Burning at 52x is not a good idea, problems crop up after about 65 minutes.

This is a 40x burn though, and it looks good.

I am providing these results from CDRs burned AT LEAST 2 years or so ago. They have been kept in CD Cases or CD Wallets for the duration, and NO physical damage is on them. All CDs were burned with either a Ricoh 6200A (latest firmware), Ricoh 7040A (latest firmware), or Ricoh 7200A (latest firmware). Some tests are not quite the full capacity (74 or 80 min), but are relatively close. These results may be helpful to those who have stored media on these specific mediums and are woried about the CDRs data corruption.

Drive- 48125W - VS08, 700MB image
This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 26s 66f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = CMC,Imation
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 48X

Oh-oh, here we go! This was sold as Staples 48x media.

These fail completely at 48x. The Quality Check display is a little difficult to read here, but there are red sectors at the end. The disc also failed the file test in ScanDisc, and the last 4-5 sectors are unreadable in ScanDisc also.

These were sold as TDK 48x media.

Sold as Imation 48x. These carry the same ATIP as some TDK discs I also tested, but the results are very different.

This media would certainly fall into the “crap” category.

Back to the same ATIP as the TDK and Imation. But this is clearly not the same media as either of those.

This is the worst media I have seen for a while. Note the read speeds and red (unreadable) sectors. My 48125W slowed to 0.4 speed and was still trying to read this mess when I aborted the test. I burned a second CDR just because I was having trouble believing this media could be so bad, and it came out much the same. I also confirmned this test in my LTD-166D DVD drive, same results.

This media will not burn all the way to 52x. At about 96%, (49x), the drive slows and finishes the burn at 40x. Total burn time: 2:40
