vamsiklal bought the same ones I did at Fry's. They are branded Optimum but are made by cmc according to the ID code. I have used 6 that were verified by imgburn and all have played back from start to finish with no problems. Fry's also carry's Memorex with a Ritek ID at everyday price of $24.99 for 15@ a disc price of $1.67. I have had no problems with verify or playback with those either.

Thanks for the info. I was buying the Memorex BD-R 25's at Newegg for alot more $. These Memorex BD-R's work great. I burn them at 8x on my Pioneer BDR203. No coasters so far.

Optical Quantum

I had used only 2 brands so far, one Verbatim for BD-RE, and Optical Quantum (rated 4x but burns @ 8x on my LG BH08).
It is quite a fun to watch a disc burn at 36.xxx Mb/sec = )

The Verbatim BD-RE detected only at 1x on my burner (what a pain) even if it is sold as 2x. So far, Verbatim sucks.

Absolutly no problem with the discs so far. They are available at cheap price. Check NewEgg (got mine 74$ CAD for printable surface, but you can get the same discs LOGO for 64$ / 25 qty).

Also, they have a printable to hub version, my favarite, but also the most expansive so far. Check them out they sold pretty everywhere.

Interesting you'd mention the 1x problem. I had the same problem with my Sony BD-REs. I reformatted them (long format) and they then started working at 2X.

Same here. After a full format, which takes a very long time for me ( almost 2 hours ), now they burn at 2X.

Anybody knows where can I get inexpensive BD-R printable media from a website that ships internationally (outside the US) ?

I recently had purchased a 10 pack spindle of Optimum brand 4x BD-R 25GB media for $14.99. It looked like a pretty good deal!
Disc ID: CMCMAG-BA3-00.
Well, only 8 out of 10 discs worked properly, and those 8 also verified correctly with IMGBurn.
Two of the discs would not even start to burn, throwing out an error message. If I ejected the discs and tried again, IMGBurn reported the discs as empty/recordable, but as soon as you clicked burn, it would error out again. They will not write.
I do not believe I will use this brand again, since I have never had a problem with the Memorex/Ritek brand after 45 plus burns.

What burner? I have used about 4 of the 10 packs from Frys. All have burnt and verified OK with Imgburn. I use a Pioneer BD-205.

Verbatim BD-R

For any canucks in this thread, Newegg Canada has the 10 pack of Verbatims 4x for $34.99. I picked up a couple packs when they had a free shipping promo.

I bought some of these Ritek BD-Rs for $2.22 ea (box of 25) and have had good luck so far (I've burned about 20 of them).

My burner is a Matshista UJ-225S, which came with my Dell XPS M1530 Laptop.
I'm not sure how to tell if that burner supports what different media, but 8 out of 10 leads me to believe it does, and the media is suspect.

You're probably right, but OTOH maybe that's why 2 have failed.

I dunno if MediaCodeSpeedEdit works with your drive, but it looks at firmware to see if specific disc types are supported:

Verbatim LTH

I noticed these on Amazon for something like $38 bucks for qty 20, and wonder if anyone here has tried them. I found this document

http://www.verbatim.com/userfiles/fi...tibility_2.pdf

which suggests they should work with my LG BD burner, but it's not as clear whether they'll be read by my BD player (which is not on their list).

Anyone here try them? I dunno if the "organic AZO layer" is inferior in some way to the regular "inorganic" type heretofore available, but they are significantly cheaper (best deal I can find on Verb BD-Rs is $29 at newegg for 10).

I just ordered 20 I'm betting you can't beat it.
