Do you know the MID codes of those Fortis and Etion media? Where are you from?

If you are using them for a year and you dont have any problems, i dont see a reason why you should change them.

OK maybe if can get some TY or Verbatim then it should be worth the change.

Sorry vroom I am a slow writer, and had to make a pit stop.

A good DVD is the one that works after 5-7 years.

Cheap usually means lower quality, but not always.

If it is readable after a few years then it’s a good disc, but thats not guaranteed it’s pure luck.

Verbatim has higher standards and thats a good reason to spent some more money, also most of the burners will give good burn results with them.

Don’t worry i am not that fast, it was luck.

digital discs dosen’t supposed to last at least 20 years?
i have (magnetic) diskets that last more than 10 … so you are talking with me about 5 years? :bigsmile:

To many things can change in five years, and since we are not talking about the best media out there, i would say that 5-7 years should be ok.
Yes every company is saying that it will last 20 years, but thats under perfect conditions, what can i say maybe we can continue this discussion in the next few years.
