I have a couple 100 stacks of these printable Memorex MID RICOHJPN R03.
The first half of the first stack was burning beautifully but from that point forward I started getting horrible burns.
I tried burning with various drives, setting different burn speeds, taking media from different parts of both stacks but nothing seemed to sort out the problem. Inspecting the burned discs with a magnifiying glass under bright light showed no apparent signs of a bad dye pattern but still I was getting PO Failures literally in the hundreds of thousands, I mean these discs were unreadable.
Tonight I made my latest attempt to see if I could find the problem with these media. I hooked the edge of an unburned disc with my fingernail and Woah! The disc just started to peel apart…Well I guess I found the problem.
