The bigger problem I would think is the ever changing way we store media and so I would imagine it would be hard to find a device to read this media in 100 years.
Yes, the discs have a matte white surface. You could write on them with markers or even pen or pencil. You could also print on them with an inkjet printer that will handle discs, such as many Epson models.
It will work, as long as you have a vcr player that can connect to your dvd recorder. You can still find vcr/dvd players that will dub. Two things you may run into: a worn tape will cause poor quality, even on the dvd, and you’ll need to watch your recording format so you can be sure to have enough room on the disc.
Yes, you can write any kind of computer file on these discs and read them on a computer. This is a good way to store lots of photos or music, but you may not be able to see the photos on your DVD player. Some DVD players will play photo or video computer files, but you can be sure the computer will read them.

This is a good way to store lots of photos or music, but you may not be able to see the photos on your DVD player. Some DVD players will play photo or video computer files, but you can be sure the computer will read them. This is also a good way to send lots of photos of events to family members; you can make several DVD copies. Then, the recipient can copy the files to the computer or print photos from the disc.
Hi, either one will work fine for home movies. DVD-R is the more compatible and industry used media. DVD+R require "+" drives in order to record.
"Hub" refers to the packaging (see the "hub") in the center. Blank discs on a hub/spindle. Printable means you can print on the label with an inkjet printer.

Yes. On the white, printable label side.
You will need to have a DVD printer and Disc labeling software in order to print on any (printable) DVD/CD.
Since the surface is white and writable, there is no logo on it to spoil any printing / pictures you might want to put on it. I’ve used these discs for many years and never had any problems. The case does have a label on it saying Verbatim.
One side (the white side) is printable and I’ve had no problems printing whatever I wish onto the surface.
Its been awhile since I’ve bought these but from what I remember it was either Taiwan or Singapore.
There is no color; it is the natural metallic silver.
You should be able use any photos you have, except possibly if they are on the .raw format.
Is like white paper over the dvd
Info About Verbatim DVD+R 4.7GB 16X DataLifePlus White Inkjet Printable, Hub Printable – 50pk Spindle – 94917 (Reviews From Amazon)
I have gone through several boxes of these DVDs, making disks for myself and for other people. I have had excellent results, and I can’t remember ever a defective disk or a bad burn. No one has ever reported a problem playing them. I burn them with an ordinary Dell computer at whatever speed it wants to use.
They work perfectly in my HP inkjet (dye) printer. They take photos beautifully. I would rather have a glossy surface, but these are still beautiful.
I also want my disks to last, so I did some crude tests.
I put some data disks in the sun for 18 days and could detect no deterioration in the data, and no change in the check sum. That’s not a great test, but it’s a good start.
The printed surface holds up very well to light. I exposed the printed surfaces to daylight (including direct sunlight) for 70 days in a car window, to see if the ink would fade. With HP ink I observed virtually no fading. With another brand of ink I observed only a little fading. I did not check them for exposure to fluorescent lights, however, so I make no guarantees.
UPDATE June, 2017: I’ve been using these (same product number, 94812) almost exclusively since 2011. I have burned hundreds, and have never experienced any data loss that I know of. (I don’t check them systematically, but I do occasionally play many of them, with no problem.) I have still never had a bad burn. My last purchase was April, 2014, and they were fine.
Overall I have found the Verbatim DataLifePlus DVDs to be about the best DVDs available. Even though I occasionally see what looks like a tiny nick or defect in the media (which I have found to be common among all brands for DVD’s and CDs near the top or bottom of the stack), I still rarely get a bad burn, and I do a verify on all the discs that I burn. These DVDs are certainly not the least expensive ones available, but they’re worth it. One reason the quality of this media is better than most is that the product is made in Taiwan, rather than China. I personally avoid products that are made in China as much as possible, and will continue to do so until they learn to make quality control a priority.
I tried using cheaper media, like RiDATA, but I was getting bad burns more than 20% percent of the time, and the cheaper media often wouldn’t give me good burns at the maximum burn rate advertised by the media manufacturer. My burner is one of the major brands too known for quality. When it comes to burning DVDs and CDs, you will get the fewest bad burns if both the media and the burner are well known name brands (and both manufacturers have a reputation for making good products). Also, make sure that the firmware in your burner is the latest version. The firmware in DVD burners is always updated by reputable manufacturers when there are bugs or reliability issues that have surfaced. If you settle for the cheapest media and the cheapest burner you can get, you’re just asking for headaches. Who needs that kind of frustration, wasted time, and wasted expense caused by inferior products?
Great DVD’s! Not a single "coaster" in the pack. I usually expect that one or two discs will be defective in a pack. Just the nature of the beast. But this pack of 50 did not have a single bad one in it.
The printing is excellent. No smudges and no light spots. Just consistent color and design on all of them. From now on, Verbatim will be my go-to disc.
Packaging is good. They come on a spindle in a cake box package. Well protected, and a really handy way to store them until needed. These shipped along with a couple of other products. Care was taken in packing them and no shipping damage occurred.
I have ordered more of these, but I am also giving the 16X a go. If the 8X (these discs) are this good, I have to think the 16X will be just as good.
Do I recommend these discs? Absolutely! With 100 percent success rate, you can’t go wrong. Yes, there are less expensive DVD’s out there, but to me, these are the best real value.
…and so far have used 35 out of 50. I bought these so I would have a bit more space to print the labels on the disc which is useful. My only hesitancy is they are not labeled with “AZO” on the package as are the standard Verbatim disc packaging. On researching the meaning of “AZO”, apparently it has something to do with longevity of the recordings.
Although DVD technology is getting a bit long in the tooth, it is still useful. I’m a photojournalist who often delivers photographs to clients on Verbatim DVD+R disks. I chose the DVD+R format because they are supposed to be just a bit faster and more universally compatible than DVD-R.
I’ve NEVER had a coaster after burning over 300 Verbatim DVD+R disks using a variety of burners and programs. These days I use the freeware ImgBurn on all my computers.
The inkjet-printable surface has a nice "tooth" that can be printed on with pencil, pen, Sharpie or inkjet. Using an inkjet to print a photo and assignment information directly onto the Verbatim DVD+R surface provides a nice professional touch for clients.
I just finished yet another "50 pack" of these disks.
I have an HP Photosmart Premium printer that has a CD/DVD printing feature. Basically you select a template using their Essentials 3.5 software, put the CD/DVD in the plastic guide and stick it in the CD/DVD drawer and it prints beautiful disks. I have had zero problems with the media either in writing on them or printing on them. I just wish they had more variety of print templates. If someone has found a source for more templates for direct printing, please add a comment. It will be geratly appreciated.
I write backups of my photos, music and videos and it prints great photos on the disks. I also purchased the more expensive glossy ones, but these seem to be so good for everyday use, I purchased 2 more spindles. I guess I’ll keep the glossy ones for some special usage.
I have tried half a dozen brands, including “big names” that cost more than these. I recently got (2) 100 packs of “big brand” disks (2 diff manuf) that turned into coasters at a rate of about 2 for every 1 successfully burned. Have now used over 200 of these Verbatim disks and had only 1 coaster (think that might have been comps fault). The surface prints perfectly (I use the Epson R300). I have been able to burn these disks at 8x in my Sony burner. Highly recommend them — however note that there are two diff manufactureres of these disks even though they are all branded verbatim (my latest pack are MM coded disks) as is the case with most manufacturers, so can’t say that this is always true, but it has been for me through last four 50 packs.
The only explanation I can think of for the bad reviews (many coasters) is that those folks had old or defective DVD burners. I use LG Blu-Ray/DVD/CD burners (I have 2), and out of at least 200 of the 94917 discs I have had NO coasters. I mostly use them for backup data storage, and they are kept in a low humidity fire safe. I recently read several that were about 7 years old (looking for a file), and they all worked fine. Archival gold DVDs would be better at a much higher cost, but these have worked well for me. BTW, my primary backup is an external hard drive; the DVDs are kept in a remote location and updated monthly.
I am a retired electronics engineer, and I use only Verbatim DVD blanks. After trying about 20 brands of DVD blanks over the past 5 years, I found that Verbatim was the only brand that always worked in all DVD players. Some were good for one player, others for another player, but Verbatim has worked in everything. I make hundreds of DVDs for my church, so many different players have been tried, and I have never heard of one that did not play. They are so reliable I don’t even check them to see if they work! I print on them with my inexpensive Epson Stylus R200 printer, and the result looks very professional. Earlier, I found that DVDs with labels degraded over a period of months or years; that took about four years to figure out. These hub-printables allow me to use photos or frames captured from the video without so much concern for the part left out of the picture. They cost a little more, but they are really worth the price.
Verbatim media is good.
Amazon packaging in this case SUCKED. The spindle was shipped in a thin plastic shipping envelop. ZERO padding. The base of the spindle has been destroyed. The media appears to be useable.
