#1

I was sitting at my computer watching scrubs and noticed this yellow bag in the corner. Turned out to be a 25 pack of verbatium 16x media in a best buy bag (score). Don’t remember buying it (aparentlly about a month ago acording to the reciept). Didn’t need it, didn’t miss it, thier are stacks of spindles (including some other ver. 16x). So now what do I do with it? Stick it on the shelf with all the other stacks of media. I know thier are look how much media I have threads but I was drunk (or starting to get thier anyway), bored and suprized by the media so I’ll post another one.

I’ve only got 3 spindles of blanks - one TDK gold CD-R, one TDK inkjet printable 8x DVD-R, and one TDK 8x DVD-R (grey top) - on my shelf.

Aww… I’m running low :frowning: Down to my last ten :sad:

I’ve got so much data! I even stopped burning everything on CD… All these CD-r’s take me hours to find something, It’s often faster to download it again from the net!

Total madness…

#13

I was 'bout to say there was no such thing as having too much media…then I saw drpino’s collection. Holy crap!!! That’s a really good start…now I have something to aspire to. :slight_smile:


#14

no more media for a while for me…time to play with the new DV converter and use up some of those TYs for my VHS collection :slight_smile:


#15

If any1 got too much TY or TDK MIJ or TDK Made In USA 4x,8x,16x,24x or 32x CD-Rs I could use them…
Just bought an oldie drive which hates my 48x TY and 52x Ritek Grade A certified Blanks.
So if any1 has too much of these left feel free and send em too me. I’ll take em all. lol

You can never have too much media!


#17

ran outta Yuden 002’s a while back but these make up fer it.


#18

@drpino - I won’t be greedy. I’ll take the two tubs of CMC Magnetics E01’s off your hands as well as that tub of MCC 02RG20’s. :wink: My NEC ND2500A just loves that stuff! LOL. You can definitely keep the Taiyo Yuden’s. :wink:

Let’s see. Sitting here I have about 60ish or so TYG02’s (Value TY) that I’m going to use for my girlfriend when she wants something.

Otherwise, I have:

55 4x DVD+R CMC Mag F01’s (4x) (Philip’s Branded)
110 Ridata 4x DVD+R’s RicohJPNR01’s
And about 30ish or so MCC 02RG20’s on the way.

I just ordered 200 more Prodisc 8x DVD-R’s with the Silver Matte finish from Rima.com just recently so they are still on the way. That is where I got my MCC 02RG20’s media codes from. They burn wonderfully in the 2500A so that is why I decided to get more. :slight_smile:


#19

all my media works very well at a minimum of 8X including the CMCs and when i want to get something burned right quick doesn’t hurt to have some 16X around. i just picked up the 02RG20s last week, still playing with those so hands off.

guess im just sparing my 9 RICOHJPN R01s for the sake of diversity :wink:


#20

hehehe, It’ll definitely be a sad day when we can no longer buy RicohJPN R01’s. :wink: How the 02RG20’s burn off in your Plextors? My BenQ DW1620A was mediocre with them at 8x or 12x but with the NEC ND2500A at 8x the burns look wonderful. :bigsmile:
