    Do you have the manufacturers ID code from those discs. You can get that info from dvd decrypter,nero's infotool,dvdinfopro,and dvdidentifier.That will tell us who made those actual discs.

    All I could locate from my source list is -1x,made by prodisc.

    Keep that burn speed slow.

    Here's a free version of dvdinfopro,it will tell you that id code and has a couple of scans so you can check for errors after your burn. It's a very handy program. Sometimes the free version expires,like last week,But then I downloaded it again. You can get it here: http://dvdinfopro.com

    The last disks I got with the optodisk code were liquid video and they were all crap, would not burn, the reviews on this media are correct :)

    Hey jaskaran, I did have problems with the free version of dvdinfopro. Sometimes it says something like it expired. I just delete it,wait a few days,and then re-download that free version again. I think I've done that 4 or 5 times this year.

    i used to use pcline cdr's. (from pcworld in uk). great cd's - crap discs - ie silver flakes all the time, whether new or not. i imagine their dvd's are crap too - i saw a reply above mentioning optodisc which i only ever read to be pants.
