I got a batch a year ago and after some checking around I found others shared your opinion. I use mine for music to be played in my car. Anything gets worn in the car anyway and usually loss there is no big deal.

i think i am going to give them away to someone who can use them

or use them as target pratice with a .45 :slight_smile:

At 16X on my Plextor they are OK. Keep them, you never know how your next drive will react to them. BTW, they are great for carpet coasters.

I had very bad experiences with old lead data’s CD-R’s as well… the old “Silver Blue Professional” discs, 16x speed discs… they were a nightmare!
Only one word: DATA LOSS. they didn’t seem to last longer than a year! without being used a single time… :o :o

Still got 2 empty ones lying around, can try them for audio but the chances are very small that my HIFI can read them properly 'coz it hates the old “Silver Blue” dye-types… it had probs with the old Verbatim pastels 40x rated (TY which are great for data) too. :eek:

Don’t burn any important data on these ones unless you got a backup! :bigsmile:
Regards

i burn data to dvd’s, i use cd’s for audiop backups for cars and cd players

but like i said, off to someone else that can use them :frowning:

I have some of these CD-R’s also.
They are very crap quality and do not work very well on most burners.
Definitely not “52x” capable IMO.
