    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    This came at a bad time for me right now. I just came back from vacation and I just bought a new bed. So I have to see what I get into with this whether I decide to just use quality hard drives and forget about the discs, which I don't like because I do like to have the physical copy myself.

    Helluva business! So the consumer is responsible for CMC crap indirectly. Something went really wrong when $36 million cash buys out Verbatim.

    CMC will be making them though they could be using Mitsubishi formula and dyes so it's almost as if Mitsubishi is making them. the only thing that happens is that CMC quality control is not as rigid as verbatim. If you think about it there's no point in CMC buying anything from anyone unless they themselves are going to make a profit. So while they might not be 100% quality as verbatim they should be in the lower to mid-90s at least if they're going to give 36 million dollar cash to Mitsubishi to continue the process. CMC does have a bad rap, though that bad rap is filtered with a lot of bias. I never heard of any business that was in business to not have any business if that makes any sense. If it was trash all the time CMC would have been out of business a long long time ago. It's just like with jvc's rebranding of the taiyo yudens. They wouldn't of went ahead and made that acquisition if they themselves weren't going to make a profit. You shouldn't have any problem with the Blu-ray disc that's a whole different kind of Technology and there's really little room for total catastrophe there.

    Damn! I just read up on the whole thing! 32 million cash? That's cheap! They must of been losing money somehow. I mean with storage so cheap now discs are not a prime choice. Well, they should have Stock left over, so maybe snatching some now wouldn't be a bad idea. Well we could just hope they keep the manufacturing process the same. Thanks for this info.

    That and the email I received from one of the inside persons also describing how he has Financial issues at the moment is a lot of information right now. Dvdstyler which is a free open gnl software has a 64-bit version so I'm pretty sure he could put it together. it's not a different application they both more or less do the same thing. He was going through a divorce and probably taking him to the cleaners. They should of stayed on top of all this from the get go. What I liked about vso is that they brought out individual apps for everything that was needed at the time and didn't come out with an all-in-one solution as DVD Fab did. Those don't really work out that great all the time and you're constantly having to fix things up as opposed to having individual apps and already knowing what's going on specifically within each one. That's my input into that situation.

    Is it on their forum etc...? They're not doing anything with ConvertXtoVideo either. I wish them well. They're a stand up act compared to most vendors.

    I'm using the Video Disc Option on Power2Go 12 to create a DVD. Only way to encode .srt is to already have it embedded in the source. Nice and pretty quick too!

    You're correct. Everything to avoid blame! So what's new? I'm about finished condensing everything to HEVC. I see no need for discs unless I have some nice private collection, as the hard drives are sufficient for backup. I had an incident yesterday removing my lost cellphone from Amazon. First you have to go online. 2nd you have to choose what was actually using the phone, like Kindle etc... which is stupid because you should just have to delete the device and by default everything associated with it. It was so frustrating tstl. As the instructions never mentioned any of that. Also if you get an Amazon app phone, it doesn't use the Amazon store for updates, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever. So you don't know who's updating the Amazon app whether it's the Android Marketplace or whether it's Amazon and then they put it in the marketplace. Why waste time updating it and putting it in the Android Marketplace if people who use Amazon are right there already and can just swipe up any app and update it through your app store?

    They've been talking for a long time about getting rid of the Postal Service it's actually runs on losing money every year which I read somewhere or that the postal worker told me so. It's subsidized by the federal government somehow to keep it running also I heard I may be wrong. But then privatizing it out to UPS would make sense but they would have to take over the whole post office and I don't think those guys that are messing around with packages or maybe some of them might like it reducing the load to just throwing letters in the mailbox. Post office not to knock them has gotten a little bit better in recent years. Yes that's happened to me also with the bills and and other stuff I always check online on my phone for what I owe and what's due. Lost my backup cellphone on vacation. I'll be looking for another one. It's vital to me.

    Wow! So if you didn't say something forget it. Well that's pretty fast for BD-R. Amazon will try you believe me. They tried sending me stuff longer than my Prime Account states and I adamantly rejected that. I specifically said I was paying for a service. That was that. They're the best bet these days. I'm looking to use more of their services like Amazon Cloud etc...

    Those Sony DVD +- R were and if any still around, very good solid discs. Especially the 8x. You could actually feel the difference. so Sony won the format war & verbatim ends up winning the manufacturing war with their disc huh! Got to give it to Sony. They hung in there all the way with that Blu-ray when everybody else was either on the fence or against them.

    Was Sony ever a contender in the optical drive business at all? I remember they came out with their Sony drives and then they farmed them to Nec Optiarc if I'm not mistaken.

    Excuse the delay I've been pretty busy the last couple of days I took a trip down to the Caribbean for a few weeks for a little break. Anyway Pioneer must have fell off drastically because when I had my first pioneer which I think was the 112d it was excellent! Actually you could really feel how different it was from the other drives as it locked in the disc really well and it was very solid all the way through. So I guess they just fell off the map and like everything else they made they're just not doing it well anymore. They used to be the best plasma TVs out there at one time as well. They were the Pioneers as the name suggests for a lot of things. I think what they still make good might be some receivers or something like that along the audio line of things.

    Does this mean that if you have some important information that you wrote to the disc that it can possibly alter it by accident and thus pcause problems for whatever project you're doing at the time?
  15. dr_ml422

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    So it writes completely to the disc but it fails to verify it. Is that correct? Or does it just completely mess up the right and therefore it's not able to verify it.

    Yeah that Job story is really something else isn't it! I mean the only thing I got out of it was the virtue behind being patient. I don't I think you have to kill somebody's family or take away their land or do anything like that to see if they learn patience. Unless he's going to really really really make a difference somewhere somehow! I learned a long time ago that what you see is what you get and that's it. If you expect anything more from what you already see then you're in for a hell of a ride! So why waste time trying to make someone, something, someplace conform to any standard anyone may have.

    Yeah they're probably fixing it. I wonder how do those drives know what to do, with all the different manufacturers of discs, dye, etc...? They've come a long way.

    Did you send it back already for replacement? Or you was waiting to see if they would replace it? I forgot. If they have it already, then they're just figuring it'll get done and shipped as scheduled.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    What did I say? I told you there was something going on that just wasn't right! I think they just going to try to fix it up as much as possible and then just walk away at some point. Shame because I don't see why they would have to go that route as these programs are needed. Well not for anything but there is freeware out there that is almost as good or even better than their convert video software program, though their convert to DVD has been a staple for years and is about the only thing that they can really hold on to at this point. I have maybe two more DVD converters or three actually but the VSO has been the best one so far that really doesn't give you any problems. Maybe a divorce or something. Who knows. Thanks for the update.

    Well the old story of who came first the chicken or the egg or like in my culture it was neither! it was the rooster who came first and then the chicken and then all the eggs followed one by one! I'm going to suggest that you read a book that I will let you know soon enough as I don't have the title with me right now but then again I do it's by Victor Thorn. Just look him up and keep an open mind because like they say sometimes he who laughs last last laughs. Anyway I have a little PC suggestion or tip if you didn't already know it, when you go and cut and paste large files and you want them to go quickly to wherever you want them to go to, click on and cut, but don't do anything for about four seconds, let the drive work it into the the fetch or whatever it's called, and then go hit the paste wherever you want it, and it will all but almost automatically go there as it should according to the power of your drive and PC set-up. Almost instantaneously.

    I'm at the point where you mostly are that I virtually believe anything they tell me these days! Nothing is off limits nowadays! That is totally crazy on their part, and totally irresponsible and nuts on verbatim part! I thought you was going to stay with them, and I'm really glad that you didn't and decided to get your money back. It's a long way from 6 to 16 times on any kind of media! I upgraded my driver license today because by November 2020 you're not going to be able to fly anywhere with a regular license anymore. So I had to upgrade it to an enhanced driver's license and I decided to do so today. The guy asked me if I also wanted to re-up my regular license since it was going to expire in just about two years so I decided to do that also. The only thing that I didn't figure was the price, which even though I had it, and I was able to do it, was pretty steep at $93 and some change. At least I got to change my photo, I look like a madman on the other one. LOL! I'm doing some 10 bit MKV 1980p conversion, and I must really say, "What a difference"! Way better quality on the picture with AC3 stereo either as 2 or 5.1.

    The Devil's always working you know! Yeah, I just had 2 experiences where initially I got duped also, on the 2nd try everything worked out! Even with VidCoder, I initially got 45-50fps using H.265 Nvenc. I then turned off hardware acceleration in MPC-HC, and closed DVDFab which was open. I loaded up about 12 .MP4 1080p files and set them up. When I hit encode it was hitting 1100fps and 45 minutes to DTA. The results fine! So the trick I think is that when some apps are using the same source they won't use it all unless it's by itself. Wonder what VSO is up to? Tbh, I have very good alternatives to both of their proggies, except ConvertxtoDVD is still a go to for obvious reasons. I bought a y/splitter for my PSU which added 4 more sata power cables, and I inserted my external drive into my mobo. Now I'm getting 900mbs transfer! Sometimes it bottlenecks to 58mbs. I don't know why.

    Must of been a manufacturing glitch but you should let Verbatim know, even though they almost positively let the resellers know. No way they would gamble on a lawsuit, no matter how trivial.

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    it would be an accident if it said six times outside on the package or 16 x excuse me and then it turned out to be six times on the inside with the disc then that is not a mistake, especially twice now. Unless the discs are actually saying 16 times themselves and they're still writing to just six times or above then that's a whole other issue. So what exactly happening if I may ask? The wrapper or advertisement says 16x, and the discs 6x, or the discs say 16x and writing at 6x...? They know believe me, and they wouldn't take a chance purposely because there's middlemen involved.
