Burning a ValueDisc 25GB Blu-Ray Disc in the Pioneer BDR-2212 drive – Part 2

Burning a ValueDisc 25GB Blu-Ray Disc in the Pioneer BDR-2212 drive – Part 2

Hi everyone,

In this post, we will see how well the Pioneer BDR-2212 drive can burn a ValueDisc 25GB BD-R disc at a speed of 6x.

This time, I used ImgBurn to initiate the burn:

The disc was burned and verified successfully:

Here is how the surface looks when burned at 6x in this drive:

ValueDisc 25GB BD-R Burned Surface on Pioneer BDR-2212 at 6x

The surface looks very smooth. Overall, this drive seems to burn Blu-Ray discs with really smooth-looking surface.

Quality Scan

The disc scanned better than the 12x burn. The numbers are lower, but still not at the amount that the Panasonic drive can offer for this speed. We can also see that the LG tolerated it better than the LiteOn drive.

Conclusion

At 6x, we get a better result than when the disc is burned at 12x. The time it takes to burn the disc is increased by about 5 more minutes, taking 15 to 18 minutes to burn it (This compilation had several .mpd files so the drive was stopping frequently while the buffers recovered, taking a bit more to burn). If you don’t mind taking a few more minutes, you can reliably use this speed with these discs in this drive.

You can purchase these discs and the Pioneer drive on Amazon at the following links:

Hi everyone,

Today, we will be burning a ValueDisc BD-R disc in the Pioneer BDR-2212 drive:

This drive is able to burn these discs at up to 12x. This will be the speed used on this post:

CMCMAG-BA5-000 on Pioneer BDR-2212

Burning a disc in this drive at its maximum speed takes less than 12 minutes:

Disc verification is successful:

Overall, it takes less than 23 minutes to burn and verify a single disc at 12x.

Here is the disc burned surface:

Quality Scans

I scanned the disc in my LiteOn iHBS112 and LG WH16NS58. While the disc is perfectly readable, we can see how the numbers are huge as the disc progresses toward the end:

It does seem, however, that the LG drive numbers are less than the LiteOn drive by about a half.

Conclusion

Burning these discs in the Pioneer BDR-2212 drive is really fast, taking less than 12 minutes for just burning it, and less than 23 minutes for burning and verification. However, while the time it takes to burn a disc is small, the disc quality suffers at this speed. There are no negative consequences when reading back the disc in none of my drives, and the data is all readable. Whether to use this maximum speed in this drive is up to you, according to the above images.

Hi everyone,

Today, we will be looking at the 50-disc spindle Blu-Ray Recordable discs from ValueDisc and burning it in the Panasonic UJ-260 drive.

These are White Inkjet Printable discs, so they have a printable surface:

The data side from these discs are dark grey colored:

Here is a quick comparison of the disc compared with the previously-reviewed SmartBuy BD-R discs:

As you can see, there is a significant difference in the data surface.

The media code of these discs is CMCMAG-BA5-000:

Burning in the Panasonic UJ-260

We will be burning these discs in the Panasonic UJ-260 drive:

This drive can burn these discs at 2x and 6x. I burned a disc using Nero at the maximum speed, to which it was successfully doing, although it burned it at 2x instead of the 6x speed it should have burned:

The disc verification was also successful:

Here is the disc burned surface:

Both my LiteOn and LG WH16NS58 drives seem to agree in that this is a great burn:

I burned another disc again, and on that one, the drive decided to burn at the full 6x speed:

This disc also verified correctly:

My LG drive also thinks this is a great burn:

For this disc, I forgot to scan it on the LiteOn drive, but we can see in the above image that the disc has burned fine, with a bit of increases in the numbers as it progresses but nothing worrying.

Conclusion

The Panasonic UJ-260 can successfully burn and verify these discs at up to 6x, altough it may sometimes burn a disc at just 2x. The quality seems to be very good. Another Media Code that the drive can handle with great results.

In the next posts we will see how this disc burned in the LiteOn iHBS112 and in the Pioneer BDR-2212 drives.
