The announcement below has been superceded by this ANNOUNCEMENT:
Posting Rules and Guidelines for Blank DVD Media Tests.
ANNOUNCEMENT May 30th, 2006
This sub-forum is for posting scan results or links to scan results only! The full guidelines for this forum can be read here: Forum posting guidelines
Here are the most important points:
Find the right thread for your scans, or create a new one if none exists.
The threads are named after media maker and disc type (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, etc.).
Example: Taiyo Yuden DVD+R
Modify the subject line to include media maker, rated speed, type, and the actual burn speed.
Example: Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD+R burned at 12x
First line of the post must include the drive model and firmware, as well as the size of the burn in MB or GB.
Example: NEC ND-3500AG 2.1B, 4482 MB burned to disc
You can add additional information to the subject line and first line, but they must at least contain the information described above!
The brand the media was sold under and the MID (Manufacturer IDentification) should be included in the post.
Other information such as country of origin (e.g. Made in Japan) or batch/lot number can be included if you think it matters.
Example: TDK ScratchProof 8x DVD-R (TTH01)
[color=darkgreen]Example: HP 8x DVD-R (CMC MAG. AE1) Made in Taiwan by CMC
Example:[/color] [b]Plextor[/b] branded Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R (YUDEN000 T03) TH001330
Please only post scan(s) for a single disc per post.
If you have scans for multiple discs, please make multiple posts.
Note: Posts that have insufficient information may be deleted or moved.
[*] The exception to the rule is, that you may post in any of the open sticky threads listed at the top of the forum, if you have some comment or question relevant for that thread.
