I've only had one white square show up on Dvdinfopro. I would still consider that a failed burn. But listening to the drive while it tests isn't exactly stress free. It makes alot of clicking noises as my Lite-On drive tries to read it. So only one coaster so far. Ironically I bought these at Walgreens. Picked the DVD+R and a pack of DVD-R's and the DVD-R's are RitekF1 media and no problem with those. Why TDK went with cmc mag I have no idea. I don't usually have a problem with cmc mag like others have. But these make alot of racket reading. :( Made some luck with 6x but not much. Mostly 4x.

I did not realize this stuff was so bad until I burned 30 of them. It works in my Toshiba but not in the Sony. Failed in most of my friends homes. This is junk compaired to Verbatum disks. CMC Mag is bad. Read all other review on this mfg. Very few will play in many DVD players.

This product came in a shrink-wrapped 100-disc stack with a plastic support base & spine and no other outer packaging apart from the label. There is no Made In XXXX text anywhere on the packaging or the disks. The package was a gift and the buyer reported the cost was $40AU for 100. The media burns reliably on Pioneer DVR-108 & DVR-106. Plays well on both, however Nero CD-DVD Speed reports v. low quality of <20% when tested on the DVR-109 at 8x, but >96% on the DVR-106 at 8x?! Plays fine on LG-8900, Nintaus 9800 and Sansui DV-X2600.

absolute garbage, contantly freezes, won't burn at 16x instead have to lower it to 12x or 8x but even then it still won't playback on my Portland DVD player which plays just about everything. I've wasted about 40 out of the 50, and even got a new dvd player and still nothing. Gotta re-burn.

Glad I only bought a small amount of these discs. They rarely burnt correctly and only read in one of my 3 dvd players, and one of 2 dvd burners. None of the other players recognize the discs and the other burner thinks they are cd's. I also had no luck with the 8x TDK's. TDK really needs to change there media supplier.

No success burning with Nero or a couple of other DVD burning software I found on the web. Data will burn successfully onto DVD, but will fail verify checks. When you try to read from the DVD, it'll hang Windows apps (particularly Explorer). Not likely compatible despite what Plextor has listed on its support page.

Media works at all speeds (my drive will burn up to 16x) but judging by what others say, I usually burn at 8x or 6x (not much difference in burn time between 6x,8x,16x anyway). Seems to be very reliable - have had very few coasters (maybe 1 or 2 bad discs in 100) or read problems from various computers and DVD players. Bought this at Costco during 2 for 1 sale so about $0.20 each (pre-tax). Love the paper white surface - very easy to write on it by hand with permanent marker (much easier than any smooth plastic surface).

I have been using TDK since 8-track days. I have gone through about 10 of these packs of them and have had only 5 bad ones. Those are ones that either the original was scratchy or I burned to fast. I normally burn at 6x and never have a problem. I have found that if you buy the 100 cake pack there are a few bad ones in it, so I stay away from them.

When I first started backing up movies, I burned at 16X, directly from the original DVD. DVDs burned OK, and played well on my computer and my Bose 1-2-3 player, but failed to play on some other players. Later, I started staging the data to my hard drive, then writing at 4X, and have not had a single failure since. Plays well on every player I've tried.

PURE junk...have had very few disks...check that...NO disks that have not had a problem with skipping and hesitation during playback. I too did the Costco buy one get one free deal...funny thing was, the CASHIER told me about the deal when I went to purchase another (better) single pack...MORE is NOT always better Costco!!! DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE! Shame on TDK for producing it and shame on Costco for pushing it...and shame on ME for buying it!

Bought at Costco with 2 for 1 coupon. Some disks had some slightly damage (very small scratches on surface) on the outer edge but didn't seem to interfere with burn. Works well when burned at 12x or lower. 16x will result in coasters. (The dye will melt at the edge and finalization will not complete at 16x) Last years DVD+R 8x TDK media from Costco worked flawlessly burned at 4x.

Purchased this TDK (CMC) DVD+R media in 100 stack under Costco's "buy 1 get 1 free" coupon. Works out to about $.22 per disc. This media is "ok". I have had a couple that were obviously damaged (scratches in the surface, gaps in the dye) and a couple of burn failures - even at 8x. I have resorted to burning at 4x. Don't even think about 16x! I have been a TDK media fan for a long time, but they need to institute better QC on CMC if they are going to use their media.
As a side note - I also have some of last year's Costco 2 for 1 TDK media (CMC 8x media) and have had absolutely no problems with it - burning at 4x.

Discs burn and verify fine, but NEC 3540a will slow down the burn on many of the discs to 12x or 8x when a 16x burn is selected.
