Looks like a good offer if suitable for your burner. I suggest you check first on your burners' web site.

Mine is quite temperamental first DVD disks I bought all gave me burn failed messages from Nero, although could burn Cd's no prob.

thanks mate, i will leave it open a little while longer and see if anyone has a good reason why not to buy them (dont know whether to go for 8x discs though)

i am going to a compy fair on sunday so i will see whats on offer there before buying these (i dont like delivery charges, seems to take away the good savings on the actual product)

If your DVD Burner is multi format, there should be no probs. Check with you DVD Burner's website to ensure that these discs are compatible with it. No reason why they wouldn't be but best to make certain.

the drive is a NEC 2500A dual format 8x drive bundled with nero6

i have checked the manufacturers web site and they dont mention Infiniti disks, dont know if that means they wont work or if they just dont reccomend them.

NO.

If you are not sure they are what you want/need/can use, don't buy them. do a bit more research..

Try e-mail to supplier, and ask them if they are any good for your hardware. If they say 'YES' and they are 'no good' you have a good case for a full refund. If they say 'NO' then it's only cost you a few key-strokes for an e-mail.

Have a quick butchers at click here lists all sorts of media suitable for your burner. Good prices as well. Unless you wanted the St George's cross!

The reviewer on the Ebuyer site says that the disks are made by Sony. Another make CD-R disk I bought from Ebuyer were very good at a low price, and I have no reason to think that these aren't equally good value. Any CD-R or CD-RW brand could give problems with some models of burners. If you can afford to take a chance with nearly £20, give them a try. Otherwise see if you can buy them in a smaller pack to find out if your burner is happy with them before committing yourself to a 50 pack.
