Go to Tools/Settings/Write tab, untick 'Perform OPC Before Write' and click OK. Also try burning at 8x or 12x.

Can you get your hands on a couple of Taiyo Yuden / Verbatim discs to test with?

 

'AUTO' write speed is basically the same a 'MAX' until you actually configure the 'Automatic Write Speed' feature.

 

Read the 'Guides' forum.

unfortunately within the next few days i can't get Verbatim single layer, all i got is Verbatim +R DL (MKM001) and TDK+R scratchproof (TDK003)

ok, than i must try to burn exactly in 8x-12x, not auto, right?

burn process successfully completed at manually selected 8x speed, right now test the disc by dvdinfopro.

I always burned tdk on 4x, please tell, if you know, why now higher speed works and lower speed fails?

is the lower speed a bad choice if the media is a highspeed itself? (tdk is 16x)

and finally, after i untick 'Perform OPC Before Write', will it increase the risk of a bad burn?

thank you for your help and for the imgburn)

 

ps

ou, another question if you don't mind)

please tell, untick 'Perform OPC Before Write' in the menu and push Continue button on the OPC error warning window, is it mean the same result?

the fact is i burn a lot of DL and i think that will be better that OPC is enable for the DL.. am i right?

OPC is automatically performed by the burner, and that setting in ImgBurn now defaults to disabled because some burners don't like it. It doesn't affect the burning quality, since that's dependant on the burner/firmware/media combo.

can you please also answer about write speed?

 

-> I always burned tdk on 4x, please tell, if you know, why now higher speed works and lower speed fails?

Because drives and media change.

 

Manufacturers go for high speed, quality burning now and don't pay much (any?!) attention to people who want to burn 16x media at 1x.

 

8x and 12x seem to be the most reliable. They're not too fast and not too slow.

 

I'd still ditch the TDK in favour of Verbatim / Taiyo Yuden if I were you.

thank you for your answer)

in fact tdk was likely for me for their scratchproof coat..

please tell me just two more things, if i don't bother you yet)

 

in my experience, VERBATIM DVD+R DL in bulk 10 pack, is the best choice (besides, what's better, discs made in Singapore (MKM 003) or discs made in India? (MKM 001) both are the 1st class media..)

and that "best choice" look like on this picture

129380_L.jpg

 

and how does a bulk (or bulks, if there more then one brands of media who sales TY under their own name) of real Taiyo Yuden look like?

and what is the right country of manufacturing for the media?

thank you)

the better ones are the ones made in Singapore , 2.4 speed with MKM-001. (NOT as you wrote it above with indian mkm 001's)

just now, after your post, open 2 new bulks, one Singapore, another India

DVDInfoPro again shows that Singapore is MKM 003 and India is MKM 001..

ps

sorry, forget that India is 2,4x and Singapore is 8x

 

so..exist two versions of MKM 001, one Singapore and another India?

Yes, and the ones Made in India are inferior quality compared to the ones Made in Singapore.

only 2,4 speed made in Singapore, not 8x?

and how does a bulk of real Taiyo Yuden look like?

 

ps

in Moscow there is no Taiyo Yuden in mediamarket((

so the second request is how does a bulk of Verbatim (Taiyo Yuden) look like?

maybe i've been lucky in search of that discs)

thank you)

I believe both 2.4x and 8x discs are available from both Singapore and India.

 

The Taiyo Yuden I get (8x DVD-R with TYG02 dye) don't have any branding on them so to speak. They come in a clear spindle tub with just a top sheet of paper (on top of the first disc) that says what they are. It's just a plain white sheet with some writing on it.

only 2,4 speed made in Singapore, not 8x?

 

i mean does the 2,4 speed the best one? is the 8x worse? (also made in Singapore, but MKM 003)

 

ps

as i said before there is no TY discs in Moscow ((

could you please advise the concrete Verbatim media (single layer +R) that better then TDK, in your opinion

All the verbatim SL media will either be the MCC or TY dyes. Just get any of them that you can!

 

I'd probably go for their DVD+R over DVD-R. So they'll be MCC-003 (8x) or MCC-004 (16x) or YUDEN000-T02 (8x) or YUDEN000-T03 (16x)

 

For the DL media, burners seem to prefer the 2.4x ones - especially if it isn't a brand new drive. The 2.4x ones have been around for a lot longer and so have better firmware support.

Do not get the ones made in India. The others (made in Singapore/Japan/Taiwan) are fine.
