I’m completely new to this, I’m afraid.
I have burned some movies to (pretty cheap, I think) Sony DVDs, and whilst they’re pretty okay, overall, they quite often “freeze up” or “choke up” for a couple of seconds, and it can become pretty distracting and really ruin the experience.
I’ve been trying to look for good alternatives, but it is so confusing.
I’ve hears good things about Taiyo Yuden DVDs, and Verbatim DVDs, but even then I don’t know whether to go for DVD-R or DVD+R…
Also, I have been told that it might vary from computer to computer which DVD is best— which “burner” the computer has? Is this the case? I have a Philips 15NB57 laptop (but I’m not sure how to work out from that which sort of “burner” is in that series…)
It’s so confusing!
Could anyone possibly recommend a brand of DVD (and whether I should get DVD+R or DVD-R)— just so that my DVDs don’t end up with these spots of freezing/choking/glitching…?
Also, I would like to know what reliable websites I could buy these DVDs from. I only ask because I have heard stories about scams: people being sent lousy, poor-quality DVDs that are just packaged in Taiyo Yuden boxes and that sort of thing…
Any reliable online sources?
Thank you so much for your help!
