    @dbminter LG is a lost cause when you're trying to reason with them especially when they are wrong and they know it! Believe me when I brought up the issue about which This Thread is almost about, they plain flat out told me that they were not going to change their method of doing things, and that every burner from here on out was going to bitset to DVD-R. Just move on from them if you want an can. I did, and am most happy for it! I use them to mostly read as they are good readers in my experience, and my Liteon and PIODATA burners do the rest. I'm even buying a PIODATA Blu-ray burner as I now believe in them, and I'm also going to try out their Blu-ray discs. They don't offer DVD+R discs, just DVD-R, and I've grown to like +R. Just move on if you want and can.

    I'll have to see because right now we don't know how long the verbatim are going to stay good. I got these from Amazon. It's worth a shot atvl.

    No coaster! Looking great! I'll be using these and Verbatim, and eXtremePro which puts out a decent DVD+R DL.

    Hey guys, I just experienced something after converting one of my files to .mkv where it wouldn't play because of Hardware Digital Rights Management? Now how the heck did this happen since the original file was in .mp4 and played just fine with every player including VLC, MPC-HC, VSO, and even Movies&TV? Is Microsoft doing this in Windows 10 in the background? Believe me the original .mp4 plays just fine. It can't be a HEVC issue since all my other .mkv files that I converted play just right as well. Received a 50pk tub of AcePlus DVD+R DL 8x and must say they look very solid. Now to burn and post back results. Disc ID: RITEK-S04-66 per ImgBurn. I have to admit that I burned some discs earlier today with some Verbatims and ImgBurn for sure was the fastest and more efficient in Build Mode from another Disc in another drive. I'm not going to knock these AcePlus right off the back because of a MID. I'll burn then post back my take.

    Ok thanks. And verbatim BD-R correct? I'll hopefully get the DVD+R DL non-verbatim today. I'll post back my experience. Why does a 25GB Blu-ray disc advertise 135 minutes play? Is that how Blu-ray movies work? 25GB and only 135 minutes play time? Thanks.

    I hear you! Lol! I think I'm going to buy a Bluray drive and start using those as they seem to be more stable and not going anywhere any time soon. They also have a 50pk tub there that's regular stock Verbatim and not the Life Series. Fwiw, they're offering 5% discount for any first orders. Amazon has the regular 50 tub at $49.53 more or less right now.

    Correct @Ch3vr0n I'm glad you see it. Sometimes you have to dig online and get lucky. The ones I'm referring to here are in the box packaging, not the tubs, etc... Anyway, I just bought some off brand DVD+R DL to see how they fair. I'll post my findings after some burns. We have to be ready for either Verbatim going bad, or finding sonething decent we can at least work with.

    That is rather a low price for quality media, though you never know and at that price if they do pan out you win. Try to burn at half the speed of the suggested write speed so you can be sure of at least completing a burn, and ruling out coasters because of higher speeds and possible incompatibility issues with any of the burners. I'm probably going to check them out afterwards, as I still have almost a tub of 100 quality Verbatim DVD+R and 50 DVD+R DL. I'm soon going to see how much I can possibly get the Trisonic DVD-R as they sell wholesale at their store here in Queens. If I can get them for about $45.00 the 100, or even less if they say the limit is @500 give or take. I can see they are quality discs. Btw, online at a Office Depot, they have what looks like the Purple and White packaging DVD+R 10pk Verbs for $10.69. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&biw=1920&bih=1005&tbm=shop&sxsrf=ACYBGNQsWg9wOkD1__V3TWSlH8TcUYy2lg%3A1580205828717&ei=BAcwXuWvK8eMggeV_LS4Aw&q=verbatim+dvd%2Br&oq=verbatim+dvd%2Br&gs_l=psy-ab-sh.3..0l8j0i333k1l2.14068.26659.0.30260.14.11.0.3.3.0.97.919.11.11.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab-sh..0.14.925...0i67k1.0.UsQCpwkOZlw#spd=2570995532509078567 Disc id = MKM-003-00 for the DVD+R DL I last picked up at Amazon, so still lucky I guess with that.

    I was getting coasters as well with my DVD+R DL, and when I changed the speed to 4×, they stopped coasting. Those JVC are very good. I went with them after TY went to JVC. The Trisonics I told you about coded out to UME 2 this time. They seem to be quite good, though I need to see how much cheaper I can get them, as they were $2.99 for 2 discs. Someone will be putting out more than decent stuff if they want to continue to sell.

    They should, even if it's for 90 days or at least a year. Ever since they told me all their drives from here on out would automatically bitset, I just use my LG for opening up DVDs, CDs, and use my Liteon and PIODATA to burn. LG is my fastest reader, I wish they would have keft the bitsetting to the user.

    I'm asking if you ever used the professional series? Or just Data Life Plus? Verbatim has a very large collection of blanks. Every time I check I see a new one. I wouldn't put too much stake on VSO. I saw they tried to automatically charge me for a new year with ConvertXToVideo which I'm not reupping. I just reupped my ConvertXToDVD for one more year and hope they do whatever within that time frame. There's way too many free and better similar ConvertXToVideo software. DVD is another matter. I just have one other and it's pretty good too.

    Great! Let me know what you think about the Verbatim datalife professional series DVD blanks? Are these even better than the dataplus you usually use? Thanks. Happy New Year!!!

    Well then how do you explain over a year's worth of use w/out any issues? If it's not Windows, and before it was fine until not fine, then it just has to be something introduced since that time it was good. Is Dell replacing it?

    Ok. Windows 10 is what most wanted though now dread! More security. For some reason, and this may ir may nit be related, if Windows 10 thinks something doesn't belong to the main regular setup it will lo k you out. I figured out my issue was that Windows 10 denied me access to an external drive that was working just fine. Like I said it showed up in Manager but I couldn't access it. I had to go into the drive's property and apply SYSTEM, Administrator Rights, User rights,... and full control, then everything went back to normal. Now just at the end of transfering some files that same drive acted up again. Lucky I have those backed up. I'm done with external gadgets unless absolutely necessary. Right now I'm scouring that drive to see if I could save some time on some other stuff I didn't have backed. After that if I can get back 8n I'm going to format it and keep it out of the dock. If not straight to the garbage. I've had to apply rights to most of my apps because of this new Windows 10 security paranoia. There's only one user, only one admin, only one system operator, Me! So just in case make sure it's not something related because remember all was well leading up to that. If it is hardware related it would of showed up long time ago I presume, I think. If no then only you know what physically changed if anything. I would right click everything and apply full rights to everything by everything under your control. Now that would eliminate just about everything. These computers have a freaking mind of their own, especially with this new security. All over I'm reading about similar schizophrenic drives and Explorer . Now in my case it might just be a God problem because all my adult movies were in this drive? Go figure. Without my consent it was formatted! I still don't believe it. I went in and poof, 934GB of brand new space or w/e it is. I'm not going to lie and say that it didn't cross my mind that MS some how knew about my collection and deleted it because it did.

    I'm having more or less the same problem now and I don't have your computer. For some reason windows is not acknowlging one of my external drives when it shows up fine in Partition Wizard and Windows alone offers to format it? Something in Windows 10 not right. It's not the computer because all over people are reporting this. Now me. I'll figure this out.
