I've been "bitten" by buying CR-Rs on sale. I have had the best luck
with Imation.   Often CD mfrs put their poorer quality CD-Rs on sale for
use by those who simply want to record music but for important data
files they often cause problems.

think part of the problem is that back then we only had slow burners and

the CD-R blanks were made for that. Now we have high speed burners and
it's getting harder to find blanks made for the more reliable slow speed

burning. Burning a high speed blank with slow speed is going to result
in non-standard pit size."

I use an HHB Burnitt CDR 830. I think it would be described as a slow
burner? So far I have had no problem with archive material but my oldest
material is only two years old. For CDr's I always buy the best deal at
Radi Shack! Can anyone recommend reliable CDR's for my unit? You could
say that I am burning with anticipation.
