Unreliable: some discs burn fine, others have bad sectors (mostly freezes). This is a disappointing change from my prior good experience with Ritek Ridata G04 4X.
I returned this order to Meritline for store credit, and purchased Taiyo Yuden 4X DVD-R discs(TYG02)which have been reliable so far.

I have burnt about 50 of these little suckers and they work just fine. Not as good as my TY's but they are better than Princo and other cheaper media.
Pitty Ritek is no longer making them as I have found the G04 to be a better and more reliable disc than the G05.

I have bought over 1000 of these at my local store. I've only gotten one bad batch out of these, where in the cakebox of 50, around 10 disks didn't work. This was about 4 months ago. I'll continue using these until I see them breaking down.

They also last very well, unlike my Princo's. Never buy those.

i have probably burned about 300 of these dvd-r with my pioneer 106 and never had a single problem.

i recently bought a shrink wrapped 50 pack of ridata g04 (media code shows up as RITEKG04 as well) and they seem to be just as good so far, not to mention a few dollars cheaper. im very pleased with ritek/ridata. two thumbs up.

ok well just like steve crowe's comment about his situation with the riteks. i witness the exact same problem. i am also an owner of a pioneer a05 and i have the exact same problems as him. I purchased a 100pk of ritek g04's branded/matte from www.mertiline.com for about 40 cents each. These were in 4 cakeboxes packages of 25 in each. The media looked normal but the branded said ritek/ridata dvd-r media rated at 2x/4x version 2.0 I found this funny and tried the media anyways. First burn used nero 6.0 didnt get a power calibration error and i burned the first media fine at 4x. After that. all the power calibration errors started to come up with dvd decryptor and i could only burn the media if i lowered the speed to 2x. This is kind of a drag that i paid money for 4x media and i have to burn it at 2x. anyhoo. after doing that all the media burns perfectly fine except for the fact that it goes so much slower!

Playback on dvd players is perfectly fine. I havent had a problem on a samsung i forgot the model number (im at work right now) and an apex 1200. Both played the media flawlessly.

What bugs me though is that i purcahsed a 100pk which came in 4 x 25pk cakeboxes about 3 months ago from www.shop4tech.com they were unbranded with nothing on them except for a silver top/matte. but the media id ran as ritek g04. anyhoo. all 100 of those burned w/o any problems at all.

the only problems i had was with the branded ridata ones that were labeled as version 2.0 g04 media. i guess ritek is getting cheap on us or gave up on us a05 users. my friend has a pioneer a06 and it burns perfectly fine on his at 4x (branded version from meritline.com)

sucks to be me i guess anyways. i am also using gradius 1.33 hacked firmware on my pioneer a05.

never had a problem with any media til i got to this batch of riteks. what a drag. =(

I have burned Ritek G04 media in my Pioneer DVR-A05/105 without any problems until I got this batch of 50 (2 x 25 spindles) from Shop4Tech. This new batch will only burn at 2X. I get a calibration error if I try and burn them at 4X. However, they do burn OK at 4X in my Lite-On 811S - Go figure... I use Gradius's v1.33 hacked firmware in my Pioneer DVR-A05/105 but I did try falling back to the standard v1.33 firmware and they still get a calibration error at 4x (OK at 2X).

I purchased two 25 pks of the Ridata GO4 media and all were flawless. The GO4 brand is just one that is truly a no brainer for my Toshiba SD-R5272 Burner. This media once burned will work in any player I have put it in. I own Jvc, Pioneer, and Toshiba. The Toshiba and Jvc players are very peticular about media, very unfreindly players. My Pioneer dvs260 will play just about any media, very freindly player. I have also used the Ritek Bulk from Shop4Tech Shiny top 4x 100pk and those were flawless also.

and had about 10+ discs failed on him. Apart from Pioneer DVR-A07/107, we have also used Sony DRU-510A, Pioneer A05/105(burning well at 2x speed) and Pioneer A06/106 burners.

This media is horrendous. I originally purchased a 50 pack of SILVER top Riteks from Newegg and got ZERO coasters. I was like "hey, this is some good stuff, I'll buy some more." I feel like an arse now because 1 out of 5 DVDs is completely successful. My case can be chalked up with the "Dye discoloration" and "Skipping/Pixelation" problems seen sporatically with these reviews.

I do not recommend this media, and am rather pissed that I purchased $50 worth of these things, only for them to end up in a landfill.

I also feel bad that I returned my burner because I thought it was the problem. Liteon Rocks, Ridata does not.

Can you imagine only one out of every five cars manufactured functioning?

If you like to waste your money, time, oil and pollute the planet, these are for you.

Media caused all sorts of problems for both the Plextor 708a and NEC 1500a. Burned at 2x for quality assurance, but consistently had pixel/sound problems during the last 10-15 minutes of media.

Excellent quality media! I have burned over 130 and have only had one coaster that was probably due to user error. Discs even play in my ancient Pioneer DV-505 that I bought back in 1998. Amazing!

About 10 of the 50 discs burned at 2x only. Those were a bit annoying, but it seemed to only plague a few. The rest burned clean at 4x with no problems.

A number of posts on UK sites have identified massive flaws in Ritek G04 with the orange label.

http://www.dvd-recordable.org/modules.p ... &id=76


Additional posts have researched the source of these discs and said that Ritek stated that they were to be destroyed but somehow found their way into the pipeline and were distributed in the UK.

I can confirm that at least some of these are showing up in the US as I just went through a 100 stack I received this week and found 11 with flaws in the dye that were visible to the eye. Some flaws were up to 1/4 inch long.

I have had very good luck with this media. I bought a cake box of 100 Ritek from allmediaoutlet.com. after reading about them on this site. I have 6 DVD players and have used several brands of media ( Memorex, Fugi, Verbatum,All Media) with mixed results. Disk that would play on one player would not play on another.The Ritek played on all my players. I have had no coasters at all.I then ordered another cake box of Ritek and was surprised to see that they looked totally different. The second box contained green disks with the name Arita on them, but they worked just as well as the first box.At the same time I ordered a small box of 25 House Brand from allmediaoutlet.com, and I must say that these did NOT work well at all, image locks up on play back on all my machines. I will stay with Ritek.

I got a 25-pack cake box from PC-Club store in Southern Cali, the cake box is not sealed and it looks cheap. But I was surprized to see that it's a RITEK and it burns at 4x with no problems. Inspect the media carefully before buying it. The disks are orange in color on top with some "mountain" black graphics. It is hard to find a place to put a lable on the disk. I use a permanent marker to label my disks. It also plays on my PS2.

Ritek DVD-Rs burn pretty well. I don't think I met a coaster from the 200+ Riteks I've burned.

HOWEVER, these dvd-r's are not perfect! As like any other media that I've been through, these Riteks(both shiny silver and matted silver, whether they are non-branded or branded Ridata from allmediaoutlet, meritline, blankcddvdrw, Newegg) DO HAVE FAULTS IN THEM. The rate of defects(including dirty media(not dust) and abnormalties in dye,like specs) from what I see is 10-70% per 50pc spindle. Quite a few of them are not perfect. The dye on the rest of the discs were good or sometimes very good. If you check the dye under a bright light carefully(best magnified), you will notice small comet shaped abnormalties from perhaps particles during the dye coating(or in the dye). These marks make pixelations or stall in video in some dvd players.(Obviously, a loss of data)

I'd like to note that this is the same with any other disc brand. Haven't found(or tried) one brand that I'd say is reliable.


For those who think their Riteks were the best(or perfect), please visually check their media and let others know what it's like. Thanks.

Nothing pre-printed on top of the media. This is good because you have more room to write what you want. Burned about 10 discs with no problems at all. No coasters.

dvd backups won't play at all on my apex ad-1500. only way i could get them to play was using imgtool, setting booktype to dvd-rom. even still, the discs skipped a great deal, especially towards the end of the movie.

Works every time, but not a 4x written speeds. There is breaking up and freezing momnets during the last 10 minutes of every movie. This is because the disc is moving fastest near the edges rather than near the center and the dye cannot pick up all data being written by the laser at this top speed. All speeds under 4x work fine.
