Last time I tried InfoTool, I got a nice BSOD. But cdrecord works fine.

I don’t worry about CD quality. I only buy Mitsui Gold, and Mitsui Silver (80m) and use it for all my important backups. Off the shelf stuff (memorex usually) if I need to burn something for somebody. :slight_smile:

The best CDR factories are Mitsui & Taiyo Yuden. Everything else is garbage.

I beg to differ shippy. TDK has had some great CD-R’s (some have been Tayio Yuden but mostly TDK Corp) but also some bad ones (Ritek). Verbatim (Mitsubishi Chemicals) is the best media alongside Mitsui and TY’s imo. Too bad they don’t work with Lite-On drives though.
