Are BenQ blank CDR's any good for multi-part image creation ?

    Hi,

    I'm looking to buy some more blank CDR's and came across 100 BenQ CDR-80 (52x) (ASIN: B0002MNYPO) shrink wrapped on the Amazon UK website at the following URL:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...29046/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_3_1/202-3385312-7404647

    Before I buy them I wanted to see if anyone else is successfully using them to create images that span multiple CDR's, since I have had trouble with some brand CDR's being short of a couple of MB's, which causes image creation to fail on multi-part images.

    Anyone had any problems with BenQ blank CDR's ?

    EDIT: I've just seen 100 Verbatim CDR's at http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...uc_gp_ss_1/202-3385312-7404647?_encoding=UTF8

    Would you go for BenQ or Verbatim ?

    Hi,

    I've tried both BenQ and Verbatim CDs and DVDs. I now go for Verbatim every time.

    Any reason why you're not using DVDs? The chance of a duff image increases greatly with the number of disks used.

    Regards

    Hello Defenestration,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    Acronis True Image do support both BenQ and Verbatim CD-R(W)s and you may use any of them.

    You may also find useful to use DVDs rather than CDs as Menorcaman suggested. We advise that in both case after the image creation you launch the "Check image" tool to make sure the creation went OK and you will be able to restore the image if necessary.

    Thank you.
