This does not work well in a Sony DRU500a. Most crash after the first few minutes into a Video DVD burn. Write error. Same every time. Tested the drive on other media using drive test program.

A followup to my September 18, 2003 posting. I tried burning a movie at 1x speed and it failed to burn. I concur that this brand of disc sucks for movie backup. I would not want to give it a chance for data backup if they are this unreliable. Other media brands I've tried work a lot better than this one.

I bought a 10 discs that came packaged in a 'dual slim case' packaging. This means there are 10 discs, but only 5 slim jewel cases, thus 2 discs are held in each of the slim jewel cases.

These discs suck for burning. Of the 6 discs I've tried to burn (DVD-Video) 5 have resulted in being coasters. I've been burning at 2x, so maybe I'll try to burn the rest at 1x and see if it makes any improvment. Note that most of the failed burns happened less than 2 minutes into the burning cycle (quite early).

DO NOT under any circumstance by this media, no matter WHAT the price. Just by some cheap media from meritline or ANYONE...(usually much cheaper anyway!)

These discs are iffy at best. I have burned 4 without a problem at 4X but the next 3 failed to burn. I believe the problem is poor quality in the calibration area.

SAme code as the others. Burned fine at 1x up to 4.09gb on my test disk so I purchased 20 more on sale. Anything around or over that number will lock up or start stuttering badly. I had high hopes with them being CMC media. (which is a brand Pioneer suggest for the DVR-105) But stay away from the ones with this code. They are junk.

This is the absolute worst media I've used. I bought 2 10-packs and probably half of them were no good. They won't play properly on standalone DVD players and they don't read back into the computer very well either (even after Toast verified a good burn).

Quality of this media varies greatly from batch to batch . Some work at 2X , others at 1X , and some not at all . There is no way of telling which media you are buying . They all look the same . This is how it went for me . Two five packs in jewel cases burned at 2X perfect . One twenty five pack burned at 2X perfect . One ten pack one burned at 2X perfect , eight failed at 1X , still have one left . One twenty five pack that scanned at 1X so I took em' back . All from Office Max .

Too many coasters. In fact,when I checked, all my coasters have been this brand! 10 Pack from O-M seems worst. Individual packaged worked best (these were the first I bought, so I thought bulk packed would be as good.) Jury still out on 25 pack.

After all the mixed reviews that this media has gotten on this forum, I thought I'd try my luck... So I bought a 25pk at OfficeMax for $50.
On the first movie back-up, the DVD Decrypter stopped burning the image file created with ImgTool about half way. I didn't even try another one. Just took them back for a refund the next day!

Comments posted by Bryan Campbell from Other, April 03, 2003:
I was very afraid to try this out because of all the negative comments on here. I had to give it a try though because I am tired of spending so much for the media I normally use (verbatim). I bought a ten pack and the first one works. The only problem is that when it plays it will not bring up the chapter menu until I press stop, then the menu button on the remote. The color isn't quite as rich as the verbatim but I don't think most people would tell the difference (I am a bit of a perfectionist). In a cost comparason sense I would say they are worth the menu problem however I want to run through the 10 pack and see how many turn out to be coasters. That will determine whether I switch to this media. The silver tops are totally blank so I think they may be a bit different than some of the dvds that others have been using.

Media: Silver top with some wording and light dark pink on the bottom.
Purchased 10 from Micro Center @ 0.8 each (after $5 rebate)

Burned 5. 3 played back fine on my standalone JVC XV 501BK player. The other 2 had problem passing the 1 title. It took much longer to read the discs but eventually, it would play. I had to manually skip the 1st title on the one of the bad one then it would play OK. For the other bad disc, I had to wait for the player (can not even skip). Had not had time to finish the whole movie playback yet.

The same 2 bad DVD could not play back with WinDVD but played fine with CinemaCraft 2000

Not recommended. Spend a little more for Ritek media from Meritline would be a better choice.
