Anyone know if these are guaranteed to work in any dual-layer DVD+R recorder?
#2
any1 know if xbox drives like these?
#3
There are no guarantees of 100% compatibility, there will always be incompatibilities. You might find that if you have a problem, burning them slower or updating the drive's firmware will help.

I would think these would be perfect for recording on any dual layer DVD+R recorder, with it being a good brand.

What I'd like to know if anyone has used this brand before for 360 disks? I use Aone at the moment, but at this price, these work out cheaper.


I use Aone aswell, they work perfect with every xbox drive. These work out cheaper. Might just give it a try,

At £10 for 25 of these I'd say they're definitely worth a shot!. I only ever use Verbatims and have never had a coaster (100+ burns) but I'm going to give these Memorex discs a try. If you copy your games to the 360 hard drive then you're less likely to get disc read errors from cheap media anyways.

Edit..

I always used Verbatims for the 360, were the best by far.
#7
I had a few packs of these when they were £19.99 from maplin reduced from £40.00, so at £9.99 they are a steal!
I have a pioneer 216 and i have not had any failures with these discs all used in my 360 too. Heat added

Ive tried a few different types. What i find is they all play fine in the liteon drives but put them in to a sammy, hitatchi, bens and they fail. With the Aone's its been a 100% success rate with all drives. Ive just ordered some of these anyway. Hopefully they will still be on offer when they get delivered so i can try them out and order more if they work. Would be good if anyone on here is using them already and can give us the thumbs up:thumbsup:

Nice 1:thumbsup:
#10
Ordered a couple packs :thumbsup:. 50 of these are still about £6-£7 cheaper than 25 Verbs!. Even if they suck I'm sure I'll manage to get at least 25 good burns out of them :p.
#11
Yes, these have got to be worth a try for £9.99. I have used AOnes too and I find they work fine when they're first burned but 6 months later they don't. :shock:

bit of a rip off really, unless you really need dual layer, i got 25 single layer memorex for £2.50

So you think these are a ripoff just because you personally don't need or use dual layer? :?.

Bit of a stupid statement really.......

These are very cheap for DUAL LAYER
#15
I've had these from maplin when I needed some urgently and couldn't wait for delivery of some verbs - no coasters.

P.S. Anyone seen PC World have removed the 10 pack of Verbs from sale? I've had them before when I couldn't wait for SVP.
#16
will give these a try anyone tried them with benq drive

i use arita riteks burnt hundreds never had a failure but have recently gone up to around 15 from 10, plus no P&P on these huge bonus

Yeh. Those big bags of pasta are a ripoff at the supermarket aswell, who needs a massive bag of pasta when one bowlful will do?

And having a big petrol tank on your car, whats that all about, why not just have a little tank and keep filling up?

And don't even get me started on the eggcup / pint glass ripoff!

If like most people, you use these for Xbox games then yes you do NEED DL discs as they won't fit on single layer ones!

Could always burn half a game I guess as they are only £2.50 for 25... :?

I find it always helps to know what you are talking about before you comment, saves any embarrasment!

Retard of the day award.

'Cheese is a rip off, 200g costs £2.10?!? I got 2L of milk for £1.40 ffs!'
#21
I think the point derektrotter was making was that buying dual layer DVDs is much more expensive in terms of cost per Gb than buying single layer DVDs. Therefore don't buy dual layer unless you specifically need the extra capacity.

Good price.

I got a mongoose riding a monocycle for £17.87.

Just about as relevant ...

to be fair to him, would you buy 100l of petrol at £2 a litre if you could buy 50l of petrol at £1 a litre? No. Only if you really needed 100l of petrol! else you'd just buy 2x50l of petrol and save yourself money!

I once lost a sock in the wash, and I had to buy a whole PAIR to replace them. Rip off. (but heat for this)

very stupid statement, thats like saying the 25 dvdr you got for £2.50 are a rip off considering you can get 25 cdr for £2.00
#26
Thanks, at 40p each for quality dual layers is a bargain. Ordered 2 packs and go 10p cashback through quidco, wow!!!
#27
Top deal.

Heat added.

Printable 8.5gb discs are usually way more expensive than this (I usually get Verbatim in 10 packs) but I've had some nice Maxell single layer discs in the past so I'll give these a go.

Cheers.

I never use mine for Xbox (don't you have to mess with the disc drive....'flash it'? and risk being booted off of XBL?) I use mine for backing up those big high def .mkv , .wmv & .avc files.
All perfectly legal & above board, of course.
#28
Reading that report, console reliability seems poor. I'll wait until people actually buy these from PLay and test them in their 360's...

I find that the people who buy DL discs kinda know what they are doing and the reason why they need extra capacity and so wouldn't buy them 'by accident' as they are indeed more expensive.

Still makes it a pointless comment tho :whistling:

:-D Oh dear.

FWIW my dvd writer (a Pioneer) only likes Verbs when it comes to DL, anyone know if there's any settings I could tweak? Wont even burn them, never mind give me a bad burn that just doesn't work in my 360......
#33
some pioneers arnt build to good i have found,the 111d,112d,were great but died after about 4 months and a dvd drive normally lasts me about 7 months,what model of pioneer u got??
the 116bdk is the one i have at moment and its still going stong at 7 months.

burning a dual layer kills the drive due to it having to increase the laser power to write the 2nd layer,i use 2 drives,
1 that burns single dvds,cds and i use to read anything i run.
the dual layer writer is purely for that,xbox games
#34
Seemed a good price and was just about to order a couple of spindles until I checked pricing for DL discs from likes of Big Pockets and SVP where you can pick up non-printable Datawrite 25-spindle for £7.99.

SVP have free shipping until the end of today to promote their new website. :)

Pioneer 111 I believe, but I could be wrong. Lasted me a couple of years and I use it a lot. Noticed someone mention the Aones were ok at 4x, maybe thats where Im going wrong, I always do 360 games at 2.4x, maybe I should experiment with speeds a little......Be surprised if the issues are because I'm burning at too SLOW a speed though, but you never know. I might just need a new writer, just seems odd it works on everything else except non Verb DL discs.

Link please, cause I cannot seem to find it. Incorrect information, plus shipping comes down to 11.48 cold for you from me.

How the **** do I give you negative rep:x
#37
haha i'm beggining to think this site is primarily used by people to abuse each other!

This price is a rip-off when you think about it, dual layer shmool layer, if a 1tb hdd cost £100 and the same drive but 2tb cost £400, would you say that is fair?

As I said, its only worth it if you NEED dual layer, otherwise don't buy them.

I'm afraid i'm out of the office now, but will reply to the haters on my return :)

Why would want to give the guy negative rep for when he was trying to help? :roll:

Your comparison is as valid as saying these are expensive as you can buy 25 cd's cheaper.

People buy DL for a reason you know.........
