Does software matters, when writing double layers DVDs?
My software for DL media has been ImgBurn.
I’m not aware how burning software and drive negotiate with each other about best write strategy but obviously they should do that.
I used happily ImgBurn and DL Mitsubishi MKM-003-00 for 2 years, which occurred to be the same media as Verbatim but cheaper. Until my supplier, a dedicated DVD duplication office, stopped supplying this media few month ago and I was suggested a RITEK-S04-66.
Ritek media had been bought repeatedly in quantities by same users and there is no other explanation, that this media is good too.
But I can write with ImgBurn only Verbatim and everything else fails.
I have checked unsuccessfully CMC, Ricoh, Ritek …
Is it really a bad media or maybe instead a software limitation to handle drives capabilities properly??? It’s hard to believe that 90% of DL media is crap.
My main burners have been Opti 7240S 2 drives and several other manufacturer models including Plextor and now I’m waiting arrival of Pioneer DVR-S19L to check it :-).
