the best dvds are probably riteks. or if you're minted tayo yuden disks

cds you can kind of get away with anything really as long as they're branded

I agree RITEKS or RIDISC...but be careful where you buy from thou because at the moment the market has been flooded with a large batch of Ritek fakes....even the same serial number as Riteks on them. So only buy from a reliable source...

Another vote here for Ritek DVD-R
Been using them religiously since the 2x G03 dye

In my opinion, a CD is a CD these days. Can't remember the last time I burned a coaster.

Anything with a Riteck G05 dye for me for dvd_r

Again as the others have said with regards to cd_r - anything branded. Just dont touch overprints like tuff disks

Just bought another batch of MisterDVD DVD-R from Asda 8.98 for 25 discs, originally bought 5, and had no problems with any of them, so far that is wink.gif will post again after using these next 25, and tell you how many turned up ok.

But if you go to this site
<deleted by Max | REASON>
it will give you loads and loads of info, on disks tried out with different burners.

Extremely useful site, in fact I am going to post a seperate thread to recommend it laugh.gif

Taiyo Yuden 4x or 8x burned at 4x on either a Sony DRU-720A or a Pioneer DVR -107D set at a burn rate or 4x works great for me. Have burned over 400 with no coasters. Blanks can be bought for as little as $.025.

I'm now using Infiniti Pro Printables 16x and cant believe I never went over to them earlier. Brilliant disks and like others I can get them very cheap (25 Pack for 5)

Would highly recommend. thumbup.gif

We all have different experience in burning cd's and dvd's. In my mind I like Verbatim, as I never had a bad result thumbup.gif

best place for cd-r's i think's play.com, 14.99 for 100 maxwell 52X's 80 minutes as ya do, 14.99 delivered, that's like 15p a disc and you don't even have to move outta ya seat to get them, quality!!! out of about 500+ i've used of them and i ain't kidding, i don't re-call any dodgy ones that were down to the media, i had one that didn't work but that was down to me burning it wrongly.

anyways, as for DVD-R's, i recon Datasafe one's are pretty good, no matter if you buy their cheap media (usually the 4X one's) they work just as well as the 8X (clightly more expensive ones)
