    hi lisa,

    THAT is where it gets a bit tricky~ you need to be familiar with a particular brand and it's past history to KNOW what you will be getting, for the most part, it's taking a gamble..

    branded companies change manufacturers fairly often, so, some of the "tricks of the trade" can be by looking on the spindle itself to distinguish "MADE IN JAPAN" or "MADE IN TAIWAN" on a few of the manufacturers (ie. Fuji MIJ 8x dvd+r are Yudens, Sony MIJ 8x dvd+r are Yuden coding as well, the MIT are NOT~!)

    that is just an example...really depends on what you are looking for, i may be more help to you if you have a particular media code that has worked well for you in the past, i have a few tricks up my sleeve in locating a particular media code based on my OWN past history of buying media locally~ i naturally recommend to others Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim...let me know~

    @alien

    it's ok...we ALL have had our fair share of bad media, it's a learning process...take it one step at a time~ :) i wasted plenty of $$ in the past buying CMC MAG crap, not knowing any better~ it happens to all of us at one point or another...not to worry, come check out more threads in the dvd-media forum where you will always find me recommending the Good from the Bad to the Ugly~ :)

    hi alien,

    well, i assume even in Australia media is STILL produced in either Japan or Taiwan..am i correct in assuming that?

    from your list..i would only stick with Sony (8x dvd+r MADE IN JAPAN is Taiyo Yuden, #1 recommended media, but must be MIJ for that to hold true) and secondly, Verbatim~ MCC coding is very good as well, MOST verbatims are MADE IN TAIWAN~ you might find some old stock made in singapore, but, i figure MOST you will find in AUS is probably MIT)

    so, with that in mind here is the breakdown :

    Sony dvd+r 8x MADE IN JAPAN (located on bar code on spindle)= TYs
    Verbatim 8x both formats MADE IN TAIWAN= excellent media as well~

    the others....stay away from, do yourself a favor and discontinue getting as you say,
    good luck~

    Yes you are correct.

    When saying i live in australia i meant that it was hard to get good brand disks mentioned by people eg.TY's. Thanks for the info. The disks right now that i have are teac with the CMC MAG.AF1 code and laser which are SKC,CO LTD and havent used the laser ones as i am afraid that the disks will be cr@# and wont work.

    you have just answered your own question~ im sorry to tell you that being RIGHT/CORRECT in your assumption is not ALWAYS a good thing~

    try out the Sony and Verbatim, you will have MUCH better success~ :) good luck~

    wow great list. Now where can i find a list of burners that work well with these brands? I have a Memorex 8x Burner. Works well with Memorex and tdk media, but not Imation media nor GQ media.

    use those lasers and teac as "nice shiny coasters" for your tabletop~ :) they should do a very nice job in keeping your table "H20 ring free" :)
