    Hi guys,
    remember me?

    Well I just bougth a PC with DVD Burner,
    so, I was wondering?
    What DVDs should I use to burn movieson to?
    cus my burner says 8x in the front,
    and Ive seen some DVDs that are not too expencive
    but say something like 4x...
    Can I also use those on my PC?
    I think the 8 or 4 mean speed,
    If Im right, could you tell me what to expect
    refering to the time it will take to burn a movie?

    As always, thank you guys!

    i have an 8x dvd burner but i use 4x media all the time. bought a 100pk for $40 at newegg. my dvd burner reads them as 6x dvd+r and it only takes about 10 minutes to burn a movie after its been encoded. btw dvd only hold 4.3 GB of video and not the 4.7 GB it says on the label. as for the 6 and 8, they are the speed at witch the data is written to the disc. 6x is 8300 kB/s.

    i like verbatim 4spin - they work at 8 with no problems.

    i did have a 100 spindle of cheap stuff, and the last 30 wouldnt burn - got loads of errors with them...so i hate the cheap ones, though i know some people swear by them.

    btw: i get my disks 40p each, in 25's

    often depends on what brand of burner you own. some are very picky about the disc brands they'll burn satisfactorily, others will do a great job of burning whatever generic crap you throw at 'em.

    Princo discs have been cheap and reliable, with my Pioneer burner.

    If you have a liteon or a rebadged liteon(sony possibly) you had better stick with good quality dvd+ disc..have a look around here for more dvd burner info http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61

    Actually the price of the disc can be misleading. Just because it is cheap doesn't mean the disc are cheap. For example, the discs spirex bought are 100 for 40 dollars. Yes cheap, but the "manufacturer" is actually using TY discs which are top of the line.

    true, and that kinda sux
    i got an HP (rebadged NEC) and hp seems to wanna support dvd+r more so than dvd-r
    (HP is kinda gay like that)
    but tests done show that dvd-r is a little more compatable on stand-alones
    cant remember the site, so ppl will have to google of they wanna see reviews

    and as for the cheap vs. name brand....
    i cant bring myself to buy the discount media, too risky
    anyone want an opinion on that, ask Adster
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
