    once you burn data to them they change color (the laser burns the data into the disk)

    anyway why do you want a certain color?

    I had a pack of CD-R's from memorex that had 5 different color dics (black, red, blue, purple, yellow) the whole disk was colored including the back part

    The dyes on DVD-/+R are usually purple, I haven't seen any other coloured dyes.

    I think it might in the specs about the colouring.

    I've never come across them. I think that silver backed finishes are only available when the disc is pressed as opposed to burnt.

    Recordable DVD-Rs are purple because of the dye used to be able to burn to it with a drive laser.

    Retail DVDs are silver because they are pressed rather than burned.

    As far as I'm aware, you won't find any writable DVDRs that have silver backs.
