Are PINE CD-R's and good?

I just got a spindle of 50 of these PINE CD-R 80min. They are rated as 1x-48x. Has anybody ever used these? Are they any good?

Wrong forum. Delete and post in the CD-R/RW media forum.

Moved.

Could you please post the ATIP-Information of these PINE CD-Rs?

That would make it much easier to determine the quality of these discs :smiley:

How do you check the ATIP?

You should read the read me first on the CDR Media Forum

CDRidentifier is easy to use, get it there:

You can also get the ATIP from nero cd speed (www.cdspeed2000.com)

Feurio also give the ATIP somewhere in their software

and another interesting software is cdr atip

Some seem to give a little bit more information than others…

Ok I used CDRidentifier and this was the result of the PINE CD-R’s…

Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
Media type: CD-Recordable
Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)

Any good?

they suck

PINE is crap, check the media thread, I’ve got a few graphs up there of their error-filledness.
