Hi, last week I bought 1000 DVD+R DL MKM003 [Mitsubishi] VERBATIM Disks Made in India, to backup camera security videos. As my experiences with Verbatim were always excellent I decided to learn how to make a quality test just in case.

I had MKM001 disks and the last test with kprobe2 showed this:

Date : 01/08/2011 10:10:46 p.m.
Model : 0-3-0-0 R:ATAPI iHAS122 ZL0C
Disc : DVD+R DL , MKM001 [Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation]
Speed : Max
ECC blocks sum (PI/PIF) : 8/1
Scanned range : 0 - 3827482
Sampling count : 223347
Errors : 0
PI Max : 19
PI Average : 2,01
PI Total : 56445
PIF Max : 3
PIF Average : 0,23
PIF Total : 6331

To me it appears to be the perfect media. But I ran out and bought 1000 MKM003 disks… and this is what I found:

Date : 01/08/2011 09:06:03 p.m.
Model : 0-3-0-0 R:ATAPI iHAS122 ZL0C
Disc : DVD+R DL , MKM003 [Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation]
Speed : Max
ECC blocks sum (PI/PIF) : 8/1
Scanned range : 0 - 3827485
Sampling count : 220513
Errors : 0
PI Max : 208
PI Average : 49,95
PI Total : 1403265
PIF Max : 7
PIF Average : 0,79
PIF Total : 22297

My burner is SATA LiteOn iHAS122-04 A ZL0C made in April 2011. I burned several MKM003 with the same result. Could be a crappy media? A crappy burner? A fake media? Are this results really acceptable?

Could I rely on this MKM003, and will they pass the test of time? I want at least to be readable 10 years.
Thanks for the help
