Blank dvd media
    #4193042 - 05/18/05 11:43 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

For those of you who have dvd burners, how do I know if my blank dvd that I wanna buy is compatible with my dvd burner?

your burner is either -R or +R...if you're lucky it's - AND +

it should say on your drives hardware profile.

make sure you don't try to use a -R in a +R or a +R in a -R
unless the drive supports both...which most do these days.

I know that much.

I don't need any specific media though?

I was looking at some Ritek media, and it had certain dvdrw drives it works with.

you can only burn -rw if your burner does -rw. you can use whatever brand you like, so as long as it is right type of media (i.e. dvd-rw,dvd+r, whatever). actual brands are only relevent when considering quality of storage or just retail price.

In my experience Panasonics only play +R
xbox will not play +R
cheap ones like apex play anything.


I get memorex -r

http://www.videohelp.com for all your compatability questions. Generally its the consoles that are picky about disks and not the burners picky about disks. You can get a nice console that will play anything you throw at it tho.

Meritline.com supermediastore.com for good media deals.

i get the tdk or fuji dvd's, either + or -, as long as it's atleast 8x (so my burner will burn them at 12 or 16x). Also, i do not pay more than $20 for a 50 pack, so just wait untill thiere on sale somewhere and buy like 2 packs.

i dont like memorex, the 4x could only be burned at 4x, and the 8x could only be burned at 8x.
