What is the best choice for a DVD burner that works with cheap DVD-RW media? I recently obtained unexpectedly a really huge load of 2xDVD-RW from EMTEC and now I need a suitable burner. This is for data backup, so writing at 1x speed is OK for me, but I need to be able to read more or less reliably all that I write.
The media are possibly manufactured by BASF; possibly the same as Optodisc. I would like to provide more information but don’t know how, since I don’t know where to look on the DVD. I don’t have a DVD-reader or writer at this moment, so I can’t read any ATIP-codes or such off the disks.
I used a Lite-On 411s at a different occasion on a different computer, but I don’t have that drive here. I am thinking of getting one of those but I see reports of it not being too great with EMTEC DVD-R, so I’m not sure about its ability with EMTEC DVD-RW.
