I see Radius discs are used in some of those tests. How does the quality compare to Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim? Thanx.

Thanx. I dunno how to read that graph. I assume Optodisc sucks. As of now I only buy TY or Verbatim.

Nah this isnt a bad scan, its quite ok…but probably I have been quite lucky, sticking to TY or Verbatim is always the best I think…

Comment: What the **** is going on at the start of the scan? Is this another case of problems due to using media that is speed rated higher than the burner (8X media in a 4X burner)?
