Fuji packages quite a few Taiyo Yuden discs as well, so look to their spindles. If it says "Made in Japan" on the spindle, there is a 99% chance it's Taiyo Yuden.
The only benefit that the "water blue" media offers is a higher likelihood of compatibility, mainly because the blue cyanine dye is older than the silver/greenish pthalocyanine dye. Some older VCD/DVD players may have a tough time reading pthalocyanine discs because the players were made when mostly cyanine discs existed.
I would also recommend trying 74 minute/650MB media. Again, for the same reason as above, 74 minute media is older and, thus, usually more compatible with older VCD/DVD players. I suppose the optimum choice for compatibility with old players is 74 minute cyanine (blue dye) discs. Although, compatibility is never a given. Sometimes you can try all the discs in the world, and a certain VCD/DVD player will not recognize any one of them.
No, I like women.
