    Choice DVD-R 1x and Bulkpaq DVD-R 1x have worked so far fine, 75 burned, all worked. Pioneer 454 is just slightly picky with one thing -- I've noticed that you need to burn in DVD UDF format, using UDF 1.02, to get the discs accurately working. (most of the burning guides suggest DVD ISO/UDF format, which is preferred for most players, but not with 454).

    I burn my discs with Pioneer A05.

    i tried buring a movie on a DVDRW and it wasnt having none of it.

    I've used latest Nero for burning, with the settings I mentioned earlier. Haven't tried any RWs on the 454 yet.

    I tried nero again burning at UDF 1.02 and the DVDRW worked fine, i just need a decent uk supplier now for bulk lot and good postage rates.

    also ive seen lots of complaints abuot bulkpaq on these and other forums,

    but i checked one i got as a test from my local computer shop and the nero cdspeed test showed it as a TDK and form my experience they are pretty good media, is this common that bulqpak are just rebranded TDK?

    and whats the difference between green and purple top?

    TIA
