Carry DVD-RW media inside Best Buy stores.

Status: Tell Us More

Currently Best Buy has a limited selection of CDRW Media , CDR Media and DVDR media inside its stores. However I don't see any love for DVDRW discs. Could you guys put in a word with the buying managers to possibly carry these in stores? I work with virtual ISO images and I love the ability to erase discs and using them again for the stuff I work with.

I wish that our stores could carry all of the great merchandise that I'd like to find easily and readily available too, but space is always at a premium. Who else would like to see DVD-RW media carried in our stores?

Personally I found optical disks to be unreliable... I now use USB thumb drives for transfers, especially when I find 4gb disks don't hold enough.

I also gave up on RW disks years ago when USB drives started getting so large and inexpensive.

 

If are using disks over and over you should also consider a USB drive.  Not only are the are they more portable they are a lot faster.

 

I used to burn all our photos to DVD.  I even got my wife a nice case to hold them all.  So for Chirstmas 2 years ago I got her a 64 GB Jump drive and transferred thousands of photos to  a single little device that can be searched a lot faster.

128GB USB3.0 thumb drives run for $30 now, approximatly the cost of a 100spindle of DVD-RW's. It's just not economical to burn discs anymore.

I have been working on the idea of ripping my CD collection to WAV Lossless and am concerned about storage.

 

So now that school is out I am going to pay my daugter to rip em for me.

 

256 gb SSD external drive. Only $130

Only USB 3 connection but that would be great for connecting to a computer to play music.
