I just check SVP and they stopped selling my datawrite +R (4x) - ProDisc 3211 dvd's i usually get.

Now i am wondering which other datawrite DVD's would be the next best thing to get, since i can no longer get my normal dvd's. I prefer to get +R (4x), but i can also burn -R and I do get 400 dvd's once a month.

this is the link - http://svp.co.uk/index.php

i wouldn' mind a few other options that i can use also. I do use a emperex DVD RW which burns -r & +R, so any help will be great but need to know today. as i need to order them today, tommorrow the latest.

In the USA, we pay $15-20 per 50 pack, in general. That is about 9-12. We'll use this as a guide on a "good price" but know the USA gets better prices on media.

Another thing to remember is, in bulk, DVD-R generally cost 10-20% less than DVD+R, when there are sales available. In a store, they cost the same (DVD-R is a bit more, and DVD+R is a bit less).

- MCC and YUDEN probably the best choices,
- I'd burn everything at either 4x or 8x for best results,
- and I'd avoid buying any OVERPRINT discs, not good

Here are a few candidates for you:

A lot of the other stuff on that site is either fakes or crap. Lots of crap.
All that CMC, RITEK and OPTODISC stuff, just not that good a choice.
