Lidl are in just about every European country. If you're flying in,
arrange a POTD somewhere.

I didn't feel it was 100% error rate. If you bought a cd burner and
refuse to buy blanks, something is lacking, and not on my end; What I
said was not to despair of writing dvds until you had tried at a low
