Some good stuff in this thread...

Also make sure that the burner you have is compatible with the media.  Most
good media manufacturers (ex: Plextor) will provide a chart listing
appropriate media.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] DVD-R recommendations?

I am preparing to archive a large number of 24/96 audio files to DVD-R. I am
looking for recommendations for types and/or brands of DVD-R discs. Are gold
discs worth the extra expense? Any particular manufacturers with proven
track records for reliability?
With CDR media I have had good luck with Mitsui/MAM-A and Taiyo-Yuden, but I
haven't done much work involving DVD-R to date.
