you do what I’m doing right now and have to dig out all your originals and re-burn.
I’m kicking myself for not researching when I first started burning dvds. so far I’ve located 24 memorex (philips.C16) discs that no longer work from just a few months ago. I’m really hoping that i only had a spindle of 25 to start out with and I don’t have 26 more of these crappy backups hanging around.
i got the 100 pack of imation made in india (the media code slips my mind at the moment MBIPG101 yadda yadda) last week and a couple 50 packs of sony YUDEN000T02’s today so I should be all set. both seem to do well quality-wise.
I’m really hoping some of these memorex are still readable in my burner so I don’t have to dig my originals out from boxes of stuff (I recently moved).
moral of the story: quality media can be inexpensive with the right deals, but cheap media is just cheap media.
i know this is only very indirectly and loosely related to bargains, but I’m frustrated and I needed to rant.
