    I need a blank DVD recommendation. I usually prefer Verbatim, but they don't seem to make what I want. I need it to be a DVD-R DL with a Lightscribe printable surface.

    Does it have to be a DVD-R? I don't think anyone makes a DVD-R DL Lightscribe. However, Verbatim does make a DVD+R DL Lightscribe. Part #96689, in 10-packs and 50-packs.

    They're not cheap - about $2.50 per disk. Making a coaster would be a painful experience. :eek2:

    I was under the impression that DVD-R was more compatible with players/readers though?

    -R is more compatible...in the past (pretty much any player made in the last few years will play both +R and -R)...but is the inferior technology. +R is better for longevity and performance. Really though you would be hard pressed to tell the difference in most circumstances.

    This list is helpful for where to buy media:

    I like SuperMediaStore and Meritline personally.

    Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden are my top picks (I like TY particularly, but they dont make lightscribe disks). Your lightscribe requirement makes it tough as the prices are a lot higher and they dont make many lightscribe DL disks.

    I have never seen a DL lightscribe disk of either type, although I haven't bought any blank DVDs in a couple years or so.
