I just finished reading through the sticky threads concerning the latest DVD+R DL. Seems to me that there are still quite a few issues with common burners, that creates a problem when writing from the 1st to the 2nd layer.
I went to Newegg and found a 25 DVD+R DL pack for $40, thought that it was a great deal until I read the reviews. Many people were complaining about coasters, most who complained, mentioned that they received a write error when going from the 1st layer to the 2nd layer.
I have around 30 DVDs I want to backup, but I don’t want to waste my time with coasters if DVD+R DL isn’t even ready for production yet! Of course I can always burn int he DVD5 formate (I believe that’s what it is called), but when you are watching a DVD on a nice TV, you wan’t a quality picture!
This is mainly just a discussion, but I would also like to know if there really is any DVD+R DL that will actually work well. The answer itself would help the general public, but in my case I am using a BenQ 1640 drive. If there is something specific just for my drive, then please explain, but also keep note that not everyone will have the same drive.
Hope that makes sense. Off to bed now. Btw, if I shoud just include the 2nd part of my question in this thread, i’ll be happy to do so.
