For those interested in some cheap media, I just got back from staples this morning (Sunday Feb 15, 2004) with a 10 pack jewel case of TDK DVD-r and some 10 packs of TDK DVD+R for $7.94 a pack.

The important thing is the DVD-R is 2x rated on the package but in the package I picked up they were 4x rated Ritek G04. I think this is a good deal for this media. The DVD+R are also ricoh. Looks like I have to go and get some more DVD-R media :slight_smile:

Here’s the media code:

The manufacturer for the DVD-R media seems to be random, I purchased 5 x 10 packs and 3 of them were Ritek G04 and burn at 4x while the other two were TDK and only burn at 2x :(.
