    Most of us only use Verbatim blank discs. They are the most reliable and use a different type of metal based dye layer. This layer makes the discs more reflective in old optical drives like retro consoles, so allowing the discs to be read more easily. Verbatim discs are also some of the most reliable with no coasters/failed writes for most batches.

    When writing ISOs to blank discs for retro platforms like the CD32 and CDTV always write the discs at the slowest speed your CD writer supports. 4x is the best, but most newer writers will only allow 8x which is still normally fine. Never write the discs at 16x or higher speeds as the drives won't be able to read them properly.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
