Maybe i recieved a bad batch but since i started using these discs (mainly for audio cd's) i've had nothing but coasters. Every single disc has written without error using a variety of burning software but when i have attempted to play the cd back in a cd player it will either not read at all or read a few tracks for a few seconds before spitting it out.
I've never had a problem with Maxell media before so i'm putting it down to a bad batch. (i'm not sure if this means anything but these discs are the most see through i've come across, the cd "shiny" layer is ultra thin, so possibly the laser is going through rather than bouncing back?)
I'll give these a miss next time.
