I had written 2 Taiyo DVD+R’s
One was written with a Ricoh writer.
The other a Pioneer 107-D
I scanned the Ricoh written one on the ricoh writer and the graph went up vertical i think from 2x to 4x and then went normal. (This was done with CD/DVD Speed)
I scanned the pioneer written one in the Ricoh writer and the results came up as good as they did on the pioneer drive when i scanned the pioneer written one.
Which must mean the pioneer does a better job of writing than the ricoh.
I’m at collage now. Just tried one of the DVD’s in the DVD-ROM the ricoh written one was not recognised properly.
Pioneer written one was also not recognised properly.
I was surprised.
I took the DVD out blew it and the DVD-ROM drive.
Put the disc back in and it then worked.
What im worried about is in case even the pioneer writer has made weaknesses in the media i have.
It even more surprised me that it didnt read the pioneer DVD straight away.
Is there any way i could find out its the DVD-ROM thats not good at reading or whether its a bad burn?
If i do a transfer rate test at home on the pioneer drive and the lines go how theyre meant to, does it mean its other DVD-ROMs/writers that arent that good at reading these discs?
I’m just really worried in case the pioneer and ricoh writers arent burning them strong enough.
