It is interesting thoiugh to see the relationship of 'labels' to MID numbers, but I didn't think these were permanent relationships, - don't media marketeers switch their suppliers around fairly frequently ??
A lot of brands switch their OEM partners very often... but many people who buy these drives don't know that companies like Memorex and Fuji don't make their own media (in Fuji's case they just MOSTLY don't make their own media). So BenQ has to cater to both kinds of people (people who look at MIDs and people who look at brands).
Personally, I think their list of supported media is MUCH smaller then it could be. I've had excellent results with plenty of discs not listed on there.
I hope you enjoy your new drive
@Scour: Still no reply on the matter. I got a quick reply only saying they were very busy and a full reply may take some time. Sorry!
