I bought two of these 20-pack spindles at Best Buy, same silver colored discs, same packaging and same UPC codes but one was made in India and the other one was made in Singapore. Tested in 3 DVD burners and didn't see any difference in write quality between the discs made in Singapore and the ones made in India. These are the best dual layer discs I have ever used, expensive but worth it for the quality.

Tested with these three burners: Pioneer DVR-111D (Firmware 1.29), Samsung TSSTcorp SH-S182D (firmware SB06) and Sony DRU-190a (firmware 1.65). Write Quality was best using Pioneer DVR-111D.

Please see disc quality scores below:

1) Nero Disc Quality Scan with Verbatim MKM 001 (made in India) burnt 7.59GB movie at 2.4x speed with Pioneer DVR-111D:

3) Nero Disc Quality Scan with Verbatim MKM 001 (made in Singapore) burnt 7.59GB movie at 2.4x speed with Sony DRU-190a:

Nero. Sometimes a blank disc would not burn in my Pioneer DVR-111D. Ejecting the disc and re-inserting it again usually fixed the problem. If that didn't work, rebooting and starting Nero again would always fix the problem.

Utter garbage. Gets recognized in some burners, not recognized in others. In the one's it gets recognized, it may or may not burn, but will never play. Not the media it used to be.

Watch out people!. There are two versions. Made in Singapore seem to be better (haven't tried yet) but the ones i got from India are terrible. Tried all different speeds on 2 different writers. Pioneer 111D and BenQ1655. The Pioneer shows 2.4x, 4x, 6x and 8x while the Benq only has 2.4x. Tried all speeds. Benq won't burn at all, power calibration error right at the start, Pio will burn at 2.4 and 4 but the Pif failures on second layer make it go below quality of 50 in nero cd-dvd speed. Terrible. STAY AWAY!

Followup: They seem to burn OK at 4X. The first few worked at 6X, then I got 3 coasters in a row. The Pioneer firmware allows 8X which works on the Singapore media but not the India.

Comments posted by MrMoody from United States, May 25, 2007:
Media code is similar to Verbatim Singapore product, but these are inferior. Beware the Made In India label. 2 coasters out of 12 so far, they don't like being burned close to the edge. Seem usable if your image isn't too close to the limit. Play OK if they verify OK. Never had a coaster with the Singapore discs. Singapore discs bear the words DOUBLE LAYER on the top, these do not, and note slightly different code block.

While burning at 8x, it stopped at 72%. In that case, the burner becomes not responding, and only a reboot of the computer can solve the problem. Should try burning at a lower speed.

No problems burning three discs so far; Nero CD-DVD Speed v4.60 Quality Scan data is as follows:

Total/Avg/Max PiE, Total/Avg/Maximum PiF, Glitches removed, Nero score

#1: 696304/25.84/181, 1775/0.09/7, 0, 96
#2: 884201/32.25/363, 782/0.06/7, 0, 96
#3: 31189/2.10/14, 700/0.03/2, 0, 95

#2 seemed to regress a bit from #1, but look at my 3rd burn -- average PiE = 2.10!!! And of course, the PiFs are great. Note that #1 and #2 were scanned in my BenQ DW-1650, and #3 was scanned in my Lite-On SHW-1635s. Also, I burned one of these in the Lite-On -- it wasn't so good -- I'll stick with the BenQ.

I have uploaded snapshots of these scans here if you wish to browse:

Burns well in NEC3500A and LG H22N @ 4x. Scans well in a Benq DW1650. Reads fine in all standalones.

To the person who was disappointed that they weren't Taiyo Yuden. Firstly, if it's made in Singapore, it's pretty much a given that it won't be a TY. Secondly, MIS Double Layers are the best of breed of all Double Layer discs.. why are you even disappointed? Finally, Verbatim have never even touched TY dual layer (-R DL) discs.. so why would you even expect them to be TY?

Bought the VERBATIM 3-pak at local WalMart when I got new PIONEER DVR-111D. My 1st Dual-Layer drive. My other DVD Writer LiteOn LDW-411S has been very reliable. When my ULTIMA ELECTRONICS DVD-ROM drive failed, I decided it was time to upgrade to Dual-Layer. Bought the VERBATIM brand cause of their reputation of coaster-free burns. Ruined 2 disks of the 3-pak. Got a Power Calibration Error half way through the burn. I then bought a Hewlett Packard branded 3-pak DL disk and they burned with no errors, although at 2.4x speed. Don't know what the prob w/ the VERBATIM disk was, may try again when new firmware for PIONEER is released.

Works well so far...

Media is rated at 2.4x but the label reads "up to 8x speed." I am using external USB so I was not able to burn so fast, no faster than 2x, actually. Perhaps a firmware update would speed it up. It wants to burn at at least 4x in DVD Decrypter.

Terrible media. The first 10-pack I bought burned ok, but my second 10-pack had a 50% failure rate on burn. CompUSA does not honor returns on defective discs. This comes out to $17.50 wasted on bad discs.

It's worth noting that these discs don't *say* Datalife Plus, but do have the same media code as DLP discs. Regardless, I'm not a big fan of Verbatim to begin with, and these discs ensure that I won't be buying Verbatim (or CompUSA) products again.

This DL DVD came in a cake box but the burning qualities are very good (checked with plextools).
There ere no problems in layerswitching and the second layer has constantly low error rates.
Only negative point wold be the inner circle which has visible quality issues(unglued sport visible) and the outer edge which has a very uneven glue edge(but its thigtly glued).

After trying Memorex 2.4x DVD+R DL media (Ritek) in a spindle of 25 with 5 out of 5 attempted burns gone bad, the Verbatim DVD+R DL media was amazing! Not only have 20+ discs burned successfully so far with no errors, but also they burn at 8x in my Sony DRU-810A burner! No other media right now will burn above 2.4x (that I have seen). These discs are great! Avoid the Memorex ones at all costs! Found the Verbatim ones at OfficeMax in quantities of 3 or 10.

Worked great once I upgraded the firmware on my Lite-On SOHW-1653S. I don't recommend burning at above 2.4x even though on the label it says it's capable of burning at 6x with compatable drives.

Got these from Bestbuy (10 Discs for 19.99 special on the web) a week ago. They are MKM. Burns at 2.4X on my
NEC2500A with Hacked firmware to make it NEC2510A
so that I can write DL.
Plays well on SONY DVP-C650D player bought in Dec 1999
(5 Disc changer).

I also tried Memorex 3 weeks ago. I got them from Bestbuy for 30$ (15 discs). These memorex did not play first. Today, I bought Maxell DVD Lense cleaner disc from Target for 12.99 and cleaned the lense of my Sony Player.
Now Memorex also plays on my SONY :) :)
DVD+RW single layer also plays now.

Comments posted by Mick Golby from United Kingdom, May 05, 2005:
Total, and expensive, crap. Out of 10 discs, so far only one successful burn and that won't play properly in either my Toshiba DVD player amd only just plays in my Philips. Have used discs under three different firmware versions of the Pioneer. Makes no difference. Problem seems to be with finalising the disc. It just doesn't. Considering these are the most expensive on the market in the UK, they really are a complete waste of money.
Its not the Pioneer that is the problem as Trax and RiDisc 8.5gb Dual Layer, which are both considerably cheaper here, work perfectly and play in both my DVD players. Shame, as I have had few problems in the past with Verbatim DVD-R/+Rs. Won't be wasting my money on these again. Anyone want to buy 4 still shrink wrapped?

After purchasing a 3 pack of Memorex Dual Layer DVD+R's and all came up Coasters, read the comments about these DVD+R Dual Layers. Bought a 3 pack from CompUSA for $19.99 and burned 2 DVD Backups with out any hitches. Burned prefect and play on all the stand alone DVD players I have. Was offered 3 different speeds, 2.4x, 4, and 6x, but only burned at 2.4x as advertised. Will continue to use these unless I find something better that works.

Initially had some problems getting this media to work in my panasonic s-75 player (nice player btw) because i used dvdshrink 3.2 and nero to burn it.

Now i use dvd decrypter to dump and burn the ISO and works perfectly. If you have the s-75 and having problems then please use dvd decrypter...it DOES work i assure you :)

If it helps, i burned the discs at 2.4x. They do burn ok at x4 but because of the early probs i had, i thought 2.4x would be a safer way to go.

Great media (despite the current prices). Can't wait for prices to drop...come on verbatim :)

Burns at an actual 6x in the Plextor PX-716A, with no errors. Readable in Plextor PX-708A and Sony RDR-HX900.

Not readable in an old JVC XV-525, or a more recent Sony SLV-D100. Perhaps the latter would work with a slower burn speed, but at $8 a pop, I'm not in a hurry to test that theory.

Heres some info.. a word to the wise. I have burned a few DL discs (copies of discs I own) both Ridata and Verbatum and if I apply labels to either DL discs they fail either at the start or midpoint on any player I have tried. Labels dont affect single layer media (probably because they weigh less) but do cause reading problems with double layer media.So if you are burning one shot DL disc dont apply labels they will stop the players from working and are a pain to get offer later.
Good Luck

Would start then pause repeatedly when played in my PS2. In order to play in Xbox I had to change book type to DVD-ROM with DVDinfoPro before burning with Nero. Discs state they can burn up to 4x in compatible hardware. My BTC says it is a 4x DL burner but it only saw them at 2.4x. My old GE played them just fine which is funny because that thing doesn't like any copied discs and it is the oldest unit I have. My newer Sylvania combo DVD/VCR would start and then stop like all the others.

Ripped w/DVD Decrypter 3.5.1.0 in ISO read mode (check "write .mds file ON)
Burned w/DVD Decrypter in ISO write mode (loaded .mds file)

Also burned fine on LG GSA-4120B burner w/firmare V1.11 @2.4x & booktype set to DVD-ROM. DVD Decrypter complained about something being wrong with the media. I cliked OK and it went ahead and burned it perfectly regardless.

Made back-ups of the 3 movies Star Wars Trilogy disc set. All 3 burned discs play perfectly on both my settops. Ripping and burning in ISO mode ensured that the layer break was exactly at the same place as on the original discs. I verified this 100% on all 3 discs. I also watched all 3 movies on the burned discs from beginning to end so I can confirm they're 100% good.

At first, I tried ripping in file mode (IFO & VOB's) w/DVD Decrypter and burned using Nero 6.1.3.25 in DVD-Video compilation mode: BIG mistake!! This is how you make faulty discs because Nero doesn't put the layer break in the right spot. Result: burned disc will load but it skips and stutter at the beginning of the movie and will not switch layers properly (either freezes or skips a 15-30 second portion of the movie in that area).

Nero 6 is NOT ready for prime time when it comes to burning dual-layers in DVD-Video compilation mode: DON'T even try it!!! I did not however try to burn the ISO image with Nero: too scared of making any more bad discs and besides, DVD Decrypter burns PERFECT discs in ISO mode.

Bottom line:
You wanna make sure your discs will work perfectly? Use DVD Decrypter in ISO mode ONLY both for ripping and burning. That's the ticket.

I've used three of the Verbatim DVD+R DL discs and have had different results. Here they are: I'm running Windows XP I'm burning the DL discs with a Sony DRU-700A and using Nero 6.3.1.10 SE (Sony Edition)The three DL discs play fine in the DRU-700A Now the standalone players and the titles. The titles backed up were The Shining,Live And Die In LA and Millennium Season 1 Disc 5. I have 2 Code Free DVD Players (1)Pioneer DV-440 (2)Panasonic DVDR45K

Millennium Season 1 D5 plays in both DVD Players
The Shining will only play in the Panasonic DVDR45K
Live And Let Die will only play on the Pioneer DV-440 but freezes on the original layer change
