Taiyo Yuden +R 8X supports burning up to 16X and Verbatim +R 8X also supports up to 16x ,You wont get any better discs, with the Verbs dont get the 'White Pearl " type the dye manufacturer is memorex (crap) you want the MCC dye. These are all I use with an NEC3500 burner and not 1 bad burn so far :thumbup:

once you get above 4.3 gigs you're into Dual Layer (DVD9) discs that you can put 8.5 gigs worth of video on without compression . These discs are a good bit more expensive than single layer (DVD 5).If you need the D/L's then use Verbatim Dual Layer +R discs they are the only discs that give good results consistently. I only use DVD5 4.7 single layer, remove all the junk from my video, use a little compression and they play and look fine and cost about $ .40 cents each :thumbup:

you mentioned -r in the first post , depending on your burner you may only be able to write -r and not +r.

likewise, depending on your burner, you may not be able to write dual layer discs with it anyway, so check this out before you buy any dual layer discs ( there not cheap ;) )

 

if your drive will only write to -r the -r taiyo yuden 8x are equally as good as the +r ones Polopony mentioned for dv5 work. they are the only ones i use .

In order of quality and consistency

 

SL

TYG0X's

Yuden T0X's

everything else

 

DL

Verbatim + format

nothing else ranks

 

 

a gross generalization!

I don't do dual layer, but the one thing I know is don't use shrink!

 

shrink won't open iso's, it makes them

could save me a few dual layer discs

 

since i reauthor main files only and break up unusally long compilations into 2 disks and am still waiting

to see a high quality scan of a DL burn, I'll stick with SL disks(whose technology has almost matured).

also to open an ISO in shrink , FILE button >open disc image ( on sub menu)

 

you have ISO' s associated with winrar in winrars settings , simply go to winrar, and remove iso as a file association .

in winrar OPTIONS>SETTINGS>INTEGRATION and UNcheck the box next to ISO and Ok it

 

as for write speed with dual layer discs, it really depends on what speed your burner can write to D/L at .

whats the exact make and model of it, or what speed does the manual say it will wite to D/L at ?

choose the pi/po option in dvd info pro and insert a disc , if your drive doesnt support scanning then you cant start the scan.

alternative there is buy a drive that does like a benq1640
