which dvd to buy

I am about to get started in trading dvd ausing both trades and some b & p offers. I am really new to this and nt sure what dvd's to buy. I have looked around the site for a description of all the different types, but haven't found one so far. Could somebody point me in the right direction so I could buy the best thing once and not the wrong stuff over and over.

Thanks for any help,

Zach

Re: which dvd to buy

The first thing to point out is that the only shows you can buy legally are real, retail coppies of those recorded by a proper music label.

I'm pretty sure he means which DVD media to buy.

Qstick: One of the things you might have to experiment with a little bit is which media works best with your burner. So, I'd suggest buying a small quantity of one brand and making sure it works well with your burner so you're not out of pocket too much dough.

With that being said, I like Fujifilm DVD's - specifically the ones that say "Made in Japan" on them.

Re: which dvd to buy

Basically if its Sony, Infiniti, TDK or Fuji, its a safe bet.

I don't know how things are now, but at first it seemed DVD+ was the new VHS while DVD- was the new Betamax. So obviously I use DVD+

Re: which dvd to buy

I was wondering which dvd media to buy. Where would a good place be to get the Japanese Fuji DVD's? Is there a reputable mail-order place/ Also - where on the label would it say made in Japan?

Thanks for all your help,l

Zach

Re: which dvd to buy

I use Japanese Taiyo Yudens only...
but I accept the following in trades (the country of manufacture is important):
Quote:
1ST CLASS MEDIA
Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
PVC = Pioneer (Japan) = (-R)(-RW) ... media is no longer made
MXLRG0x = Maxell (Japan) = (-R)(-RW)
YUDENT, TYG0x = Taiyo Yuden (Japan) = (-R)(+R)
MCC, MKM = Mitsubishi Chemicals (Singapore/Taiwan) = (-R)(-RW)(+R)(+RW)
TDK, TTG0x, TTH0x = TDK Corp (Taiwan/Japan) = (-R)(-RW)
SONY0xD = Sony (Japan/Taiwan) = (-R)(-RW)
I actually just got a 100 pack of TY's in today...supermediastore also included 3 free highlighter pens for me

Re: which dvd to buy

i usually order from either http://www.supermediastore.com or http://www.rima.com ...the best you can buy are the Taiyo Yuden's mentioned above...other brands i've used with little problems are the Fuji's [made in japan only], TDK, and Sony.

check this thread periodically for deals on media...quite a few links to online stores as well

Re: which dvd to buy

true chachi, but Japanese Fujis are just TYs with a different branding

Qstick--in all honesty, if you want consistent high quality media, Taiyo Yuden's are the only way to go
