    Not that relevant to set-top DVD recorders but I thought I would post anyway :) RITEK have added DVD-RAM discs to their new range of media (previous RITEK DVD-RAM media was rebadged Maxell):
    Whilst not of earth shattering importance it does mean there are now three DVD-RAM producers: Panasonic, Maxell and Ritek. Industry wide there has been a general increase in DVD-RAM support: LiteOn is considering adding DVD-RAM read/write support to their DVD burners (and already has partial support on their DVD-ROMs). This coupled with Toshiba, Samsung, Iomega, Pioneer, Hitachi-LG and Panasonic means support is continuing to get better - which is good for everyone. :clap:

    at bigpockets.co.uk you can get RIDATA (RITEK) double sided 9.4GB cartridge discs at £3.49. They work perfectly on Panasonic e55 & e85.
    Cheapest I've found unless someone knows better.

    I noticed on the LG forums that a poster had mentioned (had picture of the discs/covers, with either Korean or Japanese writing on it) that Taiyo Yuden have also started producing Ram Discs.

    I know next to nothing about RAM disks, but do these double-sided ones work n the Panasonic E85 etc. giving you double the capacity, and any disadvantages over the single-sided?

    Double sided ones will work in any RAM recorder giving double capacity, but note that you do have to turn the disc over to use the other half of the disc.

    I have been using the Ritek 9.4G DVD-RAM for months with no problem whatsoever in both the Panasonic and the Toshiba. Let's hope that the "new" Ritek are just as reliable as the rebadged Maxells - I never knew that!
