but why? because they are memorex? or because they are dvd-r?
well, I was looking for an answer on whether to use +R or -R
Both DVD+R and DVD-R may be of corresponding quality, and for my own purposes, on the consoles I have used, I have always gotten excellent results with high quality DVD-R discs. So those are what I have kept using, normally of the Verbatim brand.
But for dual layer discs there appears to be some odd price distortion such that +R discs are significantly cheaper than -R discs of the same quality, so for dual layer discs I do buy +R.
These are still of the Verbatim sales brand as usual for my discs, though the real manufacturer can vary. But in recent years all Verbatim discs I've bought are in fact made by Mitsubishi, which I see as a very good thing.

thank you for your advice.
what advice do you have about defragmenting your ISOs before you burn? suggested program? any other methods to help with successful burns?
My 1GHz Pentium 3 (2nd hand in 2005, but was manufactured somewhere in year 2001) used to be able to burn discs very well (Performance was about the same as my new PC from this year)... even my father's older Pentium 3 800MHz (From year 2000) could do it rather well.
They are all able to burn discs rather well because their drive buses were already rather fast (ATA-100 IDE bus), and even modern HDDs won't really transfer data much faster than that.
Don't burn your discs at a too low speed (Some discs will not be burned well at low speeds).Quote:
suggested program? any other methods to help with successful burns?
If the disc can be burned at 16x maximum, then go for a speed somewhere between 8x-16x.
O usually stick to verbatim dvd-r and the games have been perfect
