I bought about 10 Maxell DVD-Ram discs over the last 2 years and everyone of them have failed. I bought them at BB and Walmart. Panasonic DVD-RAMS over the last 2 years have never failed. The Maxells recorded erratically at times and then just failed to record getting "incompatible disc" on the Panny DVD recorders. Never again will I buy a Maxell disc.
