Silver backed dvd-r's

i was wanting to know if anyone has seen or know where to get dvd-r or rw’s that are silver on both sides?

DVDR dyes are purple.
Put it on a silver surface … it’s still purple.

i always find it funny when people ask for those, since theres only ONE reason why anyone would want silver bottomed dvd’s lol :bigsmile:

Please explain …

They want to make them look as real as possible.
But there’s still the book type, and the header data, and the media code. Nobody will ever be able to make DVD-ROM on his burner.
Ever tried DVD-R for Authoring? :wink:

I kind of assumed that was the case … but i realised that they wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny except by the most useless guard in the known universe :stuck_out_tongue:

Hehe…moving to the Blank Media Forum :wink:

Regarding the question, this has been asked several times before, and here are some links to other threads about similar subjects:
Silver burnable surface (inkjet printable)

silver or gold bottom DVDR

DVD+R DL Silver

Silver commercial-like media - can I obtain that ?

Clear dye - silver discs?

Silver Underside CDRs.
The short answer is, that the closest you can get to a silver bottom surface on DVD recordable media is to use DVD-RW or DVD+RW, because all dyes used for DVD-R and DVD+R are purple, at least until now.
