Good morning,

The url is http://www.medeainternational.com/infiniti/ebuyer/index.html

All you have to do is send a stamped addressed padded envelope to the given address.

My discs arrived today (I sent my envelope on Saturday) and I’m about to give them a test in my Nu DDW 081/082.

Cool seems to work for the entire world. But it isnt completely free… :slight_smile:

The discs are not worth much. Plus you have to pay postage plus you have to supply the padded envelope (Possibly inside a bigger envelope?).

Not worth it IMO.

It really depends on what your situation is. I needed to test my Nu DDW-081 flashed to 082 to see if it really does write to DVD-R. Now, I’m not going to pay out for 10 or more disks if I’m going to end up with coasters, so this was the perfect opportunity to find out the capabilities of my tweaked drive.

As for envelopes…

  1. One A4 envelope: free (recycled). Simply stuck a label over the address.
  2. First class stamp: 28p
  3. TWO padded A5 envelopes: free (recycled).
  4. TWO second class stamps: 40p

So for 68pence I have 6 discs.

Definitely worth it… for me.

Once I am confident about which media I can reliably use I will probably agree with your assessment, DeadMan. But give me time. I’m a newbie, dipping my toes in the media pond :eek:
