    they are 50 pack for 20$ at Staples vs. the HP DVD+R's that i've been using which are 5$ for 10 with cases.

    Which would you say is the better quality, I have had no problems with the HP discs.

    And I will be buying full cases for the DVD's so the jewel cases are not the selling point for me.

    What kind of drive do you have?

    Go to www.dvdrhelp.com, click on DVD writers and lookup which brands of media work best with the drive.

    It came with my dell computer, I believe as much identity as I found was that it was a NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A.


    I think it's a 4X write.

    I just need to know which to go with..

    Just stay away from cheapo no name brand dvds...they are more likely to burn coasters.

    the HP (Hewert Packart or whatever) Have worked out very nice for me and I haven't had one coaster, except for on a movie that did not burn correctly...that was the movies fault not the DVD.

    If you take a look at www.blank-cd-cdr.com, you can buy a demo pack of which gives you about 10 discs (one or 2 of a couple different brands) and try them out to see how they work for you.

    If not, try to stick with what you know works.

    Some drives are picky. I picked up a Mad Dog DVD burner a while back for real cheap only to find out that you had to use certain brands of media to burn at 4x. I am very happy with my Sony drive and I usually stick to Ritek brand media.

    You can try out Ritek brand DVD-+R from www.meritline.com I have had great results from them (over 600+ burned copies). Only problem i have had is with this new batch sent... they burn perfectly fine, but they are not working on my older dvd player, just my newer one.
