Based on our DVD write tests, the recommended media to use along with this drive are as follows:
Ritek - For all supported formats
PioDATA - For the DVD-R format
Memorex - For the DVD+RW format
Overall, if you want a trouble-free burning experience, I highly recommend you get yourself some Ritek brand media. If the DVD-R format is an absolute must, and you are looking to burn at 8X, then I'd highly recommend the PioDATA 8X discs. They also burned and played flawlessly.
Someimes I forget how good OC is at reviews. Then I read one's like this and remember again But I will say the compatibility news was interesting. :iagree: Let's hope there are more tests with compatibility to look at soon.
