100% BAD burns at 4x, only works at 2x (most but not even all of the time), both with native Mac OS Backup or with Toast 7 application.
About the 1-year warranty: only worth trying if you kept your purchase receipt. If you started using after 1 year, or if you didn't save your receipt for this junk, then you're out of whatever you spent to buy it!

Check your old media CMC MAG.AF1!!!
burning with lg gsa4040b ever OK.
After burning all OK. But after about 0.5 years many
reading errors and sometimes not recognizable even
at burner! and other DVD-ROM. Tryed to restore with
restoring tool isobuster, sometimes outputing many failures. I will never buy memorex!

burnt though my whole spindle, only 1 coaster due to media failure (several due to stupidity). the one coaster, interestingly, had blotches on the recording surface after it was burnt where apparently no data had been burend into the dye. weird.

with GSA-4040b, these discs would only burn at 2x until I updated my firmware to A303. I think I had A301 before.

Great media. I haven't had a bad one yet in over 100 burns. And the discs have played fine with no skips in many DVD players. I used some KHypdermedias that were CMC MAG. AF1 as well but they didn't play in some players while these did so I'm not quite sure what's going on there.

Aparently CMC made some bad batches of memorex. I used a BTC 1008 like some other reviewer but his were all good and 90 of 100 were bad on mine. This is the only time memorex has not been reliable for me. I have never had DVDs this bad before. I have burned about 1500 discs.

Media purchased 4/28 Officemax. Comes in blue colored box with "5PK" in red on top right of box - manufacturer code on bottom left of reverse 5395 5994R; Part Number 3202 5575; (c)2003. Frequently on offer for $9.99 sale price.

Media burned fine until the last 15 minutes when Nero DVD-Speed showed major flaws in the media; visual inspection of recorded program showed severe pixel, audio problems and freezing during playback of this portion. Flaw was consistent across samples drawn from three individual boxes purchased at different store locations. Media not acceptable, particularly for what is often considered "premium" media found in jewel cases.

This is apparently a new run of CMC AF1 media because its media code was not apparent here. It's no improvement.

Officemax will cheerfully refund 100% of your money on incompatible media.

Good burning reliability and good compatability with stand-alone players. This media is easily confused with it's evil cousin with media ID MBI 01RG20 that looks exactly the same. DVD-R:s with that ID, however, sucks big time and should be avoided at all cost.

I have been using this media to burn a DVD production I made from video and sill footage for a charity. The chairity has distributed over 100 of these dvd at fund raisers. So it has been played on several brands of DVD players and computers. I have noticed that it plays good to better on may set top dvd players. However, it has a poor track recored running on Laptop DVD-ROM/DVD-RAM/DVD+-R/RW drives. Tosiba drives seem to be the worst and I have found documents from Toshiba stating not to use memorex media on thier dvd drives. I have no problem burning or playing on set top plays though after burning over 200 I have had a few disk that have had problems when burned to capacity. I accounted to flawed media, for it is very few.

When burning this media in the recently released Sony DRU-530 with firmware 2.0a, at 2x or 4x it produces skipping at the end of the movies when burnt close to full capacity. It the total size of the file is less than 4GB the burns are flawless, however this is a very limiting factor and I would not recommend this media.

I did have issues with butning them in DVD Shrink which uses Nero Recode (only 1X), but I believe that to be a software issue. It worked on all of the other software packages at 4X

I got this data after having good results with memorex CD-Rs and DVD-RWs. Burns went without error during burn process .. however the disks are horrible to play. In my Panasonic DVD-R31 at the TV and my MEMOREX Dual-X DVD player on my computer the media had pixilated images, messed up sound, and froze into the movie out of 4 movies all the time. Tried burning at 1x and 2x, same results. Data plays from HD fine, and I copied it to a RW to make sure and the RW played without a hitch. Im going to contact memorex and see what the deal is. Ive made 11 coasters with my first 11 tries.

I use a TDK 440N PC Burner and I Set Top Pioneer DMR-E50. I have had about a 40% failure rate with these Memorex DVDs. I bought 2 25pk spindles and 21 of them failed to burn without flaw. Ther is usually a 1/2 inch burned dot on the bad disks that appears only after the burn. I find these discs to be a total waist of money.

These Memeorex 4.7 DVD-R are pure crap...well almost pure. Over 20% failure rate. When they do burn successfully they play fine. I bought two 25-packs so far and had 7 fail in one pack and 5 on the other. The burner says they are already written to (they aren't) or that they are unrecordable. Don't waste your money on this brand. They also scratch too easily making them unplayable on some players. Hey Memorex, where's my $26.00 refund?

I wish I had found this site before I wasted $50 on this media. As one of the other users stated this media is worthless with the Sony DRU-510A, I usually make 3 coasters before I get a successful burn. When using other media e.g fujifilm or Imation I burn successfully 100% of the time. However when it does burn succesfully it plays just fine in my DVD players.

A large percentage of this manufacturer becomes coasters with my Sony DRU-510A. I've found other DVD-R brands very reliable, and I've even had great success with the Memorex DVD+R media, but that media is manufactured at Ricoh Japan. I've had little success with this brand burning at any speed, 1x, 2x, 2.4x, and 4x. Sony confirmed this Memorex DVD-R media made by CMC Mag. is not supported in their drives.

Well. I was wrong. The Memorex media work fine. Application of a label to the disc caused all the problems. I see these problems affect many people with various burners and media.

I received the Ritek GO4 4X DVD-R's today and they exhibit the same skipping problem as the movie nears the outside of the disc if and only if there is a label applied.

Without labels, the Memorex and the Ritek work fine in my DVD player.

So, my apologies to Memorex on this one. My apologies to CMC Magnetics also.

I do have some "mylar" plastic types of labels. Discs almost work well with these. The disc will freeze for a moment, but, the player can eventually recover.

I've heard clear labels are available, but, they don't render ink jet ink very well. Maybe someone will come up with a textured white plastic label that is extremely well-balanced?

Some standalone console DVD players might be able to play these discs (Ritek and Memorex) if they have paper labels applied. However, it seems that to achieve compatibility with all players around, I've got to avoid standard labels and full face labels for now. I don't want to give a disc to someone only to find that their player skips and freezes. I've got to leave the labels off.

Actually, I'm going to try hub (also called core)labels. Many have said these work okay.

I wonder if printing directly to the disc will also throw the disc off-balance? Epson has a couple of ink-jets that print directly to disc. But, I don't want to have to maintain a supply of another type of ink cartridge. Maybe Canon will release a disc print adaptable printer in the near future (in the U.S.) that will use my present supply of Canon cartridges?

Hate to have to print directly on the disc, however. This limits the types of disc that I can use to only the printable discs. That makes it more difficult to shop for a really good price.

Maybe someone will come up with

Daewoo DVG-500N standalone player freezes at chapters near the end of this disc. Others have reported this problem with these CMC Magnetics discs that are branded as Memorex. Those other people used burners different from mine and those other people used players different from mine. Therefore, I'm not going to blame my burner or player. I'm going to target the disc itself as the main problem.

I'm returning these to the store. My opinion? I've had troubles with some recently purchased CDRW that are made by CMC and are branded Memorex. Burning them in my Lite-On LTR-48125W has given me severe troubles. The Lite-On has been reliable many other media types.

I have even used CMC Magnetics CDR and CDRW discs branded by other companies in that Lite-On drive and the burns were perfect with reliable play on old drives that weren't even made to read burned discs.

But, when the Memorex brand name is placed on a CMC Magnetics disc, it seems there is a high probability that the disc is defective. My Lite-On CD burner has demonstrated this and now my NEC ND-1300A has demonstrated this.

I'm going to return these Memorex 4.7GB 4X DVD-R discs and proceed on the following presumptions:

1. CMC Magnetics discs are sometimes good sometimes bad.
2. If a CMC Magnetics disc is branded with the Memorex name, there's a high probability that it will be defective.
3. I'm going to avoid all discs branded with the Memorex name until such time that I see better reviews from other users.

As we all know, various disc factories produce some good product and some bad product. I am thinking that CMC Magnetics has sold some "B" grade DVD-R discs to Memorex. Maybe that's where this problem arises. Or, maybe, CMC Magnetics just hasn't developed their techniques to reduce flaws to an acceptable level on DVD-R discs?

I'm waiting on my shipment of Ritek GO4 DVD-R discs from Meritline.com. I think I can expect better results from those Ritek discs based on what I read here in the DVDRHelp forums.

Summary: Avoid Memorex discs if there are others available.

Over 50 perfect burns with Memorex DVD-R's. Absolutely no problems at all. Would definately recommend the DRU-510A. The 8MB buffer makes a huge difference. Make sure to download sony's DSS software to increase Read speed. Makes a huge difference.

I've used an array of media from 1x to 2x and 4x, I've bought generic media from Ebay sellers, and WalMart. This is the media I have chose to stick with. I've burned around 300 disks at 4x with maybe 10 bad burns, usually the bad burns were software oriented. I use Nero v6, and DVD2One to transcode. Many times the bad burns people get are related to hardware issue's or software problems, Never buy a cheap burner! It will cost you in the long run, buy name brand! This is the best media I have found yet.

This media is advertised to burn at 4X. I found it to be less reliable than the Verbatim media I have used. It WILL burn at 4X, but it won't consistently work. Some disks fail during the write process and others simply freeze up while playing although they appeared to record fine. It does, however, seem to burn reliably at 2X on my Optorite DD0203 with fw 2.16.

Media burns fine, plays back fine everywhere I've tested them. No coasters yet. Strange thing is, it takes as long to burn a full-length disc at 4x on these Memorex discs as it does to burn a full-length disc on some TDK 2x DVD-Rs that I have. Thats why I paid extra for these, for the 4x writing capability....lame. I've successfully burned at 4x before on other media so I don't think it's me.

Only successful on 25% of my attempts. All other attempts created coasters. A 2mm write to the center of the disc was all that was written to the media. No problems with either Meritline 1X or Ritek 4X media using the same software and hardware.

I'm very happy with this media, and the price is almost as good as the cheap 4x ritek and princo media I had been using. And when you figure in the amount of coasters I got with ritek and princo media the memorex ones are actually cheaper. Out of 75 of these discs burned, I haven't had one Memorex coaster to date.

Media burns fine at 4x, however when played on a dvd player or dvd rom, the copy appears very jittery at times, typical of my experience with cmc media.
