I purchased some PCline blank CDR's recently,after burning to these disks I found some to be ok and some not ok.Has anybody else used these blank cdr's or can someone recommend some really reliable brands to burn to.

Use the `datasafe` discs, i have used hundreds over the years and never any problems.

You can always find cheap yet quality disc at your local computer fair.

For 18 months now I have used nothing but Verbatim without a single failure.

I know I'm going to wish I hadn't said that now :o)

i think this is a case of you get what you pay for. ive always used Imation, Verbatim or Philips without any failure.

Also, what speeds are you burning at? if you write at too fast a speed, ie 52x, this could cause failures. try dropping the speed down to say 24x and see if this makes any difference.

Have a look at the worst, average and best CD media producing factories worldwide here:

and who rebadges such products under their own brand names.

Very enlightening....
