It says on the CDFreaks review “For our tests we used CD-R discs with a dark blue dye (Metal Azo) to get the best results. When you use CD-R discs with a lighter dye the images will be hard to see.”
But later on it also says: “… you must use the Metal Azo type discs or other discs with a dark blue dye. Other type discs simply don’t work because of their lighter (or too dark) dye colour.”
So which is it? Will discs with a lighter dye simply not work at all or is it just harder to see?
Does anyone have one of these drives and are they happy with it?
