Ok I am throwing my hands up, after almost an excellent year with Prodisc I have given up, I have a couple hundred R- sitting here from before my bitsetting switch. and all of a sudden they are giving me nothing but grief. I am still ok with the new Prodisc R+ I have gotten, but with this incident I can't take the risk, becuase I burn professionaly. So what I would like to do, is to turn to the best tried and true, Taiyo Yuden. I already have lots of TY (Fuji,Sony,TDK) but they are not printable. My source Supermediastore has TY's but they are OEM and expensive, about .70 cents each plus shipping. The only other brand I trust, sorta, is Ritek. funny enough their 4x and 8x r+ printables are the same price. 50$ free shipping, about 5$ more than the prodisc. Also what I heard the 4x(g03) is better than the 8x(g05). But that was 3 months ago and i know how things change.
I thought I found Fuji printable TY02's. I was talking to my dad while he was at sams club and he told me they had 50 packs of fuji R- printables for 41$ I was elated, ran over there the next day, to see that they were made in taiwan. Took a chance and took em home. popped in
SUPRISE: PRODISC F01, one of the codes giving me problems and the printable surface was not even to the HUB!!!! rediculous
So if you live in the US and can help a brotha out, please do, and I will send you 100 pack of Prodisc 8x R-
