    Ahh...I don't they *needed* a CD...I believe they even said files were fine if you read the whole thread.
    I think the OP went in the CD direction...and that's when they said it had to be a specific grade.

    I remember being told that music grade CD's were inferior to Data disks. Digital is a kind of all or nothing. If the program gets written to CD and there are no issues playing it back then the program is all there and is as good as the original file on hard disk. I have used just about every type of CD out there and the only differences I have encountered is the general failure rate is higher with some brands.

Another possibility would be to order some HHB discs - they're usually good although I don't know where they currently source their discs.
    interesting, never knew they took it that far....

    Yeah...same here.
    It's been at least 5 or more years since I bought some large packs of CDs and DVDs...and at this rate, they may last me for the next 20 years!

    I still burn a CD master even if it's going to download, call me old school. However I still remember when we did not have the means to burn a CD at all. We would send a U-matic video tape with the master to the production plant, these were replaced with DAT tapes. The only way I could give the client a finished mix was on a Cassette LOL.

    I just think it's somehow nice to have a CD master disk.

    Marias, "Taio Yudin" (I think they were bought by JVC.) would be a better choice for off the shelf cdr. Amazon carry's them. Dust them off good , and use the slowest burn speed you can ..

    I'm afraid your info is a bit out of date Mark. The Taiyo Yuden name was sold to CMC (a big Taiwanese optical disc manufacturer who also make TDK discs) a while a go and the reports I've heard say that the quality isn't as good as it was.

    They're not like they were. And never burn at the slowest speed you can. 25-35% of the drive's rated speed is usually the sweet spot.
