      DVD Media

      I was looking online for some DVD R discs to see if they were cheaper than the shops. There is so much choice though that I don't know whether - or + would be better and which discs offer the best value for money. If anyone has any recommendations then please let me know.

      Hi before you go for cheap discs make sure they are compatiable with your dvd burner in computer.

      I have three computers with different burners in, some discs will burn in one but not the others.

      I like using datawrite grey with a purple face to it they are dvd-r, have not had problems with any of my burners with that disc.

      I was thinking about these ones. My DVD burner is a Philips DVDR1628P1, I searched Google but couldn't find much information about it. I don't know whether to go ahead and purchase these ones or not.

      Hi I stated using these Burn-media.co.uk they also take online payment with paypal very quick service if you have account with paypal make sure it is confirmed address

      Make sure your firmware on burner is up to date as well
