    Hi everyone,

    Is anyone using Image for DOS (Bootitng) or any other image copying to create images to DVDs. If so, is there any R/W DVD that is more reliable than others? How much data can I expect to be able to store on a single DVD? One of my computers has about 7GB and the other about 30GB. Anything else that I should be aware of or consider? Thanks for the info.

    I use Bootit ng, which is essentially IFD. A DVD can store about 4.5GB of data. Haven't encountered any problem with any DVD media using the Plextor 712 (NewEgg freebee, TDK, and FUJI brand). I would keep the write speed to 4x. My partition isn't large enough for DVD disc spanning.

    I'm using DVD's R/RW from the supermarket just around the corner, write speed 8x, very, very cheap and no problems at all with them.

    You have to try it by yourself, try first a cheap brand and when it is doing the job well, don't buy those expensive brands.


    Ciao,

    Smokey
