    Hi
    Having just bought my first DVD writer I thought I'd better check out compatible media for my 2 DVD players.
    I have a Sony DVP-NS930 which feeds my main set up and a rather old DVP-S715 in the living room. Does anyone know if either player has any preference of recordable media? I'll probably won't be using RW discs very much (if at all).
    Any advice greatly received

    Andrew

    Ritek G04

    But be careful with the 715 - do not go over 4GB

    Ritek's Grade A discs are the best. These are Ridisc, Ridata and Traxdata.

    I use Ridisc 4x DVD-R's (G04 dye) with my Sony players (Sony NS525, NS585 and NS900).

    They can be bought as little as £1.79 for 10 from blankdiscshop.

    £1.79 per DVD-R is expensive in my book, if you go to bigpockets.co.uk you can get DVD-R's for around 40p each and they all work fine for me

    In the context of this thread it might have been helpful to state what player(s) you have.

    I said that was for 10. So it is 17.9p per disc. I got 100 of them for less than £18. I paid £33 for 25 discs over a year ago for Datawrites +R's. The Ridiscs are also a lot better.

    Did you go for the Ridiscs?

    Apparantly, SVP are on low stock of the 4x and will not be available anymore. The 8x discs are just as good and use G05 dye. They are a bit more expensive. They will have to do once the 4x are gone. It is why I ordered 100 of them. That amount should last me for a long time.

    BTW, I still recommend burning at 2x if possible. Burning as fast as you can shouldn't be important.

    I did go for the Ridiscs just 4 packs of 10 - hope they can still supply them but there is plenty of choice if they can't. I also went for some surface printable discs - for special occasions!

    I'll bear the burning speed in mind thanks :)
