My friend gave me a pack of no-name DVD-Rs. His friend gave them to him after a couple of bad burns… I backed up one movie and was actually trying to copy a copy (to see how well that works) and found that this generic media had an error on it.
I don’t think I will use this media for any movies, but I was wondering if generic DVD-R’s are any good for data? Or if I’ll get the same results (movie or data)?
Is there a utility to find out the actual name of the manufacturer?
