I am desperate. Over the last two years I spent a lot of time creating and
burning around 120 DVDs. Some of them contain own film footage, needless to
say, it would be nearly a catastrophe to me, if someday they would not be
readable anymore. In present situation, due to the “label-problem” and poor
quality of burned discs (HP200), I have to copy and burn all discs again.
After much investigation, I decided to buy a NEC 3500ag and a DVD-ROM, Toshiba SD-M1912
a month ago. Now, beeing on holidays I started the big challenge! I somehow
managed to rip the most problematic discs. 47 in number.
I have to burn these, and make some room on my hdds for the other discs…
BUT: I am not at all pleased with burning results produced by NEC 3500ag.
Reading many posts on this board and having a look at other peoples’ scan
results, the question comes up: why are my personal results so poor?
NEC 3500 or Toshiba defective? None of it?
To be a little bit more specific, I show you some scan results:
(speed could not be restricted to 4x)
NEC 3500ag @4x, MAD DOG MD-16XDVD9 2.F8, Intenso MBIPG101: Att.No.1-3
NEC 3500ag @4x, MAD DOG MD-16XDVD9 2.F8, Verbatim MCC03: Att.No.4
NEC 3500ag @8x, MAD DOG MD-16XDVD9 2.F8, Verbatim MCC03: Att.No.5
This is a scan of the original disc: “Matrix Revolutions - Disc2”
It was not possible to get a scan “behind” the Layer-Break.
Nero CD-DVD Speed does not react anymore. The drive is locked.
It takes a long time to reboot… At least some statisics:
So, I hope you can help me. I don’t know what to do.
What are your proposals?
