    Have you used 2 different medias to back up the same project and 1 worked and one didn't? Is that what you're saying?

    Hi,

    Memorex buys from different manufacurers and slaps their name on it so you never know with certainty what you're going to get.

    Could you run one of your discs through DVD Identifier and let us know the manufacturer ID?

    I was using Maxwell DVD+RW but ran out so went to Memorex...The manufacturer ID is (CMC MAG. AFI ) Then Manufacturer name is ( CMC MAGNETICS CORP ).. My dvd burner is a INDIDVD TDK and will read all dvd media..
    Thanks again.
