    Has anyone had any problems with Smartbuy 52x discs(old design).
    I've never had a single problem with Smartbuy discs but this last cake i got is really awfull.

    ATIP: 97m 32s 19f
    Disc Manufacturer: Prodisc Technology Inc.
    Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
    Media type: CD-Recordable
    Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
    nominal Capacity: 702.82MB (79m 59s 71f / LBA: 359846)

    To be sure I'm buying new cds by different manufacturer tomorrow.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I haven't used Prodisc for a while - they are not too well available. However, Prodisc has been considered one of the high quality brands in the past.

    So has there been a turnaround? Is Prodisc no longer a reliable provider?

    Aye Prodisc, in the past, has been decent for me but as of late, the more common "Smartbuy"-Prodisc-discs have been giving me issues from left to right. Could be fluke of course :)
