Datasafe Discs With Ritek G04 DYE?



Just wondering what you guys think of these discs, as i’m finding them a bit hit and miss weather they play on my stand alone dvd player " Sometimes they play and another time they dont they just lock the dvd player", although they play fine on the pc.

I use dvd shrink and nero to back-up my dvd’s, my burner is a Lite-on 451@851s

I would be glad to hear youre views on the discs and my methods of backing up.

One more thing what are the best discs because as i understood it Ritek dyes are more compatable than most, perhaps i got it wrong :confused: Please put me on the right track :iagree:

All The Best

:bow: :bow: :bow:


Forgot to say the discs are dvd-r,

Hope this helps
