    I use original Pioneer media, no problems so far, burns perfectly at 4x, not one coaster yet and I have burned around 557 dvd-r's. They also play on all systems I have tested, PS2, Xbox, DVD players.
    Avoid PioData which is a cheap imitation of Pioneer, made by Lead Data. Crappiest dvd-r ever made :)

    You use Pioneer own brand?? You have burnt over 550 discs?? By my simple calculations, you have spent £2200 on DVD R's, when Riteks at 90p each couldve only cost u £495. U must be loaded!

    Buy Ritek G04's, they best, bar the pioneer own brand!

    I've used verbatim but a bit dear
    started using shintaro and seem ok. tryed dvd movies & ps2 games & all work well.
    dvd-r discs seem to be dearer in Australia.

    Thnx Oriphus, I guessed by looking at the links in your sig that you used dvd-and-media.com, which i have not long ordered some GO4s off - but sigh, i missed Initial city link this afternoon :-( i'll catch the buggers tomorrow though.
    Good site (your link), your own site i presume?, i will surely look at the other sites you use.
    Thx again for your help.

    MyVoda - i hope the discs work well for you.

    Geeza - it is my own site, though it has been neglected recently. In about a week i will get more user guides and media tests done. Thanks for your comments :)

    Does anyone know where to buy (on-line or otherwise) Ritek DVD blanks here in Spain? If online, it would be better if they were not that far away to lessen shipping charges.

    BTW, i got PLATINUM DVD+Rs at 4x for only 1.36€ a piece. I think thats cheap.... anyone know of any bad reviews (or good) regarding this brand?

    The 50 traxdata ritek g03's I got from blankdiscshop.co.uk arent performing too well so far..(3 coasters out of 10 burned - used a cheapo brand on same hard disc rip and burned fine) Bad batch? Dont like the idea of glider cases..

    Contact blankdiscshop if you are sure you are burning correctly and not running any programs that might iterfere with it while burning. Traxdata are one of the most reliable discs around.

    Thnx Oriphus for the info on the G04 discs!!
    All 25 burned spot on with no failures on my A06.

    In fact - i'm gonna order another 100!!!

    Top discs (Clonedisc Ritek G04) www.dvd-and-media.com.

    Would highly recommend to anyone with a 4 speed burner. (4.3gig takes an average 13minutes on RecordNow Max)
