Burn music on cd disc

#1

Hi… I’m new with computers and all the nice things you can do with them . I would like to know what brand of CD disc are good to buy for burning ?

Thank you .

Taiyo Yuden is the most recommended type of cd. They are getting harder to find locally, but you can still find them under the Maxell Pro line and sometimes you can find old stock of Sony music cds that are TY. Look on the label of the cds and make sure it says Made in Japan. Taiyo Yuden are only manufactured in Japan.

It is easier to locate them online. If you are in the US, you can order them from rima.com or supermediastore.com.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Definitely Taiyo Yuden :iagree:

As Kerry said, look on the packaging for Made in Japan.

As well as the US links given above - if you’re in the UK, you can often find TYs under the Verbatim brand (again, look for Made in Japan). And www.svp.co.uk have a huge selection of TY discs online.

Here is one link for NCIX: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=28074&vpn=TAIYO/0001&manufacture=Taiyo%20Yuden

This looks like a better deal, but I don’t know this online merchant: http://www.blankmedia.ca/proddetail3.asp?id=1220

Hi … I did finally get those disc from Ncix . I notice these disc do not have anything but a few numbers on them . Did I get rip off or is that how they are ? They are the ones from Kerry link from Ncix … There no made in Japan but the plastic wrapper show Taiyo Yuden but nothing but numbers on the disc . Your thoughts ?

BTW Thanks for the link for the software burner but, I have Nero 8 if that any good ?

Thanks

Yo fredharvey-

Yup - you have true Taiyo Yudens if they have a 13 digit stamping code - usually with a number - letter - three numbers - letter - balance numbers - and a really shiny surface

If you haven’t read by now - recommend burning your audio at 16x and your data at 24x for superb results-eh

(You may also want to try Exact Audio Copy - an excellent and free burning program you can find at www.exactaudiocopy.de )

Yep that what I have 13 digit >> NE873A0303980 <<< right in the centre .

On the side that not being written on is it okay to write with a mark on it ?

Thanks for your tips in how to do and the software :cool:

Yo fredharvey-

Grab a fist full of Sharpies and write away - multi colors are cool too-eh!!

(btw - still trying to figure out why you would pay NCIX almost twice as much as Newegg wanted for the same exact CD-R’s-eh??)

Oh , I didn’t notice them on Newegg site . If they are there and they are cheaper ? Mark it down as live and learn for me :o

Can you provide a link to them from them ? And thanks for answering my other question toward the marker . :cool:

Sorry I didn’t make myself clear . Can you show a direct link for them bigmike ? Because I never notice newegg had any Taiyo Yudens when I surf their list . Am I wrong ?

Thank you .

yo-

My bad (maybe) - confused them with these:

http://www.blankmedia.ca/proddetail3.asp?id=1220 ($12 for 50 cakebox)

and these:

http://www.blankmedia.ca/proddetail3.asp?id=51 ($36 for 100 cakebox)


#18

Thanks for the links but in my opinion those don’t look the same as to what Kerry56 in post # 5 show . Kerry link is what I got. I could be wrong because I don’t see green more like blue at the bottom . Who knows ?


#19

Yo-

Your money - not mine - however - Taiyo Yuden CD-R’s from a reliable vendor are still Taiyo Yudens-eh!!

(btw - my 250 or so TY’s could be called either light blue or light green - depending on the light - because the surface is iridescent-eh)

I totally agree with you but what i’m suggesting is maybe they are different type . I mean the ones I have are premium type . From what I see from this site is that TY do have different types . But I will next time view these other types . Thanks
