:sad:
bought a 5 pack of memorex ultra speed 24x cdrw. burn seems fine no errors etc… while burning. when i try to boot off any of the 5 i get errors indicating data corruption. if i burn the same iso files from a different burner all is well. the images are linux livecds and a solaris install. using js05

noone likes memorex cdrws. they are worst piece of junk i ever saw. i bought 2 pieces and didnt manage to burn them at any speed - neither 24x, nor 16x nor 10x. they allways ended up with loads of errors towards the end. i tried that with numerous different drives…


#3

Memorex 24x CD-RW: Problems with all drives, C2 errors always reported when reading back the disc.
Memorex 12x CD-RW: Decent discs that should work fine on most writers.
Both types made by Infodisc…


#4

I have had problems with these ever since I bought them…actually went back to the 4x when I really needed CD-RW


#5

they burn fine in my Samsung SW-252F


#6

then you dont have the 24x ones, cause they cant be burned at 4x
