  5. Yes, the polycarbonate layers are there to protect the dye and reflective layers, and to provide structural rigidity. Polycarbonate is hard to break but it scratches pretty easily.

  6. 1 is proven that Polycarbonate is done in order to protect data from disc and read from disc?


    2 if the polycarbonate was made to protect because there are very scratched discs that have damaged your reading or even data loss by scratches? was to be 100% safe from scratching


    3 In a DVD + R has many layers of polycarbonate?

    1. Jagabo and others answered YES.
    Jagabo e outros responderam SIM.

    Egyptians used stone tablets for data.
    Egípcios usavam tábuas de pedra para dados.

    Stone and wood are not the best for DVD surfaces.
    Pedra e madeira não são os melhores para superfícies de DVD.


    2. Unclear translation. Perhaps you meant to ask, Is there a 100% scratch-proof surface?
    Existe uma superfície à prova de arranhões 100%?

    Diamonds. But some diamonds can scratch other diamonds.
    Diamantes. Mas alguns diamantes podem arranhar outros diamantes.

    Egyptian tablets suffered from 3,000 years of sand erosion, but many are still readable.
    Tábuas de pedra egípcias sofriam de 3.000 anos de erosão de areia, mas muitos são ainda legíveis.

    No one kept 3,000-year-old stone-DVD players. I don't know why.
    Ninguém manteve os jogadores de pedra-DVD 3.000 anos de idade. Não sei porquê.

    I did check eBay, yes.
    Fiz uma checagem eBay, sim.

    3. Not a useful question. Number Of Layers is not important.
    Número de camadas não é importante.

    DVDs must be a certain thickness, no more, no less.
    DVDs devem ser uma certa espessura, não mais, nem menos.

    Players need Disks to be a certain thickness. That is how thick polycarb layers are.
    Os jogadores precisam de discos para ser uma certa espessura. Isso é polycarb como grossa camadas são. DVDs devem ser uma certa espessura, não mais, nem menos.

    If they need 2 layers for proper thickness, then they use 2.
    Se eles precisam de 2 camadas de espessura adequada, então eles usam 2.

    If they need 17, they use 17.
    Se eles precisam de 17, eles usam 17.

    Fungus not included.
    Fungo não incluído.

    jagabo - Maybe you need help with that OCD. Seriously. Even sanlyn gave up here and that dude never gives up. Can you two just take this up in IM or maybe private email? Clearly your OCD isn't going to let you walk away.

    Some overdue corrections...

    Egyptian tablets suffered from 3,000 years of sand erosion, but many are still readable.
    Tábuas de pedra egípcias sofreram 3.000 anos de erosão pela areia, porém muitas delas são ainda legíveis.

    No one kept 3,000-year-old stone-DVD players. I don't know why.
    Ninguém manteve/preservou os tocadores de DVD-de-pedra de 3.000 anos de idade. Não sei por que.

    DVDs must be a certain thickness, no more, no less.
    DVDs devem ter uma certa espessura, nem mais, nem menos.

    Players need Disks to be a certain thickness. That is how thick polycarb layers are.
    Os tocadores precisam que os discos tenham uma certa espessura. As camadas de policarbonato vão ter a espessura exigida.

    If they need 17, they use 17.
    Se precisarem de 17, vão usar/ter 17.

    Okay, now this thread can be sent to the Off-Topics.

    Dear thanks for your help


    1 In this link you posted talks on substrate, which is substrate?


    2 the link does not say what the thickness of two layers of polycarbonate, I'm not talking about the total disk thickness of only 2 layers of polycarbonate


    3 on a DVD + R which is the name of the layer responsible for reading the disc?

    Heggunte, thanks for the far superior grammar. It's been a while since my 3-year-stint in Brasilia (1988?!!) and I no longer can tell Good from Bad grammer or word choices. Thanks. Sorry for any offending humor in there - I simply could not stop myself.

    Jagabo, your ID could easily be "Job" as in "The patience of..." Congrats and thanks, and atta-boy, too.

    I was talking to jman. I agree, there's something wrong with the OP. But I'll respond to posts I want to respond to, and he's free to respond to the posts he wants to.

    After reading through: I almost want to tell the OP to scratch the top layer off the disc, and see if it'll play.

    I know that certain commercial CDs have the written layer on the top of the polycarbonate layer, and, when scratched deeply - will render the disc useless.

    The FAQ on DVDs, CDs and blueray recordable should be enough if the OP would read.

    You've already been given links that show that CDs do not have a polycarbonate layer on the top.

    I don't know why the members of VH are being so rude/mean to this person.

    Yes, the OP is over-concerned with some topics, but I'd rather that than run into someone that assumes or insists you can buy anything and it's perfectly fine, as most people do. He's asking some good questions, even if tedious.

    There's also a language barrier, but I'm fine with that.

    We've been answering him here:
