Disc Quality

The high demand and dramatic increase in CD media,

plus the competitive pressures to squeeze out

every possible cost and improve the profit margins

have given rise to many manufacturers of CD related

media. To help reduce the costs of increasing

capacity, many of these firms have relocated their

old manufacturing lines and hired staff that learn

on the job.

The biggest problems with CDs occurs when discs are

produced using older equipment then end up failing

when you try to use them. Luckily, most of these

types will fail when you first try to record on

them. There is however, a likelihood that the disc

will complete a burn and the media won’t play at

all.

The agony of taking your photo or video treasures

and putting them on CD or DVD and then deleting them

from your camera or computer only to realize that

the copy is corrupted is far too much to risk. The

brand name company’s such as Verbatim choose to

guard their reputation for quality and durability

by using only advanced recording dye and other

types of technology to produce high speed discs.

The stability of the recording dye is very critical

as heat, humidity, oxygen, and even UV light can

degrade the dye. Verbatim research has also proven

there is a strong correlation between the production

and bonding processes of disc quality.

For data and personal pictures that are important,

you should always buy quality CD media. Then,

before you go ahead and delete the source file,

trying playing the disc back to ensure that it

copied correctly. This way, you won’t have to

worry about losing your precious files and photos

when you remove the source from your computer.
