    Never a problem.

    I've started to use the bulkpaq orange. I used to use the datawrite optima blue, the bulkpaq ones are 1/2 the price and just as good.

    taiyo yuden is the best for dvdr5
    verbatim is the best for dvdr9, but I use matrix dvdr9 seems grade A so far
    sometimes fujifilm uses taiyo yuden, usually they don't..I usually have to order taiyo yuden unbranded online

    not everyone needs to burn at 4x speed, like i said before, everyone's burner and computer specs, media are different.

    I used to stick with 4x because thats what everyone said but I found that I had less DREs at 8x on verbatim lightscribe media.

    Like jalaneme said, Burner and media makes it different for each person.

    I'm using a Samsung (TSSTcorp) SH-S182M burner.
