  1. Ugh DELL? Really? As i like to say it "Dell, F*cked up as hell". I upgraded my 10 month old rig 10 months ago with 3 parts. (2TB 970 evo, 9900k, Asus Maximus XI Formula). Those 3 parts alone set me back around $1500 :p

    Here's my current rig in it's current configuration

            Operating System
                Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
            CPU
                Intel Core i9 @ 3.60GHz    40 °C
                Kaby Lake 14nm Technology
            RAM
                16,0GB Corsair Dominator Platinum ROG
            Motherboard
                ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. ROG MAXIMUS XI FORMULA (LGA1151)    37 °C
            Graphics
                ASUS VG278HR (1920x1080@60Hz)
                ASUS VK278 (1920x1080@60Hz)
                4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (ASUStek Computer Inc)    54 °C

                9314GB Hitachi HGST HUH721010ALN600 (SATA )    41 °C
                3726GB Hitachi HGST HDS724040ALE640 (SATA )    47 °C
                476GB Samsung SSD 960 PRO 512GB (Unknown (SSD))
                1863GB Samsung SSD 970 EVO 2TB (Unknown (SSD))
            Optical Drives
                HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH16NS40
                HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH20NS10
                HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS30

    And all spindles opened, checked & verified against proper MID. Picked a random one from each spindel every time. MCC-004-00. so i'm sitting on 1k of the good stuff. Now to save up a little and grab me BD-R's (i have little use for DVD+R DL but i might snap some up too.)


  2. They're regular printers too, the cd functionality is "bonus". They just have a decidated collapsable tray, where you insert a small tray that holds the disc. That then gets pulled into the printer and printed directly on the disc.

    Check this link: https://www.canon.co.uk/printers/inkjet/pixma/pixma_ip7250/

    See that cutout with the "canon" brand on it. That tilts 90° outwards and exposes the opening where you insert the tray. It also has paper trays. A guide video here

    I use the inkjet printable surface discs in case I ever get such a printer, I can print labels to them

     

    They really arent that expensive. Take a look at the "Canon iP 7250" that's the one i use.

    Wanna see how i store mine? First i snap up artwork for the printable surface from customaniacs.org, then i put them in boxes and store them like this :p

  4. 400$ for 1k? Lol, I buy them online, they're €14,53/50. That's 290. Ordered them through a buddy of mine's business so that knocked another 21% off or because they come from another eu country (means no vat). Which knocked them down to 240.

     

    Mailed them if they can get the bd's too. The branded printable ones are relatively cheap, but if you want the really good stuff. Professional grade (datalife plus, printable, no ID, aka no verbatim marking on them) things become expensive.

  5. I should know in about a week if the ones I ordered are legit or not. I didn't know about the sale until I read about it on the redfox forums. I was down to my last 50 discs, so when I read that, didn't hesitate for a minute and ordered them. 2 months since the sale probably won't have stocks deplete and be replaced by cmc crap.

    When they pan out, I'm ordering more

  6. They're still in business because they sell a ton, just because you sell a lot doesn't make it good. Cmc crap is known to become unreadable after months or a few years, fail to verify immediate after a disc gets burned, playback of the disc flat out refused but standalone players,...

    My verbatim burns have none of that. I have movies I burned 10 years ago, still perfect picture from start to finish, playback refusal? I've yet to encounter a standalone player that refuses one.

    It's not just about how much you sell, it's also about how long your backups hold over time, the quality. If you need to redo the backup every year, because the disc fails to play, who's doing the financial winning here?

    Yes, because of the constant reburns, they'll sell a lot more discs. But the consumer loses on the long run because they have to buy new discs constantly.

    The quality of the real verbatim is more expensive than cmc crap, but for a reason. They're a lot better, and last longer too. That's what counts for me

  7. Well I just ordered 1k of the DVD+R, next up will then another 1k if they're the right MID a little later, and some printable bd-r's when the Bitcoin price goes up. So the little I have is worth more and I can snap up a couple hundred of those too

     

    That said, I'm on the fence on this one. I fully expect quality to drop and I'm prepping for it, but just maybe, now that they'll have the patents, technology, their crappy quality will increase and become the new verbatim (or remain if they keep the brand alive)

  8. It's true https://www.anandtech.com/show/14597/cmc-buys-verbatim-assets-from-mitsubishi

    Which is why tomorrow I'm ordering 1000 of the DVD+R SL tomorrow and I'll probably order 1k more a little while later. Should last me a while.

    I'm expecting quality to drop, but I'll hoping it'll be the other way. That by acquiring verbatim, cmc mag will finally increase their quality due to the IP from verbatim.

    I hate it just as much as you do

  9. Sounds to me your trying to make the iso on a drive that's formatted as FAT32. FAT32 has an inherited maximum file size of 4gb, this CANNOT be changed. If this is the case, you have 1 option, format the drive you're writing the image to as NTFS.

    That said, imgburn isn't really designed to make images of hard drives, there's specialized software for that like macrium reflect or acronis true image

  10. Not with imgburn. It only burns what you feed it. If you burn the mp4's you'll end up with a data disc with mp4's on it. If you want a DVD you'll first need something to convert the files to a valid DVD structure.
