I could really use some advice from the experts on this forum… I recently purchsed a large number of T.Y. 8x DVD-Rs from a reputable UK website (SVP communications http://www.svp.co.uk/ ) only to find that 3 out of the first 5 dsics I tried to burn on my Samsung DL DVD writer failed. Since the site seems ot have a very good reputation (and offered to replace/refund the discs within 3 hours of my sending an email), I think it is probably the writer which is at fault and decided to return it and buy a new drive from SVP communications.
They recommended the Pioneer DVR-108 or the NEC 3500; bearing in mind that
I am only interested in how long the data is likely to survive intact (or if that is impossible to measure then in having a low error rate on each disc burnt) and not in burn speed
I will probably stick with the 8x T.Y. DVD-R media for quite some time
can anyone recommend one drive over the other?
Thank you very much,
