I am really confused... it was easier some years ago...
I used to have a 4X yamaha cd-r recorder, and I never had problems with a disc burned in it.
Now I have a Lite On 48x12x48 drive, and I am getting discs with tons of errors (discs that I can't read, etc.)

I have valuable data I would like to back up.

Which are the BEST CD-R's I can use with this burner so I can have reliable backups?



PS: Someone suggested Memorex discs, but the ones I saw in a shop were made in taiwan by Memorex USA, and he said these were supposed to be manufactured in Japan... Now I am confused... all discs I saw at the shop, Sony, Memorex, Maxell, Verbatim, etc. I think ALL were made in taiwan...

Okay, first of all.... DON'T USE MEMOREX. (unless it says made in Japan). I'm currently suffering very greatly due to some memorex CD-Rs I burned 2 years ago that I trusted too much

What you should look for is any CD-R that says made in Japan, any ones AT ALL. Failing that, look for "e-performance" or "smart buy" CD-Rs, they are made buy Prodisc, which is a very good cd-r manufacturer.

also, make sure you have the latest firmware for your model, it greatly improves the media support.

good luck!

The best CD-R for that model, is Taiyo Yuden. The Lite-On's work best with them, producing optimal results. Look for anything "Made in Japan" for TY media, or under the "Thats" brand name.

I live in Chile and ALL media I have seen (Memorex, Maxell, Acer, Imation, etc.) are made in Taiwan.
I doubt there is TY media here, I have never seen Fuji disks for example.
Any other suggestion?

Verbatim DataLifePLUS are usually not "Made in Japan", but manufactured by Mitsubishi Chemicals at its own production sites around the world. The quality of these CD-Rs is excellent

But....
some LiteOn drives can have problems with the AZO dye used in the Verbatim DataLifePLUS CD-Rs. But I've heard that it's no problem anymore with the newer LiteOn drives and the newer firmware.
When you buy Verbatim DataLifePLUS, make sure to buy SuperAZO media, usually 24x and higher, as the compatibility is better than with the older MetalAZO (usually up to 16x), especially with a LiteOn.

Better burn Verbatim AZO disc's on the rated speed with the new ones.
The other brands. Try to get the 48x Super Azo media. These ones work excellent with your burner. Check the posting of the CMC Media Agreement for 7 disc's tested including Verbatim and Imation.

Memorex = ? can be anything
Acer = Acer(sometimes Ritek)
Maxell = Maxell/TY/MPO/Mitsui/Ritek. No MPO for you since MPO Maxells can only be found in Europe.
Imation = CMC Magnetics (Very poor media)
