    I assume that you don't have the ATIP information available?

    ATIP: 97m 28s 12f
    Disc Manufacturer: Gigastorage Corp.
    Reflective layer: Dye (Long strategy; e.g. Cyanine, Azo etc.)
    Media type: CD-Recordable
    Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
    nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)

    But I want to buy more and now it's all 24x media. And I heard it's Phtalocyanine.

    I actually like my Cyanine discs, they read better in my old cd players and PSX. Seems to me that everyone is switching to phtalo: TDK, SKC, Prodisc, Gigastorage, Ritek... seems that now only Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden remain...

    Well my Gigastorage 24x is cyanine, using the same dye as the new Super Azo Verbatim discs so I am told.

    ATIP here.....

    ATIP: 97m 28s 12f
    Disc Manufacturer: Gigastorage Corp.
    Assumed Dye type: Cyanine (Type 2)
    nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)

    Same as yours... Although the dye has gone from a grey-blue-green colour to just blue-green.

    They seem OK to me :)
