    I use Memorex myself, but it really depends on what you are burning that will determine whether you use DVD-R or DVD-RW. One is Rewritable. One is not.

    I've had good luck with generics (ie, brand does not seem to matter), BUT some DVD players do not like "+". Be sure to read the spec that came with your player. It's in the first one or two pages. In my experience, even if it says it reads/plays "+", I've seen some that still won't. Never had problems with "-". I recommend only DVD-R, vs. RW. Also, have not seen a difference in play-back quality with + vs - .

    I am a great believer in tayo yuden, never had a failure with them although they are expensive. Another good and cheaper brand is Infiniti.
    I alway use +RW for rewriting and always -R for permanent recordings. +RW are convenient as they do not need finalizing to view on tv etc.
