I am considering buying a older CD recorder/player like a Philips CDR 775 or a Fisher professional CD-RW1000.
There seems to be some problems with finding blank discs that will record on these machines.
My question is which of these machines works better recording CDs?
Which are the best blank CDs to use on these machines ?
Give me several choices of blank CDs.
I know music/audio CDs work better, but which brand are the best?.
Thanks
