    Please enter your media that you use or have used and score them out of 5 with the writer you use. That way we can get an idea of what media works best with what writer. I will do a chart to replace the one at http://www.chrismccann.co.uk/dvdr_compatibility.htm

    Traxdata Ritek 4x - 5/5 - Never had a problem
    Clone Disc Ritek 4x - 5/5 Never had a problem
    RiDATA Ritek 4x - Great Value and same disc as Traxdata
    White Label 4x - 0/5 - Damn discs never worked
    Princo Branded 1-4x - 3/5 - Better than Datawrite Yellow Princo but wouldnt buy them
    Datawrite White Ritek 4x - 4/5 - decent enough disc - great price, few skips
    O1ne 4x - 4/5 - No problems, a Datasafe Brand - Leadata manufactured

    I am currently using a Pioneer 106D v1.07.
    I have used:
    Ritek Branded @ 4x = 5/5, every blank has been spot on!

    Not many people seem to have seen the Ritek Branded ones and get confused when i mention them, so just for the Record the Top of the DVD is purple and says "Ritek" - it doesnt say datasafe or arita, or ridata ity says "ritek" - i think these are probably the most expensive in the range??
