Sony Dual Layer DVD+R Scans Thread

I am wondering if the printable Verb +DL’s don’t produce as good quality writes as the non-printable ones. Is it just an off chance that I was able to get a 95% quality score when burning my Bourne Supremacy dvd on a non printable dvd, and am getting these sort of scans with the printable ones?

-scan from non-printable dvd

These results are actually not very different. Just that in your second scan, the second layer is slightly more difficult to read, higher PIE levels, but still nothing to be concerned with.

Don’t be fooled by small differences in quality scores. In @1ECC scans (like it’s the case here), a single PIF spike of 4, like in your second scan @3.6GB, makes the QS drop to 90. Without it, it would have been 93. Single spikes are not important when scanning, it’s [I]larger areas[/I] that are relevant.

The “score” reported by CDSpeed is just an indication. Sometimes it can get in the lower 80’s with perfectly good discs, simply because of one or two single spikes.

Your scans are fine, nothing to worry about. :slight_smile:

this scan is of a PRINTABLE DL

The disc was burnt from an image, and burned at 2.4x even though the option to burn at 4x was in the nero options tab.
Any reason why the printable DL’s all seem to have a bigger jump at the layer break compared to post number 2 ^^, and 1^^^ which has a consistent burn? Is it just a case of batch? :confused: :confused:

is this a coaster??? Should I reburn at 2x instead of 4x so that I dont end up with a disc that cant be read in 6 months time? :confused:



#7

Looks not that bad except that 1 spike.

You could burn them at 2.4x, but not 2x. :wink:


#8

I’d let that one go. The scan is fine, except for that one small spike.

Dual layer media hasn’t necessarily been giving the best results anyway & is still too expensive to throw away over one small glitch.

Also, because it is mitsubishi manufactured media, it should be fine for a long time anyway.

Run the disk through CDCheck to confirm that every file is perfectly readable & you should be ok :slight_smile:

I think ritek should be greatly embarassed that their media scans worse than bulkpaq, which are notorious for being bad media.


#16

Thanks to the brand ‘tuff disc’ (tuff my a$$), I have had to bin 10 discs and will have to back them up again!! ARRRGH!!!


#17

Well heres the odd few which arent as bad as my other ‘tuff disc’ media:
both written at 2.4x with firmware KY06.

Well this was the burn in post 2 that I did at 4x using just nero, burning the image straight to the drive;

And this is the result I got making an image with nero and burning with ImgBurn at 4x. :bigsmile: :
