    hey rob,
    did you read the fine print on the side.
    it saids min of 100 required.
    thats ridiculous. who is rich enough
    to spend almost $300 on media.

    well, i'm sorry i didnt read the part you ask doc how manu
    did he bought. it seems to me its kinda strange to have
    that kinda expensive item for sale and its sold out.
    whats the average price for a verbatim DL??
    i knew the 2.88/disc have to be at least twice as expensive.

    as far as the price for a DL verb you can catch them on slae for about 1.30-1.50 a disc.

    seeing taht TY is getting into the DL game im sure those prices will come down.

    If you look at the specs for those TY DLs, I think they are better than anything out there right now, 8x rated burn speed. I think the Verb DLs max @ 4x, upto 6x on overspeed. The TYs are also HUB PRINTABLE, which no other DL currently is.

    Rima has 2.4x (up to 6x) Verb printable DLs for 2.40 ea. in a 20 pk

    Meritline has 2.4x (up to 6x) Verb printable DLs for 2.70 ea when you buy 100

    If you consider this, the price quoted is not out of line.

    What?? TY doesn't make +R DL's yet? I wonder if they ever will? I think my Plextor 716-A with 1.10 firmware will burn -R DL's ok but I've never tried it. Has anyone else with this model of Plextor?

    first of all, you might need to download a new firmware.
    i think its 1.11. i am not sure about this but
    im sure somebody else will confirm this for you.
    well, i got couple of the px716
    and it does burn DL but at 4x for the +r.
    it doesnt say anything about dl-r so i assume
    it wont burn them.
    However, I have not burn any dl before.
    I am sure about those because I read them
    out of the box.

    bratcher, yeah thaT 1.11 FIRMWARE BEEN OUT FOR AWHILE, the update had more to do with new Vista OS so you won't notice any difference if you have XP , i didn't

    as far as the DL media the PX-716A is capable of burning EITHER the plus format or the dash format DVD+R DL / DVD-R DL up to 6x speed. so yes it will work

    Lately I have been getting a lot of TYs that burn about 20 to 40% and then I get a signal that the burn has not been completed probably due to faulty media. When I take them out they have a slightly different colored ring on the inner portion of the disc. This happens with both of my Lite-On 18A. Does anyone have any ideas?

    That just means that the disc has been written to. Discs are written to from the center outward and since it stops half-way you notice the color change. Without you giving specifics as to what you're using (i.e. hw and sw) it's hard to guesstimate what's going on.

    I am using two Lite-On DVDRWLH-18A1P burners and a combination of any dvd and clone dvd for software.
