I used to use TDK DVD-R, 16x, 4.7 GB blank discs to convert/burn movies from my computer. They always worked fine. They were a bit dark matte silver in color. I can't recall where I bought them, perhaps Future Shop or Best Buy, they came in a 100 spindle.
When I finished them, I purchased the same (above) at Costco, only difference was the color was more pearl white/blue in color. I tried the procedure on both DVD-R and DVD+R, (I bought both + and -). The minus could not play on my DVD player, the + could, but the movie skipped and froze throughout.
I didn't know what the problem was, and movies were playing ok before. I thought the player might be dirty, however that wasn't the case. I thought it might be a particular bad movie that I downloaded, but I tried the procedure on 4 different movies and got the same results.
I got a a blank DVD -R disc 16x (no name brand) from a friend and the movie turned out ok.
Is there a difference between TDK discs? The only difference as I mentioned was the color, all other specs were the same.
I can't figure this out. As it stands, the TDK's from Costco are not compatible with my player.
I have a Pioneer DVR-450H-S, which also tapes TV programs to the HD, along with playing DVD's.
Any light you can shed on this would be great.
