I found the issues to be more about the recorder. These used to cost hundreds of dollars but now are 25 dollars. What appears to be sucked out to get to the low price is reliability of the drive. If you want mroe reliable recording, use drives under 2 years old.

Anyone know what the most reliable media disks there are out there?
I have Memorex and TDK?R media disks that are reliable. I also have Verbatim DVD-R media disks.
Lately I have noticed a number of Verbatim DVD-R disks that have been giving me problems with my Lacie disk writer.
It seems I am waiting for my disk writer a lot recently along with the Roxio Toast software waiting for the disk writer to kick in. (Waiting and waiting.)
The problem seems to be with the Lacie software that is trying to read the DVD Verbatim disks.
If I change to a new Verbatim disk, sometimes it will solve the problem and record.
I think there is a problem with Verbatim DVD media disks. I threw out three out of eight new disks this evening because my Lacie could not read the new blank media disk.
Drives me crazy at times.
What media disk manufacturers are the best for us to use?
I am tired of wasting my money purchasing unreliable media disks.
What about you!??
