    Must have been asked a 1000 times but please help me out.
    I've just had about 10 useless discs and need to get some more for a Panasonic dmr e50.
    Can someone please advise me on the most reliable disc and the best supplier - preferably online.
    Many thanks.

    www.121cdr.co.uk aka SVP
    buy a trial pack from them, several different disks
    or you could try

    CMC MAG AE1 sold under the Datasafe Printable and Datawrite printable labels
    FUJIFILM03 sold under the Datawrite 8x and Bulqpak 8x labels
    prodiscS01 sold as Datasafe 4x hub printable

    all seem reasonable quality at the moment, but you can only tell for sure in your recorder by trying some.

    Thanks for that.
    If I get Panasonic own brand discs are they more likely to work? If so, I'd rather pay more for those than throw another load in the bin.

    If you want Panasonic brand you can get them from here Panasonic shop
    I've had great success with Verbatim DVDs which I buy from SVP.

    Thanks for help guys.
    Gone for Panasonic shop £22.49 for 20. Not cheap but, hopefully, reliable.

    Just to add to JohnG's post, at SVP you'll also find Taiyo Yuden (they make the panasonic discs) Discs, excellent discs and they have just come down in price a bit as well, approx £50 for 100.
