Question M-Disc DVD burned and tests and durability

Postby gamemaniaco1987 on Sat Jul 31, 2021 8:43 pm

I have several M-Disc DVDs burned and stored with my files, to find out if this disc will have good long term storage durability do I need to test Disc Quality (jitter, PIE, PIE)? I only tested read test and it was 100% Good but these more advanced tests I didn't run

Doing those advanced tests will tell you if there are any issues with the disc now but, no matter what you do, its hard to know if there will be issues long term. More than likely, they'll be fine since they are M-Discs.

Does burning M-Disc generate too many jitter, PIE, PIF errors? is it necessary to test?

From my experience, the results with M-Disc media is pretty good. If you do a couple of tests with your drive and the writing quality looks good, chances are other discs will be good too.

The only test of the DVD M-Disc Verbatim I did was read test 100% good on nero discspeed and imgburn I didn't test jitter, PIE and PIF can they be high and the media die in a few years?
