    Default Best CD-R to use with your Dreamcast?

    I'm wondering which brand/type/kind of CD-Rs are best for use on a Dreamcast. I remember once trying a cheaper disc that would have trouble booting and caused the system to strain...
    I currently use black Memorex CD-Rs, experiencing mixed results.

    If you have found a particular CD-R that works great could you post which?

    I use Verbatims.

    I had problems with "Staples" own brand, but when I changed to Verbatims I was fine.

    I used a lot of Memorex CDs.
    They were cheap and are still going (for homebrew, of course).

    It doesn't matter.

    Memorex and Verbatim are the two brands I use, though I've never had any problems with any disc's that I've been given in the past. The only disc's I had problems with were a supermarket brand, but that was down to my drive and not the disc's themselves.

    Like Quzar said, it doesn't matter.

    But I will point out that the cheapest of disc's don't last too long, and become a problem with constant use.

    I use generic non printable white-based CDRs, works like a charm

    Does anyone have a preference between Memorex and TDK? A Memorex 100 ct. spindle is $15 at Staples today, but the same size TDKs are on sale for $15 at Officemax tomorrow.
