QUESTION - 2

What is A-?
(IIRC, doen’t it mean that A-> Very Good CD-R and ‘-’-> Short Strategy i.e. Phthalocyanine)?


#2

No, the strategy thing is a different thing, I think.
It’s called Disc Quality in Nero, if I remember correctly. I never understood what it’s about…

I’m not sure which HK company is making those discs for Sony, but many HK companies make discs with very questionable quality. (I hope it’s not Infosmart, which has been famous for making DVDs with faked TY and MCC media codes…)


#3

As kg_evilboy stated, media from Hong Kong is usually bad, so I wouldn’t touch them.


#4

Yeah, I had some Philips C08s, made in Hong Kong (before I knew any better) - they didn’t last long, few months I think.


#5

Do you have scans?


#6

The scans were horrendous, IIRC. I didn’t save any, though.

I think I may still have some from the same batch, I’ll find them and scan them a bit later, if you like (they need checking anyway). :slight_smile:


#7

ok thanks! i know i’m not going to touch them! they were for rough use only!

but anybody’s got an idea about the manufacturer?

If it’s reall then it’s lead data. Who makes media for SONY.

Put the serial of the disc up and I probably could track it back if it’s lead data.

We have lots of these Sony here in Egypt , they are as bad as it gets , I tried one with mp3 files , didn’t play on my creative cd mp3 player .
In comparison to Benq CDR 52X Made in Malysia , Benq wins by a GREAT margin .


#14

Although it’s made by Daxon, which is not the best manufacturer either…?


#15

I believe I have some of these discs, however DVD/CD Speed doesn’t tell me much…

To Ethridge3

are ur sony’s “Made In Hong Kong”?

To gaius_scipio

I think all sony supremas i’ve used are "made in india"
means they’re made in Moser Baer Factories.

It’s the first time i’ve ever got to know about sony made in hong kong.
Where do you live?


#17

Even I have used Sony Made in India
But this latest lot of cakebox of 10 CDs are made in hongkong.

Off the Topic. To Underboss7000: I live At Ahmedabad, India


#18

Here in Egypt we have to live with what is available :iagree:

I have been using Benq CD-R in 100 cakeboxes for years now and it play just fine , I once tried Samsung slim case 10 pack and 2 became coasters with the other 8 became unreadable after few months .
You should see what I do with the Benqs , I can literaly find some under the bed with no case or paper covers and they still play fine :smiley:


#19
