which is your favourite pick.

I have been using datasafe ritek G04 with good results, but at 4x only. I was hoping to get either a 6x dvd-r disc or an 8x dvd+r disc (well, 4x burnt at those speeds)

I was thinking prodisc S03, or prodisc R02 for cheapness.

In order to help, here’s a lengthy list.

ADVDINFO: RICOHJPNR01 …burnt 50 @8x last week, 1 iffy, no fails

thats all i ever use now

these used to be good but not now
{DV 3071/25} Ritek Inkjet Printable A Grade 4x DVD-R in pack of 25
ADVDINFO: .RITEKG…04.
clearly grade B or C, loads of fails at 4x

(all burns on the fly, 8x burns have 4 buffer underruns per disk)


#3

yeah, i bought some G04 overprints - the ones they say are grade A, and had 11 fails out of 11.

datasafe G04 have been good for me, but id like to try something else because of the unknown nature of G04’s in general.


#4

Does it have to be from SVP?

I’ve just ordered a load of discs from www.cd-rmedia.co.uk

Very fast delivery and good prices.

I went for the following -

Taiyo Yuden 80min 48x CD-Rs (22p each)
Verbatim 4x Pastel DVD-R (Taiyo Yuden Discs) (95p each)
Zero Defex 4x DVD+RW (Ricoh Discs) (£1.20 each)

I would recommend them highly.

Whatever you do DON’T get the Bulkpaq Orange.
I’m looking to get some more blanks this weekend (£1 shipping over £30) and can’t make my mind up either.
Used the Datasafe G04’s without TOO much trouble - though they were a little variable with certain software. Plus the ones they show there have bigger labelling - all these G04 scare stories have put me off.
It’s hard wading through all the tests to see what the burns are like.

Will probably get
{DV 3103} Bulkpaq Printable 4x DVD-R discs in a tubs of 25
ADVDINFO: ProdiscS03

{DV 3115} Bulkpaq Printable 4x DVD+R in Spindle tubs of 25
ADVDINFO: PRODISC…R02

Seems the Prodiscs have been doing well.

Also anyone know what these are like
{DV 3095} CMC Unbranded 4x DVD-R in spindle tubs of 25
ADVDINFO: .CMCMAG…AG1.
?

RICOH JPNR01

my favorite Dye :slight_smile:


#7

i decided to go with the R02’s due to excellent price and good scans in the b7 thread =]


#8

I have been using
{DV 3058} Datawrite Yellow 4x DVD-R in packs of 25
ADVDINFO: W.P…PRINCO.

Done about 150 of these no errors but lately they have become iffy … Dunno if Machine or Writer or media. I suspect media.

Apart from FWS Ritek that SVP use to do I have had nothing but problems . Does not matter which firmware I have been using.

I want to try these
{DV 3099} Prodisc Printable 4x DVD-R in tubs of 25
ADVDINFO: ProdiscS03.

or

{DV 3051} New Datawrite “RED” V3 4x DVD-R in tubs of 25
ADVDINFO INFOSMART…01

Any Comments. Especially with compatibilty with Xbox.

What about +R’s, not got round to using those yet. Any recommendations. They need to work with xbox aswell.

SVP stock far too much Ritek media which I know work well with the Pioneer writers. But as they also sell the NEC, they should look at other media.
