    Has anyone tried these TuffDisc Scratch Resistant 8x DVD-R, They are quite cheap at my local Disc suppliers £20.00 for 100

    The dye is advertised as CMC.MAR.AE1

    looking forward to your comments

    TIA

    Nope,I make it a point to stay away from CMC MAG.
    I read your link, and it sounds to me like, you'll have scratch resistant crap.JMO
    But go ahead and give it a try,then you can come back and say... you were wrong Jim,this is great stuff.

    Ok Ok.. So TuffDisc are crap.

    How about the Datawrite Titanium Silver 8X DVD-R £10 for 50 disks. These have the MCC dye.

    Will Do.

    I must admit, I have used Datawrite yellow (V2's) -R before and only got 1 coaster from the 25 pack. I'm sure that disk was a failure because it was a test disk run through Nero DVD speed previously which meant that it was a failed disk from the start.

    i have just received some datawrite titaniums from ukdvdr and i dont think they are MCC,

    CMC MAG AE1 , they are now being sold in 50packs and now have "TITANIUM" printed on the disk,

    the first few in the pack look a bit flawed and unusable but further down they seem ok, i will post again with marks out of 10 as i have bought a lot!

    as for tuff disk, i would steer clear of them, i bought a 100pk and most are unusable, they had TDK identifier codes but were overprints and very shoddy, i dont think i found one that wasnt marked in some way!

    Further to my datawrite post i have had a few problems with the titanium 50 packs! out of 200 i think i may have used 100 but the other 2 spindles must be something wrong with them

    if i use them they seem to either error out
    (alcohol error message - write error lba 9 etc) or just dont work at all and lock up my computer!

    i noticed that someone has posted someting similar on videohelp.com media section, anyone had this problem, i bought them from UKDVDR anout 1 month ago,

    i dont seem to have much luck with ukdvdr at the mo, first bought the tuffdisk crap and now this, anyone uk has this problem, methinks i will change supplier for the time being!

    Hi All,
    I actually use the memorex DVD+R media 8x write. I have used 60 disks and i have had absolutely no problem. The play excellent and the quality is brillent. They have written perfectly every time. I bought a 10 pack to try them out and they worked so well i went away and bought a 50 pack. No problems with any of them so i bought another 50 pack. I will update you if i have any problems with them.

    Tim,

    Like it was just mentioned above, the brand "Memorex" means nothing, since it can be made by just about anyone. What is the media identified code of the discs you have bought?

    Don't know, I am at work so i will check when i get home and i will let you know as soon as possible. I am a newbie at this so i don't mean to step on anyone's toes. I would also like to say that this is the best site. It has helped me alot with my Backups, media and software choices. I will also check the inktype that was stated and let you know.

    Hi cd-rw.org, I have checked the disks and the ink is that crap one that everyone has been talking about. I have not had a problem as of yet but i think i will take your advice and change just as soon as i use up the ones that i have. I have heard alot about Verbatrim. i think that is the name. They are just after getting them in the shop by where i live and i was wondering if they are worth buying. Sorry it took so long for me to reply but i was away for the weekend.
