I havent burned a dvd in a long time but I do blurays from time to time.
I have always used Verbatim ever since I got my first cd burner in the 90s.

I also use the Verbatim brand.
If they are videos of great importance to you, I recommend keeping a digital backup on one —or more— external hard drives, because DVDs are bound to get damaged over time.

I didn't know anyone actually used DVDR's these days. The discount stores are full of them, but everyone I know just goes DVR.
I bought a DVDR recorder about 10 years ago, but never could figure out how to work it.


Call it what you want, it's alright, it's rock and roll to me

All of my Elvis stuff is on an external hard drive for instant access all day, every day. My hard copies are elsewhere in my room.
