are people still debating over this?
do people really not have 30 bucks for a proven burner, and 2 dollars max for the disc to backup your 63 dollar initial investment of a game?
are you really so cheap you would rather spend your time in XS finding a solution to a problem thats had a solution since the beginning?
PLEASE do us a favor and read the backup faq before posting.
I have already purchased a brand new Pioneer DVR-112D for this task. I have also purchased 2 brands of DVD+R DL media.
I dont know what its like in the USA but here in the UK Verbatim branded discs are approx 3 times the price of other premium brands of DVD Dual Layer media. A box of cheap Dual layer is £6 for 10, Verbatim is £17 for 10. I have used Verbatim discs at work in my job and have had failures with Verbatim discs in many drives. I feel Verbatim like TDK and other brands are hyped up to be better than they actually are. I have burnt thousands of discs over the years and providing the burner is good cheap media works just as well as the expensive stuff. I cant vouch for this with Dual layer media however but i would imagine the situation is the same.
As for reading the forum, i have read pratically every post in my intrest areas in the past 2 weeks. If the search facility worked and didnt error out perhaps i could find information easier
