    OK.. after several years of good luck with these I just hit a bad batch.

    I have 2 spools that when instructed to Nero to burn at 8X - Nero automaticly slows down to 4X after the lead-in, and burns the tracks at 4X.

    (HOW does Nero know to do this??)

    I've done a few A-B comparisons with another spool - I'm SURE it's the disks as the the thing don't happen when I use the older Fuji spool. <sigh>

    WTF???

    I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner, frankly. Fuji, by the way, at one time had its media made by Taiyo Yuden. Then Taiyo Yuden started to dump the stuff it saw unfit to sell itself onto Fuji (this was still better than average). And now Fuji typically doesn't sell anything worth using anymore.

    You were probably use to using Fuji when it was made by Taiyo Yuden.

    I haven't seen where your can buy Maxell BQ. If you can afford them.

    Well, I don't live in the U.S., but there appears to be a store locater here:

    http://www.maxell-usa.com/locator.aspx?id=-2;0;0;0&a=locator


    That said (this appears to be a Canadian site that will ship to the U.S.), this may be of interest:

    http://www.us.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=16377&vpn=635070&manufacture=MAXELL

    http://www.us.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=21283&vpn=635070/12&manufacture=MAXELL

    That probably isn't an ideal solution if you're in the U.S. though. I'm sure someone sells it somewhere.

    Maxell Broadcast Quality media is expensive stuff.

    Verbatim does tend to be better (especially Verbatim +R made by CMC).

    I'll stick with Taiyo Yuden for the price vs. quality ratio.

    Verbatim or Ty are always reliable.
