After having finally run low on my pack of 100 8x Imations (PRODISC R03), I went to Best Buy and picked up a pack of 50 Fuji 16x DVD-Rs, made in Taiwan. They are apparently RITEKF1. Digitalfaq.com indicates that both my old Imations and these new Fujis are “class 2”.
Yet I tried three of the Fujis in a row when burning off an iso, and my trusty Recordnow Max 4.50 choked on all three before it even began burning, complaining of sector errors or somesuch. When I popped in one of my few remaining Imations, the burn went without a hitch as usual. Both discs are DVD-R.
RITEKF1, Recordnow Max 4.50, NEC ND-2500A with firmware 1.06.
Anyone care to guess why these supposedly halfway decent Fuji discs aren’t being liked? Does the software not like them? Hardware? The only difference I can point a finger to is that of the highest burn speed, but I was burning at 2x with every attempt, including the successful one on the Imation.
Thanks in advance.
