    LOL not the most popular brand Memorex is a brand name that has a number of different media producers' Some are good most, are crap. And so some folk will say it's a 'good product' but they are in the minority. (I'm a neutral LOL)

    see the media forum

    happy burning gringle.

    I would highly urge you to try getting some different media. Memorex is the absolute worst period......

    Buying Online
    Taiyo Yuden (genuine TY’s there are fakes out there so beware)
    Ritek G04 brand these would be the x4 disks again beware of fakes
    Prodisc 2nd class media, but newer media x8 seems to work well for people

    Buying at the store (Best Buy, Office Depot, Wal-Mart ect.)
    Fuji film – Manufactured by Taiyo Yuden, MCC, Ricoh Japan, Prodisc, Fuji Film all fairly good manufacturers
    Maxell – Manufactured by Maxwell, Ritek, RicohJapan, Taiyo Yuden
    TDK – Manufactured by TDK, Ritek, RicohJapan, Maxwell, MCC, CMC Beware of the CMC brand
    Verbatim – MCC, CMC, TY, RicohJapan, Ritek again beware of CMC which it seems Verbatim is using more frequently lately.
    Sony - RicohJapan, MCC, Sony

    Note: A good rule of thumb when purchasing your media in the store is to look for “made in Japan or Singapore” stay away from “made in Taiwan or Hong Kong” When buying online always try and get “Branded” media this way you can be sure you are getting the genuine article. There is an exception to that rule and it would be Taiyo Yuden disks. You just need to buy from a reputable dealer when buying online. Here are a few I have bought from with good experience. Of course it isn’t going to be the same for everyone.

    Supermediastore.com – Rated number 1 just about anywhere you look.
    Rima.com – Fast and cheap good service
    Mertline.com – Little slower on shipping, but quality media

    Ones you should stay clear of
    Shop4tech.com – Let’s just say you get what you pay for.. I received fake TY’s from them

    Thank you so much! Thats a lot of info you gave me... I am new and just want to back up my movies and thought it would be as easy as just putting my movie in one drive and a Blank in the other drive and using DVDXCopy....... Bang... instant back up..... thanks again... do i have to use all those encrypters and shrinkers and all that??? Thanks again... I am going to get some of the disks you mentioned and hopefully it will make it easier to play my backup movie in my DVD player rather than my computer....

    I own two toshiba dvd players, and I can tell you they are very sensitive to errors and do not much like memorex disks especially if burned by DVDXcopy, try the brands bbmayo gave you. I have to redo my Memorex backups because of this practice.
