Pioneer 5100 - what media


Standard Member
have the Pioneer arriving this weekend. Any recommendations on media to use or, more importantly, any brands to avoid? Best place to get them?

Thanks in advance. :D

I assume that Pioneer doesn't make disks??
Pioneer DO make disks. They are produced in Japan and are available worldwide including the UK. Last set I saw were in a branch of PC World.


Riteks are a good brand and a reasonable price I have been using them for years on my PC Writer with no problems after storage, avoid princo, bulkpaq and mirrors when looking go with the type of dye used as they often change. Have seen datasafe use ritek and princo dye. Personally not used in disks in my 5100 yet :)
