I don't know this supplier but this is the right brand (Mitsui/MAM-A)

Also, when you buy media buy the +R instead of the -R.  All CD's and 
DVD's have a horrendous error rate compared to a hard drive and make 
extensive use of their voluminous ECC bits.  The +R format is simply 
more robust in the ECC department.
