Basically there are two ways:
1) Take a look to thread on the forum that contains burning results of the drives you have on your computer (there is a thread dedicated to almost any burner)
2) Do some tests by yourself and see what discs give you better results.
Usually, the better are the media you use, the better are results. Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden are the very best discs available currently, so using these there is a very high probability that you get good results with any drive
