I’ve bought today 2 spindles (25 units each) of Verbatim DVD+R 8X and i’ve tested one of them to see if they were good… and they are :iagree:

Considering i was watching a movie (divx), and emule and the transfer test were running at the same time, the graph isn’t so bad :cool:

The disc is the same as above.

Sold as silver Verbatim 16X certified manufactured by Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. I post 2 discs from the same box, the results are quite different though, quite confusing and worrying… Results from Nero and K-Probe differ as well, what could be the reason?

I had about 5-10 disks at the end of a spindle of 100 that were marginal to bad.
verb 16x dvd+r. Some mid 90’s to 98 is usual.

burned at 8x with nec 3550 and LG 4163B

I am sticking with MIJ media, almost bought MBI yesterday

Same disc as above

All MCC004 media I burned so far using different drives (Pioneer, LG, Benq) show a similar PI peak between 0.5 and 1.0. Any ideas why?

Guidelines for posting media tests:

1) There will be threads for each media manufacturer, TY, RiTEK, CMC, etc they will also be split up in format and type (one for DVD+R, one for DVD+RW one for DVD-R one for DVD-RW for each manufacturer). Before posting, you must have your media’s ADIP information, and post in the appropriate thread for that media maker. If there is no thread for that maker, create one! Posting by the media brand, (Fuji, Memorex, etc.), will not be permitted in the media test forums, but may be discussed in the main media forum. Post only one test per post please! Testing should preferrably be done in the same drive your media was burned in.
2) The subject of your post must include the media maker and the media maker’s speed rating and the speed it was burned at.
3) The first line in the post must include the drive model used for burning, and firmware version. Also the size of the burn in Mb or Gb.
Next you should post the ADIP
5) Now you should include which brand the discs is sold under and which manufacturer the discs comes from (for searching purposes), follow this with any relevant information like whether the discs is unreadable in some players etc
6) Finally post an image of the error scan if possible. In order to keep the size of the image to a minumum, we strongly sufggest saving it in “.png” or “.gif” format. You must have have a web host that allows linking for image posting to function, attaching the image file to your post will also work. If you are not able to post and link an image, you can contact me or rdgrimes about keeping your image on our server. Posts that have broken image links will be deleted.

:cop: All posts that do not conform to the above stated format may be deleted :cop:
