    The reason I asked is that at almost 50GB per image [probably a bit less] X 20 == out of space on a 1 TB drive?

    A large harddrive? As in 1? I got 5 internal storage only (1x 1TB, 2x 4TB and 1x 2TB) drives next to my boot SSD of 500GB and i'm still running out of space. Obviously there's other stuff on it too but my point is if you're into the blu-ray world, space "vanishes" rather quickly even on the biggest drives. Blu-rays take up a lot of space going from 25-45GB. Then i've got 3x 2TB external ones and those are pretty full too. One of those 4TB drives has a whopping 214GB free, and one of those external 2TB a massive 32GB :p Current plans are to upgrade that 1TB internal one to another 4TB or even an 8TB one ^^. That said, we're getting off topic. Hope "my" blanks arrive soon :D

    @Ch3vr0n I don't think it's that far off topic. As you pointed out, this concept of using BD-RE DL media [or single layer in some cases] [for this purpose] is useful only if U have a tremendous amount of storage even by today's standards.

    Once you burn a ISO anyway without protection. You can nuke the ISO as the disc can be read with like Imgburn and another ISO can be made. If you destroy your backup disc then you must start from the original again. In my case HDD playback isn't my thing.

    Ditto, i also do a lot of format shifting in combination with plex. I've got lot's of TV shows i collect but it's a hassle to swap discs every time. Thus i've converted them to a mobile format. Setup plex and just stream them "netflix style" to my chromecast from my PC. If you got a couple dozen shows + about just as much seasons per show you need lots of space too. I wouldn't exactly call my storage space "tremendous" :p

    Just a heads up, Don't try to order these there will not be any back orders. It's kind of like you snooze you lose. I purchased them all. There is none to be had in the USA unless there is a private seller on Ebay etc. Europe or other parts of the world I can not answer but in the USA supply now dry.


    Verbatim and Verbatim CMC to DIFFERENT animals!.

    Best Regards, BN

    This is a great discussion. However... Why can't some company create BD-R DL for about 2 USD a piece? [Quality included] No one ever asks the question: Why does Verbatim have to charge 45 USD [MicroCenter] for a 10 pack? Seriously. Why not?

    EDIT: DVDs came down in price. Why not BDs?

    Perhaps an image will clarify what to look for for users that don't know what to look for. Mark the section ;)

    where did you order the discs from? If it was the same supplier that supplied Badnews then the boat has sailed but if you ordered from a different supplier then there might be a chance for me.
