    Hi,

    Verbatim is the best choice if you can get it.

    I heard about some people having problems with ritek and ty is quite expensive.

    So far, I have not heard any complaint about verbatim.

    Well, the choice is yours.

    Taiyo Yuden is far superior to all media. IT IS KING!! With ritek, you have to make sure you buy the grade 'A' media. They make so many inferior batches, the market is flooded with crap under the ritek brand name. Its the same with verbatim. You have to make sure you buy the datalife plus, or you're gonna get stuck with inferior quality media. With Taiyo Yuden brand disks, you will NEVER have a question with the quality of the disks. You will only have flawless burns, all the time. That CANNOT be said about any other media.

    You get lucky with other media. You get flawless burns with Taiyo Yuden.

    TY is better, but personally I find Ritek grade A disks just as good. Well, I use Ritek atleast. I buy from Rima.com and I know for sure all my riteks are the real thing. you can use a program called DVD identifier and it should display the disc ID as an R01 or R02.... for +R 4x and 8x respectively. And like someone said, newegg is good as well.

    The reason I say +R is because I have a dvd burner that can bitset a disc to DVD-ROM after every burn. This way the reader (PS2, DVD player, or anything) will think the disc is a DVD-ROM and not + or -. DVD-ROM is the standard format that all commercial discs you buy at the store are, so this way you can just forget about the + or -.

    As I found to my cost, just identifying a disk as Ritek Rn or Gn is no guarantee of its quality. It seems Ritek must do QA on the output of all of their media lines, the good stuff will be branded Ridata or Traxdata, the slightly iffy Arita. The remainder seems to find its way onto the market in myriad ways. So, if you're buying non-premium brand Ritek, you're taking a gamble. I used to buy the stuff and had excellent results and also infuriating results, then I bought my first batch of Taiyo Yuden.

    I've burned hundreds of TY's now and never had a coaster, they play on anything without skipping, and the disks test out with KProbe brilliantly - every time.

    Nowe I don't gamble, I pay a little extra for a sure fire winner, every time.

    dav3..TY are def. better but i like the ritek..Ridata .price wise they do the job well you might try ..meritline.com..also. and as far as the DVD dash R ..or ..DVD plus R..either is fine I use the dash R. Most of the newer player will record and play both and the older players are more compatable with the DVD dash R
