As i stated in the previous thread about 8 speed media on the panasonic 95, i am currently using ritek -r x8 (g05) from bigpockets.co.uk. I have found them to be fairly reliable as i believed they are recommended discs using a deep purple ritek dye. However having visited: www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm which was posted on another thread on this forum, Ritek -r discs are in both the 2nd class catogery, but they also appear in the 4th Class (leave well alone) catogery, alongside Piodata. Can anyone please explain the difference please or how to identify which are the crap ones? Also i have taken the advice of a previous postings that recommends sticking with a disc that works for you. Ritek g05 work for me now, but i don't want to discover a year down the line that they don't work anymore...... i would pay a little more for a longer life span if anyone can recommend a brand and where to purchase.
