CMC MAG DVD+R DL still readable after 7 years!

Recommended Posts

Discovered I had a CMC MAG DVD+R DL that somehow managed to slip past my eagle eyes into my collection.  I burned this disc over 7 years ago and when I came across it today and discovered it was a CMC MAG, I started reading it to an image to try and salvage it to a Verbatim DVD+R DL.  Not expecting any results, I was rather surprised when the disc read to an image file without errors!  :o

 

 

And, yet, Office Depot Ritek DVD+R DL were 50% hit or miss in being able to be readable after 7 years.  All of my TDK Ritek DVD+R DL were still readable.

Found a 2nd CMC MAG DVD+R DL in my collection.  It, too, read without errors to an image file.  I never would have guessed a CMC MAG DVD+R DL would be better than a Ritek one made by Office Depot.  Ritek used to make Office Depot DVD-R's years ago that were still readable 8 or 9 years after burning.  Yet, the Office Depot DVD+R DL's were half failures.
