The latest 52X CD-R media I have is made by Lead Data, but have a SONY ATIP.
The quality is horrible. The only drives that write it successfully here is my good old Lite-On CD-Writers.
All other drives fail with a write error at the exact same place.
If you are lucky you may get Ritek CD-R media as I've sometimes got that as well - note that the ritek media may be very poor at the end.
