    Don't buy DVD-RW disks - the Panasonic E55 doesn't write to them. It records on DVD-RAM and DVD-R disks.

    As for which brands to buy - well there are loads of 'good brands'. For DVD-RAMs you won;t go far wrong by using Panasonic, Maxell and TDK brands. For DVD-R Sony, Pioneer, Panasonic, Maxell, TDK and Verbatim are good in my experience.

    Some good, cheap online suppliers of media:

    I agree with Rasczak - Stay away from "cheap" brands - they are just not worth the aggravation. The E55 will play DVD-RW - it just won't record them.
