What kind of media is it DVD+R or DVD-R?  I think DVD-R (Pioneer) came first 
and all the original DVD burners support it and it is the most reliable if 
you are making movies for older DVD players. DVD+R is a Sony and Phillips 
design and the recording format is different.

The last generation of DVD recorders is +/- but anything IDE would probably 
be DVD-R only and might have issues reading + disks.

I have used M-Disc to archive photos and digital media. So far so good.
Problem is you need an M-Disc drive to read it for sure - what does that
mean? Well the disc is supposed to be compatible across all DVD readers BUT
I have found my older Lite-On IDE drives, which were considered very good
back in the day, have had problems reading the DVDs. So your mileage may

Also of note the original company has gone bankrupt and their assets bought
out. The new owners are continuing to produce M-Disc media.
