Question

Can I use M-Discs instead of regular DVD/ CDs to burn any file using Roxio Creator NXT Pro or any earlier versions (I do have Roxio Creator 2012 Pro)?

Write

The normal laser energy employed to write DVDs or CDs cannot successfully write to the patented inorganic and synthetic materials used in the M-DISC

 

Read

Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. Most DVD drives that were manufactured after 2005 and almost all Blu-ray or BD drives support this format.

You will need special "M-Disc enabled" drives to write them. There are some drives available, but I haven't seen how much they will cost.

I just bought this drive not long ago and I believe it writes them.At least that's what it says.

I haven't had the occasion to try one yet.

Sorry to bump the thread but half of the question seems unanswered. Once I have an M-Disc enabled drive, will Roxio Creator have any trouble writing to an M-Disc?

NO ONE can answer it as none of us have the specialized drive & discs to even try it with... tbrewst has a drive that will READ an M-Disc so he cannot even try a Test Write with it ;)

 

If you got one AND you want to try it, Let Us Know!

 

Come to think of it, I don't recall anyone ever confirming writes to 128 BD discs :lol:

anglsxx, Roxio should work fine writing to an M-Disc.

 

The software you use will not make a difference in the lifetime of your data. Data lifetime comes from a properly-working drive engraving data on an M-Disc. The drive engraving function should not be affected by the software you use on the PC.

M-disc is a disc technology (1,000 year standard for longevity ) currently with 4.7GB M-Disc DVD and a 25 GB Blu-ray M-Disc.

 

Has nothing to do with BD-R DL-XL-TL disc's because they have no M-Disc Blu-ray Disc with that capacity.

 

M-DISC™ is the only data storage solution to withstand rigorous testing by the U.S. Department of Defense. Even today’s leading archival optical discs weren’t up to the challenge. M-DISC™ is resistant to extreme conditions of light, temperature, humidity and more. M-DISC™ cannot be overwritten, erased or corrupted by natural processes. Best of all, it’s compatible with any DVD drive, so you can access your data anywhere, anytime.

Only 80% Compatibility translates into 20% Incompatible...

You can try it but no guarantees ;)

 

Reminds me of the OCR claims of 80%. Sounds good until you proof read a document with 20% errors in it :huh:

So you are telling him that for sure Roxio will write to his M-Disc? I sure hope that you are right this time. It would be nice to find out if it really works.

Anglsxx asked about writing to an M-Disc with his M-Disc drive. It should work perfectly well.

 

There's an amount of 'guru drift' here, and Jim missed the fact that Terry has an M-Disc writer.

The 20% uncertainty that Jim talked about only applies to trying to write an M-Disc in an ordinary writer. It doesn't apply to engraving an M-Disc in the proper writer.

I hope that they do. The reason that I say that, I recall that an earlier Roxio version did not write to DVD RAM discs. It could be all Roxio versions will not. I do not know.

Your making a pretty big assumption considering you don't even have the equipment and any first hand experience whatsoever... Sort of winging it, are we :lol::D:lol:

 

I just ordered some so I will let you know when I have a chance ;)
