UK post, media bought in the UK.
Maybe obvious, ran out of Emtec DVD-R 8x certified and thought all DVD-R would be OK, buy brand name.
Bought a spindle of Maxell DVD-R 1-8 Speed and I can safely say they are junk… or to be fair don’t work reliably with my setup.
Typically backed up a movie, and the DVD copy would freeze, sometimes straight away, sometimes, half way through.
Sometimes also copied data, and data readable on some DVD’s and not on others… most annoying when you need the data.
Went back to Emtec and never had a problem since.
Hardware: Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1213S. Software: old version of Nero 6(had problems when upgrading to newer Nero), DVDShrink and DVD-Region+CSS Free
Main question when I run out of Emtecs should I search high and low for the same again…
Is this a typical problem…
