In my country, there are no cheap dvd+r media (having tdk, sony and such).
There are three cheap dvd-r available; Ritek, Prodisc and Fortis (In fact, we also have princo).
I’m plan to purchase benq dw822a or nec-2500a soon.
If someone have dw822a with firmware B3HC would you mind posting the test result of these 3 media here?
B3HC should only support 8x DVD-R made by Ritek(G06)、Maxwell(MXL RG03)、TY(TG02)
The good thing is that the Benq DW822A Records several types of 4x DVD+R media at 8x! So I’ll recommend you to get some good 4x DVD+R media instead.
TDK, Ricoh, Verbatim, Fujifilm, Imation, Memorex and other 4x DVD+R media should work at 8x.
Look for 4x media with these media codes:
They should all work at 8x
I had tried YUDEN000T01 overspeed at 8x on 800A with B3HC.
The result was really impressive!
Jamos did a - media comparison against those two burners. Here’s the thread, but its missig the pictures. His comments were favorable towards the Prodisc and Ritek though.
Ritek DVD+R02 is not really perfect, at least on my DW822A @ B3HC:
(But also not really bad, as you can see.)
I got some Riteck R02 ,too burned with Benq822a@8X, nero 6.3.10
here CMC F01 burned with benq822a@b3bc@8x. nero 6.310
ok this one is not really good, because ich havent burned the whole disc.
ritek is not ritek, i had some ritek R02 labled with Ultron (a german mark), too. but i cant burn this media with benq822@8x(pi----->1200) :Z
i feel, that with the firmware upgrade, the support for ritek is getting worth…
>i feel, that with the firmware upgrade, the support for ritek is getting worse…
I don’t think it’s getting worse, but imho it doesn’t get better either… :O)
ps: I forgot to mention that I burned my R02 @4x. So I don’t want to see it @8x.
but I have burned the R02 with 8X… it was realy better with B3bc…
now I am scanning the result burned with B3Ic (its not finished besause benq need lonnnggg time (1,5X)) it really doesnt look as good as with B3bc.
please look the first pic i have posted here, it was a R02@benq822a@8X
But. as I’ve already said, Ritek has also quality difference, so maybe I have got a “A” charge.

I bought mine from instantinfo.com as a-grade. So it should be as good as yours. Maybe You have e-grade (extra-grade). Or it could be your 822 is a bit better than mine…
>its not finished besause benq need lonnnggg time (1,5X)
Yeah that really sucks, but I won’t complain. Because other drives don’t support pi/po at all. And because it is so slowly it can be done in the background, even when playing 3d-shooters… :O)
so for firmware. is B3IC better than B3HC?
This scan is from a cakebox of Memorex 4X DVD+R’s. Burnt at 8X using DVD Decrypter/ASPI 4.0.60 on a true 822a with B3IC. I love this burner
