    dude.. DVD r is for only onetime writing data.. thats all and DVD rw is the costly.. like 150 - 200Rs .. so feel the difference and find it ..

    DVDr of 4.7 or 4.3 or 8gb type are less in cost.. and can be near or below Rs 50..

    Sony Dual layer DVD (8.5 Gb) media costs Rs. 400 per piece in Bangalore. It is available in very few outlets.

    8.5 GB DVD-R media costs much higher than it's 4.7 GB variant.

    You'll get an unbranded ones for around 80-100. But branded one's costs like hell. It varies from 150-500 per piece.

    @vinyas: I haven't bought it yet. But was told by a couple of vendors here at hyderabad.

    Even this 100 Rs for unbranded is costly for me. I'll go for two branded 4.7 GB discs (unless its a 9gb dvd movie).

    Dude, DVD +/- R dual layer itself is priced above Rs. 100 for brands like moser baer, sony etc. There isn't a dual layer dvd that is priced below Rs.50, whether it is branded or non-branded.

    i think here people are little confused..,,,

    the rewritable DVD whether dual layer8gb.. or 4.7gb one.. is very high.

    but single layered only writable DVD of 4.7 costs 12 or 15 Rs.. unbranded.. since i opted to buy dvd instead of 5-6Rs Cd,, so i know.. but when i asked for and 4.7Gb rewritable DVD then the cost was said to be 150Rs...

    so i am talking that... dont be confused of and DVDr ----- DVDrw

    You'll get a good quality one for 180-200. But I was offered an unbranded one for Rs. 100 per piece and Rs. 80 if I took 50. But i didn't go for it.

    @harikatt: i'm not at all confused.
    You won't 8gb dvd (writable once) for less than 50 Rs.
