    Okay i want to start burning some DVDs but first i want to know what brand of DVD-Rs blank discs i should get. I dont want something extremely expensive thats hand made in egypt and costs $100 dollars per and is only available through online order. I want something i can pick up at a well known store like tech depot, comp USA, target, wallmart...y'know those kinds of places.

    The best priced dvd blanks are ALL sold online.
    Go with RITEK Ridata, Prodisc, Verbatim, all have worked great for me.

    Hi,

    When buying media in retail stores I'd look for Verbatim DataLifePlus or Maxell :)

    I agree (more or less) the best DVD media are Verbatim DataLife Plus, Maxell. I also like Tayo Yuden (the company that invented CD's).

    There are a number of good stores online, I usually buy from www.tapeandmedia.com

    Before you buy from any store, check them out on www.resellerratings.com and see what other people say about them.

    I would suggest getting a small sample of each of the available brands of desired media's and trying them each out, some drives and devices just like some mediums better.
