    Just bought a dvd burner (8X NEC +_ burner) and I'm looking for the best media to use with this drive. Along with dvdr discs I need some dvdrw as well. Is there any difference in +/- media besides compatability issues. Anyone know where I can found out what would be the best type of media I should use with this drive that would also give me playing compatability with the most dvd players?

    Thanks,

    Ken H

    www.dvdrhelp.com is probably your best bet, but be prepared to do some research at that site, and some cross-referencing to come up with what brand media you should use.

    Over here most of the blank disc suppliers sell 'trial packs' - 10 different DVD-R or DVD+R brands - for exactly this kind of uncertainty.
