    I know Taiyo Yuden's are by far the most recommended blank dvd's, but I was curious as to whether or not it would be worth my time to buy some blank Maxell DVD-r's (to burn gamecube games on). They are on sale at my local grocery store and was curious as to whether they tend not to write properly. Thanks.

    Most Maxell's come from RITEK - normal quality media- makesure it's ID is : RitekF1
    Best for everyday use.
    For archive purpose, use Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim

    Taiyo Yuden is sold under the JVC brand now. -Better media

    Verbatim used to come from Taiyo Yuden but now comes from there own facilities. they have there own metalized AZO dye-also good media

    Traxdata come from Mitsubitsi and have their special dye - good media.

    Just make sure they have a strong hard to scratch BACK PRINT.
    This is important because the reflective layer is on there.

    Preferrably get madia manufactured in JAPAN.

    I've had a spindel of 100 pcs. And did'nt have ONE bad burn!
    As for Wii everyone of them worked flaweless.

    Also Verbatim with the printable back side are awesome discs.
    They feel soft on the edges and have a very high reflection.
    VERY hard to scratch the back because of the printable backside.
    You can't see through the discs, even if you hold it against bright light.
