I had experimented alot in the beginnig (around 2001) and I also
wound up finding that the Ritek brand discs (DVD-R is the only type I
use) are the most reliable.I found the best prices at Meritline.com.
Since I trade alot,I have gotten alot of feedback and most traders
have better luck with the dvd-r over dvd+r.

Best Buy sells FujiFilm brand 8x DVD-R discs from time to time - 50
pack for $19.99 if they have the rebate sale going on, which is
often, you just have to keep an eye out.

The same goes for me with my stand alone players, as well as my pc
dvd rom player.I thought it was the PowerDVD software but even when I
use the default Windows Media Player, the DVD+R burned discs will
often NOT play.

Most reports back state that DVD-R/RW play in more machines than DVD+R/RW.

If you need information about specific blanks and the chances of them
working/having problems, go here:


Good luck!
