    DVD+R or -R any brands/deals?

    Have been fiddling with my new NEC ND3500 DVD writer (doe +r,-r and dual layer) and am after some media to use in it. Anybody got some recomendations? I am mainly backing up video that I want to play on my dvd player or share with friends so something thats going to be comapatible with a wide range of players. Also if pssible inkjet printable as my printer has a cd tray. I will most probably buy 25-50 at a time on spindles.

    Cheers

    well i would reccomend the dvd-r format, simple fact are that they are cheaper and from svp they are like £4 for a spindle of 25.

    don't buy bulkpaq disks - buy good quality ones.

    I've bought a load of the ones with the Fuji dye & Ritek GO4 & get good results with both (from SVP)

    ritek are always good quality.btw have you upgraded the firmware on the writer so that you can burn at max speed on any speed media.well worth doing.
