    Lightbulb Best disc for my situation?

    So after a bad burn with low quality discs, I'm out to buy better discs. I know Verbatim DVD-R 4.7G...but I am also considering DVD+RW discs. Here's why:
    |>I have 2 computers - one can't bitset, and one can't get 1x or 2x speed.
    |>DVD+RWs can be bitset after burning
    What I'm really asking is: for these specs, what is the best disc type and brand for backing up a disc?

    +rw disks are not a good idea, and I know of noone who has had good luck with them.

    I don't even think that -RW will work, I tried it once with no luck.

    Get some verbatim -R, but look here first. http://www.wiihacks.com/blogs/stomp_...watch-out.html

    Cool article,bro. Really was.
    Question: Does Verbatim make DVD-Rs with azo dye AND a Lightscribe label surface? Lightscribe is my homie, because I sure as heck know that I don't have the drawing talent to make even the Wii Sports label with sharpies...

    Verbatim DVD-Rs with azo dye will do. (For those without th azo dye mark on the package, which is cheaper in price, i doubt...)
    For Lightscribe, it's your favor. i used to have my handscribe !

    billyhome, you mentioned a mark for disc packages with azo dye. Could you tell me what it looks like, because I need to see if the lightscribe verbatim discs come with the dye as well.
    @nightstah: that wasn't what I was asking. I needed to know if the the verbatim discs could have lightscribe and azo, not if they existed.
