    Kodak has announced to retire from the CD-R business. This is sad, since for years Kodak has has supplied us with the finest quality media. Luckily, many stores still have Kodaks available.

    Kodak CD-R Ultima GOLD+SILVER 74min 12x (25-spindle)

    ATIP: 97m 27s 45f
    Disc Manufacturer: Kodak Japan Ltd.
    Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
    Media type: CD-Recordable
    Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
    nominal Capacity: 650.83MB (74m 05s 01f / LBA: 333226)

    Excellent and very durable disc. Kodak's INFOGUARD coating on the top surface is very durable. In Finland these should be available in any shop that orders their stock from GNT.

    RECOMMENDED

    I bought a 10-CDR pack (made in Mexico). It is rated at 12x but the disks do not give a single C1 error no matter I burnt it at 16x or 32x (Lite-On 32123S, XSOX). There is one strange thing, however: the top surface of the disks burnt at 32x got very weak. I can rub it off even with my finger tip (_not_ fingernails). Those burnt at 16x does not have this problem.

    Is the power of 32x laser too strong?

    The ATIP of the disks are as follows:

    ATIP: 97m 27s 46f
    Disc Manufacturer: Kodak Japan Ltd.
    Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
    Media type: CD-Recordable
    Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
    nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)

    According to Kodak's FAQ, These disks should support 24x burning.

    I think it should be a bad batch because one of the disks have cracks in the inner ring.
