The computer stores around are full of many brands of CD-Rs, however I have no idea what is the real manufacturer of those CDs until I buy them, and when I do I somehow always get stuck with poor-quality CDs.
A few months ago I bought a large pack of CDs which were made by “Multimedia Masters & Machinery SA” - From almost none of which I could read everything that I burned on. Now I’ve got a Philips pack, actually manufactured by CMC Magnetics, a firm that has a very poor reputation.
I’d like some help in how to find those high-quality CD-Rs. I cannot find an up-to-date list of brand. Even the lists I can find - I don’t think the models on those lists were ever sold around here.
Have you got any suggestions?
you could try TDK or Verbatim or Emtec. if you can find them. are you sure the problem is the discs ? because i have used all sorts of brands of CD-Rs and never had trouble reading data from them…even with no-brand generic CD-Rs from kmart.
This is not bullet proof, and like ghosters, I’ve had little trouble with even “cheap” cd-r’s. When buying, regardless of brand name, look where they were made. If china…probably cmc…ie crap…if taiwan…eh crapshoot…if japan…not bulletproof…but probably good media…
