Yes. I too experienced that DVD+R DL are the most early type to fail
on an ageing drive. I still have half a spindle of them, but only
for the purpose of testing media recognition.
(3 EUR as price is quite a while ago. Now you get them for less than 1 EUR.)
To our luck, BD burners became achievable (~ 80 EUR + possibly USB box)
and single layer BD-R media became cheaper than DVD+R DL. My last buy
of 10 pieces on spindle was
Verbatim BD-RE 25 GB 10.33
Primeon BD-RE 25 GB 7.60
Verbatim BD-R 25 GB 5.92
Primeon BD-R 25 GB 5.20
My oldest BD burner is picky with BD-RE and likes both brands.
My youngest BD burner likes both brands of BD-R and BD-RE.
I cannot get first generation "2x" BD-R for the old one any more.
Have a nice day :)
