I use ProDiscs and Ritek/Ridata. Last batch of ProDiscs however weren't that great so I may go exclusively with Ridata from here on in.

If anybody's interested, there's a nifty piece of software called SmartBurn that you can download for free. It's just a tiny program and if you put a disc into your drive and run it, it will tell you who manufactured it. I was shocked to put in a "TDK" disc and find that it was actually a Ritek! Haven't boughten "name brand" media since.

I use Maxell and/or Verbatim - both provide good, reliable results. If anybody gets anything other than that from me, it would be because I'm trading off the originals I received from other traders.

Do anyone have a good source for Panasonic DVD-Rams? I like to record on them and then transfer to a DVD-R for trading and personal use. Thanks

I use BeAll Blank Media. I have always had good luck with these disks , and I read that they are also used by government agencies. I buy them in 100 packs from www.MeritLine.com I have used this company and this brand of disk since 2001. I will never change brands now , I have never had a problem yet.

I like:
1. TDK
2. Maxell
3. Philips

all have been pretty much without issue, and very low error rate.


however, recently tried:
1. Office Depot Dash R's
2. Staples PLus and Dash R's
3. CompUSA Plus and Dash R's
AND ON all 3 had a zero error rate in 100 discs used. Excellent for store brands and turns out they are really Ridata and TY made, so you never know on discs.

I just try to avoid Fuji and really no name cheapies

Well, some Fuji DVD media is TY. I've had excellent results with Fuji/TY (look for the made in Japan on the label).

How do you figure out who makes the store brand discs? Thanks

Use can use DVD Decrypter to view the disc's Manufacturer ID code, or also DVD InfoPro will display it.

I have bought HP 8x & KyperMedia 4x and never had any problems.
Sometimes on the Kypermedia it seems to get a little jagged here and there on certain burns, but 95% look great to me.. They are always the ones on sale for $29.00 for 100 at the local stores.
Anyone have any opinions on these brands or what to look for when buying blank dvd's,, I always thought a dvd+r was a dvd+r for the most part, what makes some better then others, I mean that much where they can double, triple that price?
