True, I didn't check the date of the posting prior to replying.
I actually never really had any problems with high speed CD-RW media, burning them at max. speed with no problems whatsoever. I primarily use my Plextor Premium for my CD burns, and that drive really likes those Verbatim discs.
Don't the French and Belgian users call it "hypermarket"?
They do indeed, but since RJL65 is from the US, I thought that mentioning Walmart made more sense, since Walmart is probably as known as Mc Donald's over there. Or Mickey Mouse for that matter. Or pinkish Verbatims.
Indeed, rare and valuable media can be found more often in "hypermarkets", department stores, toy stores (!) and electric stores.
I have seen Verbatim 32x CD-RW in Marktkauf, and even in some Media Markt and Saturn stores
The 10x CD-RW is the most common, but if a place doesn't stock 32x it often doesn't stock 24x either. Just my experience.
I have never checked out toy stores (?!?) for media to be honest, but thanks for the hint.
I actually meant "Marktkauf' with that "Walmart-like" comparison, our Marktkauf does have them in stock, but not our local Media Markt and Saturn stores, I've never seen 32x CD-RW media there. Karstadt usually has the 24x discs in stock.
Btw., our local Saturn store has Verbatim CD-Rs "on sale", if you can actually call it that, cakebox of 50 for 9.99 Euros. The good thing about it: It's not just Made in China CMC media, but Made in Japan Taiyo Yuden media as well, so the price is actually pretty good.
