The rarest/most obscure recordable medium

OK, so far, sorry, have had no time to read all your previous posts…
Could you post the full MID and some pics of the disc cover front&back??

Overall, looks promising, will try to reproduce it here with my own drives & media.
Which firmwares come the 182D drives with?

PS: Probably the name of the media is misleading here…

The first copy which is not able to burn successfully standard media is with SB07. The second one that seems healthy on regular media is with SB03. I can actually update it to SB07 and see if results change at all.

Yes, “G” is missing in authoring version:
MCC 00RG200 - general
MCC 00R 200 - authoring

…yeah, that’s why I was confused by this info.

" Burnt with MSI DR12-A at 2x using firmware 120D ."

It also mentions “…for Authoring” in the info. :wink:

Accesstek/Optrorite are also very rare writers


#1621

These days…yes. But they are also DVD-R* burners for general media. :wink:
Didn’t they have also QSI components?!


#1622

Unknown Brand DVD-R (A) Glossy Printable
MID: MCC 00R 190

Optiarc 5240 recognizes DVD-R (A) media, reports 3,3x write speed, but does´nt really write.


#1623

Dunno, the opnly writers I ad were MSI CR52M and CR52-A2


#1624

Yeah, that’s the usual behaviour of drives that cannot deal with DVD-R(A) media, AFAIK.

Nice discs!


#1625

Most DVD writers do not even recognize the MID of DVD-R (A) media.
Optiarc 5240 is already an exception.


#1626

I just acquired some Verbatim HD DVD-R DL (30GB) media. Expensive and rrrrrrare, yup.

#1627

Hope you have a good writer for it :wink:


#1628

Yeah, the 912, the only writer I could get. :wink:


#1629

Slim-drive, HD-DVD-drives are really hard to get


#1630

802A (HH), SD-L802B, SD-L902A are easily acquireable, even these days.

As long as the drive is reliable, I don’t care about the form factor! :wink:


#1631

Hm, don´t find many drives on Ebay

And I think some drives on your list are only HD-DVD-readers


#1632

ebay is not everything…

Also, you wrote “HD-DVD-drives” earlier.

The drives I’ve listed are easily to find and to acquire these days.
The only one really available earlier supporting writing to HD DVD-R DL media, is the Toshiba SD-L912A.
HH versions of that were never really in the market.

BTW, probably yesterday someone deleted the HD DVD drives list on wikipedia for unknown reason. Thats bad! PS: What jerks, see yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_HD_DVD_devices


#1633

This “reason” can only be a joke ?!?

BTW, if we discuss about a writable medium I think always about a writer because you can have a hard time to use a blank media with a reader :wink:


#1634

Isn’t this one using a gold reflective layer?


#1635

I was able to get some more Swisstec and Commax media.


#1636

Wow, very nice :slight_smile:
