CD-R Media Testing
Three things are critical to the success of a data storage medium: economy, ease of use, and reliability. This collection of articles addresses the last of those issues. We examine what reliability of media means, and how it can be evaluated, along with some discussion of the reasons why media testing has not been widely practiced in this field so far.

This series would not have been possible without the cooperation of the manufacurers who provided equipment and media. Please see the list of these companies. Also, without the guidance and encouragement of some key people in the industry, we would not have the resources or knowledge to produce these articles or conduct our tests. A list of these generous experts will be forthcoming soon.
Please watch this page for articles to be posted as they are developed.
