    I also have those Verbatim Vinyl CD-R, but they're different. Verbatims are only black at the top (label side), which means they're not really BLACK CDs. On the contrary, the Xlayers have black dye, so they're also black at the bottom (recordable side).

    CD(R) use IR - plenty IR filters is dark (black or even opaque for visible light - https://jenslabs.com/2013/03/04/diy-ir-filter/ ) i will be not surprised if black dye will be completely transparent for IR.

  7. I've used some with jet black recording sides and mirror silver tops - never had any issues with them. They are unbranded.
