Yeh…that end of the disc read is what was bothering me.
Most of the information I can gather about the VANGUARD media is that it’ll play OK until you get toward the end of the video.
That’s gonna bug me.
As soon as I’m done playing NCAA 2005 on my XBOX, I’ll be watching the above mentioned burned DVD to see what happens.
As far as the PC company…
It is PC Club and can be found at http://www.pcclub.com - there are ~60 stores in 13 different states and definitely worth stopping by one if it is local for you.
The media in question can be found on the website regularly priced at 29.99$ for the 50pack of 4xDVD-R. It’s labeled as "“SONY” on the site, but I have no idea why. I’ll be checking into that tomorrow.
For the month of August, there will be many sales on PC hardware and the like. The DVD media I’m talking about here will drop to 19.99$ and there will also be CDRs at 17.99$ “Buy-One-Get-One-Free” 100packs. All sorts of hardware and hardware packages will also go on sale as well.
If you’re planning to buy online, be warned…
- they do not ship international
- you will be charged state tax if a PC Club store is located in your state
- shipping charges will apply and are in some cases “less than friendly”
I guess I’ll be able to push the media for “data” and “games”…actual DVD video (full capacity) will be a bit subjective, though.
Any more input will be greatly appreciated.
