Memorex CD-R: Posdisc!?!

Burn baby burn!

Memorex CD-R: Posdisc!?!

Postby TheCDBurner on Fri Jun 11, 2004 11:15 pm

A friend brought these over, can't say I've seen these before, max burn speed 40x on my 52327S.

And yes, they are Postech, not Prodisc.

My guess in the POS part is fairly accurate...

So, Postech, Prodisc, CMC, TY. Can't they just make up their freakin' minds!?!

EDIT: Postech, not Posdisc. My bad!

Max burn speed was 40x; she took the discs back with her, I'll try to snag one tomorrow to test and post a screen grab of.

And yeah, 100% sure: Posdisc.

:lol:

Yeah I don't like Memorex CD-R either...I've had good luck with Fuji,Maxell and Sony(usually made by TY).I've had mixed results with Verbatim(MCC),most burn with low C1/C2 errors but they don't last as long as TY.

GOOD quality from Sony!?! Wow, all the discs I've seen were CMC and had some of the worst write quality I've ever seen (bad even for CMC)...

I only buy Taiyo now for both CD and DVD. Have gone through about 1200 CD's and about 950 DVD-R 8X without a single failure. I'm astounded.

Got a disc back, here's a screen grab:

I can't do a quality check at the moment, I'm encoding a DVD. In about an hour or so I will...

Oh yeah, the dye is darker than a CMC disc, but not as dark as a TY disc.

Well, THIS is surprising:

Scanned on a 166S. I'll scan it again later with my 52327S; right now, it's not installed.

EDIT:
Their website: http://www.postech.com.tw/
Nothing's showing up under Opera; IE+all the stupid plug-ins may have more luck...

EDIT2:
Tests of non-Memorex Postech discs:

Ohh, it's Postech! They aren't new to the CD-R business. When you originally said Posdisc, I thought it was a brand new manufacturer...or a rip-off of Prodisc. Now I'm not so shocked anymore. :)

Problems with 52327?

Postby DeathStalker77 on Tue Jun 15, 2004 10:21 am

I have to double-check the discs now - I swear it said Prodisc. But EVERY one I burned blew out - at speeds as low as 32x. Forget ANY overburn whatsoever, at ANY speed.

I had the same problem with the Fuji discs when they switched to Prodisc.

Now I have another "major" manufacturer I can't/won't use. It didn't help with Fuji, but for the hell of it, I'm going to contact Memorex about the pathetic quality of these new 52x discs.

This is using QSOB firmware and Nero 5.5x.

It's getting to be a pain, but I'm going to stick with CDRs until dual-layer DVDRs are readily available at a reasonable price.
