Hey guys and gals.
I went to PC World (in the uk) today to get some panasonic branded dvd-r 16x TY media. While i was there they told me i could take 2 25 packs of "PC Line" 8x +r media for Â£5. So i snapped them up. The discs are actually unbranded with nothing printed on them.
I get home and actually look at the packaging one said 1-8x and the other says 1x (also says "mfg dte:022002" on the hub of the discs). The bottom of the 1x discs are only tinted purple; they are the most silver looking DVDR that i have ever seen.
8x MID: OPTODISC OR8
1x MID: POMSA001 R0
My BenQ 1650 is my only burner that works with them, and suprisingly burned the discs at 16x. The 8x Optodisc media arent so good though, as they are bad at the edges.
Anybody else ever had this sort of success with unknown slow media at high speeds?
Here are the scans anyway, the first is the 1x disc at 16x, and the other is the 8x optodisc @ 8x (even though 16x was selected) just for a comparison.
