Any suggestions on the above? Particularly printable ones?
One TradeMe there seems to be...

No-Brand
Ritec
Princo

Any suggestions?
Thanks.




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I agree. Verbatim +R if possible. The Azo Dye is supposed to be one of the best.

I bought Fujifilm 8x, they are rebranded Taiyo Yuden (I forget the media code).  Not sure where you buy Taiyo Yuden brand in NZ, any on Trade Me?  Here you go (if you want DVD-R).

Thanks for the replies. For video recording, is there really any difference between +R and -R ?

It depends on where you expect to play the DVD. Most DVD players on the market now can read dvd+r and dvd-r. Check if the dvd player you are going to play is compatible.

As for which brand is better, it depends on you dvd writer. For example my dvd writer "like" particular brands more than others, and some brands have high rate of failure..

andrewcnz: Site to check out... http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm



That site does have some opinions that other "experts" have issues with. Good single sided printable disks like Verbatim are under $1, is there any need to find the absolute cheapest?

Good results with Sony +R, readable in anything that I have tried, and + (plus) format has somewhat improved error correction compared to - (that's a dash, not minus by the way). Verbatim +R are good too.

I have used Verbatim discs which are great on the whole. However, recently I came across a brand called SuperZero which is cheap and cheerful - I have had very few issues out of a couple of spindles so far.
