    Since the Ritek Ridata I've been using are made by RICOHJPN (the JPN is for Japan)and I've had 89 successful burns in a row with them. I'd add them to that list as well.

    Yes , I don't use +R media but Ricoh are good too [quite right].

    How can offer to suggest a place to buy hermeet1 when we don't knnow where you live/reside (that's really very important eh - lol)
    For instance I buy from http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk but that might not be the place for you if you're in USA [for example].
    Newegg or Meritline are apparently good for US residents ;-)
