So what kind of media can you get 25 for $7 that records reliably at 4X? Give us a hint!
Sorry for the confusion.
I intended to say that the media I use is priced less than the Fry's media sold at its regular price.
The 25/$7 media - I've never seen it offered by the Frys in my area. Usually , the 1x GQ sells for about $18 - 20 for 25.
The media I use is 4x stuff at 50 for $35. Its at: http://www.shop4tech.com/item1600.html
How reliable? One questionable burn out of more than 70. The rest perfect using DVD shrink and Nero or DVD Decrypter and playable on my Toshiba SD-1600, an early generation player.
