Yeah I just bought a Pioneer DVD burner. Yeah I took a long time before I realized the need for a DVD burner. Funny considering, I got a CD burner when they were like still $300..
Ok so I've been using the Fujifilm CD-Rs (the Taiyo Yuden ones) for years. Looks like they are continuing their quality (TY and Fuji) for DVD media.
However Fuji loved to jump around with Prodisc for their CD-R discs. My Lite-On drive didn't like those very much.
Should I continue using Fuji DVD media if they use TY? I assume it's still pretty easy to tell ("Made in Japan" stamped on the packaging). Does Fuji use other manufacturers for DVD media like they did with CD-R media?
Now here's another question, DVD-R or DVD+R? Does Fuji use TY for both formats? I mean in terms of quality and compatibilty (DVD+R or DVD-R).
Also even though the packaging may say 8x, can the Pioneers burn these at faster speeds (say 16x or 12x)?
