Memorex CD-R 52X

Postby SkaarjMaster on Tue Dec 12, 2006 10:30 am

Just wanted to know if this CD-R is any good. Someone burned some music for me (special compilation of various songs) on it and was wondering if I should copy it to a better quality CD-R or just keep it for now. Here's the info from a combined run of disc information in Nero InfoTool and CD-DVD Speed:

Usage: General
Support Speeds: 16X-12X-52X-48X-40X-32X-24X
Blank Capacity: 79:59.70 (703 MB)
Manufacturer ID: Ritek (97m15s17f)
Recording Layer: Dye Type 7: Short Strategy (Phthalocyanine)

Codes written on CD-R:
RFD80M-75321 80 33
E309JS603165154G11

Thank you.

expected lifespan of 2-5 years, unless it's defective right at the beginning (which is not overly common with Ritek CD-Rs, but I've had it happen). At the 2 year mark, start checking on it every few months, or re-burn it.

OK, since it's a mix CD of sorts, I'll rip the files to my computer and if it needs to be reburned I'll try from the CD first and if no success then burn the files from the computer. Thanks again guys! :D
