I have a problem and i need help. I bought a 30 pack of memorex dvd dl and they turned out to be the biggest waste of money. I used IMGBurn at 8x 6x 4x and 2,.4x. Before you ask i used a pack of verbatims at 2.4x and they were all succesful burns. I used the memorex at 8x 6x and 4x and i always get an IO error at the end and the disk sector could not be written. When i use XBC i always get a succesful burn but the disc plays but after an extended playthrough gives a dirty disc error. When i burn a 2.4x it reads but it WILL not start the game. now when i use XBC at 8x i get the same error as imgburn. Is there a specific way to burn memorex's???? i know verbatim is better but i have one succesful game with memorex. it was burning the whole time at 3.9x. out of 30, i already tanked 10 and had 1 succesful burn. i need tip on how to burn memorex's succesfuly. thanks uhh.gif

no trick to it man, either your dvd burner likes them or it doesn't.
i can tell you straight up, i have heard this same exact story about 30x
it seems most burners do not like memorex, because well they are junk.
bottom line the way to fix it is toss the memorex and buy some good disks.
if you must go cheep then try tdk

I think its highly dependant on your burner, I have a couple of friends who kept making coasters out of TDK discs, gave the rest to me and I burned them off fine. I am using a Samsung SH-203B which according to myce is a pretty good burner.

Trial and error I suppose!

memorex actually uses several media brands and rebrands them

To the OP

I suggest using Verbatims. You can get them on sale pretty cheap at sams club, they had 50 for $40, some people reported some stores selling 50 for $30!

I usually pick up fujifilm from futureshop, and price match the source lol
(fs always has stock)

$13.99 for 15 usually

I'd compare them to verbs without having to put out a shat load of money. I see verb 5 packs for almost $10 sometimes

I think it depends on the burner. I have used MANY memorex dl's and had zero problems with them. I use XBC and Imgburn. Burn at 2.4x. Of course I'm using an older pioneer drive.

You either buy Verbatim (I see xboxdawg says he uses memorex, but I still feel safest with high quality when its roughly the same price) for $30-40 a 50 pack on sale when they are available, or waste your money risking the quality of your backups.

I have had the same pioneer burner for well over 5 years, and used only verbatim and have yet to burn a coaster with the combination.

i always use a pioneer burner and always burn at 4x even on 8x discs well unless its a 2.4x disc
i have 3 different pioneer models and the all work the same

I really think it depends on your dvd burner. Different drives like different discs.

Just have to find ones that your drive is compatible with.

I've only used TDK for my backups. The first 2 sets were great with maybe 2 coasters. Recently though I've had about 75% coasters from them. I'm leaving TDK and joining the Verbatim group with my next DL purchase.
