[b]Hi, I ordered Fuji Gold CD-R's and when I opened the box I now have
"Promaster PhotoImage CD-r's. Here is the Speed test. Also I ordered Maxell Pro CD-R as I need CD's to put old ancestry photos on. The guy had 200 of these so I bought them all. Was this stupid? Thanks, JAS
"Sammy SH-203B" was used.

I guess I asked the wrong questions? It seems odd so many views and no reply. Or did I upset this board? Thanks, JAS

It's probably due to the time of year, being Christmas and all.

I don't have any experience with Promaster PhotoImage, but knowing that they're made by CMC, they're probably not the best choice for long term backups. The Maxell Pro discs are probably a better choice as, if I remember right, are made by TY.
