From the Manufacturer
The Verbatim AZO recording layer gives our DVD media the competitive advantage-the patented coating delivers protection that lasts generations and provides ultimate resistance to UV light damage. That’s why Verbatim’s been recognized as the No. 1 Optical Brand in the World*–we consistently provide optical media of the highest quality and compatibility. When drive manufacturers test their products for maximum performance, they use Verbatim–so why wouldn’t you?
Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), Verbatim’s parent company in Japan, brings extensive technological research and development to the table. Core technologies, like the AZO recording layer give Verbatim an offering like no other optical manufacturer. This unique and ultra-stable layer strongly resists UV light, withstands high laser and rotation speeds on newer drives and ensures compatibility with current DVD standards.
Verbatim’s AZO recording layer not only withstands the extremely high laser and rotation speeds of newer drives, it also maximizes their performance. Verbatim paid particular attention to the durability and light fastness of AZO; tests show that it is more stable than most recording dyes and the least affected by ultraviolet light.
AZO also offers high sensitivity for reliable high-speed recording and high reflectivity to eliminate read errors. The thinness of the recording layer is also critical. The thinner the layer, the higher the sensitivity and power margin; therefore, the better the DVD works for high-speed recording.
What does all this mean for you? Verbatim AZO technology translates into optical products that cost just a little more but are worth the slight difference. They are products you want-offering reliability, high read and write performance, high-quality photos and sound and superior archival protection that lasts.

I try to get Verbatim DVD-R because on my HP desktop computer and the video software I use, it is the best. I does not matter the version number of this disk. What matters is that it is 4.7 Gb with a speed of 16. You will be able to record movies, photographs, music and much more. When formatted, you get about 4.1 Gb which is about 30 minutes of HD.
I’ve written on my discs with a regular Sharpe for many years (over 20) and even the oldest discs are fine. No problem at all. I have about 3,000 discs made over the last two decades and have never found a single problem with any of them so I would say, go ahead and just a Sharpie.

Is the how the laser burns the data

Absolutley not. It’s just as it looks in the picture. That is, it’s in a stack in one container. Jewel cases are so expensive. No DVDs or CDs that come in quantity that I know of come in individual cases.

It will let you know if that won’t work!
It depends, photos are not always the same size. A 4.7gb dvd actually holds 4.3-4.4gb. Let’s say your photos are 1mb each,. 1024mb=1gb. 4096mb=4.096gb that’s just shy from 4.1gb so safe to say over 4000 pictures easy.
If you really wanted to sure? You could use a licensed copy of Nero to make a picture dvd, you could potentially store A LOT of pictures on each disc.
Check the "DVD Recording Compatibility Guide" under "Product Description". If your CD/DVD drive says "DVD" on it you should be able to write pictures to these discs.
Note that you can only write to a DVD-R once, so you need to move all the pictures you want on it to it at one time.
You are welcome. There are some folks who put music on Blu ray discs as well.
Yes, but if you’re using Verbatim, be sure the disks don’t say "Data Life," either on the wrapper or disk (on the left).

"Data Life" is a cheap product that Verbatim came up with to compete with other cheap junk on the market and is also marketed by the manufacturer under other various junk brands. It’s OK for recording something not-too-important (especially if it’s easy to copy again if there’s a problem with the DVD copy you burned), but for something as important as a computer backup, I’d go with the 95101 50-pack or 95202 100-pack. An issue specific to ordering from Amazon Marketplace sellers who use "Fulfilled by Amazon" is that the Amazon warehouse people send whatever is in the warehouse if the product code supplied by the Marketplace seller matches the Amazon internal product code. So if the Marketplace seller codes a package of Data Life disks as 95101 or 95012 disks, you could potentially get the crummy stuff – and the products look similar enough that it’s easy to be fooled unless you look carefully.

As far as playing them onto a computer my favorite option that plays most formats is VLC player and windows media player works good but has much more limitations.

I would guess – DVD-Rs are branded/marked Verbatim. Sound good?
Yes. I used these to backup video, audio, and regular files on my pc.
Info About Verbatim DVD-R Blank Discs AZO Dye 4.7GB 16X Recordable Disc – 50 Pack Spindle (Reviews From Amazon)
Yes, the packaging states you can burn up to 16X, and if you’re in a rush, I guess you need to push the envelope. But – if you just slow down and burn at the slowest available speed (2X is the lowest option I have) you’ll find an amazing success rate. I shoot video for local high school musical productions and have to burn 60-80 discs per show. Using my 2008 (yes, you read that correctly) iMac, my failure rate is zero. Pretty incredible in my opinion. I’m using Burn software (free) and the video programs are approx. 117 minutes long, so it’s a full disc. At 2X I’m still cranking ’em out at 1 copy per 20 minutes. Worth the wait, as I’ve never had a single self-tested reject – or a reject from a paying customer. In my opinion, great, reliable and reasonably priced media. Hope this helps!
I needed an alternative to the TDK DVD-R disks that I used for several years. The reason for the switch was not because I was unhappy with TDK disks because TDK disks worked flawlessly. Instead, I was unable to find TDK disks on Amazon that were sold at the same price point I was accustomed to paying, and more importantly, because TDK DVD-R disks were just unavailable from virtually any vendor. It seems that TDK is no longer manufacturing these disks, and those that are available are being sold at an added premium.
With some trepidation, I sought a reliable alternative to TDK because no one wants to be using unreliable optical disks to archive computer data or to store precious photos and video files. I mention these facts because of several failures of SONY DVD-R disks I used for these purposes.
After reading Amazon reviews and taking into consideration Verbatim’s excellent reputation, I chose to use these and have been happy ever since. Why? No disk failures!
Based on my experience, I recommend use of this brand to meet most archival storage needs.
I’ve tried various major label blank DVD’s, and Verbatim’s product comes out on top, at least for me. I’ve got movies I’ve recorded on Verbatim discs that are close to 10 years old, and they still play perfectly. I can’t remember ever getting a blank disc that was defective or became defective while recording. The video quality is very good (of course, that always depends on the recording speed you select), as well as the sound quality. And I get such a good deal with Amazon, only paying roughly $2.45 per disc – a BARGAIN, I have to say! I record a lot of movies off pay channels, and I prefer to have to physical media. I’m probably one of a very small percent that still do this…and I’m okay with that! If you’re looking for a very good quality blank disc for everyday recording, the Verbatim brand is my recommendation.
Overview: This brand has been consistently reliable. I have various CD/DVD burners and DVD Players. They work in all of them.
Pros: These are inexpensive. You can buy a lot for a reasonable price.
Cons: They do not hold as much data as BluRay. So if you are looking to store massive amounts of data, Single layer DVDs hold 4.7 GB. This product is single layer. Dual Layers hold double that. BluRays can hold multiple times those amounts (But you would need a BluRay burner.
Functionality: It is important to take note that there are two different types of Write-able DVDs "+R" and "-R". Nowadays, most DVD players are compatible with both. However, it is important to confirm that your player works with these before purchasing.
Durability: DVDs are more susceptible to scratching than BluRays are, but these have not given me any problems with regard to scratching.
Customer Service: N/A
I wanted to put family history videos and 8mm movie transfers on the best DVD’s available. Learned a lot doing research and these turn out to be the very best, guaranteed to last nearly a 100 years, others make it around 10 maybe. Depends on the layer structure.
Look closely at the labeling, and buy Verbatim AZO brands if available. Also look for the LIFETIME limited warrantee box that shows higher quality discs.
These cost a little more, but are worth it unless you don’t care how long your DVDs’ last or what quality they are.
I have already recorded ten movies and TV shows. This brand has had an excellent track record with me. Other brands have disc failures, this one does not seem to have that problem. Even though I can buy some commercial DVD’s, they frequently don’t have closed captioning. So I make a copy when the show appears on TV with captioning and store it with the commercially purchased DVD. I have had excellent, long lasting results with Verbatim DVD blanks. I rewatch all of my movies many, many times (ranging up to 200 times or more). The copy holds up very well.
I’ve used this Verbatim media in the past, but I’d been using other brands since my last go-around with these. I burn a lot of DVD media. I mainly use these to write operating system ISO’s (software images) to bootable media to give to PC clients, but I’ve also been using these a lot lately for data archival purposes.
I’ve probably burned in upwards of 2,000 of these Verbatims over the years, and I can’t recall one time where I’ve had to chuck a coaster into the trash can. I’m not saying these discs are 100% perfect and never fail–all computer media, by the pure nature of it, has some kind of failure rate and will eventually fail at some point–but my experience with this DVD media has certainly been outstanding.
If you’re on the fence about buying these compared to another brand, here’s what I can tell you about brands I’ve used compared to these Verbatim DVD’s:
-HP DVD media should not exist, period. I’ve used it while working for a retail partner that used the HP Retail Photo Solutions package and have lost track of how many coasters I’ve had with the regular blue-label media.
-Maxell’s media is generally good, but you’ll pay a premium price for it.
-Memorex DVD’s are inexpensive, but you’re likely to have 10 or more coasters if you buy a spindle of 100.
-Sony media seems to be pretty decent with minimal coasters, but the unit cost per disc is pretty high and reflective of having the Sony name on the label.
All of these brands can be found on the shelf of your local 24-hour big-box store, so if you’re in a time crunch and need DVD media at 4 in the morning, these are pretty much your only option. If time is not a factor, buy a spindle or two of these Verbatim DVD’s, and stop worrying about coasters.
These blank DVD-R disks are just what I needed for my project of converting VHS tapes to DVDs using some conversion software that I recently purchased. Every one of the 25 or 30 I have used so far has been flawless in the transfer process. Verbatim is one of the two or three top brands, and this 50-pack spindle is an excellent buy for a superior product.
Very happy so far with the quality of these Discs. I have been experimenting with backing up my movies and preparing them to view on my iPad, Android or PC. Here is what I found so far:
I can fit 4 MP4s on a disc OR one DVD Movie using MPEG2 with a bitrate of 4,000 When I did it at the default 9000 it said I did not have enough room on the disk. My intent was to gradually increase the bitrate for better quality until I could go no higher. But then I did some research and found I could be using BOV which then eliminated the step of adjusting the bitrate. All went well and it was much simpler.
I have not tried to fit more than one movie yet and I am not sure it is even necessary for me. Although I do intend to experiment a bit more. I am a little rusty at burning DVDs (It’s been a very long time). and since I had to do a little research I wanted to put it out there for anyone else in the same boat. Hope it helps eliminate some steps.
It may be possible I can fit more than 4 MP4s and I will update my review if I find I can. So far no coasters.
Been using Verbatim DVD-R and DVD+R disc since the burners became available. I use them for secondary backups (hard drives as primary) and for videos and movies sent to family. Periodically I get a bad copy but that is true of every brand; Verbatim is no worse than any other brand and has been better than some and much better than some. My copies are for personal use and are made on my home computers. I do have multiple burners available and when I have a problem I switch burners or readers depending on the problem – usually the problem reading a burnt disc has been due to the heads being aligned different between the burner and the reader; sometimes the problem is the software being used or even the hardware. Overall I like Verbatim disc, will continue to use them and I highly recommend them.
