    So far I've heard great things about Verbatim DVD+Rs... nothing about HPs.

    I have a bunch of HP dvd+r as well, and so far Alchohol 120% refused to burn any iso on it, but imgburn worked just fine.
    I didn't test any of the burned backups, because my Wiikey still hasn't arrived yet, but I have a good feeling that'll work.
    I will test them ASAP [​IMG]

    HP media is usually made by CMC. CMC sucks.

    Verbatim usually has amazing media... I've been getting amazing burns with Lightscribe Verbatim +R's. They where outsourcing some of there media to CMC so I don't know if they can be trusted fully.

    Maxell media can be good. If its made it Japan then its amazing. If its not.... it could be ok media or really bad.

    Sony is suppose to be really good. I've had really good luck with their -R's.

    TDK makes some scratch proof DVD's that you can get off of newegg. I've heard that they are amazing. TDK does outsource to CMC and even worse companies... I don't trust them.

    Memorex and Imation also outsources to CMC and even worse companies.

    Taiyo Yuden's are always good.

    Office Depot gets their media made by Ritek and its pretty good media.

    Office max and Staples media is some of the worst out there.

    Anything made in Japan or Singapore is almost always very good.

    Media from the USA, Malaysia, Austria, Europe, China, Hong Kong, and Korea always sucks.

    Most of all... you're burner makes a huge difference. I use Nero 6.6 and burn at 8x with most media because my burner likes that. =)

    found this just now. If you know your media codes this would help.

    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    Edit 1: Use DVD Identifier to find out

    Edit 2: The TDKs I've been telling people to get is part of the "1st class" tier on that list

    you have a good burner. Best Buy had Sony's on sale last week, too bad you missed it. Like I said, I had amazing burns with their -R's. As far as the HP's go... since you have an amazing burner you might not end up with bad burns. I've read reviews of that burner doing good burns with CMC media.

    I got a spindle of these given to me. They're CMC rubbish.
    It took under 5 minutes to get a DRE on Cooking Mama. I went out and bought some Verbatims and they're working fine. [​IMG]

    For all the +r haters.....I have every game out so far burnt to +r disc's and they all work great. Not a single dre yet on any game. I am using memorex +r lightscribe discs. Just my 2 cents
