Designed to store large HD video and audio files, Blu-Ray Recordable (BD-R) discs can handle up to 1080p resolution video and multiple audio formats. BD-R discs have a storage capacity of 25GB with 16X speed, allowing you to use fewer discs while backing up or duplicating HD digital recordings. BD-R media features HardCoat to guard against scratches, fingerprints and dust buildup, reducing playback and recording errors. One-time record discs ensure that your video, music or other information will not be erased. BD-Rs are ideal for recording HDTV programs or backing up your music collection.
Facts About Verbatim BD-R 25GB 16X Blu-ray Recordable Media Disc – 25 Pack Spindle
These are HTL. The BDA (bluray disk association) has a rule that manufactures are supposed to specifically say "LTH Type" on the package label if the disks are LTH (Verbatim seems good about that, but I’m not sure if all manufactures are). So in theory, if it doesn’t say LTH then it should be HTL. The HTL are consid… These are HTL.

So in theory, if it doesn’t say LTH then it should be HTL. The HTL are considered better and more long lasting. LTH has been proven to be less reliable. I think (am not sure) that another way to tell is: If you are looking at verbatim disks and you see the logo "AZO" then it’s probably HTL. In some charts I saw of various verbatim media, AZO and LTH were always together. In contrast, if you see "MABL" then you are probably looking at a better combination of materials. MABL is an inorganic recording material which should last longer than organic dyes. So… the fact that these disks (verbatim #98397) say "MABL" and do not say LTH means that these should be a long lasting medium. I bought a 50 disc spindle of these… but haven’t used them yet.
That’s a good question. These BD-R discs can only be authored using a Blu-Ray burner, and if authored as a video disc, they will work in most Blu-Ray players. I haven’t sent a ton of these out the door, but I’ve never heard any complaints.

There was no BD-R vs BD+R war. There was a competing technology, but Blu-Ray was up against HD DVDs, which was a completely different technology. Somehow, Blu-Ray won quickly and we averted WW III of the tech industry. As far as I know, there is no such thing as a BD+R.
I think you’ll have good success with these discs.
When burning discs, "coasters" are discs that fail to burn. Thus they are ruined and only suitable to use as table coasters.
Not on these disks. There are others which allow you to do that. They have uniformly white surfaces. These disks do not. You CAN write on them with an indelible ink marker but that is it.
It means the surface has our brand and logo and it is not a printable surface.
Thank you for your interest in our products.
these are BD-R so i set nero to speed disk can handle they work well if ya set to correct speed
Not exactly sure of the question. I use these as backup for my home movies. I copied all my home movies off my Video Camera (*.MTS files) and burned them as a DATA DISK. They play just fine.

I’m sure I could use a BLU-RAY authoring software as well and make all kinds of fancy menus and the sort, but this was just easier for me. If you’re talking copying a commercial BLU-RAY, I’m not sure. I haven’t tried and I think it’s a wee bit illegal. The other reason I purchased is the first time backup of my pictures and documents ‘just in case’ of a fatal HDD crash. Since then I do an incremental backup on a smaller media (DVD) as not to waste a whole BLU-RAY disc every month (or so).
You have to have a Blu-ray player/ recorder- your regular DVD player will not recognize it.
You don’t indicate what kind of Sony player you have, but it must be a blu-ray player for these discs to play on it!

A double layer dvd holds about 8.5 GB of continuous information. A blue- disc can hold about 25 GB or more of information.

With the advent of solid state storage devices and compression codecs, the blue- ray movie disc is being phased out as a movie media. Blue-ray discs can hold data, but hard drives are more efficient.

The ones I ordered say 16x on them, I have an older burner, a Pioneer BDR-205 (12x max) and IMGBurn says it supports up to 10x with these discs

right click the video file and view properties .
"File Size On Disc" is NOT the size of the file,
as this includes the size of the file system too .
From what you have said , the file should fit .
Right click the blu-ray disc icon and see that
window’s reports a blank disc with a

Different discs , harddrives , CD media and files are
typically reported by windows in different ways , NOT consistant .
12 more gig bytes ? is way off the mark .
continue to look into it .
something is certainly not right here .
I could nevere get them to go beyond 25 GB in any case.
Found a chart on the internet that shows that these are Full MID: VERBAT-IMe-000. Sorry, but I have no way to verify this.

I’ve bought several of these in both 25-pk spindles and a 50-pk spindle once. To me, Blank Media is very much “You get what you pay for” and SONY and Verbatim are the only optical media I will buy. Some things of note though: 1) it’s really closer to 23GB of free space when you burn these, due to binary counting. 2) Many people talk of coasters but sometimes if you burn them at the highest speed your software can burn, that will make them more prone to burn errors. Therefore I generally burn at a slower speed and I probably have a 99% success rate as a result.
In closing, highly recommend!
On my new computer build, I wanted a Blu Ray player/recorder. Yea some people say use a thumb drive. But they seem to fail a lot. Good for temperary or file transfers.
As a third backup, I use these, especially for Pictures and Documents. I put the files there and place them in my Safety Deposit Box. At the cost per unit, it works great, So I have external hard drives, some thumb drives, and these. Works fine for me.
Best discs I’ve ever used PERIOD. These BD-R are thicker and more rigid than competitors, less flimsy feeling compared to Memorex. The scratch coating on these makes them impervious to scratches. I’ve taken keys to them just to see if the scratch resistance was as good as advertised. It’s better than I could have expected. After going at them with keys, a few rubs on my shirt, and you can’t even tell the disc has been touched. If you’re getting bad burns with these, you either got the LTH version or you need a new burner. I’ve burned over 300 of these and have yet to have a bad burn. Shelf life is supposed to be 25 years, compared to 3-5 years for DVD+R. 23.3GB of space on data disc. Best media for archiving. There’s no need to shop around anymore. Just get these!!!!
I’ve used 3 Verbatim BD-R 50 Gb Discs before, and my Burning ROM Software gave my 100% good sectors. With this package I bought from Amazon, I had no bad sectors in the first Disc, but got 128 bad sectors in the second Back-up. What I did is that my Software reports the name of the file which was saved on the bad sectors area, so I recorded that file in a DVD, along with a few other files. I recorded a 3rd Back-up and was reported 100% fine. In large Data quantities discs as this ones, is possible to have some bad or damaged sectors on a few discs. Is not supposed to happen too often, but it can happen. That’s why I use this software that verifies every sector after burning disc, and reports any errors. You still can use the data, but if you save software on bad sectors, your backed-up software possibly will not work fine. If you save a Word document, you may have a few or more bad data. But I’ve used Verbatim Discs since 2 years ago, and I’ve find that they are reliable. As I said, depending on your hardware, and other factors, in a few discs, among several ones, you may find one or two with damaged or bad sectors, but I understand this discs have warranty, so you can check the information on the box, if you got a package with many discs with bad or damaged sectors, if you want to claim the warranty, I understand you can, but if it’s only one out of 10 discs, you may not want to lose time, and efforts claiming the warranty for that disc.
So, in summary, so far, 2 out of 3 discs have been 100% fine, so I pray when I finished backing-up my documents and data, I’ll have no more bad or damaged sectors.
I recommend Verbatim Discs very much. I’ve burned more than 100 25 Gb BD-R Discs, and 6 50 Gb ones, so about 95% have been 100% Good. Just try to use software that verifies your burned discs, and if you want to be sure, and have not verifying software, check your data, you have any other way to verify your data, though 50 Gb is much data to check, so, good luck!
These are the first Blu-ray recordable discs I’ve ever used, and I’m really glad I bought them. I’ve trusted Verbatim media for 20 years now, and burned CDs I made with their discs are still good today!
These Blu-ray Discs are well made and I only had one “coaster” which was likely my error. Since the disc wasn’t usable, I decided to test the disc surface myself. I tried several things (pens, scissors, fingernails), and they held up as well as I expected. I think if you store your disc properly, they will last many years.
I will definitely buy these again next time I need blu ray recordable discs.
I bought a spindle of these several months ago, in addition to a spindle of single layer. The single layer discs I had no problems with. When I tried to burn with these however, I kept getting raised bubbles appearing on the underside of the disk. The first disk I burned was readable, but when examined after I had problems with the others I noticed it too had bubbles, just not as many. The next three I burned in a row were completely unusable, and everywhere it tried to burn the 2nd layer produced the bubbles (note the inside of the disk is free of them). Posting pictures to demonstrate, including a before/after pic to show they were not present until after I attempted to write the disc.
I even tried picking a disc from the middle of the spindle in case only the top ones were afflicted but got the same result. Not sure if I got a bad batch or if these simply have compatibility issues with my drive but I am extremely dissatisfied, and especially annoyed as I only realized the discs were defective when it was far too late to return them.
Update: The next morning I decided to test again, as when I initially burned I let the drive pick the speed under the assumption that it would not go over the recommended maximum. I had noticed that it was burning at 8x speed rather than 6x. The first test I again inadvertently forgot to specify the speed, but despite that got much better results, only a few bubbles around the outer rim. The other tests went almost flawlessly. I burned at 4x, and while there was one or two bubbles at the edge, the disc was readable. The 6x disc turned out similarly, and both passed verification. I then tried burning at 2x (actually specified 1x but it seemed to be running at 2x during the burn), and while this disc took forever to burn the end result was pristine, no bubbles at all could be found on the disc
Overall I think the initial poor results may have been caused by a combination of the program burning faster than the disc could handle, and possibly the drive warming up over time (as both DL discs that were the 1st burned of the day turned out OK even at full speed, but each subsequent disc had some degree of bubbling). I am using an LG drive and the linux command line program xorriso to perform the burns.
This is my second order of this Verbatim brand of blank Blu-rays. These BD-R are pretty good quality. I haven’t had one disc fail on me yet. I tested every kind of file like videos, pictures, documents, movies, and other data and they work just fine. I’ll make a future review if I get any problems or issues with the discs. I’m curious about the longevity of these discs. I usually make a second back up of my data so I got two copies of everything on a second disc. I’m only wondering how long like how many years until these discs degrade, rot and decay. I’ll do more tests later but so far no problems.
Delivered in 5 days to middle east, burning with pioneer seems yielding stable result, still using 4x & 6x speed to get best result so far. The disc seems thick to the feel and the data side has a brownish color with logo top side. MID – VerbatIMe. Have just use a couple of disc, filling the data around 22.5~22.9 to avoid the scan spike at the end burn.
You just can’t go wrong with Verbatim.
I’ve tried cheaper brands of discs many, many times and after all the defective discs, bad burns and the time wasted on them, they never really wind up saving me any money in the end–and I’ll never get the lifespan of my burner that’s been wasted on all the bad discs back!
I always come back to Verbatim where the disc quality is excellent and they pretty much ALWAYS work the way they’re supposed to.
Why try to burn something two or three times before discovering the discs you purchased are junk? Just use Verbatim discs and burn once and reliably every time!
Cheap discs just aren’t worth the wasted time and money.
