Can anybody tell me whether I can get 800 mb cdr-s in retail stores? I tried going to BestBuy, CircuitCity, Compusa, Walmart... Never found ones, most of the times was even insured by sales persons, that those cd-s do not exist :). I don't want to buy online, since I need only 10-15 of those and with shipping they are going to cost me arm an leg.

I did. Nothing on pricegrabber and quite few offers on pricewatch.

I've never seen them in retail stores, but you might want to try Office Depot, OfficeMax, and your various local computer stores.

I think CompUSA used to sell them... actually I know they did, since my friend still has some of their branded 99min CD-Rs

Up here in Canada we can now buy 90min CD-Rs retail from London Drugs... who used to also assure me that they didn't exist.

Of course!

Actually, no. Not if you like buying CD-Rs, we have an extra $0.21 per CD-R levy on all our CD-R/RW media!

You may just need to buy the media online... I'm sure you can find a place that sells them for a good price, and shipping isn't usually TOO bad.

Yes, but isn't it legal to download through p2p then?
