Media worked flawlessly. But several weeks ago I started seeing more and more freezes. This may be due to my Aiwa XD-DV370's aging, possibly buffering component going bad.

This is the only media I have not been able to burn at the rated top speed. First 3 discs i burnt came up with errors in Nero 6 verifier. Errors were Video_ts.bup & ifo are different etc. The only other time I have recieved this error is when the files I was burning were badly defragmented. Even with errors movies played fine in dvd player. Recieved no errors when burnt at 2X.

Comments posted by Steve from Canada, November 06, 2004:
Disaster time. First three seemed to burn just right, but didn't terminate. On the third try, I tested before burning - it tested fine but still didn't terminate. I tried using DLA to burn the next data disc, but it kept freezing up my computer. This media cost as much as the Imation I bought today, but the Imation I tried burned just fine with the same data. I don't think the discs are bad, but they just won't work with my Lite-On 812S. I hope my friends can use them because they are just unreliable for me. Ironically, the super cheap media sold at the same sources had many many errors, but I never had a trouble with them terminating, and the error rate appears to be the same. I would not recommend this media unless you test a sample in your burner first. There is competing media that is far more compatible and costs about the same, without the frustration.
Just another note, the Lite-On has a lot more trouble with -R media than +R media.

Just got worst batch ever; out of 30+ burned discs of off this spindle, 29 have errors at the end of the discs (I havent test first few discs until I realised theyre bad).
Bought them frome here: http://www.blankdvdmedia.com/ridata4xwip.php
I knew right away theyre different, I never had RiData blanks looking on their top exactly like many other unbranded shiny/silver cheap-o- blanks (see the center disc ring scan I have attached - and AVOID THESE!)
I hope 3 other spindles I got are not as bad, geez...

killer price from newegg. have burned over 200, have another 200 waiting. not 100% success as with the shrink wrapped no label version of the g04. maybe 1 coaster out of 25. hate to have to verify all backups though....too time consuming. will probably go back to shrink wrapped version after these are gone. awesome price....riteks seconds maybe?

We at Good Dog Productions have burned hundreds of these discs and not had any problems whatsoever. In our experience, the Ritek/Ridata discs have proven to be very dependable. These are the discs we use for our clients' DVDs. If there were issues, we'd know about it!

Just have to say that this media seems to be some really great stuff! Bought 2x50, 99 did very good burns. The one that didnt make it, well..R.I.P.
Probably killed it myself stressing the system alot.
I havent tried play on a standalone but my plextor just can't get enough of these babies!
I highly recommend this media to all PX-708A users. Just relax and forget about the slower 4x.
I know I will :)

Wow! first time i test these discs all i gotta say they rock.. No coasters, no errors, no nothing. These discs makes it too easy to create high quality dvd's.

I will never touch Princo discs again. Only Ritek will do from now on.

I though i did a good deal buying cheap princos but no, since 50% of them worked that makes the princos the same price as these. Dont bother trying to get princos or other cheap media to work, buy these discs right away.

I had been using ritek x2 dvd-r priviously, worked excellent. So I went ahead and purchased another 50 ritek DVD-R and got this printable one with matte top cover. I tried to burn 20 discs for movies, 14 turned out to be bad. I initially thought my burner got a problem , b/c I have been using the same software and had excellent results with Ritek. So I replaced my burner, same problem. Discs either can not be finished at the end of burning or can not be played at all. Try to update the software and use different burn speed, no help. Some of discs seems fine but turned out to be stuttering in the middle. Finally I think maybe it is the media itself. So I burned this movie use ridata, it stuttering very bad in the middle, then I use the same image and burn into a memorex, no problem at all. So I am pretty sure the ridata itself is the culprit. Be careful, if you read all the comments for this one, you will know I am not the only one. It seems ritek has trouble to keep the product at same quality.

I have no idea why people are having so many issues with these DVDs. Maybe they need to learn how to use a computer and it's components. Ridata is the best I have used in my Plextor PX708-A Since I have had it. Better than Memorex by far with their 23 different media codes.
I have already gone throuogh 25 of the 50 in the spindlle and not ONE coaster, flaw, or issue as of yet.
Plextor is picky for what media it likes, and boy does it love these DVDs. I am glad I can get them from my local computer store at all times now.
Great Stuff!
Oh and it is true that the new Pioneer will burn these DVDs at 8x- even though they are rated at 4x

I bought my first spindle, Ritek silver tops from esbuy.com and they would pixelate and freeze on my standalones. I thought it was a bad batch. I then bought printable white tops from Newegg.com (great online seller), and they were worse. To be honest, they seem to burn well and play well in my burners. I just use them for 3gig worth of file backup media.

Tried every trick in the book with Pioneer A06 and Liteon 451s. 1x-2x-4x, different firmware, different burning proggies and all to no avail.

Ritek may just be going through some growing pains....There are alot of positive reviews here, and I wish mine was one of them, but sadly it's not.

Well I had hoped to be able to add positive comments for these Ridata discs, but I can't. I got a 50pack form Newegg yesterday. I burned 4 discs and got three coasters! If I look at the burn surface I can see imperfections, dust, scratches, etc... I'm very disappointed.

I just went through a 50 pack of Memorex -R's without a single coaster. I had hoped that the glowing reviews online were true about these Ridata discs but not in my case.

This media burns great for me, but I am not very pleased with the printable surface. Compared to the Optodisc printable surface the Ritek surface is rather glossy. Printing on them with my Epson 960 looks fuzzy and a bit transluscent.

Overall, I prefer the print quality of the Optodisc over the Ritek, but the Optodisc are terrible for me as far writing go. Optodisc DVD+R's won't work AT ALL with InstantCopy.

Burned with Primo DVD




 
Comments posted by Knocks from United States, January 25, 2004:
Purchased from Newegg, 50 for $50. Burned the first disc at 4x. The movie did not play in my Xbox (Philips DVD-ROM), my laptop (Toshiba DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo), or my external DVD burner that I used to burn the disc (Optorite 2203).

The disc did play in my less than 2 month old JVC XV-N30BK, but the picture was stuterring in certain spots. Suddenly it started stuttering a lot, and my DVD player powered off. It hasn't worked since. Very disappointing, considering I have had great success burning Philips DVD+R (CMC) at 2.4x and those discs were readable by every DVD device in my house.

Ordered item #1618 from RIMA because last batch of 100 disks burnt & printed 100%. This batch I can't print on clearly my Epson 960. I printed an old one fine even after these new ones fail. Burn was successful.

Noticed the old batch had RIDATA in white. RIMA states "Some manufacturing adjustments are made over time with the top surface and ID stamping. The trend of Ritek has been to create a glossy look on their printables."

Good results on Pioneer drives (inc. DVR-105). Yet another case of "find the media", like Princo there are different suppliers & import paths, effectively creating "sub-brands", so, in Australia, we have unbranded RiData media (prob the silvers, from the "official" importer), and the purple/pink face from a variety of others, also "Ritek" branded for good measure. One of my contacts reported some duds on one spindle, the first case of bad media with any RiData/Ritek CD-R or DVD-R in my experience.

Inkjet printable media. I was NOT able to burn these at 2X with my Pioneer A03 running 2.00. Using Veritas, I was able to burn an image at 1X with no trouble. At 2X, I either got errors or unplayable discs. Excellent printable surface - prints great with Epson 960 printer. Purchased in 25 pack from Meritline, no cakebox or anything - just discs wrapped together.
