I finally bought a DVD+-R/RW drive. It even does dual-layer burning.

Media Cost Number Cost Per Bytes Cost per GiB
CD-R $25 100 $0.25 737280000 $0.36
DVD-R $40 50 $0.80 4700000000 $0.18

See! I'll save money inthe long run! 278 GiB or 64 DVD-Rs in the future.

Additional research shows that I paid too much for that DVD-R spindel at the store.

UPDATE 2005-07-03: Finding the cheapest source online, I get:

(price includes shipping)
Media Cost Number Cost Per Bytes Cost per GiB
CD-R $17.40 100 $0.17 737280000 $0.25
DVD-R $15.25 50 $0.31 4700000000 $0.07

The moral of the story: buy everything online.
