Newbie question regarding media

#1

I have a new NEC ND-2500a. I bought three different media. TDK DVD+R 4X, Maxell DRD+R 4X, and Maxell DVD-R 4X. The media info from DVDInfoPro is shown below.My question is what important info (to a newbie) can be determined from the DVDInfo? Which of the three have the best chance of working well in my new NEC ND-2500a? Any info is appreciated.

The most important info is the “Media code/Manufacturer ID”.

In your case RICOHJPNR01 and MXL RG02.

Both should work fine with your NEC-2500.
