    I am hoping to transfer the disk contents on to my computer at some point, so using it once is all i need.

    Taiyo Yuden discs are getting harder to get and sometimes counterfeited. If you get Verbatims, but sure they have the AZO logo somewhere on the label. Verbatim (now owned by CMC Magnetics) has been trying to (and often succeeding) trick customers into buying their second rate (at best) Life Series. Read this thread how to spot real AZO Verbatims: https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/391272-Beware-of-new-Verbatim-non-AZO-packaging

    And high quality Sony's are long gone with the current discs the typical second rate (at best) generics.

    Amazon.co.uk has both Taiyo Yuden and AZO Verbatims
