    The asda ones are too cheap tho. The top side isnt protectd, so if you scratch the top the film starts flaking off. Tesco ftw.

    verbatim ftw! Used by professionals all over the field. Again you get what you pay for with anything. Verbatim cds will last a fuckin life time and the sound quality will not be detoritate so quickly. Cheap cds die pretty quickly

    Another one for Virbatim.

    Buying cheap CD's just isn't worth it in my opinion. Especially for music.

    Also I always burn stuff really slowly, you get less chance of anything going wrong that way.

    Verbatim, TDK, Imation. It doesn't matter as long as they have a matt finish white or silver label side so they don't scratch.

    The best CD-Rs I've ever used are the Lightscribe ones. They are super durable but obviously a bit more pricey.
