COMPUSA's own brand of DVD-R's are a pieces of CRAP. Spots on the dye , frozen pictures when backing up movies....I really hate experimenting with new media to find out that some assholes have the nerve to sell this filth. Fortunately, they were on sale for 10 bucks for a 10 pack...but still, i am pissed. At least my investment will benefit you guys, so u know to avoid them like the plague. I read on another post that u can buy cheap dvd-rw's and if at first u dont suceed, try, try again. Seems like a good concept, but what if spots come on the dye on a RW?? will erasing the data on an RW get rid of the spots???????
