Fully agree with Jesterrace on this.
The media is important in more ways than we think when we start burning CD/DVD.
It is like the old tapes we used to record music (yes I am an old man). We all knew that poor quality meant that after a few months sound would change compare to better quality tapes. Well DVD are not different, they may work today but try them in 6 months and you may be out of luck if you used a pood quality DVD.
If you are interested by this you should check CDFreaks
which is to burning DVD what XBOX-SCene is to the XBOX.
You will find that whether you go Pioneer 108 (or 111) or Liteon165H6S, it will have less impact on the burn than using poor vs high quality DVD.
If I remember correctly, Jesterrace is a moderator of CDfreaks and he probably knows more about burning than most of us will ever know, his post is right on.
As for the Brand issue, I had pioneers 04, 06, 08; but my last burner I decided to go Liteon 165H6S. I beleive both are great burner and you can't go wrong with either.
Reason I went liteon is the community and the scanning abilities: The liteon community at cdfreaks is one of the most active with several tools to Backup firmware, change designated media speed...test firmware in unofficial collaboration with Liteon. On top of this you can use software like nero CD/DVDspeed to scan your burns and assess of how the burn went. For example Pioneer are not recognize as good drive to scan.
So if you are interested by that, you will be extremely happy with a liteon. If not they are both great burners.
This is a scan
of a Backup I did yesterday. That, for a DL is a very good results
Just to make sure I understand, the booktype should be set to DVD-ROM ?
I can just set that in DVD decryptor then burn with clone cd?
By the way the answer to that is yes
all meant with the highest respect.
