    Color of cd-r doesn't make any difference to laser lens, the manufacturing quality does.

    Well yes it is true that the color on the data recording surface does not affect playback, but black colored cd's (on the data side) give protection against fungus, (I have 2 or 3 non black cd's with that kind of problem which makes them unreadable), So if you buy black colored cd's you will have protection against fungus on your cd, I personally recommend Smart buy Black (manacfured by prodisc).
