Subject: [ARSCLIST] CD-R Error rates
I was wondering if anyone on the list has had recent experiences with the
CMC Pro CD-Rs. CMC is the successor to Taiyo-Yuden/JVC and is using the
original TY manufacturing process. I always check errors on CD-Rs I make
using Nero DiscSpeed V. 7.2. On the original TY/JVC discs, C1 errors would
be less that 1000 per disc, and often less than 500. I the first batch of
200 CMC disc I bought two years ago performed equally well. But, two weeks
ago I ordered 200 more CMC CD-Rs and I'm finding that the error rates are
higher than they used to be. 2000 errors or more per disc is typical on the
ones I just bought. Granted, these are all C1 errors, which are all
correctable, and I've had had only a couple of actual failures. But, it
concerns me that the errors are roughly double what they used to be with
these discs, and I'm wondering if other users have noticed any decline in
CMC's quality control.
Has anyone used the Falcon Premium CD-Rs? They claim extremely low error
rates, and I'm wondering how they compare to the current crop of discs from
Thanks for any feedback you can provide.
