    Anyone out there that has done any backup with 50gb bd-re's please let me know what your experiences have been. I know that TDK and Panasonic both make a 50gb disc and I was wondering which ones work the best, are they equal, ect.?

    Damn. I can't even buy 50GB discs over here. Anyone know any webstores in Europe that have them?

    I was able to find them in stock at Dell for $50. I found that they are very hard to come by- make sure you call before placing your order, even if the site says they are in stock. I also found that Target is selling them through Amazon for $70, even though a search at Amazon won't produce anything. I researched this for a few hours and the best buy was Dell for $50.

    Not in Europe, but try meritline.com. They claim to ship internationally.

    burning 50gb at 2x...ive tried this, and the process took 4 hours.

    i really wish they would come out with 4x BD-R or BD-RE media...2x is just way too slow and time consuming...and boring!
