For the last few years, I've been using TY Made in Japan CDRs (first Fuji, then SONY Walkman and now Maxell Music TYs). With the last pack of Maxell Music TYs that I bought at my local Rite Aid, I haven't gotten any C2 errors at all, but I noticed that I get about an avg. of about 2.50-3.00 C1 errors, where the maximum is sometimes in the 20's and in some cases, in the 30's. I recently bought a small number of of Fuji (made in Taiwan) Riteks, and in addition to getting no c2 errors, I get about 1/3 the number of C1 errors than I get with the Maxell TY's, and the maximum is less, usually around 15.
I've had no problems so far with Taiyo Yudens. None that I have heve ever detoriated over time, but it looks at though that I've gotten pretty good results from the few Fuji Riteks that I've burned. Does anyone know if these Fuji Riteks are any good? Will they last over time?
I've downloaded a lot of wma and mp3s over the last few years and I want to keep them on reliable CDRs.
