What you want to do, unless you already have it, is get yourself either DVD Info
, or DVD Identifier
they are software programs you can download for free online. What they do is...you place one of your DYNEX DVD's in your DVD Burner in your computer, and you can find out what the "Media ID" is of whatever DVD you put in.
Once you know what the Media ID is, go to this website...http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm
...and see where the Media ID ranks within the First to Fourth Class Media.
Obviously 1st Class is better than the ones below it, but even within their respective classes the higher the Media ID's rank per class, the better they are.
Just a few examples of great Media ID's are:
anything starting with MCC
, or YUDEN
As long as you can stay within First and Second Class you will really do fine.
Post a reply back to us and let us all know what Media ID your DYNEX DVD's are.
