These were the "Manager's Special." Have been reliable both when burning and when playing. Always burned at 8x but now that I have a few to spare, I may try to burn at 16x just to see what happens.

Out of 100 DVD+R discs I could only use 70. The rest appeared to hev been burnt OK, but after checking the data could not be read. Same happened when burning on other machines and any speed, so it wasn't the DVD Burners fault.
Waste of time and a waste of money. NEVER EVER Memorex again !

-Burned at 8x speed (only).
-Burns at full speed all the time... though lead-in and lead-out sometimes make really "interesting" noises and the drive seems to stop completely (pauses for quite a while).
-Data verification tests are fine. Copying a full dvd (mostly 200-700mb files) to hard disk takes up to 17 minutes, but nothing wrong with the data. Also, watching video directly from the DVD seems to work fine.
-these experiences are based on 17 burned disks.

all burns were successful, but none of the video actually ran past a few minutes. Any time I tried to chapter skip or fast forward, it would die. Then if I watched with no skipping, the video would get choppy, show mpeg artifacts, and stop. The original mpg file was fine.

Burned 50+ DVDs with Memorex +R 4X and never a coaster
Picked up 8X and first 3 burns were not worth watching.
Updated the firmware and a small improvement was notice
Recordings still glichy
But still do not feel good about this media!
Funny thing is The Memorex 4X was an CMC MAG F01

Comments posted by Kevin from Canada, January 05, 2005:
I originally bought these discs along with a new LiteOn 1633S burner. After some initial troubles I upgraded the firmware to BSOS and like many other LiteOn owners on this site I had nothing but troubles. Burning at 8X was useless. The DVDs would stutter and lock up randomly. Lowering the speed to 6X helped out but it still was only about 75% successful at best. I decided to take my burner back and I traded it in for a Pioneer DVR 108. Things immediately improved 100%. The Pioneer doesn't let you set the book type to DVD-ROM which I needed to get my DVDs to work on my old Panasonic home player. I decided to reflash the unit into a Piodata DVR-108 DX which automatically burns DVD+R discs to DVD-ROM. Burned discs can now be read in my computer, my old DELL laptop, my Panasonic as well as my son's Playstation 2. You can even set the maximum burn speed to 12X but for less PI errors it is best to stick with 8X. It only takes an extra minute. Great drive so far and these CMC MAG.E01 discs have less errors than the Ritek G05 DVD-R discs that I tried. The CMC disks also start up 50% faster in my home Panasonic player. For only about 40 cents each from Wal-Mart I will be buying plenty more. If you have a LiteOn then avoid these discs but they work great in Pioneer based drives, are inexpensive and readily available.

I recently bought a 10-pack of printable dvd from memorex 8x and tried to burn an image on it with Nero. The discs couldn't be read with neither my dvd-player (asus), my burner (lite-on) nor my sony standalone player. After burning the same image on a rw-disc from Philips it turned out to be playable in all players.

Avoid this media - ESPECIALLY if you have a PLEXTOR DRIVE. I got this 8x media and expected to burn at 8x - To my profound disbelief it started at 6x then dropped to 4x. MASSIVE CRC errors. I purchased 50 coasters unless I burn at 4x or lower. No more Memorex for me.

Burned at 8x in my Khypermedia 8x burner (rebadged Cyberdive DX082D with no problems. Haven't been able to see a difference between these and the highly regarded Verbatim (MCC 003) discs I've been usig lately. Plays in my Samsung DVD/VCR combo player and in the Lite-On SOHC-5232K combo drive in my computer.

The media is identified as being made by CMC Magetics Corp. by the Smartburn utility. I am using a Lite On SOHW 1633s 16x's burner. Eight of ten movies that I burn at 8x's, the stated rate, begin to stutter and then freeze towards the latter part of the movie when I play them in my Philips 727DVD standalone player. This media is awful. Unfortunately, I just bought two more spindles because they were on sale, and I will have to return them. I guess I can't trust memorex anymore. Too bad.

No problems at all burning at 4x. Have not tried 8x,
no need to really. This is the first media I have found that will play in both my standalone DVD players.

Very inconsistent quality of burns. I use mostly for backups of DVDs and even at the lowest burn speeds, I'm still getting only partially playable DVDs. Ratio of unsuccessful burns to completely successful burns is quite high. Didn't handle 8x well at all, but slower burn speeds seemed to improve it.

I had good experience with Memorex media in the past until I used their new 8x DVD+R media this week. Even though the DVD burning software does not report any error when writing my DVD movies, the media will always have problem playing on second half of the movies. The exact same movies burned on other DVD media, however, does not have such a weird reading problem at all. I have tried two different DVD burners NEC ND-2100AD and Pioneer DVR-106, both of which are excellent drives, different burning softwares, different speeds (8x, 4x) and different movies, but this Memorex 8x DVD+R media made by CMC MAG always have this exact same problem, regardless where the movie is played (two DVD burners and my home dvd player). This CMC MAG E01 media really sucks the big time.

I have checked my old Memorex 4x DVD+R and DVD+RW media, they never have such a problem. And the reason is simple: after using DVDIdentifier to check the OEM of those disks, I find out that none of those fine media are made by CMC MAG. So to conclude this review, avoid CMC MAG by all means.

Unlike the other extremely unfavorable review, mine is much more favorable. I reluctantly purchased the media at a local Fry's Electronics, not having read any reviews or knowing that Memorex even had an 8x media out there, but I was desperate for a reliable 8x media that would work with my components and actually burn at 8x. I've been pleasantly surprised with the overall results. On approx. 15-20 burns, I've experienced 2 or 3 bad burns, each of which I would attribute to the media, with the glitch appearing at the end of the disc. It could possibly have been the result of some smear/debris on the edges, but I doubt it because of the care I exercise in handling a disc, unless the disc came that way out of the wrapper(?). The one caveat I will add is that the success I've had lately also correlates directly with the 1.15 firmware upgrade to my Pioneer 107/A07 writer. But I'll take the success anyway I can get it considering the previous results I had had (the details of which I won't get into).

This media blows. I've had to reburn over 12 DVDs because they had video errors, and most of them became unreadable towards the end. Notice the medai code is IDENTICAL to BestMedia Platinums DVD+R 8x??? What kind of BS is memorex trying to pull?! Avoid this media!
