[QUOTE=chef;2039056]Were it FULL formatted?[/QUOTE]
You mean the failed disk or the brand new one?
With the failed one i tried all the possible options
DVD Info Pro: Fast Format, Full Format with and without Sub options selected.
Nero: Quick Erase and Full erase
ImgBurn: Drive - Erase - Quick and Full
All failed with errors like “can’t read disk” or just close (Nero) without any errors.
As for the brand new one - no, i didn’t do anything to it. Just stuck it in the drive, read specs in DVD Info Pro and ran the tests in Nero CD Speed
[QUOTE=chef;2039101]Correct, using a Pioneer for quality scanning is futile, useless, nada sense.[/QUOTE]
Ok, now i know
So i guess the consensus is to make nice glittering coffee cup rests out of Maxells and go with proven media?
I just wonder, it looks like Moore’s law does not apply to CD-DVD media : -) Otherwise, why is there just two trusted brands in the whole universe of media manufacturers.
