    Does it look funny for a brand new, never used BD-R? I bought a 3 pack Verbantim from Best Buy locally for about $7.50 after taxes and when I opened it, all 3 looked like they were double banded like they are wet. I'm afraid to try any of the 3 I got as it might end up ruining my BD burner.

  2. Im sure someone can better comment than myself on this as i've never bought a BD-R, but id say its probably moisture that seeped inbetween the layers, chances are it wont effect playback at all when you burn on it, but still its not nice to look at when you open a new disc.

    You won't ruin your burner. But these do look defective. Bad dye spread perhaps?

    Are these LTH discs? My regular HTL Verbatim have a dark grey look, almost black, with irridescence showing when you hold them at an angle to the light.

    That BD-R looks like it's afflicted with gamemaniaco curse. Okay seriously, that looks defective. It probably won't damage your burner but just the same I'll return it ASAP. BTW $7.50 for a 3pack seems a bit steep. I generally wouldn't buy optical media from Best buy.
    For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".
