    i just got the tdk 440 indi burner and i like it so far. i went out and bought a 10pk of memorex dvd-r. And they worked perfectly and then i was recommended the 100 spindle of dvd pro for 120 bucks so i just got them and now i am getting an error when i put them in saying

    E 14:54:14 Failed to Reserve Track! - Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format

    SO i am going to sell these to a buddy, how would i know that if i bought a pak of ritek that it would work in my burner and i wouldnt get stuck with 100 of these cds i cant use. Please help

    Well you could buy a starter pack for 16 bucks to test with. Includes:
    2 Princo 4X DVD-R

    2 Ritek 4X DVD-R

    2 Optodisc 4X DVD-R

    2 DupEZ 4X DVD-R

    2 Caldisc 4X DVD-R

    Downside is you get 2 of all these other noname brands.(to me anyways).Still seems like it's better to spend a little first than a whole lot of money at once on something you can't use. I'm in the same boat not alot of sites list compatability for my Memorex Duel X-1. I just ordered mine from here.

    The TDK is a very good burner and so you shouldn't have too many problems like that. The Ritek are the best of the cheap media and I certainly wouldn't recommend the Princo.
