I have used Sony, Acer, and Verbatim CD-R’s to burn data. So, I heard about CD-speed here and gave it a shot. All the tests I did with CD-speed gave me a lot of ‘yellow boxes’. It was very inconsistent though. I would get like half yellow, half green, then sometimes all green and some yellow here and there. None of them were all green. Should I be concerned about this? Is my Cd-burner dying? The burner is like only 3 months old and I don’t even use it as much. Its a Memorex 40MAXX 1248AJ with a bios of ZWS4.
The media I tested was:
Sony CD-R rated at 40X (Utility tells me ‘Sony’ is the manufacturer)
Verbatim CD-R rated at 1-16X (by CMC)
Acer CD-R rated at 16X (by Acer)
All them are 80min 700MB.
Also, I would like to know what company makes TDK CD-RW’s. I ordered some from here:
Hope they are not made by Infodisk since I had initially bought Memorex CD-RW’s made by them and all of them became unreadable (CD-speed gave ‘red boxes’) after the first erase.
