Hello Rob!


#4453
DVD is the past :p Hello guys! :) Fact is, I have multiple BR scans I've been meaning to post. Needless to say, LTH discs are something I won't be trusting for a while. Possibly never. I'm concerned about longevity.



To delete, or not to delete. THAT is the question!

Hey Ripper how's it going long time no chat.
So I should stay clear of the LTH media when I get the chance to get back into the BR world.lol I got this nice BR burner and only have about 8 burns on it. Lmao
#4455
I slapped a 3yr warranty on mine :p One of them anyhow. Seems a lot more solid than the last two I bought. Thankfully!

Has been a while. Not bad here thanks, how've you been?

I haven't burned a DVD in a while, think I'm still sad on some YUDEN003s or whatever they are from way back when.

Rob,

Hey there. It's good I dropped by, glad to see you again! I'm still here, getting ready to start another build on Sunday. #519, to be exact.

Best Regards,
Russ

I thought this thread was dead. Hello to the ole timers-Ripper especially since he made Addict the day before me. Also good tidings to the rest of you.

I haven't made too many burns lately because the movies have been awful. I haven't bought any lately either. I had too many. Mainly using Taiyos +RTO-2s and 3s. no problems. Still no BR ones. Recently I copied the second disc I ever burned without a hiccup.-a mag at that Greensman. I did think I was in need of help for Cabin in The Woods but managed somehow-still asking myself why after I watched it.

The other big thing in my life is that I have finally retired. All the days are the same now with nothing I have to do anymore. I'm in Heaven. 45 years cutting on teeth. Long time.
#4460
I obviously posted far too often then eh G!

That sounds good to me, enjoy your retirement. I'm going to have to get a proper job in a few years - ah, the student life!


#4461
Ripper, I remember when- enjoy immensely- I did! The job thingy comes all too fast and lasts almost forever. Is Janrocks still alive? Anyone?
#4462
Haha, yes I'm sure. I will, thanks.

Janrocks is just about still here; posts under 'ps355528' now if you want to get in touch!

Here's a scan of a DVD+R DL. Verbatim 2.4X MIS if I'm not mistaken. Burned it at 4X via NEC Optiarc 7200S. One of my favorite drives :D

A player locked up while playing it. And yet, it's one of the best scans I've seen of this disc type! I'm guessing the player had an issue. Because the scanning drive, was able to play through the supposed area, where there was a problem. Ah well, have to reburn it anyway, because something else was screwed up LOL!
I'm used to these looking a bit rough on one of the layers :S

i havent been in the DVD burning game for some time now with changing work scedules and life going on around me. its kinda hard to find some good media now days. well what im used to anyways. cant find any good TY's or MCC004 verbs. just alot of MCMMAG stuff....
heck its been years since ive bought a new burner..well other than my blu ray burner that ive only burnt 12 disc on..lol
#4466
Still running my same burners. Die hards. Though BD burner #1 can't be trusted to burn, it still reads 99% of them without stutter. My optiarcs are still going :S I'm thinking they don't know how to die.

Supermediastore carries my media. JVC/TY are still excellent media for dvds. And I use "That's"(TY) found on ebay. I've heard panasonic makes good BD media too.

Hope you have a happy new year Rob ;)

looked at supermediastore..wow they are expensive..at least i think.
i did find these at meritline

http://www.meritline.com/taiyo-yuden-8x...---p-18444.aspx

got a few gift cards i mught have to buy some media..lol
#4468
I've gone through meritline. Not for media however. I generally stick to newegg, and SMS.
Some of their media is expensive. I usually wait for a sale, or coupon code ;)

Hello all, long time no talky!

I don't do much burning anymore myself, only for those dvd isos that won't play oorrectly by my media players out of my network storage.

I always preview movies in dvd format to see if I really like it before commiting to bluray, then I buy. Otherwise (normally) it is rip - view - delete.


#4470
Mmm, I'm more of a HDD storage/backup kind of guy myself. The only DVD's I've burned lately, were picture discs for family.

Blu-rays take up quite a bit of space. Especially 3DBD's. Though that may be remedied soon. But even 15TB, only goes so far :S

#4471
Best storage for bluray is on pressed bluray discs, hands-down.

I only have 6TB permanent storage but with an additional 9TB addable/swapable.


#4472
Burned this with my wonderful 7200S @8X. I expected it to be a bit worse. Though I suppose the jitter is high. This iHES drive is not the best for reading though. But, it was convenient :p Verbatim Life series.
