Disregard DVD writer- the one I used wasn't listed as a choice.
I authored with DVD Studio Pro 2.0 and burned with an Apple Superdrive on a G4 Powerbook 1GHZ 15.2" Ti. I do not recommend using this brand of DVD media if you own a Mac. I successfully burned only 1 DVD. After that, my computer started rejecting them. I gave up after 4-5 additional attempts/coasters.

I get up to 50% write errors with bargain media - Ritek G03 is practically 100% at 2X on my Sony DRU500A (2.0F). Very reliable and a good value considering hundreds burned with virtually no coasters. I recently tried the G04 Ritek media and similar results - Burned all 25 at 4X with zero errors.

This is for the inkjet printable.

It appears that Ritek has altered the formulation of their media. Their discs used to burn flawlessly on my Pioneer 104 with 1.31 firmware. I've now had nine spindles from two retailers all fail miserably. One retailer tested what I had sent back, and said that they worked fine on a 105 and on a Sony DRU500A. Prassi reported that the issue was media related. I would avoid using Ritek media for Pioneer 104's, at least with 1.31 firmware.

Nero 5.5.9.13 had issues with UDF settings on burning. If i had it set at 1.02 it would only play in one of my stand alone sytems, burned at UDF 1.50 and had the exact opposite. Once I burned with the Record Now DX program bundled with the Sony, each disk works in both my stand alones.

7 coasters out of 7 attempts. Am now wishing I had paid more attention to Sony's list of certified media and less attention to other sources claims that this Ritek media would work in the DRU-500AX! $31 for 25 disks looked like a good price, but doesn't look so good now!

These looked beautiful -- but (for me.. in this case) stunk! The burn process went smoothly enough using either nero/primo at 1x on my Toshiba SD-R5002 drive, but I couldn't get them to play in a whole lot. I tried 4 standalone dvd players, and a ps2 (for movies/games) and none of them worked right. I could see the data fine when I put the disc back into my computer though. weird. I was expecting so much more... now I'm going to have to shell out some more $$$, unless I just got a bad batch?

Bad Batch alert!!! I had been using a previous batch of Riteks I purchased from Supermediastore two months ago, all burned perfectly at 1x and 2x on my Sony DRU500A and Sony DRX500ULX drives. Now with this new batch I bought this week (3/25/03)so far all first 4 I've tried are bad. Tried 3 at 2x and 1 at 1x...all failed. I'm using Nero 5.5.10.15, but it has nothing to do with it since I can still burn perfect copies with the previous batch of Ritek G03. This is so sad, just when I had found a cheap media that burned perfectly at 2x and played on all STB DVD players I tried them on. Here's the media code for the bad batch:

Media does not work well for movies when burned with 2x, but works amazingly well at 1x for movies, i am assuming for data 2x would still work fine. However I did noticed a difference between these discs manufactured ID, compared to the one displayed here, however they are ritek g03s, also the edges are super smooth, and the dvd seems super thick, and the purple (the burning side) seems really really dark, and very high quality like. here are the discs ID
