BTW, I use the same DVD-R media in my JVC DVD recorder and have not had a single failure. And, I
just blew through a bunch of them duplicating a DVD and no failures in the high-speed dupe tower. I
rank these as reliable as T-Y blue-dye CDR media. I actually prefer that to MAM-A gold for my own
playback of CD's because they seem to work in just about any player whereas some old ones don't seem
to like MAM-A gold. One man's experiences, etc.
