    Alright, I'm giving this a second shot. I have the Backup Channel installed and everything, and I've found an external DVD-drive that should work just fine in burning ISOs. My only problem now is what disk to use.

    I currently have:

    Maxell DVD-Rs
    Memorex DVD+Rs

    Will either of these work for burning ISOs, or will I have to go out and buy some Verbatims?


    Thanks.

    Memorex DVD+R worked for me, just two things:

    Burn at 8X is your PC is above 1.6GHz and 512MB RAM
    Change the Book Type to DVD-ROM

    Maxell should work too but you need to test by burning with ImgBurn at AWS (Auto Writting Speed)..!! [​IMG]

    Never tried Memorex, but Maxell should do the trick just fine. I got a 50-pack a while ago and never had any problems.

    I just changed my booktype to DVD-Rom, so that's all good. I guess I'll try out both and see if either works. Thanks.

    Theres loads of info on the forums about disc types whats good and bad - try doing a search first as theres a lot of different opinions - usually DVD-r's are safest but its not a golden rule and some brands just dont work

    Generally speaking, Memorex are complete shit. CMC Mag are totally unreliable. You may produce a working disc, but will very likely have problems with it down the line. Maxell are so-so, but far better then Memorex.

    If you want quality, stick with the tried and true.....Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim.

    Here is a great link for referencing dvd quality

    That's what I thought. I'll probably just buy a pack of Verbatims, just to be completely safe.

    Yeah better safe then sorry. I see you live in the States, supermediastore.com usually has pretty good deals and fast shipping on both Verbatim and Taiyo's.

    I have a 99 pack of Taiyo's I would like to sell. It's the good stuff.
