I wouldn't have bought this as I was trying to find a cheaper recordable cd but I am glad I bought this though. I never had any problem writing on this CD. The store I bought this offered to sell a pack cd into per cd, a little expensive for my part but since I do not need a lot of CDs anyways then this is better comparing to buying a lot I will not use.
What I like abou this CD is that it is gold, although this is just 700mb, my daughter's pictures are clearly captured and I did not have problems with corrupted file transfer. There are other recordable cds I can buy however because they are so cheap, the tendency is that after few uses, the CD will not work anymore but Philips did great with this CD because I never had any problem like that eventhough my daughter tends to play with her cd case and more often than not scatter the recordable cds on the floor.
My previous Nanny tried to place alcohol on this CD and surprisingly, it still works eventhough she almost soak this. I was even afraid that all my daughter's pics will be lost when she did that. But to her relief the CD still worked.
Apart from the price, everything is great with this recordable CD.
