It has been passed numerous times throughout the Forum that the ONLY DL Media that provides consistent quality error free results is Verbatim DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. ALL other DL Media is considered suspect (especially Memorex Branded DL Media) and should be avoided (not used).
A particular DVD Burner might appear to Burn a Memorex 8x +DL Branded Media disk â€œsuccessfullyâ€ but the playback viewing reliability of the Burned disk is suspect. Memorex Brand DL Media has well documented history of problematic layer shift problems. A Disk Quality Scan of Memorex 8x +DL Branded Media will reveal significant layer shift problems.
It should be noted that Memorex doesnâ€™t manufacture ANY Media. A package of Memorex Branded Media could be manufactured by numerous different Media Manufactures so stating Memorex 8x +DL Media doesnâ€™t provide any information on who actually manufactured the particular Media. As such it would be very difficult to definitively state that any particular DVD Burner Manufacture could successfully burn the well-documented problematic Memorex Branded Media when the actual Media Manufacture is unknown.
The definitive means of identifying Media is by providing the Media MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: MKM001) of the Media in question. To obtain the Media MID use a software utility program similar to DVDInfo (http://www.dvdinfopro.com) or DVD Identifier (http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com).
