best cheap media :
datawrite all non ritek-types like CMC TTH02 is sweet !!
datawrite Titanium CMC and their +DL kicks ass for a cheap +DL
and tuffdisk (CMC)
Note on Double Layers - not Duals
there are only 2 brands that ever worked for me.
Verbatim and Datawrite (yeah printables) and Datawrite Titanium.
i coastered all kind of DL’s even genuine (??) richo ones (5 out od 5 ) as well as all sort of ritek related ones. in standalone compatibility (all booktyped rom of course) the datawrite even seem to be better (for about half the price) compared to verbatim - no ideas about long term reliability.
some ritek dye’ed ones burned fine but did not work in the standalones like sound dropouts, picture stops and worst some layer-jump-problems means no jump. :a
hope that helps - ahab666
btw: as soon as i understand the rules for probing i will kprobe some of the above mentioned media
