Hi there,

I've got a 106 as well and used quite a few types of media without any problem - probably my fav media at the moment is red V2 Datawrites - they are 4x -R and work fine on my PS2 / xBox / Dvd Player www.ukdvdr.co.uk have them really cheap.

Umm. I wouldn't recommend either the Bulqpaq or Datawrite labels to anyone. I have seen more complaints about these labels than Princo discs. The problem isn't that they are all bad, the problem is that with the Bulqpaq/Datawrite labels is that you never know what you are going to end up with. You could end up with a couple of batches of great discs or you could end up with a batch or two of discs that are complete garbage. There are a number of other possible combinations with these labels. Bottom line is that you are taking a gamble with each batch you order. Right with that said, most here will agree that the best discs for you to get would be the Unbranded Ritek/Ridata or Traxdata discs, they carry the G03 or G04 Ritek dyes (G03=1x/2x on some burners and G04=4x) and they are all excellent in terms of compatibility and quality. Just steer clear of those supposed "Ritek" discs that carry the Bulqpaq/Datawrite labels as they are of a lower quality. Check out www.blankdiscshop.co.uk

I certainly wouldn't recomend Datawrites either, especially the Red ones .... a real pile of poo these.

Stick to a good Ritek disk and you wont go far wrong and avoid overprints
