24102B And KingPro CDR

I got some of this media from Newegg and I wanted to test it with the LiteOn. I used CDrwin to burn an image of Jedi2 which is a 700 MB disk

It burned fine … and then I tested the burned cd with CDspeed and this is what I got

What caught my attention was that directly at the red line it went from 40 to 24 … is this normal

I then checked the information on the CDR and this is what it says

ATIP: 97m 28s 26f
Disc Manufacturer: Multi Media Masters & Machinery SA
Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
Media type: CD-Recordable
Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
nominal Capacity: 702.81MB (79m 59s 66f / LBA: 359841)

How are these disks … anyone have any problems with them

MMM&M do only make the machinery to make CD-R discs, they sell the machinery to both low quality manufacturers and high quality manufacturers. So discs that is identified as MMM&M may vary greatly in quality.

My experience with most discs identified as MMM&M is thet they are normally below average, but as said this may very greatly. My experience with kingpro is that they are rather bad though, but those I had was an older model than yours(only 8X certified).

Probably the media is not that good.
