Need to buy some media



need to get some more media. i have a 1620 and wanted to ask the members here which are the 3-4 best dvd-r media for this burnner hopefully 16x and most important were to get it from. :slight_smile:


Only DVD-R?
Based on my experience here and others here, only TYG02 and MCC03RG20 is good @16x. Plus your TYG03 maybe but I have none.

If you would consider DVD+Rs, then TY02, MCC004, and RICOHJPNR03 is very good on 1620 @16x.

  • TY02: look for Taiyo Yuden DVD+R 8x, or bestbuy Fujifilm/Sony/TDK Made in Japan.
  • TYG02: (TY DVD-R 8x), or bestbuy look for Fujifilm/TDK Made in Japan.
  • MCC004: Verbatim 16x DVD+R
  • MCC03RG20: Verbatim 16x DVD-R

Other members would probably add some more media based on their experiences.



I agree with zevia, my 1620 likes the +R’s better than the -, and my 716A likes the -R’s. Any of the above work very well, I got my hands on some bad MCC03’s one time and wont buy them again. You will have to try different media and see what your system likes as we all get some what different results.
