Hi, this is my first post. You seem to have a very nice forum here. I tried to introduce myself yesterday in your living room, but when I went to post my introduction, the computer logged me out, and my work was lost. I’ll try again later.
For now, I have a question that you all have probably heard a zillion times before: Recently I bought a 100 pack of Memorex 16x DVD’s. As I got into burning them, it turned out that they were trash and I have ended up throwing about 1/3 of them away due to the fact that they would not burn.
It has been brought to my attention that there is not neccessarily a correlation between brand and quality, and the only way to determine for sure the quality of a DVD is to test it with a testing program. But in order to test them you have to buy them first, so what happens if you buy a batch of DVD’s and they turn out to be low quality?
How do members of this forum get around this problem? Is there any brand that you can buy with confidence that they will perform well? And how does this balance against expense? I have found that you can pay up to $2 per disc. What do you do if you are doing a lot of burning?
I am confident that members here have experienced the same issues and perhaps can pass some helpful hints along to me. Thanks, Helen
