Although Traxdata’s are still for sale, someone a few weeks back said they had gone out of business - who knows?
I have had endless trouble burning some new DiscRites which Diskrite emailed me to say they stand by their product and want me to post some signed ones to them for testing - if they have a problem they will replace all 300 of the ones I bought - as I have had no problem with them in the past and they were getting hard to track down I bought that many.
A plextor 401240 (is this right?) burnt with no errors onto the DR’s in scandisk / quality check terms at work but my Plex 241040a now only burns duff ones - thought my writer was dying (about 100 discs & 6 months old). Fed up, bought 300 ‘proper’ cd’s namely Mitsui 80 min unbranded ones from SVP and guess what - all absolutely perfect so far - fingers crossed. Pass the CDSpeed scandisk with green all the way and no errors in the quality test. For an extra Â£0.20 / disc, and for wanting to have the data last many tens of years, they are worth it - forget these 15p cheapo crap.
Interestingly, although Plextors are picky with media, the officially supported media for the new 40x Plextor is down to even less manufacturers - Kodak is still there despite saying they are no longer making discs - and Mitsui has gone completly - what is Plextor upto - are they mad!!!
