I was going to go to Curcuit City and get a 50 pack of Verbatim, $15. Then I did a search on the internet and found this review at Buy.com KMS from Athens, Ohio rated this item 5 of 5 Very, very good media This is not Taiyo Yuden media; however, based on scan results with KProbe, this media had very low C1 error rate and no C2 errors -- very, very good for CMC Magnetics media. Too bad the free shipping is not available now. I would never touch CMC disc again, I lost 3 music complilation CD to that garbage, they were only 2 or 3 years old. (memorex). Quote: zomer Newbie 10.

Who is manufactuering Sony and TDK, anyone know? 222333444 Junior Member 16. January 2005 @ 23:57 Used the CD-R Identifier and the Maxell's I bought turned out to be Prodisks. They are rated one of the best. I might just go to CC and get the Maxells anything is better than CMC. I just wish their was more UP TO DATE information on who is the manufactuer of CD-R's BEFORE you by them.
