Thread: Dvd+r dl
We have said the same thing over and over again here.
The ONLY reliable DVD+R DL media is Verbatim. Period.
Ritek and TDK are NOT Verbatim. If you buy ANYTHING other than Verbatim, you are wasting your money and you will often burn coasters.
We know that Taiwan companies can produce very good media. Verbatim uses Taiwan to make its excellent DataLifePlus single layer DVD-R and DVD+R discs. They use a plant owned by Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation. But nobody in Taiwan uses MCC to make DVD+R DL discs as far as I know. Verbatim only makes DVD+R DL discs now in Singapore and India.
If you must use DVD-R DL, then the only good ones are Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden. Taiyo Yuden does not make DVD+R DL discs.
well i dont use verbatim as DVD+R DL bcoz its only 2.4x where TDK is 8x i had problems with verbatim i wasted more than 5 disc from opening lead in session since i am using TDK only 1 disc gone + TDK is cheaper.
I am not count out Verbatim bcoz i am using them as BDR but more prefers Panasonic.
for now i dont have any empty Verbatim disc right now
but thx for advice looks like i have to reburn this ISO file again
Again, we do NOT recommend anything but Verbatim for DVD+R DL.
Verbatim's 2.4x DVD+R DL discs are made in India, except for the expensive and excellent DataLifePlus series which is made in Singapore. We've had a lot of arguments about made in India Verbatime DVD+R DL discs. Some people say they are fine. Others say they are junk. Verbatim's 6x-10x DVD+R DL discs are only made in Singapore as far as I can tell. Verbatim discs made in Singapore are excellent.
If you must use TDK then I do not recommend that you burn them above 2.4x speed or you will likely have bad burns. Burning at 8x is just asking to have problems.
I do have some non-printable Verbatim AZO 8x DVD+R DL discs, which are labelled Made in Taiwan on the cake package. MID is MKM-003 as in my Made in Singapore ones. Hub code is PAH-something, meaning CMC? The cake box (incl. font) is identical to the MIS ones.
I recall them having problems with one of my DVD burners.
Btw, I did read this thread
i have VERY FEW ISO/vob 8gb files on hdd so i am not really worry about that. Also lot content which was prepared for DVD+R DL times but i was allways tellin to myself later and later and now i can burn that on BD
Mostly mine DVDR DL content was Verbatin/TDK but i got also some unknown shit like Platinum Maxwell but all that burned 2.4
about recording mode i was talkin few year ago with audiofreaks and they told me "never burn CD-Audio faster than 4x" LOl but i burner alot with even 2x but last time 8x
speed 6x was exactly speed which i choosed to burn mine last DVD+R DL
to me it seems you either havent read or understood all what jman98 posted in extension.....
"Maxwell" doesnt exist, many people from the UK feed that myth.
The brand is called Maxell and they produce Ricoh MIDded media. Platinum is similar to Intenso, they always rebadge overproductions.
And TDK DVD±DL media is also junk.
"never burn xxx at yyy speeds" is always dependent on 3 golden rules:
1. type of content
2. media type
3. burner & firmware used
2 & 3 dictate what speeds you even can use at all!!*** Now that you have read me, do some other things. ***
I am not using DVD-R DL only +R.
I will not call TDK junk media. They are older than Verbatim TDK was created in 1935 and now they are almost 1 bilion income. They are creating dozen more produts than Verbatim.
Both of them are Japan.
reading your posts is like propaganda that nothing other exist on this planet besides Verbatim
What will u buy IF 4 example u are in a hurry but Verbatim disc are temporaily out of stock
UK market is more US market they are importers from American market tons of medias.
right now i have 6 remaining Verbatim disc DVD+R DL burning them @ speed 6x
and bout 15 bdr disc TDK blue color those are 25Gbs and one sony BD-RE speed 2x
i bought other TDK BD-RE disc speed 2x but it cant cross speed 1x so i will sell it and will buy Verbatim also BD-RE
and again no offence from mine side but just wana check all medias and good to know that Verbatim is such strong media.
TDK uses only the lowest quality manufacturers for their DVD media. Sometimes for the Japanese domestic market only some TDK media is actually made by Taiyo Yuden, but TY does not ever make DVD+R DL discs, so your discs are not made by TY. I am certain of that. That means that they are crap.
25GB discs are NOT DVD+R DL, so you're not even comparing the same thing. Your post was about DVD+R DL media (although your subject said DVD-R DL) and now you've changed it to talk about BluRay discs. Not the same thing. I've used TDK BD-R discs and while I won't buy them again because they use low quality manufacturers on those too (I absolutely did not know this when I bought them and I bought BD-R discs for the Japanese domestic market so I hoped maybe TY would make them), the ones I burned were all OK. Their DVD+R DL discs are really bad, but again, we really don't care if you want to use them.
It seems to me that maybe the real reason for your post is that some people who come here, you really don't want advice or help. What you really want is for us to tell you that you are a genius for buying TDK DVD+R DL because they are just as good as everything else and you are very smart because you figured that out on your own. Sorry, but we told you the truth about your discs and if you don't like it, that is too bad.
No i just dont like propagadna like comercial BUY THIS DONT BUY THIS ONLY THIS.
Why SONY disc are extemely expensive same with PANASONIC?
can u give me proof why TDK uses shitty manufacture and Verbatim not?
again no office but ppl will describe u a verbatim freak if they will see that u are using ONLY 1 company disc and others are crap
i was adding blu day subject coz i didnt wanted proceed 2 separated thread and u said everything in herre and no one is making garbage.
I have to use DVD+DL bcoz some companies r simply dont realase their movies on BD thats why.
Most of us are happy to be called Verbatim freaks. It is nice to feel confident that the DVD media that you are burning is unlikely to let you down.
Eight years ago, I primarily used TDK, which burned reliably at the time, but then about a year later, all of a sudden I was burning a lot more coasters. Little did I know that TDK had changed their manufacturing process and had begun outsourcing manufacturing to other companies. At that point I switched to Verbatim and I can count the number of bad burns out of hundreds of DVD-R discs burned since on the fingers of one hand. I also have burned over 40 DVD+R DL discs and never had a single coaster. Can you say that about new TDK media today?
Yeah, TDK was fine ~ 8-9 years ago, then they went to hell.
Hey anyone determined to do it the hard way is entitled, but you should take the advice given about DVD+R DL discs. Your memorex DL discs are almost certainly CMC Magnetics discs. I burned a fair number of them for "tossers", knowing a good many would fail. Boy, did they ever. They were real cheap in bulk from Meritline. That's the only positive thing one could say about them.Pull! Bang! Darn!
Incredible how ignorant you play here.
You came here, showed us that you have virtually no clue nor knowledge about drives & media, then you got top and direct to to the point advice which you ignored in a lame of the lamest way.
Well, good luck with your stupid attitude.*** Now that you have read me, do some other things. ***
