Prodiscs are good media!

just a thread to prove that Prodisc DVD+R R02 and DVD-R R03s are good media. for some unknown reason they have been getting alot of abuse about being poor media. im here to set the record straight…if you have a correct writing strategy for these disks they are some of the best out there…imho

first burn 8x from benq DW822A stock fw with Prodisk DVD+R 4x bought from www.accaproducts.com (they only carry 8x now).

media block:


0000 : 01 0f 02 00 00 03 00 00  00 25 e1 1f 00 00 00 00   .........%......
0010 : 00 00 01 50 52 4f 44 49  53 43 00 52 30 32 00 38   ...PRODISC.R02.8

Thx for the scans Jamos.
Please add a scan to the media test database.
This stuff burns pretty good :bigsmile:
My buddy Ludovick is going to order some ProdiscR02.

Prodisk DVD-R 4x S03 burned on benq DW822A at 4x

I dont think the write strategy is quite right for this media for this drive. the POs at the end seem a bit high…but really this media plays fine in all my players. PIs are excellent.

benq still has work to do with dvd-r media

Prodisk S03 DVD-R 4x burned at 4x on NEC 2500A with stock 1.07 fw.

This is gonna blow your mind for a 58 cent dvd!

this just shows how a good write strategy can make a excellent burn. :wink:


#10

Truly excellent Jamos.

These are great scans. Are these the best scans that you have produced?

What burning program + mode, aspi layer version, CPU, and OS are your using?

Thanks.


#11

using decryptor to write image file spti interface or sometimes elbys dvdclone interface. aspi 4.6. Athlon 3200xp, 1 gig ram. xp pro sp1.


#12

I can say that I get similar results to Jamos. Very, very low PI/PO on Prodisc S03 media with the 2500A and Pio 107.


#13

Same here. I got some “Legacy” DVD-R from Newegg yesterday ($32 shipped for 50 pk mothers day sale). They ID as PRODISC03, or is it PRODISCS03? Anyway I got a Kprobe scan almost identical to the one above when burned with my 2500 using Herrie’s beta 1.08.

Mind if I ask where youi found these for $.58?


#14

http://www.accaproducts.com/prdv44x1ea102.html .54Cents now :wink:


#15

The 1.07 firmware readme.txt from www.necd.de says it’s only for retail/bulk drives. NOT OEM. Are the internals of the OEM drive different from the retail/bulk?

Which of Herrie’s will give the same quality for the Prodiscs +R -R?

Thanks :slight_smile:


#16

hmm the dvd+r 8x R03s are crap! actually the 4x rR02s are better media burning at 8x thant the R03 8x media is!


#17

Hehe. Sounds like Ricoh R00 & Ricoh R01 vs. Ricoh R02. The earlier ones did a better job with 8x. :wink:

The other possibility, of course, is that Prodisc R03 strategies in firmwares have not been refined enough.


#18

@Jamos, can you clarify this statement? On what burners are you refering too?


#19

heres my burn from 2500a with herries 108beta3 (same for 107 stock) not bad burn but i get WAY better 8x burns with my prodisk r02s(see above)! r03s are bout 85 cents each where r02s are bout 65 cents.



#20

heres benq burn at 8x using stock fw…as you can see the nec is far superior with this media.
