Recently i posted some crappy TY-made Fuji, which was limited to one batch. Last week I was in a store and picked up some on-sale Fuji.
It’s the colored type media, marked 40x, has a spiral swoosh of colors on the back in blue, orange, green, etc. Out of the 8 or so that I’ve used, 2 failed during the burn (“write error”). Here are 2, burned at 40x and 32x. The ATIP on these discs is identical to the newest 48x TY media.
Burned at 32x
This is not good. It’s interesting to note that the 2 failures and these 2 tests were all on discs that had blue color on the back. I also tested one with orange color, and it was flawless. Two with dark green were much better, but still had errors late in the burn.
do you suppose the color on the back is the problem? You can clearly see the swoosh when you hold them up to light and look from the burn-side.
