well can rdgrimes or code answer me this? All my scans have been outstanding for all the HP 4x dvd+r (cmcmag f01/00) i have burnt at 4x using the cmcmag r01/00 strat! the pis are always from 12-17 and pos always 2 in all my scans, and thats with simultaneous burning! Now all the burns done on memorex 4x dvd+r, khypermedia 4x dvd+r, and value discs 4x dvd+r, always have a pi of arround 35-50 and po of 2-3(still pretty decent burns though), even though they are the exact same dye!! All of them are cmc mag f01/00(checked all 4 brands), checked revisions, all the same too, all made in taiwan, but when you look at the actuall dye under the disc the HP dye is notably different than the other 3 brands, it actually looks like ricoh dye blueish color not purple like the cmc mag dye, why is this?
I think ill stick with HP from now on since i get them for $60 100 pack.
And dont get me wrong the other brands had a tremendous change also with the r01/00 write strat, but why is HP much better than the rest and the dye different if they are all the same?
thanks in advanced!!! prking
