Hot! Ordered thanks.

How much would it normally cost to buy a 100 pack of DVD+Rs?
#3
For that make, Maxell it did cost £14.99 from play the other week, but retails around £17.99. Normally 100 pack retails from £15 to £20.
#4
So these maxell ones, whats the percentage of them that actually work? or is it the DVD recorder thats the problem? I've always wondered about this, I've had countles DVD recorders, and all of them have had outstandingly terrible reliability rates. Is it the DVDs or the Recorders that are the problem?
#5
What dyes does maxell usually use?

Um when I first purchased Maxell disks from Argos 16xDVD-R same as these but like 5 years back it would never work with my old PC which had a 4x DVD writer, but since I've updated my PC to use 16x disc. I'd had no problems.

I have had a 100 spindle of these and must have had 6 or 7 fails in the spindle. The best I have had are Sony ones or the Verbatim ones from Play. Worth paying the £17.99 for in my opinion. I have had six spindles of Verbatim 100s and only had one disc fail on me. Just out of interest what speed are you writing at? The max? Always set to the minimum and you will find you get less fails.
#8
Personally I would burn any 16 speed disc at x8 speed maximum - does depend on your burner though.
#9
can someone please confirm if this printable or branded. Is it a plain coloured disc? cheers in advance.
#10
There was a section on CD-Freaks that listed DVDs by make and the dye used... But can I find it? Can I heckers like!?!
#11
Had to disable OPC to write anything to Maxells when I had some. Minor inconvenience but got them to work so can't really complain at the price!
#12
OPC?

Give a dubo a clue!!! Heheh

OPC?

OPC = Optimum Power Calibration

OPC monitors and maintains the writing quality to the disc but some discs burn at a lower quality with this setting enabled.

I only ever use Bigpockets for all my blank media, and compatible ink! My ink is only 87p for one! And if your after non printable blank dvds there only £4.98 for 50. xxx
#15
Looks like a good deal
(I prefer -R if I can get them too cos of the extra couple of Mbs capacity, once in a while it makes all the difference).

I have found that with Panasonic, NEC & Samsung drives if I burn slowly (minimum speed) and use a decent quality branded disc (I used to always use Memorex but now only use Verbatim) I never get a failure (tho I do update my burner every 2 years).

Seriously, it's years since I had a disc fail on me
(even - thank God in view of their ridiculous pricing - dual layer DVDs).

I think the key is to burn as slowly as you can, it's only 15 mins to burn a full DVD5 @ x4 speed, who can't spare that?
#16
Could anyone possibly recommend me a decent deal/supplier for blank dual layer dvds please?

Only need a couple but i know they are poor value in such small quantities.

thanks

Maxell DVD-R's media codes are usually RITEKF1 or CMC MAG AM3, and sometimes PRODISC F02

Big Pockets postage is too expensive for blanks.

A good price; but I've had very mixed results with these disks (assuming they're the same dye); one 16x burner has no problems whatsoever, but the 8x burners on my laptops have had a couple of coasters; however I bought them to use with my HDD/DVD Recorder and I've had 8 out of 10 coasters - unfortunately I can't control the burn speed on this so if it's a 16x disk it will try to burn at 16x.
From a couple of hundred Sony 16x I've had just one or two coasters, so I blame the disks and not the burners.

yeah because i need to buy a 6.99 cd holder everytime i want to buy something

Does anyone know if these disks are the same, but a bigger pack to http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3440545/Maxell-DVD-R-16X-50-Discs-Exclusive-Bourne-Ultimatum-Pack/Product.html ? Because i have the same discs that are in the posted url and they are RITEKF1, which are 2nd class media. Does anyone know what disks are first class media? I dont care if the disc fails to write and i have to chuck the cd out, but once its burnt i dont want to have to find a few years later that it doesnt work. Does anyone know if im better safeguarded against longevity of a disk by sticking to a 1st class over 2nd class, or do classes purely have to do with burn failure rates?

They will probably be the same, or CMC MAG AM3. These are reasonably reliable discs, but can vary in quality.

If you need discs that you can rely on, you need to be looking at Taiyo Yuden discs, or pretty much anything made by Verbatim.

BTW, does anyone know what class these other discs i use are? I get them from poundland, 4 for £1



They have the same media code as Verbatim, but I would be almost be certain that they are fake MCC 004 discs. Budget disc producers use established brand's media codes to they can get dvd burners to write, as each media code has a burning strategy in the drives firmware. These fake discs generally degrade very quickly and could probably be unreadable in a short time, some have been know to be unreadable within weeks.
#28
@ Adnan786 i think they are the same as the good class 1 Verbs! Afterall Verbatim is the brand name for Mitsubishi DVDs. Good price (25p) for the media considering the pack size.

The code i gathered, aswell, was from 1st class media MCC004, but someone else said that they are most probably fake. So i dont know whether i should embrace them as 1st class reliable dvd's or avoid them like the plague now lol. I mean 4 for a £1 isnt exactly THAT cheap, cosidering thats £25 for 100 when these maxell ones are £11 for 100 or at normal price £17.99
