I would like your input on the behaviour of MCC003 dvd’s made in India.
Its the first time I received spindels of Verbatim media made in India.
Until now I always had verbatims made in Taiwan. (which all were just fine)
The ones from India are not that good unfortunately.
First of all the media quality check from Plextools gives me the message as shown below.
At all speeds it says that the media is of poor quality.
I have randomly tried 10 dvd’s from the 50, with all the same result…
Not completely discouraged I burned 5 of the dvd’s at several speeds.
6x and 8x give the best results.
The PIE graphs are not as good as from the Verbatims MIT (which all had a max of < 10).
But I dont mind the lil bit higher PIE, aslong as the PIF-graph looks good which it does!
The main problem with these dvd’s is that the 716A has to spin up 3 to 5 times when it has to access the data on the dvd. The plextor seems to have trouble recognizing the dvd. When inserting a dvd it takes at least 50 seconds for the drive to recognize and read it.
Any ideas about the reason of this strange behaviour?
