Can anyone recommend some good, long-lasting 6x or faster DVD+/- RW’s? Does anyone make DL RW’s?


#2

Long lasting? Who knows?!

Verbatim 6x DVD-RW are good in my experience.

Ricoh 8x DVD+RW are also good in my experience.

Dual/Double Layer RWs exist only as specs and in labs - they are not in production and you can’t buy them anywhere.

My Ricoh 8x +RW’s are very good - most trouble free RW I’ve ever had :slight_smile:

My Ricoh 8x +RW’s are very good - most trouble free RW I’ve ever had :slight_smile:


#5

I agree with both the above posts.

I use my Ricoh 8x +RWs mostly & they’re excellent.


#6

Can’t seem to locate these anywhere…any other recommendations, ridata?


#7

Where are you located? :slight_smile:


#8

Definitely nothing that has Ritek, Ridisc or Ridata on it.

You must be able to get Verbatim RWs surely.


#9

Verbatim 8x DVD+RW, if you can get them, is good.
Or if you can get Ridata 8x DVD+RW: Ask whether they have the RITEK or RICOH code, they’re switching from time to time. The RICOH ones are much more compatible.

You want long-living RWs? => You want to perform [I]full [/I]erases on a regular basis (I do that every 7-8 uses or every six months, whatever comes first). :wink:
I don’t remember where I first read this trick, but it works for me, no failure with my 4 years old 4X Verbs. :cool:


#11

Thanks guys. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to find some good +RW’s. I found Verbatims, but only in 4x. I think I may try some memorex or Fuji’s.


#12

Buy the Verbatim 4x ones, NOT Memorex or Fuji - never know what RW’s you will get for sure. Verbs are far better :iagree: - and the 4x +RW’s are very good


#13

Ok thanks.
BTW- I just came across a Memorex that I forgot I had (4x +RW) and I loaded it up with Nero CD-DVD speed, but the manufacturer says unknown, any other ways of finding out who made it?


#14

What does it say the Media ID is? It should be something like MKM A02, underneath where it says unknown for the manufacturer :slight_smile:


#15

INFODISC A10 001 (01)


#16

They’r made by Infodisc - I wouldn’t trust them for anything long term :disagree:

Poor quality RW’s don’t really last long, maybe a couple of burns


#17

There’s only one option really & that’s Verbs.

Other than the Ricoh 8x +RW media which many burners don’t support there is no other option.


#18

i know where to get the slower verbatims, 4x +rw [MKM A02], SAMSCLUB plus a few other retailers have them, but still waiting for the faster
8x +rw [MKM A03]! but meanwhile, where can you get the ricoh 8x +rw [RICOHJPN W21] in the u.s.?


#19

I am anticipating Mitsubishi/Verbatim 8X+RW. The ultra speed +RW market was flooded with Ritek 8X+RW. Ricoh 8X+RW are expensive, and I can’t spotted anywhere.

I hope MKMA03 would improve the ultra speed +RW market. :iagree:
Their 6X-RW is great.


#20

I might buy me one today :iagree:
