This question didn't seem to fit anywhere else better so I posted here.

I need opinions on what would be the best brand/type etc.. of blank DVD's for archival purposes i.e.. sitting on a shelf for a long time etc...

What would you also use for burning software?

Also what am I doing wrong? My tags never post along with any of my posts.

Thanks for any help!

I've never had any problems with Verbatim. Maybe this will help you http://www.digitalfa...s/dvd-media.htm

Another nod for Verbatim.
If not Verbatim, I then use Memorex.
Only had one time where the Memorex disks would not do the advertised burning speeds, so had to lower it to like 2x to be safe.

Lots of people and places say Verbatim but I bought a 100 pack of them to try and about 6 or 7 turned into bad burns. I hardly ever had the problem with the so called bad cheap media from Memorex. Here is another good site for burning Myce.com. Their forum for media Blank Media - Club Myce. I doubt I will buy Verbatim again. I got some Taiyo Yuden to try hopefully the will be better. Taiyo Yuden is suppose to be the best or was the best. Falcon/FTI Pro is suppose to be real good to. What I like about Taiyo Yuden and Falcon is that you can get them in a hard coat. The hard coat helps protects them for scratches.
