My first TY purchase/burn! WOOHOOO

vbimport

#1

Well I bought a pack of fuji 8x MIJ from best buy, (they finally had some in stock) and here is the first one from the pack.
IM hooked!!!


#2

Very nice burn! Hard to beat TY, isn’t it.


#3

So it seems.


#4

What speed? I am guessing either 8x or 12x. Nice scan!


#5

12x. Although each of my drives supports these beauties up to 16x.


#6

how does the dye look after the burn? are there areas darker or lighter than the other?


#7

well the area that has been written to is obviously darker now, but its all the same colour no patches of different hues.


#8

@easy123

i would not really bother about the areas with darker or lighter…no prove to show it will fail in reading…


#9

It isnt going to fail in reading, look at the scan.


#10

I have noticed a slight dye change at 12x modded U9/non modded U9 on my TY02 using TY02 or TY03 write strategy(interestingly on P9/T9 fw this was less common) I was worried about this but I ealized it is not a defect in the dye but the way the dye looks after being burned…most discs it is barely visible and I have to work to look for it in the “right” lightning

Do not give it a second thought

BTW I do not see it at 16x burn speed


#11

Maybe Im missing something here, but the dye on ALL my discs is a different colour (darker) then the unused portion of the discs’ underside.
Is this what we’re talking about.


#12

yes the “burned” dye will look different but I my impression in the burned dye he noted so differences in the “color or appearance”…


#13

:confused: Uh…I dont understand a word of what you wrote. :confused:


#14

feels good to get 99% heh? and, PIEs are well below 20 all the way. congrats. :slight_smile:


#15

nice job.

I don’t get it though, I’ve burned over 150 discs with my 1620’s almost all fuji ty02’s and i’ve never gotten better than a 97% :frowning: . It could be my setup though, not sure if it’s something with the nForce3 250 chipset. Congrats again


#16

xtw1ster, I wouldn’t think anything of it. Almost guaranteed to be the batches of media (TY) that you are getting, and nothing more.


#17

I totally agree. I burned around a hundred YUDEN000-T02 Fuji branded discs with quality score between 95 and 97, smooth distribution of low PIEs. These were spindles of 25 discs. Two weeks ago I bought a couple of spindles of 10 discs and now I get 98 and 99 only, but around 3,5 GB there is a small PIE hill of 20s. Same burner and same FW so definitely different batch of media.


#18

Well heres the 4th disc I burned from that same spindle, even slighty BETTER than the first scan I posted, not by much (lol).Damn the 1620 and these TY are a match made in heaven, I didnt get a better burn in the other drives I had with this media, but they were still good.
BTW, to the people worried about getting a 97% or so with these discs, I got a 98 and 97 with the others I burned,(of course they werent burned in the 1620!) so its normal.
Frankly everyone who isnt satisfied with a 90%-95% scan result should just be happy, they are perfectly fine. Heck youll find even a 70% will play fine with no skips and still last as long.



#19

I have had 3 spindles of TY02 50 pck…2 sony and one fuji branded…batch 01149, 01133 x2…there is some variance for sure…I usually can only get 97 if I burn at 12x(no 99’s for me on TY02)

I also have Nforce 3 chipset…I am using ms ide drivers not nvidia drivers…I found a couple months go with testing I got slightly better burns with ms ide drivers on P9 fw

I think the nforce chipset maybe :confused: a part of the issue…and part media batch variation

I tried burns overclocked and no overclock…I got better burns by small amount overclocked


#20

Overclocking wont help anything. Youre CPU is fast enough. It just depends on the spindle you get.
