    Hi guys, I'd been hearing good reviews about the Taiyo Yuden discs, and since all my dvd movies seem to be very choppy i thought i'd invest £40 in a spindle of 100 DVD-Rs http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk/acatalog/info_3174.html) Taiyo Yuden, unbranded, TYG02.

    The first few burnt with my Lite-on LDW-811S were ok, except after about 5 dvd-r's, the movie's have gone back to being choppy. i've also tried the same batch with a Pioneer DVR 110D and they're still choppy? Is this a one off? I've heard so much about the Taiyo Yuden media that i'm slightly annoyed to find out that i've bought 90 odd coasters! Especially since i invested £40 on them! Should i try the verbatim media with Taiyo Yuden dye instead??

    Nick

    Blighter make sure your burning at 4X VERY IMPORTANT !!! The Taiyo Yudens should work fine and turn everything else off while burning (no other programs running)

    I've never seen genuine TY's for sale in the USA except for certain Made in Japan media, but you can get really good deals on them at SuperMediaStore.com

    I got a question for the SONY DVD-R, are they any good? I tried burning DVD movies they ran very good but whenever I use to create a DATA DVD using Nero Ultra, it does not work on any other computer. My DVD+/-R is Lite-On SOHW-832SX (Double Layer). I have an external and internal. I used the external on my laptop to burn a data DVD and it only ran on Lite-On DVD writers. Do lite-on dvd writers suck or is the Sony DVD-R media cheap?

    supermediastore.com ,meritline.com ,rima.com or newegg.com all sell Tiayo Yuden and you will never get fakes for them unlike shop4tech steer clear from that site

    yes, the 16x TYs are good, ONLY if they are GENUINE, check on the inner hub and i can verify for you...they will also code out as TYG03 with a media identifier program...

    also another tip, the 16x TYs dvd+r format will be available early next year, so be on the lookout for those :) they will code out as YUDEN000T03 :)

    a tip when burning 16x rated media, i PERSONALLY keep my burns @8x, i would keep the burn a little slower to ensure less chance of errors, but, the scans i have @16x are not too bad either, it really depends on your setup/system, use caution for speed when burning onto 16x rated media...

    I know, i never go higher than 8x, i use 8x for data discs and 1/2/4x for PS2, 2x most of the time.

    I recently got some Verbatim 8X DVD+R media made in Taiwan. In several of the other posts, I see people refer to "MCC 003" and "DataLife". Where would I find this information on my own disks? On the disk itself? On the spindle? On the packaging. I've looked all over with no success. Thanks for the info.

    If you download dvd identifier (look for it on a search engine) that will do the trick.

    Puds 1970... Thanks! I'll give it a try. Maybe that will clear up some of the "fog".

    Puds 1970 ... That was just what I needed! I was able to get all the pertinent information from the disk. Thanks again for your help. Now maybe I can follow some of the comments in these threads a little more closely.
