Bestbuy Sony Dual-Layer DVD+R 25 pack 39.99

Is that a bad deal? I had a 10 dollar coupon so I got them for 29.99....

In my opinion, that's a pretty fair deal.

Getting an extra $10 made it great.

To the OP:

Could you please post the Media Code for the Sony discs that you bought? I'd like to see who's manufacturing it. Thanks!

A testing program like CD-DVD Speed will tell you. Do you have Nero? It comes with it in the toolkit.

Also can be downloaded here:

Ritek d01 media is suspect quality, at best. Typically, people have problems at the layer break with these discs. There is a fair amount of variability between burners and players, though. If you already opened it, give it a try in your player. Maybe it'll play OK. Don't count on it being of archival quality, though.

I have had the best luck with Verbatim DVD+R DL. Usually costs a little more, but I've never made a coaster out of one...
