    batori- It's like saying will I get Alzheimer's or will I live to be a hundred ? ect. I have used Philips 8X DVD-R media which is CMC some of my backups are 6 month to a year or more old and i have'nt had any problems yet ! But I may just be lucky ! I would say that if your have'nt had any problems don't worry ! the only way you can be sure your movie will play in a year or more is to try it after that long ! I have'nt be at this as long as many of the esteemed AFTERDAWN.COM membersip but I've done my share and learned along the way! I would suggest if you worried about longevity - put all your backups on Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden media ! or you could use mediacal grade media which is much more expensive but made especcially to be stable longterm ! But I think that would be overkill ! AS long as you stay away from the off the wall stuff you should be okay !Again I hope my limmited knowledge has helped ! peace my friend & happy burning!

    I have Databank -R 8x which identify as Sony.
    I have found them to be good so far, not having used many from a 50 disk spindle. They aren't in dogbomb's list, anyone have info on them?

    Hey,

    Guess what...... I just bought my first spindle of 10 Verbatim DVD-R's for $9.95 AUD, i checked them with nero and found the code to be
    MCC 02RG20. I checked the back and it said made in taiwan. :)

    LOL alien~ how ya been?

    those Verbs are just fine...why you think creaky came a running so fast? i believe THOSE are his favs. :)

    i only have a 100 pack spindle of those as i prefer the dvd+r MCC003s, but, those are FINE from my own limited Verb dvd-r experience as well` :)

    demand politely, now THAT is an oxymoron if i ever heard one~ :)

    they are indeed my fav's, though i nearly bought another 100 TY today, but a bit steep at £46, the last lot i got were at Verb prices, ie £38. Nearly bought 150 16x +R Verbs a couple hours ago, but i can always get some later..

    once i move off the boat i won't have to worry about £10 difference between TY's, i'll buy shedloads of TY and Verbs, i'll have room for them for change too

    Can someone please tell what are the best DVD+R & DVD-R media?

    I've tried Memorex and Princo. Princo sucked soo bad that other DVD-

    Roms didn't even read it. Memorex same problem.

    memorex = junk DONT use them get
    Taiyo Yuden
    Verbatium or
    Ritek
    or stuff that codes out as TY
    as far as DVD dash R or DVD plus R theres many debates on this check the fourm. either or is not better there just different formats i use DVD dash R but in some test the DVD plus R seem to test out better. if you do use DVD plus R booktype them to DVD-ROM to be more compatable with most standalone players.and the DVD plus R cost a little more in some cases
