Anyone knows who manufacturs these TDK's 48X spindles?

Comes at both 50 and 100 packs.
Certified 48X, 700MB.

It has a very colourful writing on the upper side.

"Made in Taiwan".

Found a photo of how the singles look like.
The upper side of the spindle looks a lot like it.
The only difference as i have noticed is the 48X certification speed that this photo lacks (max 12X).

Probably either CMC or Ritek
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

I have a bunch of those older 12X TDK discs in the picture. Made by Ritek.
48X ones are available in Israel, Harrier?

TDK

It's interesting to note that the 50-packs that I got at Best Buy are made by CMC (and are crap!), but the 100-packs I just got at Circuit City are Ritek.

I had t "upgrade" my opinion of the Fuji 48x discs (also from Best Buy) - they're TY and they rock! Great for overburning (though I haven't seen anything that beats the overburning of the Memorex 48x that I got from Best Buy - haven't checked the ATIP on them yet.)

I had bought the 52x TDK 50pack spindle from Best Buy. These are Ritek brand. I am able to write 52x to these with my Liteon 52x burner.

And does anyone have Kprobe testing of the TDKs (by Ritek)?

These are really old, so take them with a grain of salt. I haven't had the chance to try the newer 48X discs. Here is the scan:
