What are the best blank disks and blank dvds you can buy?
This is a very popular question! And the short answer is we don't know! It seems as soon as we make up our minds it's one brand a year later or in another state of Australia the batch is bad and so therefore the disks have a high percentage fail rate and high corrupt disk rate.
So is there any real tips on buying blank dvds and blank disks?
It's very common to buy a stack of ten or stack of 50 blank dvds and have 2,3 or maybe 5 or more that just stuff up when you go to finalise your disk, burn information or straight off the get go - the blank dvd just does not work.
We have seen some brands where 90% of the disks cause problems. Without getting technical the recorder you have does make a difference.
- If you are having problems try another brand - don't lose your cool
- If you can, record stuff to a Hard drive first then burn it to disk afterwards - This will save you losing your recording if the disk fails. If the disk fails, because the recorded material is on your HDD (Hard-drive) you can have another shot at copying it over to the disk.
- Even the pros get frustrated with DVD recording! A batch of disks depending on brand, your recorder is good for one season and not the next!
- Familiarise yourself with your recorder - knowing how it functions with timing, and it's inner process can determine a successful finalization and so forth
- Be sure to finalise your disk so that it is compatible with other dvd players
