Default Black cd-r's questions/comments

I hear that black cd's are more tolerant to scratching and what not. I'm planning to re-catalogue my mp3 collection upon the arrival of my mp3 changer for my car.

Has anybody seen black/silver cd's rated higher than 24X?

Any truth to the claim that black cd's are more tolerant to scratches?

Hi EarlThePearl and welcome to Tech Forums.

The highest ive seen black cdrs are 20X but there might be higher ones i dont now.

And yes i think they are more tolerant to scratches. Ive only ever used them for console games.
