I need suggestions on which Made in Japan 16x DVD+R discs to use and also where is a good place to get them online?

I am currently using Made in Tawain media and I am having issues backing up two movies : Shall We Dance and Mr. 3000

The menus come out pixelated … and the first 4 minutes of Shall we Dance is pixelated and then goes normal for the rest of the film.

Mr. 3000 is pixelated for the first 13 minutes of the film then it goes back to normal for the rest of the film.

I havent had any other problems backing up any other titles with the media I’m using. I just seems to be these two films.

I even had sucess with Little Black Book! :slight_smile:

Not sure what the problem is … but I was told to get Made in Japan discs.

Please give me suggestions on which discs to get.

Thanks!

Haven’t seen MIJ 16X DXD+R media in the US. Only 16X is Verbatim, Made in Singapore. If the problem is specific to a DVD, then the original media is at fault. You can try to burn at 4X speed.

You can email RIMA.COM and ask for a sample of the Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD+R. I doubt if you will find better media in the US.
