etc.

Search function doesn’t damage your input devices btw., and it won’t make you pregnant either. Hell, you won’t even have to itch your butt.

Yo bristolbob-

My experience - and backed up by several others is that the 3500 (of which I have two) tends to favor -R’s and is hit and miss on +R’s-

I have successfully used (listed in my preferences):

Taiyo Yuden 8x -R’s
Ritek 8x -R’s
BeAll 4x -r’s

All with no coasters and 100% good burns-

I got $hit burns with my Prodisc 8x +R’s (have their 8x -R’s on order and will have in hand in a couple of days)-

Happy Burnin’

Mike
