i never use them, when i had to clean lens of anything i would always take it apart and use lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol.
I have always been careful with the disc's i put in any drive i own, i always examine them for grease, fingerprints and clean them b4 inserting them into any hardware i have.

Was told years ago by engineer not to use CD cleaners (the disc kind as they are abrasive) in my at the time 450 quid multi changer Cd player and single player, maybe the CD cleaners now are more appropriate to use.


it also is verifying all images written and can read any disc iso i have at great speed. strange


busy wrting another of the verbs from US in liteon 1635s now


written/scanned on 1635s

Posted Image

Posted Image


then scanned on what seems to be a knackered or in need of cleaning 160p6s

Posted Image


These are the verbs from US, so they appear to be ok, though tbh the first pack of 20 i opened have scratches on them and seem to be not as well made as the /uk verbs i have, have not opened the other 2 packs of 20 yet


ANOTHER EDIT

Not sure what to think of this 1st packet of verbs now just wrote one in my brand new benq dw1670 then scanned it in liteon 1635s and it's terrible, cannot be all my writers/readers, unless of course my new benq hates, or rather the firmware is not very good for dual layer burning /2nd layer it falls apart 1st layer is stunning 99.10 % saying as the liteon 1635s was scanning fine before

An update the first pack of 20 us verbs are quite scratched seems to be due to damage of cake box tbh reminds me of my orders from ukdvdr.

Then benq dc dw 1670 is not very good at burning to these.

My liteon 160P6S which was when i got it a DRW-6S160P that i flashed to be a 160P6S BUT really it's a SONY DW-Q120A --- LOL (wish they would stop doing this)

anyway the drive writes to verbs fine just now cannot scan them as good as it should.

I have now started to not take the chance and burn using my liteon 1635s which used to be a philips spd 2400 :) and scanned them with same drive and it's a lot better


Scan below, disc wrote @4.1x and scanned with same writer a liteon 1635s firmware YSOZ

So these discs are fine apart from the 8-14 that are scratched

I will if I open the other 40 and they are the same, the packaging on the other 40 look ok, however the other 20 pack , the locks on cake box were smashed etc.

Scan was ok maybe take of 8% as that liteon drive does not do jitter so Quality score of 91% is good enough for me.

edit also seems to burn better on liteon 1635 if burnt at 4x ...the 2.4 burns are still into 97 98 % though

the infosmart ones are that bad you cannot even do that, they just stutter and lock up, when i bought em they were supposed to have a diff mid code, the first 100 i got were the other 500 were infosmart and by the time i realised, could not remember, find receipt of where wtf i ordered them from.

All i am keeping them for is, if ever the bailiffs come to my door so that i can drop them on their heads.

That was an exceptionally good buy, bought 6/20 cakeboxes of them. They also had 50 cakebox of the Verbs Sl on sale for 18$, bought 4 of those as well. Never know when a deal like that might come around again. :thumbup:

Good thing FutureShop gives rain checks! I got one for the DL's, also have a rain check for 100 16X Verbs for $19.99 each, only problem is my local store only has the Prodisc made Verbs in stock, so I may not use it. :/

I didn't know Grain had a 1650, I thought he had a 1655 like me :unsure: I know he has posted scans in the media section with the 1655 and BCIB firmware.
