Ok folks, I'm new to this dvd stuff. I need some opinions. i have 2 different spindles of blank dvds.
The first spindle is Memorex dvd+r, 8x, 4.2 gb. It has a mfg. id.: cmc mag & media type id e01.
The second spindle is Staples house brand dvd+r, 8x, 4.2 gb. It has a mfg. id.: mbipg101; mfg. name: moser baer india; media type id: r04

Now, my question - is this stuff junk?

I've had good and bad Memorex CMCMAGE01 media.... so I can't say for that one. I have almost no experience with MBIL stuff so I can't help there either.

But the Memorex for sure can go either way :cry:
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

MBI discs are quite decent too. DOn't overspeed them, keep them at their rated speeds. Some can have PO spikes toward the end though.

In the new c´t-magazine is a test of some media. MBI seems to be good and compatible for many writers
