I bought some blank Verbatim DVD+R discs based upon my readings on this site and the high praise that some on this site gave that brand(Verbatim)of blank dvd. Well, the blank Verbatim discs that I purchased turned out to be PURE CRAP, in fact, I don't even think that the discs are actually Verbatim. The packaging indicates that I purchased Verbatim but when I put a blank disc in my burner it indicated that it was a different brand. I got a great deal on these blank discs from the local Office Depot store but it turns out that ALL the discs are defective and I'm going to demand my money back. From now on I'm going to stick with the blank discs that have worked perfectly for me: 1. Ritek 2. Fuji Film 3. TDK I was hoping that I wouldn't have to limit my purchases of blank dvds to strictly getting them from the internet but the blank discs that I have purchased locally have been very expensive(Fuji Film and TDK) so it seems that I will only purchase from Meritline until I can find reasonably priced good blank dvds here locally. Verbatim blank dvds are just garbage. How would I go about discerning the good blank Verbatim discs from the bad ones? I don't want to be deceived and ripped off again. Thanks!!!!!
