What kind of Jarritos?  I'm partial to the tamarindo and the limon
(lime) myself.

The media is cheap which is perhaps why many disrespect them but of
course that's not cool because there is labor involved- not just to
re-burn but to locate the image etc.

Myself, I'm mostly switching to DVD+Rs instead of CD-Rs (since they
are almost as cheap and way faster) but I'm finding DVD media even
more sensitive to scratches so I have to be even more careful about
who handles them and how.

Best Regards.
