then we will tell you what needs to be done to get quality burns with this media

In my opinion (data intregrity-wise) CMC are to be avoided like the plague. As a general rule, most burn fine on NECs — though certain codes tend to generate coasters — the problem is, the discs seem to have a very short post-burn life. That mediacode associated with the HP DVD-Rs along with comments from different users etc can be found here.
