Best CD-R Media?

I dont really burn CD-r anymore but recently i decided to backup an OLD PSX game that had copy protection on RAW Mode with alcohol and verification reported several LBA mismatch errors, so i decided to purchase better cd-r media.

The ones i used where Datawrite, I seem to have stocked them up from previous years, and were the only ones i had.

Get some Taiyo Yuden CDRs, they worked great for … well every thing I have used them for.

If you can’t get them then some Verbatim CDRs that have the MCC MID

Also for me “That’s” (Taiyo Yuden) CDRs work perfect for any occasion and are the most compatible I’ve used.

Another vote for Taiyo Yuden.

Ok, thank you for pointing thwm out. I knew that TY was best recommendation for dvd recordables but i thought that something else happened here, but it seems that they rule the world of cd-r media as well.

BTW at the same price they seem to sell TDK/Sony and Emtec are they definitely ruled out or is it worth looking into them as well?

also there’s seems to be this gold version of TY that it seems you didnt refeence. I did have issues with gold TY on the past (but with dvd-r discs, now i use the blue dvd+r).

Hi therock003,
check this out, these are the CD-Rs I was telling you in my previous post.
http://www.e-shop.gr/show_ana.phtml?kodikos=ANA.TAY0023

I personally prefer them over any other version of Ty’s. Your next choice (qualitywise) should be the Verb’s (MCC Super-AZO), as already mentioned.

Cheers!

These Verbatims should be Mose Baer India CD-Rs. They are good but not as the others MCC. Next time try to get those. :iagree:

Sorry, there was no clear indication as to which I should have got, i just saw Verbatim, and i grabbed them on the spot!

By the way, does the SuperAzo mean that the coating is better, or is there any more siginficance to that? Like is the data quality stored better? Same question goes for the ceramic.

Cause quallity-wise is what i’ more interested. Protetion of Disc goes second, since i dont have any younger borthers-sisters playing with the discs, so there’s no serious Hazard of physical destruction. : )

Everything plays an important role in the quality status of a CD-R. The material used, the dye used, the coating, etc. I personally believe that if you stick with those two brands (TY’s and MCC Verbs), you 'll never go wrong as far as quality is concerned.
