Once upon a time…
… ere I was a pucker CDFreak I purchased a spindle of ZERODEFEX (ROTFLMFAO) 2.4x DVD+R DL disks (ImgBurn info appended below). Is there anything that I can do to make it worthwhile using these disks? Force a slower write using MediaCodeEdit etc? Or should I just send then to the big recycling bin in the sky?
I’m strapped for cash at the present, so using them for non-essential stuff like movies and tv-series would help tide me over.
Any thoughts appreciated.
