The OptoDisc line of DVD+R DL officially supports burning up to 8.7GB data

Because double layer media, like the DVD+R DL find it difficult to accurately burn to the outer edge, most media manufacturers limit the burn capacity to 8.5GB instead of the true capacity of 8.7GB. However, many who use DVD+R DL discs often find that the content they intend to copy is often just slightly larger than 8.5GB’s. This will typically make the duplication process fail and leave the user without an option on how to copy the content due to its slightly larger size. That is why Vinpower developed its line of OptoDisc DVD+R DL media, that with the right duplication equipment, such as Vinpower’s line of DVD PLUS series of SharkCopier, TITAN, Aero, Cronus, amongst others, that slightly larger content can be copied successfully each and every time. The OptoDisc DVD+R DL allows the user to push past the listed 8.5GB media capacity limitation up to a more than adequate 8.7GB. Even though 200MB may not seem like a significant difference, for those that have a project they need to copy that is even just 5MB larger than 8.5GB, it makes all the difference in the world.

What media code could they possibly be using?

I sent them an email asking for the MID/ATIP codes or compatibility sheets.
I will post the reply here when and if I get an answer. :cool:

Would the reading part be compatible with most drives?

According to Vinpower’s VP of Marketing & Sales they are compatible with common and unmodified DVD burners and can be played in any DVD burners/players.

It seems that we won’t get any official information from Vinpower/Optodisc. :frowning:
Does anyone have a clue what could be the MID/ATIP codes of their “PlexDisc” DVD+R DL and CD-R media?
Their BD-Rs should be made by Amethystum Optoelectronics Co. (using Optodisc MID) and the BD-R DLs are/were produced (at least according to customers’ reviews on amazon) by Ritek.

I read this news as a blog posting sometime back and wondered what drive(s) would be used to overburn the discs. The 5280S-CB-PLUS and ROBOT could overburn DVD+DL discs, but the series went out of production last year. I thought that the PX-891SAF PLUS might be the successor.

Thanks. It’s a shame that Vinpower is not willing to share such vital information with their potential costumers.
