Can anyone recommend quality, consistent CD-R media that can be burned at 32x-40x without any C2 errors and hopefully will be readable in the future?
All the Ritek discs I have tried have C2 errors at the end and even without the C2 errors, based on the slow read speeds the write quality is horrible. I have tried Arita, RiData branded discs and they produce horrible results.
I can’t find any TY media so what can anyone recommend? I have no idea where to turn, I suspect even HP CMC would be more reliable than these Riteks.
I guess the problem is that all the Fuji 50 packs are all .tw Ritek, Prodisc or other. Fuji seems to ensure they have the highest quality even from Ritek but I don’t think it’s worth paying such a high price when they aren’t TY anymore.
I still have been able to find the “Made in Japan” Fujis that are TYs at the Best Buy near where I live. I would still be on the lookout for those, if possible. Also, I believe Maxell Music discs are TY (and obviously, you could still use them for data also) although you would have to pay that tiny little surcharge that the “Music” CD-Rs have.
Also, I have seen some “Maxell Pro” CDs that I saw at Wal-Mart and decided to pick up a 10-pack to try out, but I cannot remember what type of discs those actually were. I’ll check it out when I get home and try to post what type they are. (Although I am pretty sure they are not TY).
Maxell Pro actually are TY. I don’t want to pay so much for them though. I have looked at a few vendor’s 50 pack of Fujis and have only seen Taiwan made ones (previously I was able to find the Japan TY).
