Best Blank DVD for Nav

For those of you who have been successful burning Nav DVDs to blank disks, what disks did you use? I have been using Memorex DVD+R and it works intermittently. Just want to see what's been tried and tested before I have a room full of coasters. Thanks!

Try slowing down the write speed when you burn them -- I have all sorts of trouble when I burn DVDs at high speed, but rarely have issues when I slow it down...

I used the slowest speed possible which it says is 3x using imgburn. Can I write slower using a different program?

That should be fine -- I usually use the 3x or 4x setting and don't have problems...but if I burn the same content at the highest speed it seems to be very flaky -- your mileage may vary!!
