When buying new DVD/BD´s, be shure to check out if the writing speed is recognised by Arabesk!

This is shown in the "Media Info" within Arabesk. Last time I had some cheep BD-R that told the BD-Burner 8x. But the BD-R was labeled 2x-4x. With the normal "maximum" write speed, 3x BD-R failed bevor I took a look at the speed. After setting the speed to 4x, it worked. This is also important, when "unknown" speed is shown. Then you have to set this by hand.

Definitely a good point Michael. I am glad you pointed that out as I understand from other colleagues they have also run into quality problems with off-brands. It is so much better to spend a few extra pennies per disk to ensure your project goes smoothly to your audience. Avoid that special discount at your local office supply store and go for a higher grade blank media.
I recommend only using quality blank media - for DVDs I use both Taiyo Yuden and Ritek commercial quality blank DVD.I purchase mine in spools of 100 from CAM Audio in Dallas, Texas.
