I wonder how many actually burn CDs nowadays? I stopped doing that years ago and have a spindle full of the last ones I bought via HUKD about 5 years ago.

Does anyone know if these are good quality? Thanks

I have used Kodak discs in the past and have had no trouble.

I haven't burnt a disc for ages either, it was only due to a mate asking for a disc that I realised I had finally ran out lol... This should keep me going for the foreseeable future

Cool, might get some to keep my VHS tapes, LP's and pianola rolls company...

Original Discs by Kodak were very good quality indeed and I have never had one fail, I have a few unburnt ones in stock that I bought 10 years ago and they still burn fine, however as with all things I imagine that kodak now have them made by a 3rd party maker so I can't vouch for these. Surely they are worth a try at these prices.

I still have an mp3/cd player in my car, its cheaper to burn the odd CD full of mp3s than to replace it with something more up to date.

Same here.

Is it me or flash memory is now cheaper than optical, at least for CD.

interested but only after someone can give some good advice: any advantage buying this stuff over dvd's that sometime do come at the same price or even less?

Depends on what you want to use them for..CD's usually 800mb in size, DVD's around 4.3gb in size so CD's better for smaller files/music cd's where as DVD's for large files/films

Forgot to add.....Most car stereo's and portable music players have a CD unit and not a DVD unit so DVD's will not play in a car stereo/portable player.

Seems a good deal, but like others I rarely ever burn a CD any more and still have loads littered around the house

Ditto.

In fact, the last time I went to try and burn out an ISO, was when I realised I'd replaced my PC (or parts thereof) since I last burned a disc and the DVD drive I had in the current setup wasn't a burner!

Thank you, I am aware of sizes and this is why is not a bargain at all then because the dvd can still be used for the same cd purpose. It is a good point anyway about using them for the car stereo. Not my case as the cd player would not even play mp3 files, not even listening to radio, I lost the code to reactivate the unit, lol. Must go to vauxall one day for some help

There's no advantage, the only reason to buy CD-R versus DVD+R is compatibility. If you have a drive or player etc that specifically needs CD-R.

The .mp3 files would likely be automatically expanded to .wav files when you burn it anyway, so not playing .mp3 shouldn't be a problem.

On the flip-side of that, if you are able to play a DVD for your music, most DVD players play them as .mp3 files, so you do not need to expand them, which means (depending on the quality) you could fit hours and hours and hours of music on one DVD. My parents love Elvis, and I put everything they had for him on one DVD, which they play on random for entire days!:D

Just a heads up.....I've bought Kodak CDR and DVDRs in the past....failure right is ridiculously high.

Only if you burn the disc as an Audio CD if you burn as a cd-rom (UDF) they will burn as MP3 files.

Opposite to my experience!

Why am I even looking at this. Probably have about 100 cdrs already that will last me the rest of my lifetime. Voted hot though for those that needs them.

Correct, though bobo53 is talking about not playing .mp3 files, so I'm assuming default options for burning audio CDs here.:)

Very handy if you want to sell pirated music.

I loved this too, 13 albums on a CDR... many many more on a DVDR... brill.

Used to burn a few PS1 games on Kodak Golds on my £199 2 speed burner back in the day.

Ah such happy memories...

They don't last forever you know.

I've been (slowly, it's a very boring task) transferring media I had stored on data CD-R and some of the older ones (both branded and silvers, although the silvers are worse) will no longer read.

Are the Kodak DVDs any good? 100 DVD-Rs are available at £10.98 delivered...

DVD deal

Pretty reasonable reviews on amazon.com (not many reviews on uk site)
They look like the same ones to me..

I dont even have a CD-player no more. Dont remember the last time I used a CD

At 7p for 650MB, these work out around 10p per GB. You'll struggle to find a 32GB flash drive for £3.20, but it's getting close.

DVDs are cheaper still. a 50-pack of DVD-Rs is about £7, so that's 14p per 4.5GB disk, or about 3p per gigabyte.

Hard disks (3TB @ £75) work out very slightly cheaper at 2.5p per GB, but only if you choose the optimum capacity - smaller or larger are mostly more expensive.

Yeah. I've got a full pack of DVD-rs and CD-rs that I bought via HUKD years ago. Completely untouched, never even used one X)

Ordered. Thanks.

sounds good to me

thanks, my mum likes me to burn photos to CDs as that way she can watch them on their TV using the DVD player, doesn't work if I burn them to DVD.

People with a car stereo that's annoying to change for whatever reason

Not sure about the cds or dvds but the rw dvds are awful, I have had a few batches where the discs even when new refuse to format meaning they are coasters, tried them on multiple pcs and on average I have 2 optical drives per desktop and so far only my blu ray drive can format them.
