Ridisc Media Tests

7. DVD+R 16X ( CMC MAG M01)


We burned 4315MB of a DVD-Video compilation on 24 different DVD burners. We used the maximum allowed writing speed for each drive. Due to firmware limitations of some drives, we saw some 12X burning speeds or even 4X. Notice that not all the drives were capable of 16X recording and so we were interested in seeing their performance with the specific discs.

First, we transferred the movie to the hard disc with DVD Decrypter in DVD-Video format. Then, we used the latest version of Nero Burning Rom software to burn the VIDEO_TS file to the discs. More information about each burner, its respective firmware revision as well as the speed and the time needed for a complete burn are given in the following table. Click on the name of a drive below to go to the quality scans or use the article navigator.
