    Taiyo Yuden +/- doesn't matter (I buy quality players for my quality blanks)

    I have always had more problems with Verbatim than not
    But for the moment stay away from them, lots of bad batches entering the market over the last few months.

    Been using Memorex DVD-r for about 3 yrs on a Panny player. Have had maybe 3 coasters out of 900. But the Memorex printable whites were the craps. Maybe one out of 10 would play.

    Taiyo Yuden works great but lately I have been experiencing skipping or stalls with ridata dl disks. I am using clone dvd and the problem only happens when I clone a disk and play it in my ps3. Weird, in the computer they play fine...

    Use Verbatim +R DL (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A 8x dvd+R DL only.
