disc

I just burned one of these on my BenQ.

Speed: 4X
Firmware: BSMB
QSuite Settings: All at Default


This is the best Verbatim D/L burn to date for me. Burned using 1693S at 4x, KS0B stock firmware. Burned Video TS folder using copy2DVD 3.1.1.135.
Normally I create an ISO file of Video TS folders using DVD shrink and then burn with DVD Decrypter. I also have not had much luck burning D/L media with my DW1640 or DW1620. I have used numerous configs with my Benq’s but the pif and pie after the layer break was awful. Benq D/L burns have resulted in a few 0 QS burns. I think I will use the 1693S for all my D/L burns now.

Burned and scanned at 4x with SOHW 1693S.
Stock firmware - KS0B
Burned Video TS folder with copy2dvd 3.1.1.135

:clap:

Here are 3 burns of Verbatim MKM001 DVD+R DL from the 10-packs. They are DVD backups burned with a Plextor 716A with the 1.09 firmware. One is at 2.4x, another at 4x and another at 6x. The 2.4x burn resulted in much lower PIEs and PIFs. My conclusion is that to minimize errors with the Plextor 716A it is better to burn this media at 2.4x than at 6x.

Since I am new to DL burning, can anyone tell me how good these burns are? The 6x burn has 1 PIF in excess of 4, and the 4x burn has 7 PIFs in excess of 4. I got no read errors but I thought PIF was not supposed to exceed 4 on the SUM1. Should I presume it doesn’t matter if it is just a few isolated spikes that exceed 4? In any case, all my burns were much better than a pressed movie DVD-ROM I scanned for reference (not shown here).

Oddly enough, the 4x burn has the best Jitter. Does this mean anything?

The 6x burn appears first. The 2.4x burn appears second and the 4x burn appears last.




BenQ DW1620 B7W9 , 8046 MB
One of my 1st DL burns. Burned with my BenQ DW1620 at 2.4x and booktyped to dvd-rom. No playback problems on my stand-alone player. I was concerned about the jump in PIE, PIF after the layor break but I guess this is typical.



Verbatim DVD+R 2.4x @6x by Plextor PX-716A #0203 1.09 , 7136 MB
No read problems.


Plextor PX-716A 1.09 , 6817 MB
Another burn. This time with ImageBurn. No read problems.


Plextor PX-716A 1.09 , 7451 MB
This time i decided to burn @4x. Look at results for your self. Strangely enough the disk was read perfectly (no slowdowns at full speed) with Plextor 716A and 708A.


Plextor PX-716A 1.09 , 7407 MB
And again @4x. Seems like it’s not a coinsidence… :eek: The disk was read without any problems.


Burned and scanned on BenQ DW1640 with BSMB WOPC turned off. 7995 MB


Plextor PX-716A 1.09 , 7249 MB
A good burn by Plextor @6x.

Sold as Verbatim DL 8x

Same setup as above, only with MKM001 2.4x +R DL

The 2.4x looks better than the 8x at 8x, that’s odd. The 001 looks pretty good.

Yes, and the 8x fails a TRT at 12x, (CRC), passes fine at 8x.

Even though Nero indicates a max speed of 6x on this media, CDSpeed burned it at 4x.


Same as above, LiteOn drive burned at 8x
( I messed up with the available burn speeds, 1635 will burn this at 4x, 6x and 8x. I’m not sure why the CDSpeed DD test only went at 4x)
