Choice of media *IS* important (was: Burning iTunes songs onto CD problems)

    Just chipping in here, I will agree that the brand and type of media you
    choose is very important - you buy cheapie no-names, you get exactly
    what you pay for, crap.

    Verbatim / Datalife Plus / Mitsubishi Chemical "AZO" (Metal AZO or Super
    AZO) blue-dye discs are nonpareil -- there really is nothing better. If
    you want the best, Verbatim's CD-R Audio AZO discs are only rated at x16
    speed burn, but they use the superior dark-blue dye, resulting in a disc
    that can be played in absolutely anything. The CD-R Audio also has a
    double-coating of crystalline epoxy, which means they are incredibly
    resistant to scratches and UV effects.

    Verbatim Datalife (non-AZO) and TDK Gold are the best of the p-cyanide
    (very light green) dye discs.

    Memorex and BASF are *the* worst of the big-name brands -- never trust a
    CD blank you can read text through!
