    I have tried many DVD brands to copy movies. Most of them offerred great quality. My only question is...

    How come all the original DVD movie's surface look and feel different from any DVD brand that I use? For instance, my DVD surfaces have light blue color but most orginal DVD surfaces have gold or siver color. Also, the original one feel thicker or stronger.

    Can anyone please explain this to me.

    Okay there is a simple answer to your question! commercial produced -dvd's {movies,Games ,Software ect... 1 are normally Pressed/stamped in a process similar to music cd's And Vinyl records ! therefore your quest to use the same media they do isn't going to happen! as they are not burning dvd's or cd's as you are doing! if you are using good media & getting the desired results you don't have a problem ? Happy burning Ciao!

    Well I suppose you could look at that way ! But considering that you normally only see the underside of your media for maybe a nanosecond ! I don't see your problem ? If you want dvd's that look just like The commercially made ones then Just play your original disc ! If you want a silvery /platinum /gold surface on the underside of your disc & you want to make them yourself ! You could either make DVX Vcd's & or Make Regular VCD's copy's of your original disc bearing in mind that you are loosing quality by doing so and will most likely have to split your movie into 2 or more sections depending on length ! I would'nt bother myself but that is a possibly option ! It's like buying a car that needs premium Hi Octane Gas and putting Regular in the tank ! it may work but it won't work properly ! Regardless Good luck ^ happy Burning !

    Thanks for your suggestion. All I wanted to know was simple. What DVD brands should I buy to get the same quality as original disc? Obviously there is no match. Thanks just the same.

    SamSakola- The retailers the other members mentioned are quite good so it's all in catching a sale either at one of the local reatilers or online ! Verbatims go onsale at bestbuy every couple of weeks to get Taiyo Yudens you can either Hunt for Made in japan Sony's Or Fuji's Good luck finding either Though you may have some luck finding sony MIj the Fuji are rarer then hen's teeth ! Or order Taiyo yudens online ! again sales are common & try to get Free shipping if you can & again good luck
