They are rated as 2nd class media. Fine for data etc. no good for movies, at least not reliable enough for movies, but a good buy for what they are.
#6
fine for movies, but not good enough for data - if data is important enough to be backed up onto disc then it's gonna be more important than movies.
#7
Finally have come back down in price. Good discs, have used a fair few with no problems.

Don't know about longevity though, but Ricoh is a respected brand.

By who? I hope you are not getting your information from digitalfaq's media guide because they rate ritek as 2nd class and ritek haven't been 2nd class for several years. Ritek would be lucky to be 3rd class nowadays.

PS2's will play both + and - media.

Most blank DVD media is produced by a relative small number of factories, located in several different places. These factories are present in Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Mexico, Hong Kong, India, and Ireland... maybe a few more, but not many. The best media generally comes from Japan and Singapore. The worst typically comes from Taiwan (in stores) and Hong Kong (online).

The media brands means nothing. Apple is a great brand, but they do not make their own discs, instead outsourcing to MXL (Hitachi/Maxell), MCC (Mitsubishi Chemicals), and PVC (Pioneer). Verbatim became infamous by switching from high-quality MCC to ultra-cheap CMC (CMC Magnetics) media, although they have since returned to using MCC. Companies like Memorex, Fuji and Imation all outsource to media vendors.

Always be aware of fake media too. Fake media is normally sold in flea markets, on eBay and online. This fake media normally has no brand markings and the company being faked normally only sells branded discs.

It is the Media ID that is important, as it reveals the disc maker.


Media ID Quality Guide

The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list. The discs at the bottom of the list are suitable only for a landfill. PVC is the best of all, LONGTEN is the worst of all, etc. Note: Some codes may be listed twice, done because a -R, -RW, +RW and +R by the same company may not be the same quality. The format is listed because of this.

1ST CLASS MEDIA
Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
TAIYOYUDEN, YUDEN, TYG01, TYG02 = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)(+R) ... be aware of fakes
MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R)(-RW) ... be aware of fakes
MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)(-RW)(+R)(+RW)
TDKG02, TTG01 = TDK Corp = (-R)(-RW) ... be aware of fakes

2ND CLASS MEDIA
Decent discs, though not perfect, about 80-95% success rate:
PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (-R)(+R)
INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of fakes
RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)(+RW)
RITEK = Ritek = (+R)(-R)(-RW)(+RW)
OPTODISC = Optodisc = (-R)
FUJIFILM = Fuji = (-R)(+R)

3RD CLASS MEDIA
Quality can be very questionable, about 50-80% success rate:
LEADDATA, LD01, LD, LEDA = Lead Data = (-R)(-RW)
BEALL = Samsung BeAll = (-R)(+R)
MBI = Moser Beaur (India) = (-R)(+R)(+RW)
PRINCO, fake TDK = Princo = (-R)(-RW)
ONIDTECH = Unknown OEM = (-R)
MUST = Unknown OEM = (-R)
GSC001, GSC002 = Unknown OEM = (-R)(+R)

4TH CLASS MEDIA
Pathetic garbage media, landfill material, about 0-50% success rate:
RITEKG01, RITEKG02 = Ritek = (-R)
CMC, CMCMAG = CMC Magnetics = (+R)(-R)
PIODATA, PIO = LeadData, Ritek = (-R) ... once sold as "Pioneer" but that's false
Fake SONY, MXL = Fake Sony/Maxell from Hong Kong OEM (Infosmart?) = (-R)
OPTODISC = Optodisc = (+R)(+RW)
AN31, AN32, ANWELL, AN30 = Hong Kong OEM (Infosmart?) = (-R)
INFOSMART = Hong Kong OEM = (-R)(+R)
VANGUARD = Unknown OEM = (-R)
YIJHAN = Hong Kong OEM = (-R)
MATRIX = Hong Kong OEM = (-R)
VDSPMS = Unknown OEM = (-R)(+R)
LONGTEN = Hong Kong OEM = (-R)

ANYTHING ELSE = Unknown OEM or NEW
New medias to watch for: MXLRG03
Download this free utility that can tell you the media id to make sure the blank DVD you purchase is what you ordered.

1. Find and download the free version web. They keep changing the URL so we have to direct you to their web site and you need to browse around to find this. Otherwize, purchase the pro version. It's worth it..

2. Once installed, put a blank DVD in your DVD Writer/Burner click the "Media/Info" icon (top toolbar) to see something like the image below:

Are there exceptions to this list? Sure, but not many. LD01 inkjet media and RITEKG04 inkjet media has proven to be almost flawless media for many users. But those are the only two we've seen as consistent exceptions. Use this list as a guide. This list is a "sure bets" kind of list, and is pretty reflective of the media market as a whole.

What do the % numbers mean? This list is constructed from many tests on many burners from a handful of experienced people that use a lot of media. These numbers reflect the number of discs in a spindle that will give good results. For example, out of a 100 spindle of media, 1st class discs may kick out a few bad discs (0% to 5% of the media may have playback imperfections or be outright bad burns). The 2nd class media may have a dozen or so bad discs. The 3rd class discs could give you a half-spindle of duds. And the 4th class stuff can be pure trash. These are mean averages too, simple statistics math, meaning best tests and worst tests are discarded, and the middle range of tests is the basis for these numbers. You may sometimes find the rare instance where a CMC spindle will be perfect and a Taiyo Yuden spindle will be completely flawed, but those times are the exception rather than the rule (and are not part of a mean average).

Testing procedures: Burns are subject to playability/reflectivity tests (usage tests), as well as software verification. Test equipment is under controlled hardware/software environments to eliminate user variables. Burns are at least 4GB or more to test the entire length of the media.


Branding Guide

Although this will change on a regular basis, the following brands are known to use the following media makers for their outsourced discs.

Be careful for CMC and PRINCO discs, as those are becoming more common in those "special sales" seen almost every week since early 2004. Some companies prefer dollars over quality, so be careful. Also be especially careful of "house brands" or no-names. Stores like Fry's and CompUSA have horrible return policies too, so if you end up with an unfavorable media ID, do not burn a test, just take it back for a refund and take your business elsewhere.

Accu = LEADDATA
Americal = RITEKG01, PRINCO, LEADDATA
Apple = MXL, MCC
Arita = RITEKG03, RICOHJPN
Bulkpaq = PRINCO, PRODISC
CompUSA = PRINCO, OPTODISC, LD
Datawrite = PRINCO, PRODISC, AN31, RITEKG03
DupEZ = PIODATA, LEADDATA
Esbuy = RITEK, LEADDATA, other budget IDs
Fuji = TAIYOYUDEN, MCC, RICOHJPN, PRODISC, FUJIFILM
GQ = PIODATA, PRINCO, RITEKG03, RITEKG02, LEADDATA, LD
HP = CMC, RICOHJPN, MCC
Imation = RITEKG03, CMC
KHypermedia = CMC, TTG01
LiquidVideo = OPTODISC
Matrix = MATRIX, LONGTEN, YIJHAN, MUST
Maxell = MXL, RITEK, RICOHJPN, TYG01
Memorex = CMC, RICOHJPN, PRODISC, INFODISC
Meritline = Various budget IDs
Mirror = AN31, ONIDTECH, PRINCO
Optodisc = OPTODISC
Philips = CMC
Pioneer = PVC
Princo = PRINCO, Fake TDK
Prodisc = PRODISCS03, MCC
Ritek = RITEKG01-04, RICOHJPN
Samsung = TYG01, BEALL, RITEK
Sonic, Shop4tech = LONGTEN, MATRIX, MUST, YIJHAN, various budget IDs
Sony = SONYD04, RICOHJPN, MCC
Supermedia, Linkyo = Various budget IDs
TDK = TDK, RITEKG04, RICOHJPN, MXL, CMC, MCC
Verbatim = MCC, CMC, YUDEN, RICOHJPN, RITEKG03


There you go, if you had bothered to read the reports you would see Ritek is both 2nd and 4th class depending on the dye used.
Movies will not tolerate any defects whatsoever, unlike picture data, games and music. In adition the shelf life is poor.

fine for movies, but not good enough for data - if data is important enough to be backed up onto disc then it's gonna be more important than movies.

After unhappy experiences I now use WINRAR to pack all the data and movies and add 2% of recovery data irrespective of whether it is a good brand or not. Of course for a movie you can only play it when it is not packed with WINRAR. And I have settled down to using just TDK for important data but these Ricoh ones are excellent. I once read an intensive analysis report about it and extensive testing shows pretty low error rate.

Dude, i often burn videos on to dvd and cd's. All i do is open one of them after they have burned and if it opens up then the rest should be fine too and it should stay that way for whenever i access them again. What advantage would there be by packing it in winrar? Im not saying that your wrong, just that i dont understand. And what do you mean by 2% recovery data? If theres a way i can benefit or be better protected by, then i want in lol.

I use UseNext - you have to pay for the connection to their server.....£18 gets you around 65giggs but the stuff on their is totally virus free and downloads as fast as your broadband is capable of handling..... they also have the latest games and videos on there for you to "back-up" your collection with...... ;-) :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


Oh ive heard of them, they plaster over the net with their advertisements when ever you look for a torrent lol. I agree, they have almost a niche when it comes to games, but for everything else, it is readily available all over the net, as long as you have megashares or rapidshare. Do you want a megashares login btw?

Ive run out of rapidshare last night :w00t:

Please cancel your subscription to UseNeXt...NOW....

They are a info-hunt server used to send people to prison, whilst charging a ****-load for the privelage.

UseNet (notice the suspiciously similar name used by UseNext?) is the authentic server. This combined with AltBinz will get you every movie, game and application you could possible want for around £4 a month.

Another thing that mystifies me sometimes (i can be quite dim), what difference does it make whether a disk is plain or has the brand logo/information on its top? I know plain ones tend to be more dearer, but even if they have writing on top, you can just use your print kit to print cd labels. Ive done this to most my created cd's. What is the actual benefit of these blank top "printable" cd's?

I use Giganews as my newsgroup ISP and Grabit as a news reader and for searching.

Giganews is about a £6.50 a month for 25GB and Grabit is a couple of quid.

Use newshosting.com $14.95 which is £7.50 package 80 days retention UNLIMITED . It says 8 connections I get 30 on the same price and download at 2.4 on 20gb broadband. Use newzbin pro 5.35 as grabber $19.99 and newzbin v3 as the finder about £1 a month all in all very cheap....

I think Giganews probably has the best retention at 200 days and has 99% completition. I don't need unlimited, so a top notch service at a decent price is fine for me.

I think it's how long a newsgroup provider like Giganews keeps binaries live and available to download. The general rule of thumb is the longer the retention the better.
