CD-R Media comparison RiData vs. Memorex


Think all CDR media is the same?? Think again. I have repeatedly had problems with Memorex media on multiple burners.

One media that I have found to be cheap and extremely reliable is media by RiData and I prefer to purchase it in bulk from

During a recent XP installation I was getting some odd errors and after three tries I realized it was bad CD-R media (Memorex was all I had at the time)

To support my point, I just happened to notice the 'transparency' difference between the RiData and Memorex media as seen in the photo above.

I suspect that my 'writing' on the Memorex disk was causing read issues.
