    Dual Layered Discs Needed

    Had a hell of a night. Tried Sainsburys, Asda and Tesco trying to find DL discs.

    Has anyone seen a decent deal for verbatims lately? Its for my xbox 360 games backups.

    What does that matter to the discs? I heard the aones are quite good for £6 cheaper? What difference would it make?

    Theres none better available. Amyone who uses a 40p disk for their "backups" is just being tight

    It's a bit of a non-issue though isn't it? If you can get the dirt cheap discs to read fine once you can simply install to the hard drive and be done with it.

    That said I only buy Verbatim for now.

    Whats the general experience with the Memorex ones?

    I see Maplin have 25 pk for £19.99

    What originals? Oh the originals.... I must have misplaced those. :whistling:

    This must be the first legit 360 backup thread I've seen!

    Aww you edited the post - continuity just went out the window.

    Besides it's illegal to copy xbox 360 discs, for backups.

    Says so on the disc.
