I’m a newbie but trying to learn about different media. I was going to buy some Taiyo Uden 32X silver/blue 80 min from blank-cd-cdr.com. Here’s a link: http://www.blank-cd-cdr.com/p-slb8032x-100s.html. The price seemed good and had free shipping.
Anyway, someone just told me that an important part of good media is having a good coating on the side that doesn’t get burned. He said he only buys blank media with a company’s logo or something printed on that side, otherwise it’s more prone to chipping or making bad burns. Is there any truth to this? I cancelled my order thinking I should get some that have a better surface. I’m using them for high-quality audio burning.
