[tor-talk] Best devices to boot Tails off of?

Hi there,

Are there flash drives that really work well with Tails? Or does it not
really matter? I installed Tails on a Sandisk Cruzer and it seems it
wouldn't boot or at least show the login screen, just gets stuck with
the blue and white progress bar. I think I have seen a list of which
devices will probably work well with Tails but I'm not sure. Are DVD-R's
the safest way to boot Tails off of? How do can I further protect my
Tails installation on a flash drive? Would doing a checksum from another
OS on my Tails device help ensure it's safeness/integrity?

Thanks a lot!
