|Yeah, 24x would be nice but pretty much overkill for me at the moment.|
I have about 4 or 5 hundred up to 12x CD-R and CD-RW media disks by various manufacturers that I need to use up first.
These were customer return Sony,Imation,Memorex,Prime peripherals,Fuji and a few others.
I don't know what the problem was with the media? Random samples all worked fine on my systems.
The only media I have had problems with is bought Comp-usa generic "bulk" (junk) disks. Some C-USA disks have actually formed small dark spots on the read side of the disk causing read failure.
