These were indeed no name Great Quality DVDs from Fry's Electronics. They were rated at 8x according to Fry's so they are probably Sony rejects sold as generic.
I will try to rescan at 5x. Then I will burn another at 8x to see how they scan.
Thanks for the replies!
Oh BTW would you suggest that I copy the data off these DVDs and reburn them? Do these values, although in spec, indicate a potential reliablility problem?
