    Memorex's CD-r manufacturing plant is considered low-quality, believe it or not. Their media reflects this, although it comes in attractive packaging, not-cheapo price and widely distributed.

    I live in Australia and we have at least 48X CDR's available.... I only bought 40X's cause the particular type I got I'd heard good things about.

    Still waiting on decent RW's tho... only got 1 24xRW that came with my drive (52x24x52x). Basically the same story as iss here.

    I have to buy all my RW media online because the only RW discs available locally are 4x.

    You have to take into account that the CDs can be a limiting factors in some case where the quality is really not that good especially the cheap ones.

    Yeah and you can also play audio cds without the IDE cable plugged in.
