reminds me of when I was in A&B sound and heard a sales rep recommending CMC made (Phthalocyanine) discs for a Yamaha CRW-F1.... I nearly smacked the guy, before asking the customer if they were for T@2ing. When he said they were, I recommended the only blue bottomed media in the store... unfortunatly Princo. I did however tell the guy to look for Verbatim Datalife Plus, which is what Yamaha had originally recommended for the procedure (or at least the dark Azo dye).
