I have been copying for nearly 2 years and in the past 6 months it seems I have had all sorts of problems with crap media, mostly from name brand companies. I guess maybe since media prices have dropped that big names like TDK, Memorex and Fuji are shopping around for the cheapest price, not concerned with quality. I bought some Fuji DVD+r that are TY's and they suck. Most of the discs I have burned won't play in my XBox, which will play every other disc I put in it, and several of them that will play in my other dvd players have freezing, stuttering and total lockups. On the other hand, I bought some DVD-R Fuji, which are Prodisc. These work fine and haven't given me any problems. The Prodisc (-r's) are from Taiwan, while the TY's (+r's)are from Japan, so go figure. Everybody says TY's are great and to get media from Japan, but this doesn't hold true in this instance. I am gettign very irritated with the whole situation. The most consistant media I have bought in-store have been the Verbatim Movie Reel discs, which all seem to be MCC.
