Product Description

Size:DVD 10pk  |  Color:DVD

The unique materials used in the M-DISC requires a new disc drive technology to engrave data permanently. The M-DISC Duplicator have been designed and optimized to work with M-DISC as one to etch data into the permanent synthetic stone layers within the M-DISC. Archival-quality DVDs are known to randomly fail leading to permanent data loss. The major failure mechanism is rooted within the data layer, the very core of recordable DVD technology. This layer consists of organic dyes that are chemically altered when data is written. Information is "burned" into the disc by creating light or bleached spots. The data is the contrast between light and dark spots. However, the dark spots fade over time, nullifying the burning process. This is why natural processes corrupt the data on the DVD in just a few short years. The National Archives warns that the shelf life of a regular DVD is only 2-5 years The M-DISC is constructed of inorganic, synthetic materials that preserve data forever. These materials cannot be overwritten, erased, or corrupted by natural processes. It is as if data were etched in "stone." In addition to preserving data permanently, the M-DISC is designed to be backward compatible with standard DVD players. Once data is store on the M-DISC it is readily accessible using a common DVD players.

I decided to order a small quantity of these from Amazon to try in a new LG WH12LS39 disc writer that is specifically recommended for these new technology M-Discs. I burnt about 4GB of photos to the disc and it worked OK. The data did verify after the burn. But then the surprise: Upon re-insertion, the LG disc drive did not recognize the disc it just created and verified! Inserted the disc about 10 times and found that it was recognized about 70% of the time. The same drive has no difficulty recognizing discs of the regular +R or -R technology, it is apparantly the new M-discs that create problems. However, once the disc is recognized on insertion, there is no difficulty reading the data.

I then tried the disc in another 6 disc readers to which I have access. One reader, a clunky old Samsung external DVD drive, has no difficulty recognizing the disc at all. But one of the readers totally failed to work with it. The other readers will recognize it, but not 100% of the time. You may have to insert it more than once before it will work.

As far as I am concerned, the jury is still out on the new M-disc technology. Yes, the discs are supposed to last forever (the manufacturer boasts a 1,000 year life span), but the discs are very expensive. It may be better to wait for the price to come down, as it always does with new technology in the computer world.

Good: Have yet to burn a coaster out of some 55 M-DISCs used to date. I obviously can't vouch for their durability, but the technology and the manufacturer's and Department of Defense's tests are compelling. At the very least I'm confident that these discs will last a lot longer than even premium standard DVD-Rs.

Bad: Know that these discs are NOT 100% compatible with standard DVD drives. Both of my laptops (dual-layer DVD-RW / Blu-ray-R) have yet to successfully read a M-DISC, and only one of the three internal desktop drives I tested will read them reliably. On the other hand, both my DVD players (LG Blu-ray) read them without problems, as did a friend's external drive (Sony DVD-R, Blu-ray-R) I borrowed for testing, and also, as one would expect, the M-DISC burner itself.

This is not by any means a deal-breaker. I can always plug in the burner when I need to read a disc, which won't be often. It IS, however, fair warning to make sure your discs will read on the devices you need to read them with before committing to M-DISC for storing important stuff.

It's likely that M-DISC is a little ahead of the technology curve, and older drives just aren't up to the task. Fair enough; I'll just make sure that any new devices I buy are M-DISC compatible up front. Still, discovering that compatibility wasn't quite as robust as claimed for a disc I planned to use for archiving was a bit unsettling. Other than this, however, I'm satisfied with the product, and remain confident of its durability. Four stars for now; will award the fifth if and when these things rescue me from a crashed hard drive. ;)

Size: DVD 10pkColor: DVD Verified Purchase
I only learned of these discs after receiving a new LG Electronics 14x SATA Blu-ray Internal Rewriter without Software, Black (WH14NS40). I figured I should investigate this disc and read up on it.

The discs use a "rock like" recording layer - similar to obsidian - which is physically burned and pitted using a high powered laser, rather than an organic dye being changed with a low power laser. This, combined with the lack of a reflective layer (no metal to break down) makes this disc basically impervious to aging. In fact, the 1000 year claim is only because the plastic backing will break down - they claim 10,000 years for the actual recording material!

Do you want to burn everything on these? Well, you might want to, but you shouldn't. The price is just too high right now (around $3/disc). But for important documents, photos, etc. - yes. Without question. The only limitation is the file size - single layer DVD. Because the recording material is burned/etched with a laser, dual layer recording is most likely something we will never see. 25 GB Blu-Ray discs are in the works - you'll need a new burner though, as the high powered laser wouldn't be in existing Blu-Ray lasers (remember they don't use the same one as DVDs/CDs).

Another problem is the lack of cases in the spindle. These discs can't really be written on (at least I don't think they can) and there's no label to speak of. A disc case is a must for long term storage.

Testing:

I sacrificed a disc just for you, Amazon. I duplicated a DVD-Video onto it so I can test it properly on the various drives around my place.

I ordered a pack of ten of these for use with a MDisc LG drive I purchased. Burning the discs was no different than any other discs I have burned, it uses the same programs, methods, etc. making the process easy. I have burned 7 discs so far with no problems and the discs have proven to be readable in several drives in several computers and my Sony BDP. None of the issues mentioned in other reviews.

It's only been a couple of months since burning the first but no problems yet on reading them...if I can remember to update the post in 50 years, I''ll let you all know if they are still working!
