Does dye transparency of a disk affect how well my cd drive can read it? I bought a 50 pack, store brand, CDRs. My dvd drive is slow in recognizing back up copies of disks, but my burner does fine. These disks are more transarent than what I have seen before and others say this shouldn't have any impact on the quality of the disks. I also have one Verbatim CDR disk with azo blue dye and I'm saving it for the ultimate backup. It's very pretty with it's deep-dark blue bottom, kind of like PS2 disks. My logic tells me that having a darker dye will produce stronger contrast after recording and thus cd drives will pick up the disks a lot faster. Also, when I look at the ATIP of these disks, it says "long-strategy" or "short-strategy"; what do they mean?
