Here's a couple of new scans, 1 DVD+R TY & 1 DVD+R DL Verb.

I'm finding out that these Verb DLs burn better @ 4X vs 2.4x.

some nice looking scans there greensman..but the one you said is the MCC 02RG20, the scan says its a TY...lol

kinda odd with the LH-18A1P since these last 2 FW updates i havent gotten a 98 score. granted om able to burn all disc now. but no 98's lol
#30
Yeh I haven't gotten a 98 yet either but the burning seems to be going better with the new update. :)

I've been real impressed with the low PIE's on some of this media, especially the MCC 003. You getting the same results cincyrob??

Didn't get the DL burn last night but gonna try tonight I think. I've never done one so it's about time. :P

@greensman,

If those DLs are anything other than Verbs, I'd recommend not burning faster than 2.4x!

It'll be interesting to see how your burners handle the layer break (and if your jitter scan can get past it also!)

Have pretty much given up on lowering jitter on my Liteys. Tried a slower burn (had read to burn slower to reduce) with no improvement. ;(

@All,

98s???? I can't remember ever getting a scan higher than a 95(except on my Benq)!

yes i agree the pie's and pif's are lower..plus ive noticed. maybe just be me but when i burn on the fly my pie's&pif's are lower to. when i rip to my hdd and burn from there they seem to be twice as many PIE's
#33
Had to add these for the people that know and don't know. :)

MCC 02RG20 recorded with MTK 1818 at 8X.
scan of MCC 02RG20

CMC MAG M01 recorded with same drive at 8X
scan of CMC MAG

NOW if you people that defend CMC MAG media can't tell the difference between these 2 discs then keep using that crap!!!! I did the same thing on both media and didn't touch the computer when it was burning. :D

I bet those CMC mags aren't too bad if you keep your size under 3700. ;-)

shucky darns im at work and cant see them scans...gotta get around these blocks...lol

burnt at 12x huh??? new 20x sata drive give ya the big kahuna's...lol
#37
Already had BIG Kahuna's....lol. I've been experimenting with the faster burns and I'm not getting that different of burns to tell you the truth. Comparing 8X to 12X burns on certain media. I've done a few 8X discs at 12X and they come out alright. LOL. I even tried a 8X disc at 16X and it went to about 12.5X and then backed down to 6X for a finish. Scanned the disc and it came out OK with a 93 score and PIE's not to bad. If I can find the scan I'll post it. :)

I'll see what I can do about getting you the scans since you are hog-tied. hehehe.

@gm, so it's a REALLY big deal when your wife busts them???....lol :D

Here's a couple of new ones, a 4x burned Verb DL & 2 Yuden 03, 1 off my external Litey & 1 from my internal one.

http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s102/...hx12xburnTY.png

http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s102/...1h12xBurnTY.png

I'm finding the Verb DLs are burning better @ 4x vs. 2.4x. Maybe one of these days I'll give it a shot @ 6x.

The 16x TYs burn best for me @ 12x, a better "sweet spot" then @ 8x. Have also tried them @ 14x, 16x, 18x & 20x. Still get decent results but 12x is the best.


#39
nice scans there guys... think i gotta break down and get me some DL verbs +r's of course...lol

i think the 20x Scan looks better than the 18x Greensman...

here is a scan i did this morning useing nero to convert PAL to NTSC then used clonedvd2 to burn with..used a 16x+r Verb

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i196/Cincrob/o13.png

@cmunguia

well i cant really say welcome to AD seeing you have been here since 2005..lol NEWBIE????

so welcome to the scan thread..lol

as you can see those CMC Mags arent to reliable over the years
but the MCC004 looks pretty good... you said you burnt it at 4x. id say if you doubled that and burnd it at 8x's you will see even better results i love those 16x verbs and i dont burn them any slower than 8x.

ill have a scan or 2 later to post.gotta get the wife a B-Day present. tomorrow is her b-day

Bring 'em on buddy. ;)

Tell the little lady....Happy B-day!!! Watcha gonna get her?? Money always works well. hehehe. Day at the Spa is nice. Gift card to her favorite store works too. OH and the best for last. hahaha. A gift card to NewEgg.com and tell her that you will spend her money wisely. Mwuaahahahahahah!!! LOL.

Nice scans btw........to stay on topic!!

cmunguia,
Welcome to the scan thread and like cincyrob said....CMC MAG may not be the media of choice. I will say that there are a couple of CMC MAG MID's that perform OK BUT as a general rule the media is LOW GRADE and not time worthy. MOST I can say without being truly ugly about it. LOL.

SOME scans for perusal........... :)

MCC 003 L@@K at the PIE's....... ;)

TYG03 burned on the Pioneer

TYG02 burned on the LH-20A1S

I think the 8X scan is good enough. Most of the scans that I do are 8X and another forum I visit recommends that speed so everyone is on the same page. There's arguments for both ways but normally the higher speed scans "show" more errors than the lower speed. I haven't read enough to be truly educational about the whole thing but that's what I remember. :)

For experimentation you might try scanning the same disc at 1X, 4X, 8X, 12X, and 16X just for giggles. It will take some time but it'll give you an idea of what performs/works the best. :)

sorry for the long post/answer......... :D

@greensman

MCC 004 with DRU-830a

Sweet scans all, especially those low PIEs greensman!

Here's a couple I've done lately:

a 2.4x Verb DL I attempted to burn @ 6x. Looks like my Litey will only take these to 4x, even with overspeed! Meritline states this about these: Verbatim (95123) 2.4X (UP TO 6X) DL DVD+R (Double Layer DVD+R) White Inkjet Printable Blank Media 8.5GB on Spindle. Does anyone know of any burners which can?

http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s102/...h6xVerbburn.png

and here's something I didn't realize I had, some CMC Mags!! I saw this partial cake box of hub printables on the bottom and checked them out. They were Memorex which coded out as CMC Mags. I decided to burn one for chuckles & grins, here's the scan:

(edited to correct the Verb identification)

@Playr,

My Liteys didn't like the TY 02s either. Had much better luck with the 03s.

@All

Meritline has a special on Verbs through tomorrow (the 12th). The main thing that caught my eye was they have Verb 2.4x DLs on sale for $38.99 a 20 pk shipped, thats $1.95 ea. Thats about a 30% discount. They must be getting ready for the new, higher speed DLs.
Edited to correct what's being advertised.
