Tonight, I was telling my wife I was expecting the arrival of a package of 3 x50 Fuji CDs and telling her how good these were vs other brands. She asked if they were better than the silver Maxell her sister pays extra for? "Sure! No doubt about it!" I went to my computer and proceeded to use CDSpeed quality on her sister's CD. I had done a test the night before on a just burned Fuji TY CD that got 100%. I took the same CD and proceeded with the test but right off it seemed wrong. I opened the tray and reinserted the CD in my LiteOn LTR-52246S and the same thing seemed to be happening... Not wanting to look too foolish, I diverted her attention elsewhere successfully.
After her leaving for bed, I got back to inspect the CD and looked at the burned side to discover the had gone thru the reflective coating and the writing could be read on both sides! I had not exerted that much pressure on the pen but have now learned my lesson...
I label my CDs only after having tested them.
Now on to check what other CDs have been damaged with the same pen I've been using for the past few months...
I hope relating my experience profits some other unsuspecting users!
