Best CDR for Liteon?

I have a Liteon 24x Burner and would like to know which of the following media is the best?

                              I own the following: 

                              1: PNY 12x=Ritck DT7 
                              2: STI 24x=Princo DT8 
                              3: Hi-Val 16x=Prodisc DT9 
                              4: Khypermedia 48x=CMC DT6 
                              5: Optimum 48x=CMC DT6 
                              6: Precision 40x=Princo DT9 
                              7: Prime Peripherals 16x=Gigastorge DT2 

                             Which have the best track record? no errors! 
                             Which is better for Audio? 

                              Thanks, 
                              John

I hope by best media you mean best burn quality.

I have used Frontechs (riteks & prodisc), Princo, CMC & other CD-R with my litey & all have burnt fine. All green sectors. I have only one TY which i will burn soon but, most people prefer TYs for Lite-ons & they say they get good results.

One of them is alexnoe:bigsmile:

I have used one Mitsubishi Chemicals metal azo. Burnt fine without any errors. They are manu by Verbatim & have SmartBurn limit of 32x.

Don’t know about verbatim datalife plus. But, Verbatim Blue Diamond Multispeed are metal azo manu by Verbatim & have SmartBurn limit of 24x.

Received your PM. I’ve added a small tutorial on capturing and posting screen shots, HERE

All Verbatim DataLifePLUS CD-Rs are MetalAZO or SuperAZO discs
made by Mitsubishi Chemicals :smiley:

Their quality is really good :bigsmile:

But Metal AZOs are very old (only up to 16x is Metal Azo), and some writers might dislike them (just because of missing optimization for this media)

Other burners may have probs. But, my Litey burns them fine.

I would however like to know the longetivity of these Verbatim Blue Diamond Multispeed & other Mitsubishi Chemical CD-Rs.

Hope they are reliable for storing imp data.

I’ll send you an e-mail in about 100 years and let you know.:bigsmile:

longetivity is good as long as the cdrs say “DATA LIFE PLUS”. if it is only data life than it will be crap.

Good joke:bigsmile:

Lets get down to real business. What do you really think about these Vebatim CD-Rs with regards to longetivity.

Just put your photos and videos on Kodak Gold.

I don’t think longetivity is an Issue.
So in 25years you make a backup of your CDR’s!
In 10years CDR’s will be like 8 track tape’s

The real issue is errs and compatibly!!!:rolleyes: :bigsmile:

Princo are fairly good when it comes to VCD’s or PS2 games
since they have good reflection and dont need to intensify the laser (thus wear it out)

but for data id go TDK Gold or Mitsui (when JB decide to stock them):frowning:

I like the Princos. They are even read faster by CD-ROMs. I am just doubting them because they are cheap.

hehe… but it will wear out your writer, writing them!! they need a target power writing of 7!!!
that alone is a reason enough not to use them, but they are great with older CD-Players/ROMs tho.
i think it’s their weird dye that makes them so compatible.

i haven’t had any good experience with them, but each to his own!

this is a good example of someone thinking a cdr is good just because it has “gold” written on it. TDK gold are CMC and are crap. i would never trust them. the mitsuis are REAL gold cdrs and are not pretending like TDK.
