which media is the best recordable?

dvd-R
dvd+R

I burn dvd's most of the time they work fine, but other times they dont. Is it the media, the player, or encore?

Which company makes the best recordable media? Sony, memorex, tdk, phillips? Thanks

I stuck with Verbatim for a while but still i had the odd DVD not playing at all. I changed to Ritek and there was no change to the amount of discs not playing, some folks swear by taiyo yuden (think that is the correct spelling). It is always a bit hit and miss as to what's good and what's not

I was using Taiyo Yuden then had a couple that are now coasters. I switched to Maxell. Working well. All in all I think it might be good to have a mixture in case you give someone a copy and it doesn't play. I've used Taiyo Yuden, Maxell, Verbatium, and TDK. Happy with all of them.

I've been having a lot of problems with +R lately, basically it seems to skip a lot on playback on set tops.
-R seems to be less problematic for me. Don't know if anyone else shares this experience or not.
Sony VC10 (use +r for standalone mode, and -r for computer mode).

The quality of the media depends on the dye being used for the discs. I wrote this a while back and it may help you out: http://asvideoproductions.com/video/articles/dvdinfo.pdf

DVD-R is best suited for playback in most all DVD players. The first generation players may have trouble reading them, but about 95% of the players out there will play them. DVD+R don't playback in machines unless the player states it plays DVD+R. I don't use DVD+R, I think their best suited for storing files on for your computer.

If the DVD-R you are using skips or jumps, try taking it out and putting it back in again, sometimes the reader may weird out on the disc. If it happens again, then you might have bad disc.
