    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...

    Thanks Guys

    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.

    Cheers

    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. :)
