Hmm … looks like the 2nd generation Tayio Yudens are history. Fair enough. I would have preferred YUDENT002 because I have an old-ish standalone DVD recorder that seems to prefer DVD+R, and I read here that TYG02/YUDENT002 are more solid than the 3rd generation versions, and also that some old standalone units and slower recorders do better with 8x media, which would fit the standalone recorder nicely.
So if I found a small pack of YUDENT003s, would I be just as well to grab those? Or look for some 8x MCCs?
And yeah, the coloured lightscribe CDs just look so much nicer, I tend to go for that sort of thing :o so I figure they gotta be worth a try. That and the fact that I’ve only ever lost CD data on discs that were absolute s***te to begin with leaves me feeling they’ll be alright.
Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to post burn reports here because my new DVDRW will also be an NEC/Optiarc (will be replacing an older NEC with a new one with SATA and Lightscribe) along with my existing Sammy, neither of which are well regarded here in the disc scanning stakes.
