I keep reading on MyCE that CMC Magnetic discs, under any brand name, tends to produce very low quality media to the point where many MyCE members boycott CMC MAG media. So I have to ask - What's going on?
CMC Magnetics now produce roughly 2/3 of media so it is becoming increasingly impossible to try and avoid them. I've only been burning for about two years seriously and I've had a bit of a lukewarm reception with AM3 media.
Granted I had a terrible experience with both Bulkpaq and RiDisc DVD-R under the CMC MAG AM3 - I largely blame this on a few duff discs, burning on a standalone, and burning on a 2004 Pioneer burner - Which I don't think was really suitable for burning the new generation of CMC MAG AM3 media...
I've had a near flawless experience with the CMC MAG M01 code, only two duffs in a 50 pack cake and all verify excellently on those discs and subsequent Nero CD/DVD speed. So you understand I favour M01 over AM3 :iagree:
So if they really are terrible discs, why is it some people have a very good experience whilst others have a terrible experience?
