Hi, We are not aware of any technical research ever made into hhb discs. And hearsay doesn't offer much comfort. First questions among many are, where and how are they stored, are other discs among them rotting and who sold them to you?In some tests we have seen in the past, hhb discs out perform others but I don't
have that information to hand. If you have 400 cds then it could be possible they all or part came from a bad or outsourced batch. Are there any cd pressers on this list?We have had both good and bad results from hhb discs but this sample is thousands over 4/5 years. Our experience of unreadable discs is that if its really flaky either send it to data recovery as that is now an option or try old drives akin to dats.Please keep us updated.alex.Message Sent with NotifySync on Blackberry

Subject: RE:[ARSCLIST] quality of HHB CD-Rs?
Does anyone have any experience, good or bad, with HHB brand CD-Rs?
We have a large batch of them here that seem to be showing signs of
data rot, though some are in better shape than others. I'd never run
across this brand before, so I wondered if maybe it was known for
being unreliable. However, I've just found out that the company also
makes CD recorders and other equipment, so maybe not.
