List of Scratch resistant CD-Rs?

Anyone have a list of CD-R brands that have a special coating to help make them scratch resistant on the bottom ?

One problem I find is that with audio CDs, esspecially for the car, get scratched up fairly easily.

Thanks

Hi,

the availability of such media depends on your location. Maybe you can get some Verbatim Crystal or similar. There is also a “extra protection” series of Verbatim CD-R.
In any other case, don’t mind about scratched discs in the car - just burn a new one if there are problems :bigsmile:

Several producers offer CD-R discs with scratch resistant recording/reading side coatings including Imation (ForceField) and Scratchless-Disc (also incorporates raised edge bumps).

There is actually a new company that is just starting prodtuction called Millenniata. They make CD’s that don’t deteriorate from temperature, lose their data over time, and they will not get scratched. They are the only CD that has passed aging/damage tests by the Library of Congress, and they have shown to lasts 1,000 years, thus the name Milleniata.
Sweet Action!!! About time a scratch/damage proof CD came out.

The site claims that the discs can be read like normal DVD media, so presumably there is no CD equivalent media.

I think they are just selling some rebranded MBI made scratch-proof DVD media or something like that.

Millenniata is a company from Utah, they make DVD’s that last your lifetime. There is a article about the company and their discs.


They make their own discs, and their burners are different than others out there, but it was the same thing when DVD’s and Blue Ray came out, exciting stuff, no more data loss from damaged or time worn CDs.
