    Everyone vouches for Verbatim DVD-Rs. I can't really say since I'm more of a USB-loading guy. [​IMG] I do have many working GameCube games on Memorex discs, but many reported problems with it...

    I have had success with sony, verbatim and tdk. Any of them are good choices in my opinion.

    -R's!!!!
    Also, how bad / good is your computer?
    If your only getting 2/10 to burn ok, theres a problem.
    Are you using imgburn?
    Are you burning with no programs running in the background? like surfing? Hmmm?
    How s your ram? 512? higher? less?
    What kind of CPU? Motherboard?
    Facts, man! Facts!

    Verbatim is a very trusted and reliable brand.

    I bought a stack of 100 Verbatim DVD-R's for about $20 (it was an insane deal) and they've worked great, well for when I used to do disc loading. It's better to just switch to USB loaders honestly, they usually get better compatibility and run a lot better too. But until then, Verbatims work well.

    I've also used discs ranging from Fujifilm to I think Memorex and they work fine. Just as long as they're not knock-off crap they usually work.

    Verbatim without a doubt.
