Just received ten Opto DVD-R's from Professional Tape and Comm Supply. Burned one with Pioneer A03 at 2X speed with no issues. Also plays back in three standalones, Pioneer DV-09, Pioneer DVL-90 and Toshiba SD2150. Had issues with discs from CD-Recordable not playing back in standalones. These discs from Pro-Tape cost a bit more but no issues yet. ($2.69 in Jewel Case)

I note that Pro-Tape no longer sells Optodisc DVD-R.


Has anyone used their $2.39 noname brand DVD-R?

The real question I ahve is did it REALLY burn at 2x? The software will tell you its going to burn at 2x, but really burns at 1x taking twice as long as the time it gives before it starts burning.

Yeap. I have purchased the DVD PRO DVD-Rs from Meritline and have had great success. Only bad thing is that they only burn at 1x. However, standalone compatibility is what I am after. And so far so good. They play in the following players without problems:


Panasonic RP56 (Does DVD-RW too!)

Sony DVP-530

Apex AP1200

Proscan DIVX DVD Player

Sharp DV-710


I have an Xbox, but have yet to play DVDs in it. I will buy the DVD adapter today and let you guys know how it goes. None of these discs have went bad yet either. All I need is for Pioneer to engineer a 2x write strategy into the firmware for the DVR-104 with this brand of DVD-R and I am set and I am set.

You results look good, but what I was actually wondering about was the generic stuff from Pro-Tape.com. See here .
