[QUOTE=NBK;1709628]This was burned on a Plextor 12x10x32 CD burner. Believe it or not it still works. The disc is branded Memorex. It was colored black…[/QUOTE]

Update: I ‘quality scanned’ at 12x this time. No C2 errors!!! My scan of this CD-R on the 1st page was awful.

I still do not know the MID or country of origin. All i remember is this spindle produced more than a few coasters.

Durabrand 700 MB 80 MIN 16x Multispeed CD-R
Burning Drive Unknown
burned at max speed
Nero Burning ROM 6
sometime in 2003.

this disc is highly used and abused. stored in a cd wallet with the piece of plastic at the top which is supposed to help hold the cd. but in reality just causes more damage to the outer disc area. :eek:

so i am posting two scans one of the disc before the outer damaged area and one of the full disc. :bigsmile:
