what if you burned plain files and not a disk image (like iso),  does the MID disappear too?
anong itsura ng Ritek 8X DVD+R na yan.  iyan ba yung white printables or those with the blue surface?


Same effect. My first test burn was a bunch of jpeg files. The disk is light yellow with a dotted pattern forming an arrow.

I was able to come across this inexpensive media while I was on a business trip in Manila.  It came with a MID code unsupported by my burner.  Here's the quality scan of the first burn.

e-top DVD+R 8X

Media Code: EMDP0000
Physical Description: Red, only RW logo

Purchased at CD-R King Ayala MRT for Php12.00/DVD
Rated @8X, detected and burnt @4X using an LG GSA-4163B

Media test: No read errors.  SFV verification on data is OK.

Additional Test (K-Probe BLER Scan)


Test platforms:
    - Successful read on Lite-On SOHW-812S
    - Successful read on LG GSA-4163B
    - Successful read on Asus DVD-E616
    - Successful read on BenQ DW1620
    - Successful read on Samsung DVD-P248A DVD player

I just hope the burn quality on the remaining discs will remain consistent.

UPDATE: Burnt two more spindles of this disc and I have to say the burn quality is consistent :)  The label also claims it's an A-grade media.

you may check www.pcx.com.ph for updated  price list on pc hardware. Most pc enthusiast and overclockers would recommend liteon bro, di ako sales agent nito ha hehehe......... thats based from experience vs sony, samsung and asus drives. Your movie, divx, mp3, wmv.wma and ps2 backups will be read even if you used +R media both by branded and generic players. Be careful lang sa media to use, be sure to check reviews dito specific for audio and video purposes.

Im recommending Lite-on 16x dual drive. Check out reviews both local and US/UK. BTW liteon is the OEM for dell pcs and laptops, and other PC manufacturers. Close competitor is TEAC.

I'm quite satisfied with E-top.  Here's a sample scan of the media burned using my Benq 1620 @ 8x.

1. Media code: NANYA-CLX-000

2. Physical description: all white, minimalist design with the RW logo on the right side and the DVD logo at the bottom; "CD-R King" printed around the inner ring

3. Place of purchase: CD-R King Gilmore (the one nearer Aurora)

4. Price per piece: Php7.00

5. Claimed burn speed and the speed you burned at: claimed 8x; burned at 8x (8m 12s burn time including lead-in/lead-out).

6. DVDInfoPro media test for read errors - no read errors (DVDInfoPro, DVD Decrypter, Nero CD-DVD Speed)

7. Test platforms - tested on a Pio DV-270, Pio DV-383, and a Fukuda 881

8. Notes - Burned with a Pioneer A07XL branded drive with firmware updated to 1.22 (original version released 09/2005). The Nanya 8X +R disc is specifically listed as supported media.

Overall, the 8X Nanyas performed very well for me, but only after I upgraded the firmware. Before that, the A07 defaulted to a generic write strategy which resulted in problematic burns and disc verification issues.

Yeah, naubos na ata.  The most common "branded" DVD-Rs these days are Azul and Fortis.

Last week my brother in law from Canada gave me as a gift a boxed LG GSA-4167B.  I tried using several generic media; Fortis, Across, Melody and a branded one Verbatim Data Life Plus but all failed to burn my data.  The recorded message was "buffer too large" at the start of the burning.  What could be causing this? CD-R/RW writes flawlessly on this writer.

I know there are owners here of the 4167B drives, what medias have been used on them that wrote without problems so that I can try them myself.  Also, the DL12 Firmware update that I have downloaded on the net don't seem to work and is indicating immediately an error on the conversion/update.  Current firmware is DL10.  Can I skip the DL11 and go directly to DL12?

Thanks.

ALA EH!!

This is probably a hardware issue not on the drive itself but settings on PC and some drivers causing the errors as I've read it in several forums on the net.  I just thought that it was directly media quality that's why I posted it here.

Thanks.
