I recently bought a 50 spindle of what were marked as TDK +R.
Using DVDinfo it says they are CMC MAGE01.
I have a Lite on 832s and this is the resulting burn.
I was a bit worried about the media but it appears to burn ok.

That’s a very nice burn :). I find myself saying again, what I said to you roughly 4 months ago “You have a good drive and good media” ;).

With CMC MAGE01 8X Discs I use Yuden000/t02 Strat and get perfect 8X burns on my 1633S@1653CS09 .

@Orazel
I think “perfect” is perhaps a little overstated ;). The PIFs are well out of spec near the end of the disc.

You are right King, Its not perfect. That was one of my first 8x burns on CMC MAGE01 that wasnt a coaster, so you can see my excitement. I do have better scans to show, seems that after a few more burns the drive is actually getting better on the new strat. I will try to upload the scans from the office tomorrow. :wink:

go back to BS41 !!! dats my experience - the learning keeps crapping the burns out … always drifts worse and some stock strategies are WRONG - way out! … BS41 is more stable for 1633s
