Mitsubishi Chemicals DVD-R

I think the 124 W with Renesas-chipset is better than the 124 F with MTK.

And I burned in the last 2 years mostly newer MCC-media which seems to be much more worse than this media from 2011

With MCC 03RG20 I never get so good results like with MCC 004, but overall the LiteOns never had a bigger problem with MCC -R, but the MCC +R problem, we discussed it a lot , exist some years

The Optiarc and TSST drives did not offer a 2x, so I thought I’d try this media on my slim GU90N. Not ideal, but didn’t feel like dragging out the old NEC drives and hooking them up. The GU90N did an atrocious job, so I thought I’d pull out my ND3500A.

The ND3500A self-destructed during the burn. It now has a short to ground and the computer won’t boot with it attached. I did manage however to exceed your result in the end with a write swap on the Optiarc AD-7200S.

My codes are similar to yours:

Verbatim Digital Movie DVD-R 4x / MCC 01RG20 (film reel decorative style on front of disc 43277)
Hub Code: 4092 507 -R B D 03396
Stamper Code: ZC5697-DVR-H47A

This is an “Advanced AZO” disc. “Made in India” (and you can guess which write strategy I used based on the country of origin).

Burned at 2x and read at 8x. Read on BenQ DW1620.

MCC_01RG20_3

Very good discs. These go in the VIP pile.

IMO this is not good

Hi, I use Nero

any specific version?

Nero Multimedia Suite 10
10.2.10500

But mostly the quality is based on the media and writer.

That is very good result for present day Verbatim media. Do you know when and where your MCC03RG20 were made?

hey sorry i took so long i had to try to figure it out, but it is 2010 by Moser Baer India.

also i hope your joking, because PIE 32 for a fresh burn be considered anywhere remotely good?

Unfortunately that is the reality with media produced by MBI. Other manufactures my give better results but nowhere near the quality of the media from the early to mid 2000s.

What is more important than the pure numbers is how long the media will stay stable. You may have media with perfect score result after burning but after one or two years it will be hardly readable (with horrible scan results). If you have PIE of 32 and PIF of 890 after burning and have increased error rates of 1-2% after one year of storage I will consider those as very good discs. Also it is very important to analyze the graph itself - having flat error curve is better than having peaks of errors only at specific place(s).

Ah i get what you are saying.

I know you are hypothetically saying a perfect score can turn unreadable after 1-2 years but i hope there are not any examples.
(also i know its a bit off topic but do u have any more ageing scans of the ritek Fujifilm oxonal dye discs)

I think you should probably blame media first and then firmware for the results. Not bad for MCC 03RG20 made in India.

Yep.

Mostly a short lifepspan ist mostly to blam on the media itself or a real bad storage (Sunbeam).

But long years ago the german PC-magazine c´t made some longevity-tests and find out it can also depend on the writer. IIRC the media which was burned with a NEC (2500 or 3500, I guess) had a better longevity than burned with a LiteOn of this era.

what would be “good” for MCC 03RG20 made in India? or elsewhere

This is not a full burn and higher errors could show up at the end of the disc, but what I see I think it is more or less the best you can expect to achieve. Why is jitter not working?
