I just don't want to waste all my time backing up on this media if it's not worth it. I bought these disk without researching (I've researched now) and I'm stuck with it. I've backed up a few movies, all with no errors on it. I have RICOH disks and I now know the packing differences. From what I get, Memorex is hit and miss with who makes the disk, but if I stick with RICOH will I be safe? Also, should I use DVD-R which I think is more compatible with more players,eg, PS2, older standalones and newer standalones? Thanks guys.
