Sorry if I wasn’t clear.
I am looking specifically for 650MB, 74 minute CD’s. Preferably Taiyo Yuden. I can only find these from Japanese stores that will not send directly to the US. I am trying to find a source that will ship directly to the US. I don’t really care what country they are shipped from as long as they ship directly without me needing a deputy “go-between” or “middleman” service.
The only reason why is that for the old consoles, CD’s were 650MB, not 700MB.
I do not know if the difference between 650MB and 700MB really makes a difference or not, it’s just something that I have read on
forums dedicated to old consoles, but I know that often these forums have misinformation.
95% of the time, 700MB, 80minute CD’s (I’ve been using TDK’s but I am going to switch to Taiyo Yuden) work fine for me. I just wanted to see if 650MB, 74 minute CD’s burned at 16x would work for that other 5% of the time.
I am very experienced on how to rip and burn old console games properly, so I don’t think that that is it.
There are other brands that have 650MB, but I am finding it difficult to find Taiyo Yuden’s at 650MB.
I don’t want to make this harder than it needs to be though. I was thinking about using “normal” 700MB, 80 minute Taiyo Yuden’s or Verbatims for backing up most of my games, and trying 650MB, 74 minute CD’s for the hard-to-back up games.
But I don’t want to waste time and money if it makes no difference.
I’ve also considered getting a new burner as my trusty LG GSA-H22N has been used heavily, though my new Pioneer should be fine for this. I don’t think that that is the problem though because my LG still works fine for the majority of games.
The only 650MB, 74 minute made by Taiyo Yuden Cd’s that I can find are the “That’s” CD-R, CDR74WPYSBN, and so far I can only find these from Japanese sites that will not ship directly to the US.
