Any Japanese brand name will be fine. Verbatim/Mitsubishi, TDK, and Taiyo Yuden (brand name "That's" in Japan) are mentioned most frequently. I use them too.
Verbatim works 100% for me! Had glitches with Ritek and Imation in the past...
Excuse my naivety but I have never bought discs before this is my first recorder, should I be going for the - or the + variety, the machine supports the following DVD+RW/-RW,+R/-R, DVD+R dual layer discs.
I remember buying "Thats" metal audio cassettes back in the 80's!! they were perfect for my Dragon.

It is timing out a lot today??
Generally, disc type doesn't matter, but...
1. You can format DVD-RW as VR or Video mode.
2. You can record 16:9 aspect ratio picture only on DVD-R/RW.
3. DVD+RW, are generally good, but it can store only 4:3 aspect ratio picture.
4. DVD-R/RW are more compatible with standalone DVD players.
For more details - see pages 8 and 9 of your manual.
After finalization, both -R and +R are virtually the same. Most, if not all, players and PC drives can play/read them. Personally I do not use the rewriteable discs. The HDD can do everything the RW discs do and more. I think Fuji DVDs are made by Taiyo Yuden, but not 100% sure.
