Actually there is, i've had numerous discs over the years that wont work in X player or arent recgonised by Y machine, now i always use Verbatim. In fact, just the other day i tried a cheaper disc to record something in my Panasonic DVD Recorder, it wouldnt recognise it, locked up and refused to spit the disc back out no matter what i did!

If they work though, that doesnt matter!

HOW TO UN-JAM THE DISC TRAY!
1. Shut it down, even if you have to pull the plug
2. Restart
3. When restart is over, press and hold OFF for as long as it takes to shut off (can be 30 sec. or longer)
4. Press and hold OPEN for as long as it takes (can be 1 min. or longer!) till the tray opens

Just to point out they also do regular-sized 4xDVD+R, 4xDVD-R, 2xDVD+RW, 2xDVD-RW, 8xCD-R, 4xCD-RW for £1 too.

not all necessarily as good value, but that's their whole media range :) (Prices are for discs only, some stores also sell recordable DVD/CD packs in jewel cases/dvd cases, e.g. 2xDVD+R by TDK for £1).

Shop around, but if you're in urgent need of a blank disc and you have a Poundland nearby, it might be worth checking them out before you go to a computer/stationery store

:) good deal
#9
Chances are there are significant differences from the shop expensive ones.

And online you can get the expensive ones for less than this price anyway.

So, convenient sure, but with several caveats.
#10
not bad price
but as previous comments im sure you can get high quality ones cheaper now from various sites

good deal still

Normal DVDs and CDs (Better Quality aswell usually) can be bought in packs of 50/100 for a decent price per disc.

Personally I wouldn't trust any important data or videos on this disc. Bad quality discs can just stop working, and there is no way of recovering the data. However if you have backups on a hard drive or another form of storage these discs should be ok.

Also decent mini DVDs (10pk TDKs are what I use and they are really good) can be bought from ebuyer for about £4 (However postage is usually high if your not ordering other items), but it is better to be safe than sorry.

I wouldn't really trust this kind of media on something as precious as video recordings. I would hate to find that whatever important event I was filming ended up as a CRC error and a distant memory.

Same size disc that the Gamecube uses?
#14
seen this deal the other day in poundland and bought like ten packs
but once i got home i couldnt get them to work with my brand new samsung dvd camera
can anyone help?
#15
I wouldn't touch em unless it was a last resort cheap rubbish,
#16
I'd also say that it's worth investing in good quality media if you want to be sure that your data is still there a year later. A few pence a disk Vs a lot of heartache when you've lost all the baby pics? It's not worth the risk. I have bought cheap media in the past but bitter experience has taught me to stick to the best like Taiyo Yuden.
#17
there okay i remember some guy tried selling them on here for more lol
#18
Godspeed

Yes, exactly the same, most Wii's and gamecubes will scream at you if you put these in though.

Shame really.

Following on from my previous message, just to clarify my price explanations:

If you're intending to buy a load of DVD's, and/or archival quality is your thing, then go online and get them in bulk. Leave this post, there is nothing for you here!

If you in a bind, and in need of a blank DVD fast (you have some work to burn to disc and there's no blanks at work), and you only need it to get some work copied over, then you probably only need one or two discs, not 500 of them. And you need it now.

You could go into PC world and buy a pack of 5 TDK DVD-R for £5. They'll be good quality discs. OR you could go into poundland and pick 2 TDK DVD-R for £1. OR risk it and buy their own brand at 4 for £1. It's entirely up to you.

I'd recommend the following two steps to anyone buying blank DVD media, online or offline:

1. Download DVD Identifier for free:
http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/
2. Run DVD Identifier, stick a blank disc in, and click 'Analyse'.
3. This will identify who made the DVD. You're looking for the 'Media Code'.
4. Check the media code against the list here:
http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

You'll know instantly what quality your discs are.

The 4-pack of DVD+R from Poundland come up as INFODISCA01, the DVD-R as OPTODISCR008 on my PC. Both are '2nd class media'
The 2-pack TDK come up as TTH01, '1st class media'.

If you intend to buy a bulk order of discs, I recommend your first order is a wide range of different brands/type so you can check each brand. You don't want to order 500 discs only to find they're all fakes!

Even the most reputable places (in my experience eBuyer) have sold fake DVD's, I once bought a pack of 25 DVD+R from there, every single one coastered. The media code was AML002 (4th class/fake media). I didn't attempt a refund, as I only £5 and sending them back was too much hassle.

@lazygamer - thanks for the info mate...

But surely the dye is just part of the equation? I have just tried my 8cm TDK DVD-R disks, and they have the CMCW02 dye (4th generation, garbage, according to the website you mention). I bought them from eBuyer.

It seems odd to me that a manufacturer like TDK would allow garbage disks to bear their name. So my reasoning is that either the dye is not the be-all-or end-all, or that I have somehow gotten some fake DVDs off eBuyer (who would fake blank DVDs, when the "real" ones are so cheap and plentiful?)

I use my TDKs in my DVD camcorder, and have not had any problems so far (although I also burn the 8cm disks to full-sized DVDs as a precaution...
