Hello there. First time posting in forums such as these, though I’ve been lurking here and there for awhile now. I’ve noticed recently how people have been downing CMC. I’ve been buring since the days of 2x, which was (whew) a LONG time ago by my standards. I never really thought twice about media until I got my GCE-8320B (LG) upgrading from my lil 4x :p.
However recently media has become a big thing with me. I have noticed that the vast majority of the CD’s I have been purchasing have been CMC. Don’t get me wrong, though, I have (by my standards?) never had a problem with these CDs. The last 4 spindles I purchased were 100pk TDK (CMC) and one 100Spindle of Phillips CD-R80 (40x certified) Media w/ blue stripe (CMC)
Thats why I was so amazed when I came here and found so many CMC bashing threads. (or at least, upset users ;)) I havent yet burned a CD with my new MSI Dragonwriter (48x16x48x), because I didnt want to ruin my luck with these CMC cds
Now, this may be n00bler, but is there a certain utility ( i keep hearing scandisk but i am at a loss) to search for specific errors (ie c1/c2)
Also - one last thing - Has anyone had luck with Acer manufactered CDS? One ACER CD was bundled with my dragonwriter. If you have had a good experience, what brand was it, and does that brand only use acer?
Thanks - Soul
