I purchased a spindle of 50 Fuji dvd-r discs when I bought the E80 and I've used more then half of them with no problems. Twice I received an error message when starting a High Speed dub, but I simply removed the disc, inspected it, didn't see any obvious scratches or fingerprints so I replaced it and tried the dub again, and it worked. I don't really understand why this would happen, but as long as I got it to work & I haven't produced any coasters, so I'm not complaining.
As long as we're on the topic of disc brands, I have a question that maybe someone could answer for me. I recently saw a pretty good deal on TDK-dvd-r (x2) discs, but I hesitated because I wasn't 100% sure that x2 discs would work in the E80. I would assume that they would work fine but obviously the E80 would just record to them at x1 speed. Is this accurate or are only x1 discs compatible with the E80?
