At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.

Damaged CDs
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   15 years ago

Sorry I haven't posted a blog update in a while. December has been an incredibly busy month for me.

Anyhow... I've received a lot of angry emails from some customers who received damaged CDs in the mail from us. We switched to a different type of printable blank CD-R disc for our courses, and apparently they don't hold up well in cold weather.

I tested a small batch of these way back in September and we didn't have any problems with them. When my supply of old CDs ran out, I bought a ton of these new discs. Apparently, in the cold they flake (the printed side of the CD actually flakes off). Well, this is no good since the DATA is actually stored on that printed side.

Anyhow... if you received a CD that is damaged in ANY WAY, just Contact Me via the web form and I'll send you out a new CD pronto.

Hey, who's the teacher here? Ha ha ha. Whether you're using conventional CDs or burned CD-Rs like we produce, the data is stored just under the label NOT on the "down" side. The down side is really nothing more than clear plastic to give the CD strength and shape. The data is "burned" on the back side of the CD-R label. If you don't believe me, see this article.

I don't believe your comment that the data is stored on the printed side - all CDs I use have the data burned into the bottom side.
