    Hi Syrnix

    For a Media guide see http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    Buying Verbatim is a crapshoot. According to the Media guide the media code can be anything from YUDEN (Good) to CMC (bad).

    Check the media guide and buy a known good media.

    Good media has good results
    Bad Media = coasters

    I hope this helps

    Hi Syrnix

    The better gamble it looks like the Verbatim 25-Pack 4x DigitalMovie DVD-R Disc Spindle.

    If you wish to find out each discs media code use DVD Identifier - http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/

    You will need at some point to confirm the media code only then you will know if it is good or bad.

    For example Memorex +R media can either be RICOHJPN01 (good) or CMC (bad) after buying a spindle of CMC I learned the packaging differences to avoid the CMC

    I hope this helps

    What are the packaging differences for Memorex DVD+R? Is this a good media brand? I don't see this brand in digitalfaq.
