Does anyone else have problems with the Turbo CD unit reading CD-Rs? My turbo plays the original Ys III CD that I have just fine but I don't want to play my original TG-CD's anymore for fear of scratching them. I've tried Maxell CD-R's, HP CD-R's and Verbatim. Is there a certain brand that works best? What is the best program and write speed to burn these games at? I even went as far as having my CD-ROM unit repaired. It works flawless with normal TG-CD games. The CD-R's I burn work fine in Magine Engine too.

I have a CD-R for a game that works like crap in my Turbo Duo. It is unmarked, has no logo, and I don't know what kind of disc it is. Maybe it is just a bad copy. However, for all my game discs that I burned myself from real games I used Memorex discs and Record Now 7, with a burn speed set at 48x or max. This has never failed me, and the games I have burned this way run perfectly in the Duo. I also use the same program to burn my Falcom DVD-ROM games, and they run flawlessly too.
I have no idea if a certain brand of disc works better than another, but this is what works for me. I have limited technical knowledge in this area, but maybe this can help.
If your system cannot run any CD-R you throw at it regardless of burning speed/brand, it cannot read any CD-R period.
Brand and burning speed has no significance whatsoever. Either it can read CD-Rs or it cannot. It's a gamble. Some units do it, some don't.
My PCE Duo could read CD-Rs somewhat well, but then the laser died completely (probably because I used CD-Rs), so I bought a new HOP-M3 laser unit and now it works great. It reads all discs and it never fails. The loading times are minimal. Replacing the laser unit is really easy, anyone can do it.
