    Suitable DVD+/- DL blanks for my iMac drive?
    I've tried TDK, Verbatim and JVC without success, there must be a brand that works with my iMac! The drive I use is as follows:

    MAT****A DVD-R UJ-875:

    Firmware Revision: DB09
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds
    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers,
    DB

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    The only DL discs discs I have had success with are Imation, and a specific one too. I also have the same drive as you.
    These are the ones I tried (the review is mine ):

    Imation DVD+R Dual Layer 2.4x Speed Slim 8.5GB 10 Pack: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    Splendid-thank you very much. What a fiasco that the burner is SO picky!

    Agreed, but DL burning is something of a dark art anyway, it really depends on what you are trying to burn.
