Recording layers

Could someone tell me how I can find out which type of Phthalocyanine layer a cdr has, for instance.

princo (princo) = Phthalocyanine (type 9).
Intenso (prodisc) = Phthalocyanine (type 8).

it is not the name i need to find out but the TYPE

You have to downlaod a burning program called feurio. once installed, open feurio cd writer click on the extras toolbar and select output ATIP informations. it will tell you things like pythalocyanine type 8 target laser power etc. although its actually a cd burning program, its also the best for identifying a cdr. :wink:

EAC will also give you a dye number in the writing menu… Not sure how it compares to Feurio though.
