    Bought a 50pc spindle of these on Ebay, and they are crap!
    Will not work at all on my GoVideo DVD Recorder VR5940 (New model).
    Will only work 20% of the time on my Sony Vaio with a Pioneer dvr-107D drive with new firmware that is supposed to support 8X writing. Will not write at all with 8X or 6X. Writes most of disk and crashes with errors. If I write at 4X, then 1 out of every 5 disks or so can be written without fatal errors.
    More coasters & frisbees.

    Thanks. Never had problems on EBay before, and have saved tons of dough, so... had to eventually happen.
    Would send them back, but the shipping costs almost as much as the discs.
    Maybe I'll just stick to DVD+R and DVD+RW discs. Bought these mainly for the White Tops.

    Think I'll stick with DVD+RW for the GOVideo DVD recorder. These offer more features anyway, and are still a good deal less than $1 each.
