[Hi all,  I was wondering if anyone knows of a cd rom disc brand that is not so easly scratched.  You know, the standard write able CD's are always getting scratched no matter what compared to our favorite music cd's. Any one have an advice? thanks.

Get a CD rewriter with a caddy system, where the CD is placed inside a caddy before inserted into the rewriter. That means less chance of the disc moving when spun at high speed. Which is why it scratches so easily. Never seen The Mythbusters? Wink

Well, there isnt a problem, really, with the writing process, its more with the inserting and ejecting the cd when playing them or even storing them. They get all kinds of scratches, like smudges and smear type scratches.  There has to be other better cd's with tougher coating or something.

The thin plastic coating is there to prevent actual damage to the data layer. So a scratch here and there shouldn't matter. If you have overly deep scratches, or real circular ones, it's due to your rewriter. CDs warp when spinning at high speed, so if they then touch a part of the CD tray with a sharp edge, a sand/dust particle or something similar, you get scratches.

A thing to remember: A 32x cdrom drive spins the CD at approximately 7400 rotations per minute.

Yet tell, what brand CD-Rs are you using now? Maybe that someone here can tell if it's a good brand or not.
