    Had the same results with Sonic 4x media but paid a lot less. So I burned 22 disks without a coaster. The kicker is the price......$25 for 100 plus free shipping. Found it at shop4tech.com

    Keep your fingers crossed that they still play six months later.

    Lower quality media tends to use dye that doesn't have good data integrity which in essence means they'll start to give read errors a few months down the road.

    You can use this tool http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/to get the manufacturer ID from the media and then check out how it rates at this site:

    Imation isn't known for putting out quality media. Consider that Ritek G04 is known quality and I just picked up 100 for $49.
