I’d like a more experienced eye to give me advice on this, please. There is a significant quality difference between by -R burns and my +R burns. I’m using Verbatim discs in this example, but my Taiyo Yuden -R give very similar results to the Verbatims. Here are my questions:
How bad are these -R results in comparison to the +R? I’ve got 200 of the Verbatim DatalifePlus discs and 75 taiyo yuden discs, so I’m wondering if I should buy another drive, or is this -R burn quality acceptable overall for backing up movies long-term?
Can anyone recommend a high quality burner of -R media?
Should I transition away from -R no matter what drive I have?
Is it possible that I got bad Verbatim AND Taiyo discs, or that the quality test is misreporting the -R results? Or do I need to accept that the burner is the problem?
Thank you, everyone. I appreciate the input.
