    What have you guys found to be the best brand of DVDRs to use with the SuperDrive?

    I want to copy a couple DVD movies. On my windows PC I had a few problems with certain brands of DVDRs when copying movies. Just want to save myself money and time instead of trying different brands.

    I've used many different brands and I don't recall any one being noticeably better or worse than another. I usually just get whatever is on sale.:)

    taiyo yuden, verbatim, and ritek are what i use. i'm guessing they are all manufactured by the same factory...dvdrs tend to be made that way

    i've used some off brand dvdrs and not had much trouble. best thing to do is to record at a slow speed, like 2 or 4x

    TDK and Sony, no problems so far. I used to have problems when burning movies on my Sony VAIO notebook that I sold. Burnt movies on the Sony would sometimes not play on my xbox or Sony Home Theatre receiver, hmm go figure. I'd take that same "bad" disc, and make a copy of it using my mac mini, and voila, they would play in any player.

    Any brand seems to be OK now days.
