There has been much discussion of the horrors of trying to burn with "cheap" media. Despite that, I have had good luck with the CompUSA DVD-R media, made by FMI. Through September 6, they are on sale for $7.99 for a 10 pack ($19.99-$12.00 "instant savings"). When I first got my Pioneer DVR-A06, I got some of these to experiment with. Though they are only 1x, they are good discs if speed is not a factor. I've been through three 10 packs with only 1 coaster (which might have been my fault).
