Hi, I just bought a bunch of Ritek unbranded CD-Rs from www.WCWMedia.com I used Alcohol 120% which gave me the following ATIP info: ATIP Lead-In: 97m27s18f ATIP Lead-Out: 79m59s74f (LBA: 359999) Media Manufacturer: Plasmon Data Systems Ltd Recording Layer: Cyanine Material Media Type: CD-R Media Sub Type: 04H Indicative Tardet Write Power: 05H Reference Speed: 00H Unrestricted Use Disc(URU): 00H A1/A2/A3: 000000h/000000h/000000h Ok, so they don't appear to be Ritek, like they should be. Who the hell are Plasmon Data Systems? Have I been ripped off? Also the discs were stated to be 48X, but when I try to burn them using Nero, Alcohol 120% or Easy CD Creator, the Max speed is 8x. The max speed of the CDWriter is 40x. But in a different CDWriter (whos max burn speed is 16x) I get a max speed of 16x. Never had this problem before with other media. Any ideas as to wots going on? Cheers.
