Another question, does anybody have the Staples media code? Or is it a bunch of different types?

Bought 2 for me and 2 for my dad today. I guess you can't go wrong for $8. Here's hoping my Cyberhome Recorder doesn't have a problem with these.

People re asking about the media code because they want to know who really made them. Also knowing where they were made would help. Japan > Taiwan.

Thanks for posting the codes.

Looks like the -R code is the same as what Memorex and KHypermedia use. I'll be taking a pass on these.

50pk for $8. It can't be that bad a deal even with CMC discs, right

What's the diffence between DVD-R and DVD+R?
It's never been explained to me, but I just assumed that they are two different formats (similar to VHS vs. Betamax). But don't most burners use either now? So what's the difference? Which should I purchase?
I use this on my Dell:
Dual Drives: 16x DVD-ROM Drive + 16x DVD+/-RW w/dbl layer write capability

They are just two different formats established by different companies. DVD-R is said to have better compatibility with older players. However, new players nowsaday can read both formats anyway.

I didn't have much hope for the quality of this media so I only picked up one spool of +R. But I burned one at 8x and tested it for quality and found it to be in the same quality range as TY media.

Disc : DVD+R , CMC MAGE01 [CMC Magnetics Corporation]
Speed : 4x
ECC blocks sum (PI/PIF) : 8/1

KProbe, which only works with Lite-On drives. That's the main reason I keep a Lite-On drive.

Or you can use Plextor's PlexTools with a Plextor drive.

Or Nero's CD-DVD Speed with the couple of other brand drives that support PI/PO scanning.

Also bought their burner

I got in on both the Staples brand DVD-R media and the I/O Magic DVD burner rebate deal. This store was substituting two 25-packs of media for a 50 pack. (They were cleaned out of both +R and -R 50-packs already on Tuesday morning.)
The SKU on the pack is 560847. The package label did not specify a speed, so I thought I might be getting 4x or even 2x, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out it is 8x. Nero Infotools says Manufacturer ID is FUJIFILM03.

I've only had the chance to burn a few DVD's so far in my new burner, but both drive and media have worked flawlessly so far.

This is posted too late for their big sale, but might be useful to someone using a coupon or in a future sale. The question is, how long will it be until another deal this good comes along - perhaps with KHypermedia at Office Max?
