I made the critical mistake of using brandless (or seemingly brandless) DVD-Rs, and now I find that almost two years, later, some of them are going bad on me. I’d love to replace these, but it’s rather hard to find DVDs that look like these. I mean, there are the inkjet printable ones, but I’m not interested in those. I want ones with a blank white plastic surface (like most DVDs have).
The only thing I have managed to find so far are Princo, but from what I’ve read here, they sound rather bad. So I was wondering if anyone knew where to get DVDs of this particular type that are of a good brand, affordable, and long-lasting.
But I’m starting to wonder… by “degrade” I mean that certain DVDs I own cause my drive to make a terrible grinding noise when I put them in. I’m guessing this is the fault of the DVDs and not the drive since other DVDs work just fine in it. But I’m not an expert, so I’m not really sure.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
