My advice, when it comes to blank DVDs, stick with major brands. Also, if you have questions about a particular brand of blank DVD, you can also touch base with tech support for you particular and find out if the manufacturer for your DVD has a listing of brands of blank DVDs to avoid, or a list of acceptable blank DVD brands.
In addition, make sure you purchase blank DVDs that are designated for either Video Use Only or both Video and Data use. Do not buy blank DVDs that are labeled for Data Use Only, as these are intended to be used only with PCs.

Answer: Blank DVDs can be found in most consumer electronics and computer stores, usually in the computer department. Since prices vary, I will not quote any here. The main thing to remember is to get discs that are of the same format as your recorder. For example, if you have a DVD recorder that records in the DVD+R/+RW format make sure you buy discs that have that label on the packaging. You cannot use a +R disc in a -R recorder or vice versa. However, many now record in both the - and + formats. If so, then this certainly gives you more blank disc purchasing options. If you not sure what format discs your DVD recorder uses, take your user manual to the store with you and get assistance from a salesperson to help you find the right format discs.
