My Pioneer writer is a few of years old now. Could it have contributed to the poor quality of burn?[/QUOTE]
Perhaps you may start considering your hardware because honestly we have no complaints about these discs and continue selling good. Actually the complaints about burning has decrease significantly to almost “0” compared to last year. Here some of our data that we collect carefully.
Most troubled burner: LG (especially models made in 2008 -2010)
Best seller: TDK
Complaint ranking April
1- Verbatim (2)
2- JVC (2) buyer “kirby7777” -about quality- and a buyer from Canada claiming the new JVC batch had a different MID code but he never replied back and we think he probably was confused (its a long time big buyer by the way)
3- TDK (0)
4- Sony (0)
5- Panasonic (0)
6- Taiyo yuden (0)
We are really relieved of complaints dropping drastically because we are just resellers not manufacturers however we get all kinds of blame when burning failures occurs.
