Heh, I'm not confident at all right now, still got butterflies in my stomach about placing the order. :Z
I won't order a spindle of blank DVD's until I've worked with some re-writeable ones first to get the hang of the drive, and then used some regular blanks to test media compatibility with my standalone DVD players (SONY and APEX).
I'm not too worried about the APEX, for a $60 cheapo player it will play any disc I burn without hesitation. The high end SONY on the other hand is EXTREMELY media sensitive. It wont touch most CD-R's, but will play CD-RW's just fine most times. Go fig.
For now I've got my 4 R's and 1 RW Fuji DVD blanks, and those will do for a bit. Locally I can get Memorex ones cheap, so those will be my second phase of testing. I've heard good things about Fuji, so I figured I'd start with those.
Tomorrow night the testing begins....(assuming FedEx doesn't botch things up).
