Moved the thread to where it belongs.
Well, my personal experience is that CMC Magnetics is one of the worst manufacturers. But I have not tried their 32X certified discs, but I doubt they will be any better.
Try to make a music disc and then run EAC or Feurio to rip the music back again. Normally there is several read-errors and clicks/pops in the sound then.
Used their first disc in 1997(blue back) and those discs have read-errors all of them now, in 1999 they started to make phthalocyanine discs(gold/yellow/very light green back) which is a lot better but far from the quality to most other factories…such as ritek and prodisc…
My experience is: Stay away from CMC Magnetics, some brands they have been sold as: Imation, Basf, Verbatim datalife/valulife, Mr.Data and others as well.
