    I want to use quality discs for my PS2 backups, like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden, but you can only order them online right? And I can't do that. So what media do you guys recommend that I can get from like Fry's and/or Micro Center? I don't want to use Memorex DVD-R x16 anymore, even though it works, afraid it will mess up.. -Dr. Evil quote quote style- "Zeh laser."

    you should be able to get verbatims from the stores, but not TY's, if they dont have any of those i would go for some sonys.

    if you can find Sony or Fujiflim DVD+R or DVD-R 8x media thats "Made In Japan" thoses will code out as Taiyo Yuden ,so YES you can buy TY in store. and almost every store carries Verbatim so there easy to find.

    most the time the Sony will be the best bet MIT Fujifilm code out as prodisc which suck bad but as said if you can fine them MIJ there TYs but thats unlikely

    So, where should I go to get the discs, Micro center, Fry's, or Best Buy? Which do you think will have more variety and quality? And is 16x okay if they're the only ones I can find? Thanks.
