I bought a spindle of 25 and used 4. The first disk gave a write error on 80% during the burn proces. I was able to burn disk 2,3 and 4 at 100%, but playback became bumpy at the last half part of the disks. At 60%-70% de playback stops.

The rest of the 25 I leave alone and return to the store. This is pure <beep>!

Works great with Sony DRU, But NEC ND-1300A makes coasters. Media quality is good, but NEC just can't burn it correctly every time. Maybe patched firmwares from http://herrie.rpc1.org will help. NEC burns correctly only well known brands.

Media burns nicely at 4x. Burned media cannot be read by all PC DVD players.

Sufficient for file storage and back-up, not recommended for DVD play-back. Movies tend to get choppy near the end of the discs.

Comments posted by Mick Steele from Other, August 16, 2003:
I have burned two spindles of 25 of these all at x4 and out of the 50 only two were coasters. An acceptable rate to me at an average of 79 pence per disc!

The first two discs I tried were coasters with Nero (5.5.15b) that came with my drive and Nero upgrades (5.5.28) but after changing to RecordNow Max everything is working as it should.

I have NOT found a computer or standalone DVD machine that they would not play perfectly in.

Comments posted by umeboshi from Other, July 25, 2003:
This media is highly incompatible with A04 and should never be recommended. All of my burned media (10 so far) have difficulties accessing the burned files and usually end up with a CRC failure after 30min. Tried with firmware version 1.30, 1.31, 1.33, 1.40, 1.41 in single or double speed. My A04 is working fine with other media from a different manufacturer.

Couldn't get these to work at all, with any burning program I had used. Eventually got them to work with Nero 5590 upwards,if restricted to single speed. Interesting that Bigpockets are bundling Pioneer 105, their new 4x disks and Nero. Don't think I'll buy any more of these either. Thanks to asok for confirming that these disks do work on 104.

Did not get a single disc to work, going to keep the remaining few for data use only. I would not recommend this disc for DVD use unless you know it to work on your player or can get hold of a blank to try.

No errors writing the discs, just playing them back.

Tried all speed settings, different software, 3 DVD players(Sony ??, JVC XV-S42 and Wharfedale M5) with no luck.
