    CD's all come out of 8 different factories over the US who sell to all the different companies who then brand them. You can use neros disk tool to look up the info on the disk. The best of all CD's are Mitsumi Gold Archeival but they are super expensive, second best are Taiyo-Yuden Silver (both CD's & DVD's) which are much more economically priced.

    Ritek are good but, I think it is the green ones that **** ***. Actually the colors are what show you what they are made of and what determines how good or crappy they can possibly be but I can't remember what colors are the best other than Gold and Silver and which ones are crap.

    Re: Cdrs do make a difference...

    take more time in burning your cd's and they will probably play better. for example don't always try to burn it hte fastest. try a slower setting. it burns better. i'm not sure all the mechanics like if it burns deeper or whatever. but i know it burns better.

    Slower write speed = less chance for buffering or other errors to be introduced...I usually burn at 8x or slower.

    Re: Cdrs do make a difference...

    Actually, companies have only gone cheaper on making their CDs. Back in the day, they used discs with a really dark dye. Those CDs were much better than what they sell today. But since I don't really burn too many CDs anymore, I just go with whatever I can get the most of for the cheapest price. But with DVDs, I'll stick with Ritek with the G04 or G05 dye.
