hilander -> basic question (12/10/2004 6:01:20 PM)

Hello,
Can we say that CD-R media have better writing quality than DVD-R and DVD+R media and DVD+R media have better writing quality then DVD-R media.
Thanks a lot




MP3Mogul -> RE: basic question (12/10/2004 7:01:08 PM)

No, that statement would not be true.




hilander -> RE: basic question (12/11/2004 7:05:14 PM)

well, i come to this conclusion reading your reviews




Flash -> RE: basic question (12/11/2004 10:41:07 PM)

It is entirly dependant upon the media used

CD-R quality and DVDR quality can not be compared. Maybe the lifespan of specific discs could be, but it's difficult to test for lifespan in an accurate manner.

DVD-R and DVD+R formats both have good and bad media available. And every burner has it's own biases.




Halcyon -> RE: basic question (12/15/2004 9:27:35 AM)

Actually I agree with the statement.

But only as a _practical_ _average_.

Reasons:

In practise, it is more likely to get a USABLE and WITHIN SPECIFICATIONS cd-burn with a Random CD-R media and random CD-R burner (assuming both are modern, and not 10 years old).

However, this is based on statistics.

One can still burn crappy burn with cd-r and crappy dvd-r (as well as good ones).

It's just that the state of dvd burning is still so bad (especially media quality and firmware compatibility) that out-of-spec and unusable burns are more likely in dvd burning.

But that does not mean (imho) that DVD burning is _inherently_ worse than cd-r burning.




Iggy -> RE: basic question (12/15/2004 10:44:19 AM)

I believe that it highly depends on the drive in combination with the media.

The same for DVD+R against DVD-R.




scorpio -> RE: basic question (12/16/2004 6:34:23 AM)

My voat goes to DVD/-+R -------] NOW !!!

3 months earlier TO CD-R.

Improving DVD/RW drives and DVD disks bring to us better qualitty.
But, and now we have extremes, like PRINCO and BUDGET DVD disks, and NEC1300 and similar (older or not older) drives.
Thats reality.




Halcyon -> RE: basic question (12/27/2004 4:55:49 AM)

Yes, I agree it depends on drive and media.

However, one can take a random, even relatively crappy cd-r burner and almost marginal cd-media and still get away with it.

The resulting disc will be usable.

With DVD discs, once one strays away from Pioneer/BenQ/Nec/LG(/latest modified LiteOn or Plextor to some extent), the results can be completely unusable, even with quality media.

So, _on average_ cd-r media burning still produces disc of usable quality more likely than dvd burning.

That's my take at least :)




sambahill -> RE: basic question (12/29/2004 4:47:11 AM)

I was making a backup of a dvd movie (that I bought legally!!) using my dvd burner. I set it at 16x for my 8x DVD+R media. When I played it, it crashed at Chapter 17, I mean it wouldn't play just Chpt. 17. So I went to 18 and everything played fine. Could this be because I burned my media too fast???
