Few questions, what are the exact DVD player and DVD+R drive?
If you have a Sony DVD player youâ€™re probably SOL, if not pick up a 5 pack of diff media from a local store and try them out see what you get. Also try burning at 1x.
I'm sure you can find a report on your DVD player on the internet and see how well or if it will play back DVD-R media. I use a Pioneer DV-333 because it worked with all the media I had and was cheap.
I've duped [monotone voice over "Archived"] about 100 DVDs and they all seem to work well on my Pioneer I've used 3-4 different generic brands.
I buy the cheapest DVD media I can find and burn most at 1x on a computer that is just for ripping and burning so i don't care how long it takes, and good media costs about $2.50 and I get the cheap stuff for $0.75 each.
I've got a Pioneer A04 DVD-R drive btw.
Someday when 8x DVD+R drives come out and whenever the 8x media gets to the $1 range I'll give that a try.
If you can read this the thought police must be napping!
