I use TY media sold under two different brand names. Since I do not burn a lot of discs, I buy mostly jewel cased media, and my preferred CD-Rs are the Maxell CD-R Pro 48X Made in Japan TY media (sold at Walmart for $6.99 for a 10-pack, with standard jewel cases). I have bought this media for two years now, and I love it. I have known about the Fuji MIJ TY media for a long time, but prefer the packaging and pricing of the Maxell CD-R Pro TY media. Nevertheless, I bought a 30-pack spindle of the Fuji 48X MIJ TY media primarily for media testing, since I didn't want to waste a lot of my Maxell CD-R Pro TY media. I have tested both the Maxell CD-R Pro 48X TY and Fuji 48X TY media with the 716SA, with the same results--so I know it is not the media. Also, my other drives have no issues with either the Maxell CD-R Pro TY or Fuji TY. So, I have tested the TY media under two different brand names (therefore, two entirely different batches) and with 3 drives. All the TY media is good! As for the MCC media, I can speculate with reasonable certainty that it is good because I tested some older Verbatim 48X MCC Super AZO CD-Rs with the same 716SA, and found similar results--the only difference is that there were more C1 errors! I have yet to test any more of the 52X MCC CD-R media in my other drives, but I know it is good. Also, my Plextools scanning is done in my 716SA, the same drive that burned the discs. Yeah, I figured that DVD burners in general are inferior for CD-R burning, but my LG DVD burner rivals my Liteon CD burner in CD-R quality, and murders my Liteon burner in CD-RW write quality. In fact, my LG burns to 12X High Speed MCC CD-RW discs look like that of good CD-Rs! So DVD burners scan be quite good at burning CD-R/RWs, just not the 716A!
