for me back at the age when 4x cdr burning are god-send, I use Acer. But after I move to north America I switch to Memorex (they are the cheapest in retail store), abut 1 out of 20 disc gives me a crc error.

But after I brought my Pioneer A-106 for 160 cdn (hehehe), I use TDK and Maxell. Never use Imatation DVDR because they have the worst quality out in the market. (average 300-500 errors IT/OT), and they just sucks.

I use Nero and Taiyo Yuden. Haven't had a problem yet, though it's only been half a year, so the long term is still somewhat mysterious.

What about storage? Once you've burnt it, how do you store the CDs?

My 2 cts...

I tried to investigate some time ago which brand of CD-R is the
best, and came to the conclusion that most people seem to recommend
Taiyo Yuden. So since that time I've been using them and indeed
haven't had any problems so far.

Also a tip: to check if a CD is still working fine even after the writing
verification process is complete, create a SFV files of the files you
are burning and put it on the CD with those files. The program I use
for that is QuickSFV -- http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Mouse/4668/
With QuickSFV you can check if a CD is ok even several years after
you've burned them.

I've recently switched to DVD burning however, and am currently
using Verbatim (MCC product code) without any problems so far.
(far better than the Datawrite I purchased initially -- they were
so crappy I brought them back to where I bought them from)

i watch and delete, but if something's just too great to discard, i burn them onto DVD-Rs, cdr's take too much space, and they burn themselves to hell easily. i use sony dru with its supplied software, and the recorder itself verifies every round of the burning so i almost never get failed stuff. which is why i use generic stuff...gah they're so cheap, there's not point in worrying about them going wrong either way, most of the stuff i end up liking get licensed, so i have to throw that crap out to get the DVDs...with boxes and everything, eh...i'm not very helpful, so good luck with whatever brand you end up using.

I tend to use basically whatever I can get my hands on at the time. The last 100 spindle I got was TDK which were of very high quality, not a coaster (although I really have never got a coaster with any spindle I've purchased no matter how cheap the CDRs were)

For the most part I use the cheaper brands like gigastore or silver top OEM spindles. I have never had a problem with the cheaper CDRs but, I am not sure of the length of their archive time, how long it will be until I find out my CDs are toast and the data is corruped.

From any CDs I own I have not had loss of data and that is around 2 years using basically the cheapest CDRs I can find. I tend to buy whatever is cheapest when I buy mine because I go through almost 100cdrs a month burning for myself, burning for a friend of mine. However when people buy me CDRs (for burning anime, I have gotten a spindle on occasion whether I like it or not) they tend to be TDK or memorex and they haven't had any problems either.

Personally I have not noticed any difference between CDr brands other than the possibility of archive time difference. As for quality of burning, speed of burning, lack of errors, I have never had an error with a disc. I have had nothing but good luck.

I think in the future I will be purchasing an LG or Lite-On DVD+- burner to archive my own anime and just use CDRs to burn for other people. It would save me alot of time and money I figure (100 cdrs a month starts to add up rather rapidly).

I use double sided Ritek DVD-R's. I used to use various brands of CD-R's in college (and would highly recommend avoiding no name silver tops, btw, since those almost always started dying almost immediately on me), but by the time I left I had more CD's than could fit in a suitcase with nothing else in it...

>What about storage?

This company called discgear makes these neat cases that hold each disc separately and let you slide a little lever to pick what number disc pops out when you open the case. Great if you never want to label a disc again like myself (computer keeps track of what's on what disc number), although I actually use cheap knock off versions of those cases. ^^

For CDs I used to use spindles and binders. In the end, transferring all my data off, I was starting to suspect the spindles made the discs on them more likely to die, however. Friction, I suppose, although it was still only a small number of bad discs (I always burn low speed with full verify...) so the binders might have simply had better luck with other factors (which brand I put in what, etc).

I use dvd-r's because i have had a dvd-rw for a little over 2 years. cd-r's, i use memorex and tdk. nothing special and both seem to work. for dvd's i use dark purple no labels that i get 50 for $44 (plus tax). i put all my dvd's and cdr's in my binder and have a database that shows me what page, which slot, what series, and so on.

I use DVDRs since I can get a whole series (26 episodes) on a single disk... I use TDK since my dvd drive is from them too... (well, it is really made by Pioneer and just rebranded to TDK...)

EDIT: Tho, I only burn series I wouldn't mind seeing again (which hasn't been released in the US yet...) but I haven't watch any of the series I burned on dvd yet...
