    You could, but as most of the forum members here recommend verbatim because of their reliability. Most other companies use cheap dye on their media (memorex being one of the worst). You may go through a stack of 50 verbatim discs and have zero coasters. Try a stack of memorex. More than likely, you'll have a stack of 50 cheap discs and have about 20 coasters out of those 50. Verbatim cost more, but are well worth the investment. So the answer to your question is yes, but wouldn't you rather have quality media that will last years and years?

    yes but you could get bad burns and burn your xbox laser out faster using cheap discs. i use cheap dvd+r dl and not had many bad burns and 2 years later the box still plays them fine. just never burn to fast. i always burn at 2.4x

    I primarily use verbs, but have tried ridata with no problems. With the old xbox I tried using cheap dvds when starting out, and would get lag with cut scenes, and disk errors a lot. I've burnt 100's of games using verbs and never had a problem. Just always burn at 2.4x.

    verbs are the best of the best but really expensive, as the saying goes you get what you pay for. i use cheap but not to cheap. midrange price is what i go for

    this topic had been beat to death in these forums, the thing that gets me the most of all is when people say verbs are expensive, i pay $1 per disc, how is that expensive? a new game costs 60 dollars, other brand discs always mess up, if not when you burn them, then later on as they are played.
