    just to say thanks for the link to RGB Direct.

    I took your advice, and placed an order with them last night for the E50. I have advised my retailer this morning, that I no longer require the one thats due on Friday.

    Please could you let me know the place were you get your -r from for 50p each, as pointed out in one of your other postings. Also, any brands to avoid - as I said before my main concern is archiving, so a decent disc is needed.

    Thanks again for your help

    Have a look at the DVD-Rs on this site:
    http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk/
    They do a media test package so you might want to try that to get a feel of which disks you prefer and which work best with your recorder (The E50 has effectively three different drives in different models based on the Matsush*ta D321a or D321c or Panasonic D321b which means some media works better in some drives than others). They have White Label disks available (in a spindle of 25) for £0.49 (inc VAT).

    Personally I normally use:
    http://www.digitalpromo.co.uk/
    However their site is broken at the moment.

    Also try here:
    http://www.blankcdr.co.uk/acatalog/CDR_Supplies_Direct_DVD_Blank_Media_20.html
    They have DVD-Rs at £0.49 (plus VAT) but I have used this service and they aren't very fast. Some people rave about them though.

    If your going to archive I would spend that little bit more on a disk - around £1.50-£2 each - just to guarantee it will last the duration. I do strongly suggest trying the trial pack though.
