is it even possible to find quality dvd+R media at the local retailers? it seems that all the formerly reliable brands are all getting supplied by the same crap sources, and no matter what you buy its all the same product (just like the pet food recall issue) And none of the media code data online appears to be more recent than 2006, so I can’t even use that as a guide. Is it simply impossible to find decent media that has some archival life to it at a store I can just walk into and pay cash? I hate waiting and paying for shipping, but I want to be able to retrieve the data I burn at some point in the future with some reliability.
Also, is there any way to go about making some legislation that requires manufacturer data to be determinable on the outside of the packaging? I’ve returned 2 packages of dvd’s in two days after finding out what was really inside!
