[QUOTE=dakhaas;2199874]Is there no reliable media ???[/quote]At these prices, maybe not. We’re spoiled, and we forgot that only five years ago, DVD blanks costed 12 to 15 times what they cost now. And don’t start me on the comparison with VHS tapes.
We can’t have everyting, extremely cheap, extremely convenient, AND fully reliable at the same time. People who want best reliability should go to more expensive media (like Verbatim archival grade discs - these are incredibly tough).
This said, I never, ever, experienced a disc splitting “on its own”, and I’ve burnt Verbatims in the hundreds, and countless cheaper discs. I experienced splitting only with a couple of MXLRG02 and one TYG02, and this was from discs falling on their edge onto a hard surface.
Le’s not start a collective psychosis about discs splitting, now…
