    i have ridata 4x dvd-r and all my backups worked very well.

    But why would you get 8x when your not going to burn anything at that speed. maybe you do but it's a bad idea.

    san andreas is a game which constanly reads off the disc

    use good quality dvd+r and you will have no problems
    dvd+r tend to work better for such games

    you never know who makes them

    the thing with dvd's which you must remember is that companies,and i mean big companies sub contract the making of dvd's out to smaller/poor quality manufactures
    so you never know what you are buying
    look on the site address i gave you
    look for branded disc's
    the tayio yuden(pardon the spelling) ones are expensive.but execellent
    tdk+r are made by tdk

    like you said,"i have some dvd's,but they are not made by the people on the label"

    pazza1 DVD dash R or DVD plus R,,neither is better than the other.there different formats is all. so it just depends on the burner and players etc,you are using.

    i have never had any problems with Ridata dvd media, they are cheap but reliable in my experiences

    the riadatas make playable games but they take ages to load and some animation at the beginning is very jumpy it plays a bit of it stops and plays another bit also the loading of missions sometimes never happens and if it does load it takes about 3 times the time of the original but once in the game it is ok i might buy some imation dvd+r £9.99 for 25 from pcworld and see what happens i have read an thread on here that someone put san andreas on an imation and it worked perfect

    just done a surface scan with nero cd-dvd speed and here are the results of the ridatas with nightfire on
    Good: 100.00 %
    Damaged: 0.00 %
    Unreadable: 0.00 %
