Did not have much luck with this media, 2 out of 3 disks were coasters. My burner and this media do not get along.

I've burned quite a few movies since I got my Dvd burner. In the beginning it has all been on this TDK media (I've always been happy with their CD-R's). I don't know what I've got listed as a burn speed but I'm pretty sure I usually use 1x (although now I'm paying a lot more attention.) The problem I'm having is starting to show up on 3 or 4 movies I have burned. I'm not sure what program I've used to shrink the movies probably either Clone DVD or DVD shrink. I've probably always used nero to burn with.

Anyways the problem which is the same with all these movies is that towards the end of the movie (maybe the last 20-25 mins) the movie starts playing eratic and the closer it gets to the end it us unwatchable.

Anyone else got similiar complaints.

Burns reliably at 2x speed using DVD Decrypter. Have 1 left in 25 pack and no coasters. My Samsung DVD-P721M DVD player hooked up to my home entertainment center seems to have some problems reading the media (i.e. a certain part of a movie will freeze for a few seconds, then resume a few seconds into the move effectively skipping a few frames). On my computer, both my external Sony DRU-510UL and my internal HL-DT-ST GCC-4240N have no problems.

Every movie I burned on this media at 2x were defective: or the DVD were totally unreadable or the ending of the movie failed, with several "interrupts". On the other way, after I started burning it at 1x (with DVDShrink and Nero 6.3.1.10), I didn't loose a single DVD.

Works very well with no coasters or flaws of any kind with the Plextor burner. Highly recommended for Plextor 708a owners. Just be careful though - TDK is also bundling CMC stuff into their packs, and these don't work well at all for Plextor owners.

Only burns on 1X, and then only about half the time. The other half of the time it says it wrote just fine and the DVD is just the same. It's like the dye is defective or something. Reads REAL slow even when it does work at all. Works worse than the Khypermedia junk stuff I got free after rebate.

May only burn at 2X but who cares, this is much better than the Ritek shinny silver 4X I bought from Meritline. Bought 15pk at Fred Meyer for $24.00, 1 coaster, after I put an adhesive paper label on one.

This media is now on sale for $14.99, I'm getting two more.

MEDIA DOES NOT WORK IF BURNED AT 2X ONLY 1X, READ FURTHER!!!!

These TDKG02000000's I've purchased have left me with unsatisfied results. Burned at 2X they read fine on my computer (I ran a Scandisk and found zero errors). They WILL NOT read on my Apex 5131 player burned at this speed, PERIOD (they work on other players that I've tested). As many of you know Apex is known for COMPATIBILITY, but these discs are simply unreadable burned at this speed!! Burning at 1X the resulting disc should work fine, I highly recommend this burn speed if you want MAXIMUM compatibility.
