RE: CD-R Burn Quality and actual brand (plus fakes) of CD-R blanks.

"The ONLY place I would buy blank CD-R is Best Buy, since they are more likely to not be bootleg trash.
And even then only the blue/green dye brands."

I've never had good results with blue or green dyed discs..... Even Taiyo Yuden discs have yielded spotty results for me. (There used to be scans published or posted on the quality of the burn from various media. Taiyo Yuden generally came out on top. Problem is that it never correlated to actual playback performance in a CD player.)

The discs I settled on were the Primera TuffCoat Extreme discs..... The best results so far. Plain white tops, silver on the data write side.
