DVD DL media recommendations for 24" iMac

Recommended Posts

I have a 24" iMac with a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-875 burner in it. I've always found the Matshita drives used in Macs to be notoriously picky with DVD media.

 

Can anyone recommend a brand of dual layer discs which work reliably in these drives please?

 

thanks,

 

Andrew

I've had good luck with the TDK brand in the UJ-857E drive in my MBP.

Thanks for the recommendation roog. I've had one other recommendation for Verbatim media, which is what I'm currently using with somewhat mixed results.

 

Anyone else?

I think it's also kind of telling that Apple don't sell DVD or CD media in their store any more (at least in the UK), but they do sell backup tapes... Does this represent an unwillingness to endorse a particular brand as being compatible with current Macs?
