I burn DVD format using my PC and playback on my LG-LRH 790 usually without a hitch. A few disks have given me a frozen screen. However, 2 disks that work fine for playback in my LG DO NOT WORK in Samsung's R-150. The Samsung won't even see that there is a disk and thus no playback is possible whatsoever.

Comments posted by Matt Murphy from United States, March 11, 2006:
I have used this media for several months and burned several hundred of these with no coasters on my PC (quite a few on my Panasonic DMR-E50, but that's the fault of that crappy recorder, not the discs.) Only caveat is that all Memorex DVD-Rs always burn at 4X speed, no matter what recorder or firmware (or PC) I'm using. Also, the Panasonic DMR-E50 generally got along with these discs until a few days ago. I upgraded the firmware and (knock on wood) the problem seems fixed. However, the Panasonic is extremely unreliable and will go into fits of not working or not finalizing, regardless of the kind of disc in it, so it's probably not the fault of the discs. In fact, this is one of the only discs that the DMR-E50 will even try to record on.

Equipment is: PC #1: LG GSA-4163B w/ A105 firmware); PC #2: Generic 8X burner I160 firmware; Set-top: Panasonic DMR-E50, with original firmware but just upgraded the other day.

Comments posted by Playboy from United States, January 28, 2006:
I bought TONS of these disks before the question
occured to me, "Why do I see these on sale every
other week?"

That said, I really haven't had any immediate
coasters with them, and the burn will complete
at the rated speed.
But the chance that your data will still be
readable next year, month, or sometimes even
just next week, really is a coin flip with these
discs.

I still buy them occasionally since they are usually
on sale somewhere, the only thing that has changed
is that I no longer give them to people I
actually LIKE.

Take them for what they are, cheap, short-term
storage.

I've not found a better combination to burn with. This memorex actually burns at 16X perfectly using the Sony DRU-810A.

After burning with NEC, Toshiba, Samsung, Mad Dog, EMPREX, HP and other Sony burners using TDK, Fuji Film, HP, Verbatim and a few other brands of media this is by far the best results I've stumbled across. I've even attempted different systems, motherboards, memory and hard drive configurations hoping to obtain high speed burns that are perfect every time.

LG has a firmware update for the disks, however, other disks will only burn at 2X once updated.
My experience so far, is that this media is NOT compatible with older DVD players. It is a product I will avoid in the future.

CMC MAG's of the past doesn't have the best reputation, but these latest ones CMC MAG AM3's (so far) have worked OK for me.
Burns perfectly & read perfectly fine on my NEC 3520 & HP 420. Odd target errors occasionally when burning on my Pioneer 109.
Otherwise playback on all my home DVD players, XBox, & PS2 have been great.
Maybe CMC's will get an upgrade to Tier 2 (see nomorecoaster.com).......

These are 16x discs, I only have a NEC ND-2500a (updated to 2510) and have just had 50 flawless burns at 8x each (the burner only burns at 8x's) with no errors on playback.

All burns were iso, TSvideo folders, and img files in Nero, Roxio, and decryptor.

The results I had with other types (8x) were much better resolution and picture quality, and these are constantly skipping! I am not happy with these at all, and I will discard them, or just use them for data storage instead of transcoded TV shows and movies.

I purchased a 25 pack of these 16x for $19.99 from CompUsa. The 8X 25 pack DVD-R from memorex were twice the price of these 16X. THere is an insert in the packaging stating to update your drive and recorder for 16X dvd-r discs. Unfortunately the new update for mine still only burns these puppies at 4x on my 8x microadvantage.

not so happy with these at all.
