    Good media, but bad price.
    You can get those at best buy for around 40 bucks per hundred.
    You have to buy larger bulks, to get the good price.

    If you got a bestbuy store nearby, you can get the 50 packs for $20.Seems like they are always on sale there,but too far for me to go.
    40 cents apiece when on sale.

    Very good media, sony +1x-8x that were made in japan were also coding out as Yuden000-to2.

    They are probably like staples and office depot, you have to get there on sunday-first day of their sale.

    We might have to start a Cabin Fever thread in the safety valve forum.

    You've got to go with the spindle packs. You paid over a dollar per disk. Even at regular price, the spindles are cheaper than that per disk.

    If you have other stores around, they should match the prices.

    Is Fuji really a good media? I am having troubles getting my DVD-R's to play on my Oritron DVD4119 player. I called them and they said I need to "finalize" the disc before it would play. Now, I'm not the smartest person in the world, but this sounded like a line to me. Any thoughts?

    The fuji's made in japan are very good,they usually I.D. as taiyo yuden or yuden,the ones not made in japan, are either prodisc or fujifilm,not nearly as good.
    The statement about the discs not being finalized, is definitely a line.All burning programs finalize the disc after the burn is done.Unless your talking about a dvd recorder standalone,then you have the option when to finalize.

    Some burners just simply dont like some media.This seems to be true in your case.Stick with what works for you.
    good luck
