Which brands do you guys recommend? Thanks.
Taiyo Yuden for CD-R and DVD-R.
Verbatim for DVD-RW, and maybe for DVD-R (although their DVD-R have been somewhat inconsistent for me).
TY for CDR, DVD-/+R.
Verbatim for DVD-/+R, and +RW
Verbatim CDs are good for everyday storage though
Thanks. My friend just gave me a few blank Fujifilm DVD-RW’s, are these any good? I forgot to ask that before.
Pop one of the Fuji’s into CD-DVD Speed, tell us the MID from the Disc Info tab, and we’ll let you know.
NO RITEK, TY are better as +R than -R, NO RITEK, but Verbatim -R are pretty good, NO RITEK, in LG and newer Pioneer burners, NO RITEK. Verbatim +RW are the only ones, NO RITEK, I have found that are, NO RITEK, consistent. You will find much better results if you accept the + format.
Oh, one more thing, NO RITEK NO RITEK NO RITEK NO RITEK.
LOOOOOOOL …I’m not sure you got the point across
