Good cd's?


While i can find alot of info about dvd’s, i cant find much about cd’s, I’m in need of a good quality ( must last 10 years ) cd’s about 50 or 100 of them, wich brand & type should i look for?
Cd must prefferably have thick labels ( alot of my old cd’s have rotten labels ) and must be able to withstand a few scratches.

Burner is an Asus 1604P (32x cdr).

The best quality CD-R are made by Taiyo Yuden.
If you can, get Taiyo Yuden’s Ceramic Coat CD-R, or if you can’t, get printable.
Do not buy shiny silver CD-R if you want resistance.


Any chance you know wich brands sell TY cd’s ?

I mean I bought TY dvd’s (under verbatim name) some time ago and I know how to identify them, but I have no clue though how to identify TY CD’s.

TY CD-Rs have been sold under different brands - ranging from the likes of Sony and Verbatim to Maxell and Fuji.

But the cakebox is key in identifying TY media.

The 50 and 100 packs have a distinctive style of packaging. I’m sure you can find out more about it in the cakebox thread.

All recent CD-Rs that are Made in Japan are Taiyo Yuden, and vice versa. :slight_smile:
(Other companies like Hitachi-Maxell have stopped manufacturing CD-R in Japan.)

Maxell CD-R pro’s are TY’s and I am assuming all TY CD-Rs have somewhat of a frosted hub.
