i got a hp dvd640 lightscribe 16x burner.i have been getting optodisc dvds which are kinda cheap and far from the best.the first batch i had worked great with no errors.however the second batch sucks.i know they tweak the dyes in them so i figure that is what happened.at first i corrected the problem from burning at 4x instead of 8.but i still get ones sometimes that will play in my dvd player but not my computer.i even updated my firmware and my computer is defraged.so i was wondering what type of meida do you all recommend at a affordable price?
the site i buy my dvd's from is shop4tech.com which has free shipping and pretty good deals. i was looking at 2 other brands that sound better....
