I’m getting great scans (quality scores of 99), but much longer initialization times on my dvd players (3 different models) with my Verbatim Lightscribe DVD+R discs with occasional failures unless I eject and reinsert. The standard Verbatim -R’s I have take half the time and I haven’t had a problem yet. These are both burned on a Pioneer 111L 8.29 drive so they’re bitset to DVD-ROM.
To the point, I have some of their -R Lightscribe discs coming in the mail, but I doubt they’ll be here by the weekend (else I’m going to have to put off bringing these with me - old vhs tapes on dvd for family members). I can’t find a SINGLE local store that carries the things…they only have the +R’s. Anyone know where to look to pick some of these up? I’ve looked at bestbuy, compusa, circuitcity, officemax, officedepot, target, fredmeyer, ritzcamera, staples, and maybe one or two other places. Help?
It shouldn’t matter, but I’m in Portland, OR
edit: I’ve burned at both 8x and 4x with similar results, so not sure whats up with the +R media. Either way, I still want to find some -R’s
