    So what did they add or what did they actually fix with this beta?

    The Branded DVD + r DL verbatim a very good also though I know you do not like the Branded ones. Though if you wanted to stack up and not make such a big deal about it for now they're aboutt 44 bucks. How much did those data life + DVD + r DL come out to?

    Well you know exactly where everything is as I do in my room etc... It could be alk over and I know what's what. For the money you might contemplate on getting Blanks you could get a decent printer for the datalife discs. They have different level ones for that. Actually it's very nice when done right.

    So the descriptive labels are on top, or are you referring to having to put them in a Drive and see what it is? You said stickies might throw them off, so I'm guessing in the data itself you have a descriptor?

    How do you file them?

    Right! Now you got it. The DVD+R DL branded are top shelf also. Anything different is for printing in the Datalife plus series or just printable surfaces as the shiny or matted silver. I presume you didn't get the thermal white, but the kinda matted white finish which is nice. You just have to write neatly on them or use a sticker etc... to identify it. The Datalifeplus you got are about $10- $13 more a spindle. The regular Life Series is the garbage. Who's making Sony? They are still more money and I see they still are rated good, especially their CD-R 80 minute discs. Using Power2Go I can now fit some DVDs and it's HD counterpart either on a DVD-5, or DVD-9. If I use ConvertXToDVD and want a nice quality DVD, the DVD-9 output will fit with its HD equivalent on a DVD+R DL, sometimes not depending the length and output codec/container. That's why I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on a 100 spindle of DVD+R DL. They're about $45.00 at Amazon. I can get 200 of the MCC branded DVD+R for that. Makes filing easier. Rigut now I have separate stashes of DVD and High-Def stuff.

    The verbatim branded DVD + R are good and their MCC. Now the data life plus only come in inject printable or those other surfaces, I haven't seen them in regular verbatim branded stuff if you know what I mean. So which one did you get did you get the white inkjet printable or did you get the data life plus shiny silver?

    Which ones did you get, the regular DVD+R good stuff of datalifeplus better stuff? Yes the verbatim store is still up, though with limited stock on their items there.

    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.
  11. dr_ml422

    TSSTcorp CDDVD SH-S202J SB03 won't read disc

    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?
  23. 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.

    Patience truly is a virtue!
