A clarification...
DVDSP cannot produce the MPEG-2 file(s) from your raw video; it requires that as input. When you install DVDSP it also installs an MPEG-2 encoder in your Quicktime installation to help facilitate that.

You can, however, use another product to produce your MPEG's, such as Cleaner.

dvdsp can't encode

I meant that DVDSP as "a package" contains all the tools for doing so. Same for creating the menus and backgrounds and such; DVDSP "doesn't" do it, but the tool is in the box, although you can use Photoshop instead...

This is a question about DVD-R media.

I know that Maxell has frequently been identified as the most compatible brand, and I 've had good luck with it, but at the moment, supplies seem a little short. Does anyone have any experience with any of the following: Verbatim, TDK, Fuji, and Memorex, all of which seem available locally for me? Compatiblility and reliability are important, so I'm interested in any experiences you have in those directions.
