Verbatim 6x BD-R (#43838 labled 50 pack)
CMCMAGBA5
BDR-209E/M 1.34 (manufactured 02/2017 in China)
burned @ x6

Very bad result, even for the quality range of CMCMAGBA5


#1004

True, but much better than many other media I have

Verbatim 6x BD-R (#43838 labled 50 pack)

BDR-209E/M 1.34 (manufactured 02/2017 in China)

After the really bad result above, back to normal with this Verbatim 50 pack (the spikes at the end seemed to be some dust though):


#1006

Were the drive temperatures different on these two burns?
I can remember a burn right after starting the computer, where my BDR-209 was very cold due to low room temperature. I got an average burn out of this, very unusual for drive and media combination.


#1007

Well, both were written in the evening after the computer was running ca. 8 hours, so I’d assume the temperatures would be almost the same. The only difference was that (regarding the bad reasult) about 4 hours earlier the drive had written another disc, but usually that shouldn’t matter. Room temperature was around 21°C, so nothing special.
I know that CMC media has a wide quality range, but I haven’t seen such differences with discs from the same 50 pack yet.


#1008

Ok then this was not the reason.
I have a 25 and a 50 pack of these Verbatim, too and haven’t seen any quality fluctuations yet.
But they are quite sensitive to higher speeds than 6x.

First really good result with this 50pack and the 209E, that’s how it should be. :smiley:


#1010

Very nice :slight_smile:


#1011

Probably just quality variation inside the batch. It seems that CMCMAGBA5 is the ultimate price/performance media at the moment. I hope they wont start to degrade severely in few years time…


#1012

TBH, I don´t know any media atm which make such nice results. Maybe you can have a better results with Panasonic and SONYNN3, but even with Verbatim c/e it´s hard to get so low error values


#1013

Maybe quality variation, but I have never seen this with Verbatim BD-R inside a single cake.
Or the drive is optimizing OPC for this new pack.

CMCMAGBA5
BDR-209E/M 1.34 (manufactured 02/2017 in China)
burned @ x6

The results with this 50 pack remain weird, e.g. the increase of errors between ca. 2 GB - 5.5 GB.


#1015

The FW 1.3x series has a significant drop in useless writing quality.

fw 1.20 better writing quality, 1.20 returned.

Will writing quality be a high new fw?


#1016

Panasonic 6x BD-R printable
MEIRA1
BDR-209E/M 1.34 (manufactured 02/2017 in China)

Pretty nice result with the 209 & MEIRA1 :smiley:

MCC 004
BDR-209E/M 1.34 (manufactured 02/2017 in China)

I seriously don’t get why all (!) newer Verbatim DVD+/-Rs I’ve burned have these high numbers of POEs either.

Pioneer drives make the most beautiful sounds.
Tested with DVD105SZ and DVR-R07OR/R07rZ (same as 107 and A07 technically.

Results remain weird af with this 50pack of CMC Verbatims.


#1021

How does Nero know the drive model on DVD plus?
I thought that this information only exists on DVD minus?

Additionally, is it normal that L1 (upper layer) has a much higher error count?


#1022

Maybe :wink:

If you create a test disc with CDSpeed or Opti Write Control the used writer will be written on the media.

Yep, L1 have with most DL-media a higher to much higher error-rate
