UmeDisc BD-R

Xlayer 25GB 6x / UMEBDR016

Burned with Pioneer BDR-209EBK @6x (speeddown to 4x)


Speeddown with a BD-R?

Are there visible dye errors like this?

Yes, looks kinda weird

And it is only good visible after burning? Had similar problems with some MBIR06, but not so often

If Ume had also such bad DVD-media I would say they are generally bad. But their DVD-media have very good batches.

I know MBI used this MID in the past, but this is made in China and uses Stamper which are similar to Ume.

BD-R AP1041210

The reults remind me a bit of MBI, but it´s more sensitive to higher scan speeds.

The LG needs much time for LeadIn and Nero returned an error like “A Reset has occurred”. So I used Imgburn and it works

Best result with this media so far

Oh, the Lite like this media.

I guess this media don´t have the “clouds” like the Kodak?

No clouds. But you can easily look through the discs, haha.

Yep, I don´t remember one of my LGs have ever slowdowned the burning speed with BD-R

And it looks it prevented a more worse result, The lDC and BIS decrease at this mark, but still bad.

It reminds me of my very bad exemplars of the Kodak with this MID, the “cloudy surface”-problem
