I’m just starting to use my ND-3520A, and this is my first try of DVD-RW media. It’s a Prodisc DW04 x2 DVD-RW (branded Memory Media, and strangely labeled x4). While it is readable, I’m uncomfortable using it because the results are extremely bad (see below). I found on the forums a scan of similar media on a non-NEC drive which was much better. Perhaps the NEC doesn’t support it correctly?
Is RW media expected to have more errors than R? If to extrapolate from CD media, my CD-RW scans usually showed that yes, most of the discs were worse than CD-R, and some almost comparably as bad as this DVD-RW disc.
Please share your thoughts, and your experiences with DVDÂ±RW media, this and others.
NOTE: Scans at x5 reading and x8. (Couldn’t figure out how to inline the images, sorry).
