    I'm looking for a simple M-Disc BD writer that doesn't require any software running to burn data & vids on a BD M Disc. Just connect & use your own software like imgburn.


    I've read some comments on various forums that DVD & early HDDVD had a better structure to BD for longevity in well kept environment. I can't find exactly what this means & how it effects the long life of a BD pressed or dyed? I take it the scratch proof on BD is largely useless fore long life in a well kept environment?

    Why does DVD-R structure last longer over BD-R for your backed up data?

    Thanks

    DVD and HD-DVD were a sandwich.
    BD is an inverse CD-R, with a thin film cover. It's not archival.

    M-DISC is all talk, and no follow-through. TY and MCC/MKM are still more readable.

    Yeah I stayed clear off m disc. nothing but marketing rubbish, just reading their faq shows that. The archival disc is a good useful size of storage if its legit.

    The best I could find was Panasonic BD-R archival grade. Should be a lot better than the cheapo verbatim & TDK I was using.

    I've burned a couple of M-disc BD's to try it out on my LG writer. No special software needed. Just use Imgburn like you would for writing to any blank BD disc.

    You've discredited M-Disc a few times on here. What are the reasons you don't think its legit?
