Default O.T. Prefered / most compatible DVD discs brands


Oh, yeah, wasn't the question about disc brands? Oops.

For the "+" brands, they're all pretty much made by the same company (Ricoh) so there's not a huge difference. This will probably change soon, though, as + becomes more popular.

For the "-" brands, Maxell, TDK, Verbatim, and Apple seem to be the best. There's a lot of cheap junk out there...sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. They depend on the phase of the moon and which batch you happen to get.

Check out <http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdmedia.php> if you want to do some heavy research.

Thanks Lou

All things being equal then, I'll stick with Maxell. It served me good so far (for CD-R / RW), so I
shouldn't have a problem.

Ah, I guess they are starting to catch up. Come to think of it, I think
I remember seeing some advertised, lately, as being able to read +RW. I
know mine doesn't. It's a couple of years old, now.

I had been wondering about that. Thanks for mentioning this. I had
wondered if Matsushita had somehow been split up or something. ;-) I
wonder why they shortened it? Was it one of the things that they had to
make smaller in order to fit the drive into the machine? (heh heh heh
I'm *just kidding*)

Ha ha! Actually, you're probably right, Vicky. They probably only have 8 characters for the drive ID, so they had to shorten it to Matshita. It might sound OK to Japanese speakers, but to English speakers, well... :-)

Oh, and according to macrumors.com, it looks like Apple is finally supporting DVD+R/RW in Panther. According Apple's web site:

(Scroll down to the System section near the end; it's the first item listed.)
