okay been asked before but what CD-R media is available in Australia (seeing as they're Aussies here) ?

I tried Laser premium gold 80min cd-rs 40x and nothing was shown on the DiscT@2'd cd-r :(

the only other cd-r i have are Taiyo Yuden white printable 80min cd-rs... will these work even if they're printable cd-rs ?

thanks

It depends on the the dye that's used with the CD. Since the laser premium gold cds that you used more or less don't show, then that means it's probably using phatocy dye. You'll need a cd with either cyanine dye, super azo, or metal azo for it to show. The TYs you have have should be cyanine, and if it is, then it'll show.

Buy 'old' Verbatim DataLifePlus 16X metal AZO media for DiscT@2, it's the darkest media out there...

BTW, where do you get your TY discs in OZ and what speed are they [?]

Thanks!

dunno why, but I find the metal azos to be too dark for my liking. I stick with the cyanine. Maybe it's just cause I only do text labeling with T@2, and never really graphical labeling.

it's all about personal preference. Some people like the extra contrast with metal azo, but for me, I don't really enjoy it all too much.

Here's also another labeling tip with T@2, before you burn, go to preview, and then do an invert. What this'll do is invert the the invert color scheme. The reason for this is that, if you don't know, you'll see about a 1 to 2mm empty space between the actual data and where it starts burning the image. I couldn't stand that ring so I always burn inverted.

Poor aussies.... I can usually get them for around 30cent USD per TY, and everyonce in a while, either free, or get paid for buying them.
