Its been a while since ive posted on here and had a search around but today I decided to do a few tests/scans of some TY Watershield DVD-R (TYG03 16x) as I was coming to the end of my tub of 50. I dunno why I didn’t do some scans when I first got them, I just assumed they would do the job.
Having burnt on both my BenQ 1620 and Pioneer 111D drive at 8x, 12x and 16x; all scanned in my BenQ, the results show that the edge of the disc seems abit problematic. Perhaps nothing serious but could it be a cause for concern in the future or is this just a poor batch or my burner’s?!?
There doesn’t seem to be many scans of watershield burns on the forums, though the one’s I have seen don’t have such a big rise in errors at the edge of the disc. The majority of non-watershield TYG03 burns are pretty consistent and good quality with no increase in errors at the edge of the disc.
Im considering re-ordering some watershield as I really like the printable surface compared to the normal inkjet surface available on TY media.
Id really like to hear your views on the issue, whether its just a bad batch, the scanning drive, burning drives or just a problem with the watershield coating.
Perhaps a new burner, such as the samsung 203, good resolve the issue?!
Any comments are appreciated.
