    Hi,

    Just wanted to know which DVD-r's people are using and having success with on the E-20.

    I've tried Datasafe gen 3's and one Mirror and four TDK's.

    Upto now the TDK's are the only one's which have recorded and playback fine on the E-20 and my panny XV10 dvd player.

    Upto now the other two brands have recorded fine but have had trouble on playback.The discs play for a while then stutter and pixelate on both the E-20 and Xv 10.

    I'm going to try some JVC discs and maybe some FWS discs,anybody had any experience with these discs.

    Any links to where to by DVD-r/RAM media would also be of great help

    All The Best......7even

    I've been slowly making my way through all the DVD-r's and rw's I can find to see what ones will play on my Tag or Ps2 or Xbox.

    Found out that none so far work on the Tag :(
    All but an unbranded one and the White Label ones work on my PS2
    And only the TDK and the Datasafe ones work on the Xbox.

    Best place to go for your blanks is www.121cdr.co.uk
    Very good service and very cheap prices.
    You can get Bulkpaq DVD-R's for as little as 48p each :)

    You might find it easier just ordering up one of all the disks they have a see what works on your player.

    you could try these as they are 4th gen and they say that they havent found a machine that they havent worked on which sounds promising.

    I only ever use FWS discs, just had 1 coaster..
    All work on my PS2 and JVC 302..

    By the way gizlaroc..
    There is no such thing as a Gen4 dvd-r...it was all a big con.
    What they are is ICE white top...
