Well, the blanks I have in stock at the moment are gold, but I have used
the green before, with no apparent difficulties or differences.
Does your drive do better with the gold than the green, or is it just
difficult with all CD-Rs?
I have, what I consider to be a fairly expensive Philips CD-R and have had
no problems that traced back to the drive as the culprit. I have had my
fair share of corrupted files and the odd CD damaged in shipping, but
nothing drive specific.
What kind of CD-ROM drive do you have, and how is it interfaced?
The only failure I ever had with a burn session was caused by the ide
controler going through a reset cycle during the burn.
