Absolutely horrible media. Picked up this spindle at best buy a week ago, tore into it and failed my first 4 in a row. I figured I had a dvd-writer/burning application problem. Went through 2 days of fighting DMA problems, DVD drive firmware upgrades and different dvd burning applications (including aspi verifications and tons of nero log searches).

Turns out the spindle is junk. I made about 15 coasters and then tore out a new memorex spindle from half a year ago, first one burned perfect at 4x. Bought at same time as a second spindle i used up and it was 100% good recordings as well. Did some research again, got a disk info tool and found out the truth.

THIS memorex production code is junk. RICOHJPN manufactured discs much better. Problem is you can't tell by looking at package.

Either I'm overlooking something, or this media is just flat out garbage. When first upgrading to this burner everything was seemingly smooth using my leftover Memorex 8X+R media, but once I switched to the 16X, nothing but problems. Coasters (if not flawless, ie., no freezing, hesitating, skipping etc., I consider it a coaster)on at least 8 of the first 10 burns.

Package labeled made in Taiwan, actually made in India. Don't waste your money on these discs. The quality control is abysmal. The first two discs burned beautifully, after that I suffered through 4 coasters. This is with my best burner that has had no problems burning the worst on CMC (India) 8x media. The burner is rated 16x but never got better than 5x on this media and this was when it worked well.

Comments posted by Antony Alonso from United States, January 14, 2006:
Poor quality media. Discs freshly burned (without benefit of scratches or fingerprints) freeze, hiccup, or cause pauses on standalone (Philips DVP642). Discs do burn at 16X on NEC 4550A burner. These discs all exhibit the above-described behavior, even with the "verify" option enabled on ImgBurn.

To those who've complained or observed otherwise, it's hardly fair to blame the media purely because it doesn't burn at the advertised speed. This is because you've either not updated your firmware (regardless of burner make/model) or the manufacturer themselves have not. When a mediacode is presented to a burner that it is unfamiliar with, it burns at a default speed and write strategy as set by the manufacturer or firmware author; this is designed to be a "failsafe" for unknown MIDs.

The media was on sale for $8/25pk at Circuit City. I really hate buying Memorex because they do not *MAKE* any media, but rather get a manufacturer who is cheapest in a given week or month to rebadge their media to reflect Memorex. That's why there are like a million MIDs for Memorex, and almost all of them are of poor quality (though when the 16X first came out, I got a Mitsubishi Chemical Corp --- AKA MCC pack; pure luck and never since). No other media brands were on sale thru today, so that's why I bought'em (which only shows you get what you pay for).

Purchased 200 of the Memorex DVD+R 16X manufactured by CMC and they would only burn at 12X in my new Pioneer DVR-110D 16X burner. I took then back for a refund. 16X media should burn at 16X. I also have a Pioneer DVR-108 8X burner and they will only burn at 4X.

With firmware 1.04 for NEC ND-3520A this media burns at 12X only, with Nero 6.6.0.8. Results in an NEC ND-3450A were even worse, at only 8X writes possible using firmware 102B. Different media from Memorex, branded as 16X DVD+R, in identical packaging was made by another company, and performed fine at 16X in both writers. Very disappointing overall on these. Will purchase other media in the future, as it's a toss up which actual OEM media you get with Memorex.
