Right I got majorly stung with a seriously bad batch of ANV Go5 dye discs from blankdiskshop. They go to pot at the end of the disc ( where it changes to 8X I guess). I get horrible transfer rates.
Anyway I do not want to get stung again, I am not gonna cheap out on media, I want sumin that will give me good quality. Now from what I read on here the Tayo Yuden are the best? Also seen some Verbatimin 16X?
Now I am not gonna be messing with firmware unless it official. All I want is sumin that will give me consistently good burns at its rated speed.
I am gonna buy DVD-R from here http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk/acatalog/Show_me_all_the_DVD_R.html
Now, out of the Verbatimin and Tayos I guess would be the right choice? Or are there others to consider. I only want DVD-R as they work well in my DVD player, and are more compatible.
Please help me to not get stung.
EDIT> I am on the verge of selling this 3500 due to bad quality burns. Formatted, tried windows drivers on my NF3 based board etc, diff firmware and no luck. If the top dog media does not work, then I am gonna have to go with a Pioneer 109. I would rather not do this though if I can find some good stuff!
