    HP CD-R "up to 24x 700mb/80min"

    ATIP: 97m 24s 01f
    Disc Manufacturer: Taiyo Yuden Company Ltd.
    Reflective layer: Dye (Long strategy; e.g. Cyanine, Azo etc.)
    Media type: CD-Recordable
    Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown

    HP has always been only a brand distributor and never a manufacturer. Still it has been one of the safest choices one can make. In the early years it was Mitsui and T.Y. and nowadays Ricoh or T.Y. The fact that these are cyanine was a suprise as the 16x version was phthalocyanine (the Ricoh version at least..)

    Sadly, HP has slowed down the manufacturing of their CDRs. In my locality, HP was in abundance till a few months back. These days, there's no HP :( Its always out of stock, not because people buy it, but because there are no supplies.

    Even I consider HP to be the best built CDRs I have seen till now.

    Have you updated your firmware? My 12x Plex has no probs with T.Y.

    yes its the latest. i have tried HP and Fuji before, both 24x i think. unrecoverable errors near the end of the disc each time. i did get the drive replaced though because it started burning coasters only.. maybe this new one can do them, but i dont have any to test.
