Pioneer 109 Buffalo 8.50FW DL Scan

Postby seaegg on Fri May 27, 2005 11:42 am

This is a scan of a burn I did with Pioneer 109 using the buffalo FW 8.50. The disc is a Memorex Dual Layer from a 3 pack I bought at Future Shop. This is by far and I mean far the best burn I've ever got using this media. The BenQ 1620 scores around 35 to 4o with this media even though in all fairness the resultant discs play back fine in all my DVD Players.

Yeah the Pioneer will only burn those discs at 2.4x. I gotta say I'm pleased. I was a bit nervous using the Pio to burn it because for me it's been the most disappointing burner I've ever owned but it came up trumps. The other nice thing is those discs are readily available in my area.

Could you please post the qulity scan of the disk that you burnt with the BenQ 1620? I'm thinking about getting some of these Memorex DLs for my BenQ. Thanks.

Oh I deleted those pics long ago but if my memory serves me correct I think I posted them on CD Freaks forum.

Fuji 8x DVD+R burned at 8x with Pioneer 1.09 using Buffalo FW 8.50. Not bad.

Yeah it's not bad at all. I was beginning to despair with my Pio and was going to sell it and get another BenQ but I think it's now a keeper. I should also note because I burn a lot I sometimes defrag 2 to 3 times a day. I buy a lot of old school Kung Fu and Cricket DVDs remaster them using TMPGEnc and then sell the originals. My copies look better than the originals and have way better quality scan scores for one thing. This takes a lot of time I know and it frags my drive so I'll never have a situation where I burn with a fragged drive because I'm a defrag nut. My sole aim is best quality so time doesn't matter to me. I really should build a dedicated system for this but my wife would kill me, especially since we're starting a whole slew of home renovations right now. :lol:

Another OT question- do you use the standard Windows defragger? I defragged a 32 GiB partition over the weekend and it took 6 hours. :evil:

First time. It's on a drive I've had for about a year. I've kept big images on it and moved some elsewhere, so I expected that defragmentation would be necessary. But 6 hours?

I´m not a fan of defragging, but I know the time depends on the speed of the HDD (seek times and transfer rate) and the free space of the HDD
