  • Introduction
    At the moment there is a lot of talk about which is the best CD-R Media on the market today. Usually people are talking of a certain CD brand being the best but they should tell you which is the best factory manufacturing these CD-R's.

    There are at the moment around 250 different CD-R brands on the market but there are ONLY about 16 manufacturers making all these CD-R's. So when buying CD-R's it's wise to check the factory where they are from, especially with the flood of NoName CD-R's which are usually of lesser quality as they have to be cheap.

    Feurio! or CDR Identifier can be used to check which manufacturer made the CD-R. At the moment only a CD-Writer is able to retrieve this information, but not all of them. The Yamaha writers are able, the HP4020i is not. Check the CD-Writer Data Base list to see which CD-Readers are able (check for Vendorcode).

    Keep in mind that some CD Brands tend to change from one factory to another once in a while usually without changing the CD Layout & covers.
