Actually Joe, the people telling you that are also the same people "telling you that they have years of experiences dealing with problems from people that use it". The truth is they have no such expertise, they are merely lying by saying they do in order to bolster their view They offer no proof, just as you and webslinger have not. Personally their experiences are just that, "their" experiences. My experiences have been vastly different, and so have quite a few other people that I know personally who use memorex media. In the last couple years they have worked fine for me in every player I have played them in, regardless of how long ago it was that they were opriginally recorded upon. So thanks for the advice joe, but I still stand by what I said earlier. I tend to stick with what works for me. Just because a brand might be hated by some, doesnt always mean its bad for everyone, I have already proved that. Sorry guys, but my position on this is final. Like it or not. Besides I thought I already stated this, as well as the fact that memorex is just one of the brands I use. Unless I start having routine problems with them, I will continue to use not only memorex but any other brand that works for me. Rehashing this certainly isnt going to change my mind. Like I said before, if that offends anyone, I am sorry. But getting upset over this isnt going to change my mind either. Thats just the way it is.
